Bracketology 02.11.180

Time to fire the bracketology machine up once again. Here’s the field, first in bracket form, then in seed form. Last 4 in/out are below that.

I made some alterations to my very first bracket (from yesterday, which I did not post), taking into account both the selection committee’s published “Top 16”, and accounting for the implications that I felt like those seedings had on the field’s composition and seeding.

Biggest changes — Temple got back into my field, St. Bonaventure barely beat out Syracuse and USC, and Texas A&M’s stock rose quite a bit (while Michigan and Texas saw their stock fall).
