FINAL 2019 Bracket – March 170

Well, here goes nothing. The final 2019 bracket projection and seed list are found below.

Bracket Update 03.16.190

Shuffling all over the map — at the top and at the bottom. Some bid-stealing shoves an ACC team off the table, and I do a re-evaluation of the bottom third of the bracket.

Bracket Update 03.15.190

Not as many shifts as we thought! This is the update heading into the games of March 15th.

Bracketology 03.14.19 – The Calm before the Storm0

New bracket and seed list. Not a lot has changed since the last update, but tomorrow is the first true day of reckoning.

Bracket Update – 3/12 Morning0

No time for love, Dr. Jones. Here’s the bracket update:

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).

CrimsonCast – March 7 20160

CC-Podcast-Logo---Agu-2014On this episode of CrimsonCast, we take a look back at the most surprising conclusion to a regular season that IU basketball has experienced in some time. We talk about the characteristics of this team that make them as effective as they are, and what precisely has changed since the season’s nadir four months ago. We also talk about the developmental process of both individual players and the roster as a whole, and how different the atmosphere of the team appears to be. Finally, we take a hypothetical look at IU’s prospects in both the Big Ten Tournament and NCAA Tournament, and talk about the potential seeding and placement of the Hoosiers as they head into the field of 68.

The Hoosier Hurryup: Penn State preview (10-9-15)0

Let’s talk Nittany Lions. Join your hosts Mike Petry and Michael Rayome for three quarters of an hour on:

  • Matt Hasselbeck’s flu game
  • Mixed emotions about the OSU game
  • Is IU too conservative offensively?
  • Is Penn State overrated? (Spoilers! Probably.)

Hear Michael fight through a Dayquil-induced haze as he tries to approach giving you a reasonable score prediction, and get Mike Petry’s thoughts on Indiana’s offensive line.

It’s a good one folks — don’t miss it.
