Bracketology 12/10/19

What a Feast Week we just encountered. We learned so much about a lot of teams. Michigan State is going to struggle to find a shooter, Kansas may be the best team in the country, and no one knows it yet. Ohio State didn’t play in a tournament, yet they’re a 1 seed. Welcome Dayton, Butler and San Diego State. Michigan is leaps and bounds ahead of schedule. Gonzaga is still really good because the Wolverines are really good. Louisville is even better because they brought Michigan down to Earth. And what in the world are we going to do about Kentucky, Florida and North Carolina?

Two other teams I didn’t welcome get a special recognition. DePaul and Penn State. Never in my lifetime did I ever think I would include the Blue Demons and Nittany Lions into a Bracketology, but here we are. We’ve also reached week one of college finals week. AKA the big lull in college hoops. There will still be a few nice games here and there so we don’t totally lose everyone, but it’s a rough stretch ahead.

Perfect time to put out a Bracketology. Everyone else is doing so, which you can find on the Bracket Matrix.
