First Bracket 1/4

Alright so here is the first bracket, just the true rankings currently the s-curve will occur later closer to March, that I have come up with. I know that they are a plethora of teams that might not be in that should be or vice versa, but it is still early and there is time to correct those mistakes. at the time that I started The Bracket I took the team in the lead of each conference as the automatic bid. Including those that received an auto bid I looked at 108 teams to complete my 68 team bracket.

                                                              Bracket 1/4
1 DUKE MICHIGAN ARIZONA Louisville
2 Indiana KANSAS Syracuse GONZAGA
3 Minnesota Ohio St Illinois Florida
4 CREIGHTON Butler New Mexico MISSOURI
5 Michigan St CINCINNATI UNLV North Carolina St

This is it for now, there are a lot of teams but I do expect that to slim down as conference play starts and teams start to show there true colors. My goal is to update this weekly every Monday, but we’ll see how much school work I’ll have.

My first time

Hi guys I’m pretty excited to start blogging about college Basketball. I haven’t really done anything like this before so it is going to be interesting as I learn along the way. A little bit about why I’m doing this. I was a member of the inaugural Super10 committee which was put on by the NCAA and Turner Studios where ten of us were gathered for a weekend to go through a mock selection of picking the 2012 tournament bracket. After realizing how difficult it can be I decided that since Basketball has been a huge part of my past and will hopefully be a big part of my future I am trying to fly solo this year to create a bracket of my own. Will see how it goes!!
