Bracket 2/3

College football, over! Congrats Clemson!

NFL, over! Congrats to New England!

Next up… March Madness!!!!!

We are a little over a month away from Selection Sunday and it seems that no one really wants to separate themselves from the field. It looks as if teams are struggling to gather the wins they need while plenty are making a push to be in the talk for one of the last spots.

In this bracket conference automatic bids were decided by looking at the current conference standings. If teams were within .5 games then the higher KenPom ranked team was given the nod to be selected.

Keep an eye out as plenty of teams are in the mix with the new NET rankings. From what I have noticed thus far it looks to be easier for a mid-major to earn an at large bid but looks to be difficult for the mid-majors to solidify a higher seed.
