NarbTom Bracketology 1.0

New, 24 comments

Forget everything you thought you knew about predicting the NCAA Tournament bracket. RevDizz and austinnarber, as with most things in life, are all you really need.

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

Ladies and gentlemen, Cavaliers, Tar Heels, Musketeers and Cyclones, there is one month until Selection Sunday.

As such, RevDizz and I are here to bring you weekly bracketology reports leading up to the big day. The college basketball landscape is fluid and ever-changing, so as March approaches we'll be sure to update our bracket more often as teams rise, fall, disappear and reappear in the field of 68 down the stretch.

What we give you here is each matchup as we see it (not necessarily as the committee might see it on Selection Sunday), filtered into their appropriate regions and divided into their appropriate locations (THERE ARE SO MANY RULES, WE HATE RULES). We encourage you to definitely use the comments section to play out the bracket and see what kind of upsets, cinderella stories and Final Fours you wind up with, and of course fight with each other about it.

Please remember that this is absolutely a necessary exercise, and you won't find many websites or publications who do this kind of thing. We are unique in this way.

Okay, onto the bracket:
