NarbTom Bracketology 2.0

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.

In this week's bracketology, Rev and I have ceased the semi-troll job and moved UAB out of a matchup with Iowa State. As terribl(y awesome?) as a rematch would have been, the college basketball landscape has undergone a pretty epic transformation since Bracketology 1.0, hence changes galore in version 2.0.

In addition to not-UAB, you'll find other gems like Texas Tech as a SINGLE DIGIT NCAA TOURNAMENT SEED (WHAT UNIVERSE IS THIS?), a possible VCU-Virginia second round matchup in Raleigh, our Riot Bros (fuck you guys just for like nine more hours) sitting on the 2-line, Hawaii getting as much home cooking as geographically possible as a 13-seed, a probable national title rematch in the second round, and much more.

Let's go to the bracket, and again, remember that this is a necessary exercise. Please take this information as gospel, because what could possibly change between now and Mar— [trampled by the Colorado buffalo]
