Bracketology Results 2021

Another Selection Sunday has come and gone. Hopefully, you are happy with where your team is seeded!  To see the complete bracket click HERE. 

Schedules including TV times and networks have not been released as of this writing, but should be listed over at CBS Sports once they go live.

As for me, I ended up with 67/68 teams.  I missed Wichita St, and had Louisville in their place. Not oo bad.  Seeding was a mixed bag this year.  Although I improved from a 346 to a 347 from last year, I definitely had more seeds missed by two lines.  However, I do believe I also had more exact matches as well. 

The Bracket Matrix page will be updated with final results HERE.

Championship Week heading into Selection Sunday is always a lot of fun, I hope you enjoyed it as well.  Can't wait to try to improve my score again next time!  Thanks so much for stopping by and I look forward to more bracket talk next year!

Enjoy the tournament!

Bracketology Results 2019!

Another Selection Sunday is in the books!

Hopefully you are happy with where your team ended up.

As for my results, I ended up with 67/68 teams.  In my final predictions I had TCU instead of Belmont (which I took off last night).

I seeded 63/68 teams correctly or within one seed line, which was one better than last year.  Missed VT, VCU, Iowa St, and Seton Hall by 2 lines.

My point total on the Bracket Matrix was a 346.  I scored 342 last year, so it is an improvement.  Will be interested to see what the winner scored this year.

The full bracket can be found HERE.

Still getting better at the seeding process.  Being my second year doing this, I have developed a real appreciation for those who consistently score at the top, because seeding is not easy!

How did you do?  Any bracket thoughts?

Also want to thank every person who visited, commented, or tweeted my blog.  I always have fun talking brackets with people.  Please remember me for next season, as I will be plugging away on brackets once again!  Hopefully I will be able to get more brackets out sooner, like I did last year.

Thanks again for checking out the blog!

Selection Sunday Bubble Metrics. 1:30pm

I have been re-examining bubble metrics for a number of teams.  So many different possibilities for the last several teams in the field.

Here is a chart of some metrics that stand out.  The greener the better.  The darker the red, the worse.
