Bracketology update through 02/07/2019

This will be the last update until Monday. There aren’t really any games of significance tonight and I’ll be traveling to a basketball game on Sunday. It will be interesting to see the committees top 16 tomorrow. I would imagine they will have a Nevada as a top 4 seed whereas I don’t and possibly Gonzaga as a 1 over Michigan. Seeds 3-5 are kind of a mosh pit of teams right now so I’m most interested in their 9-16 teams more than anything.

A couple of new teams joined the bracket tonight because the other bubble teams keep doing what bubble teams do. Arkansas was the first team out and their next two games are very winnable. It’s likely they make an entrance next week at some point the way things are going. UNCG and VCU were also considered but there are certain metrics that prohibit me from including them in the fields as at large teams. I’ll write about the specifics in the upcoming days.
