College Basketball Roundup: New Bracketology Rating Spreadsheet and More Games to Watch!


A topsy-turvy Saturday saw seven top 10 teams lose, including all of the top 6 (Gonzaga, Arizona, Auburn, Purdue, Kansas and Kentucky). How will this shake up the seed lines? What are some upcoming games to watch? Torey Jones has you covered. Meanwhile, Eric Brandt gives his prospect notes on a couple of players!

  • BRACKETOLOGY (by Torey Jones)

Overview: In our first article, I gave a detailed explanation of what Bracketology is, so if you haven’t read that, click here. My Bracketology is featured on Bracket Matrix, a website that compiles many different bracketologists from across the web and compiles their rankings into one easy to read format. At the end of the season, bracketologists are ranked based on the accuracy of their predictions.

What’s New: In the latest edition, I publish my rating system (without revealing the entire formula). This includes ratings for all 358 D1 Men’s Basketball teams! Instead of publishing a seed line in this article and wasting space, my spreadsheet will have all the seedings included plus additional information! To view my Bracketology spreadsheet, click here!
