Well, it’s been about nine months since I’ve posted anything on this lovely blog, though I have engaged in some discussion via the comments section of one of my old posts since then. Either way, with Selection Sunday just under two weeks away, I thought I would go ahead and put up my initial prediction for the Field of 68.
I try to do at least one of these every year, even if it’s a last-minute one that I put up within an hour or so before the Selection Committee actually announces the teams. This year, however, I’m going to try to put up three or four in these two weeks leading up to Selection Sunday. The first one is obviously this one, the last one will be right before they’re actually announced, and then there will hopefully be one or two others somewhere in between, and I will of course be revisiting my predictions after the field is actually announced to see how I did.
For this first prediction, I’m going to list them in alphabetical order. Next week I might start actually seeding them, but at the very least I will provide seeding predictions with my last one.
Check out the list after the jump:
|Florida Gulf Coast|
|Long Beach St|
|San Diego State|
|South Dakota St|
|Stephen F. Austin|
My last four in are Kentucky, Iowa State, Notre Dame and Tennessee. I’m also going to give you a list of what I would consider the top ten bubble teams that I didn’t actually have making it in my prediction: St. Mary’s, Umass, Oregon, Villanova, Virginia, Baylor, Alabama, Wyoming, St. John’s, and Stanford.
