This is prediction #3 for the field of 68. This time around I’ve included seedings. Schools with asterisks are play-in games and the ones in bold have already gotten an auto-bid into the tournament. I’ll put up one more prediction on Sunday before the teams are actually announced. Continue reading
We are actually less than a week out, but I figured I would go ahead and keep a similar title to my last post. There isn’t much to say that I didn’t say last time, only that there are some teams that have already earned a spot in the tournament by winning their own conference’s tourney. Those schools will be in bold to make things easy.
I am again going to simply list them in alphabetical order. I strongly considered listing them with their seeding this time, but that would have involved figuring out which schools would be in the four play-in games, which didn’t sound very appealing. Either way, I will again be providing my “last four in” at the bottom.

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.

I don’t have a whole lot of time to write about this, but Bryan emailed me a link about it so I figured I’d put it up real quick. The United States has new jerseys for it’s basketball team. Thanks to Nike’s awesomeness the jerseys look nearly the same but weigh significantly less. The jersey somehow has 13 inches less of material than before and the shorts weigh about half as much as the old ones. I don’t really know how much of a difference all this will make, but at the very least it sounds impressive; and hey, every little bit counts, right? Continue reading
Tonight in the Final of the 2010 NCAA Men’s Basketball National Tournament, the Butler Bulldogs take on the Duke Blue Devils. I’m going to go ahead and be honest and say that I don’t really care about this game. I’m cheering for the Bulldogs. It’d be a good story. They’re the David facing Goliath and they’re from Indianapolis (where the Championship is being played) and their campus is located about five miles from Lucas Oil Stadium (the venue in which the game is being held – also the home stadium for my Colts) and it’s really just a straight shot down North Capitol Avenue to get there.

I am currently in a car riding from Montana to Colorado so this is gonna be quick and to the point. I’m simply going to list the 65 teams in no particular order. I had planned on this being another full prediction with seedings and all but unfortunately the circumstances won’t really allow that to happen. Here’s the list of 65 teams that I think will make the NCAA tournament this year:

No, not Weapons of Mass Destruction. This obviously stands for Weller’s Musing and Divination. I have no idea if this will become a frequent type of post or not, but this one will be similar to the Bracketology that Joe Lunardi does for ESPN. And of course by similar, I mean that I will be doing exactly what he does: predicting the field of 65 and their seedings in each region. Don’t fool yourself though, Mr. Lunardi knows significantly more about college basketball than I do. In fact, I haven’t hardly followed college basketball at all this year but this seemed like a fun idea and thought I’d give it a shot. Feel free to tear it apart: Continue reading
