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.

We had a little shakeup at the top with South Carolina’s win over Alabama. Did Oregon take the top spot or did we follow the pundits and put Ohio State at #1?
The suspense is killing me, so I’ll get to it.
Alright, so I promised sweeping changes, but we didn’t get them. Weller’s internet is broken so we didn’t get a chance to discuss this. (That’s why you’ll find florida still in the poll and LSU only dropping five spots.
Also, I figured out how to not be an idiot and got the new format. Hope you enjoy it:
In what seems to be a recurring theme around here, I don’t have any time to post this. As most of you don’t know, Weller and I went to Denver this past weekend and caught the Rockies thrilling extra inning, walk off victory against the Giants on Saturday and then the Colts win over the Broncos on Sunday. Then we drove all the way back to St. Louis overnight so I could work in the morning. That leaves precious little time to post.
So I’ll just give you our early Blogpoll for Week 5 with no reasons to back it all up. That will come tomorrow night, I promise.
As always, disagree in the comments.
