The Road to Bracketville – Predicting March Madness 2013


This is our first run at keeping up with the bracket in-house.  A few years ago we outsourced it and have also just linked to other brackets.

We have slaved away over this the last few days; there were even changes on Tuesday night with Florida moving up to take Michigan’s spot at a #1 seed.

We will lay it out in bracket form soon, but for now here is how we see the seeds shaping up for the March to Madness, or as we like to call it, the Road to Bracketville.

  1. We absolutely forgot Oklahoma State – most likely was moving them between seeds and they got lost in the shuffle. Will be fixed in the post today updating it.

    Good catch, thanks.

  2. Thanks for leaving out VCU – they only have a couple good wins and have gotten fat on the bottom of the A-10. They could easily close out the year 1-4 with losses at St. Louis, to Butler, @ Xavier and @Temple. And don’t be shocked if Richmond beats them for the second time this season either. They have clinched nothing yet.
