Weird Science: Bracketology Version 1.0

Thanks to the nice holiday which left us with nothing to do all day, we decided to see if we could project the brackets better than the experts.  We will try and keep it updated every week along with our WCC power rankings, roundups, etc..

We have assembled what we think are the 65 best teams in the nation at this point in time.  Sadly for Gonzaga fans, two bubble teams which beat Gonzaga did not make our list.  Arizona and Utah, at this point, are on the outside looking in.  Portland State also does not project into the field at this point.  Obviously, plenty of things can change between now and March so this is, by no means, final. 

We know we've got plenty of lurkers so let us know what you think, and argue if you must!

The play-in game will feature Hampton v. Alabama St.
