Selection Sunday is later today and the conference tourneys are all but finished! Follow us on Twitter for up to date Bracketology up until the big moment.

I’m about eight years deep in the Bracketology game, five years as member of the Bracket Matrix, and it’s full steam ahead.

Here’s how I see March Madness shaking out, as of Selection Sunday, March 17th at 6am.
