I’ve gotten asked a few times why we do Bracketology. After all, it’s a pretty stupid idea isn’t it, getting people’s hopes up with so many games left to play and it won’t wind up that way, etc., etc.
Well, here’s why we do it. It’s not about saying we’re right, we got the right bracket (though it is nice to be able to say that once in awhile), or that we nailed it on the head. It is about helping the fan to understand why the teams are chosen the way they are and why the teams end up where they are.
So while you read a bracketology every week, there may be different things that make you say, huh? It’s because we’re trying to make you think that there could be a myriad of possibilities out there in terms of thinking how to place teams and perhaps, just perhaps, this is the way that they will think this year.
I am not saying that the way we do it is the exact way the committee does it, but it is possibly one way that the committee may do it.
That’s the bottom line.
So now, let’s figure out who is in, who is out, let’s have some fun and enjoy the games.
