This section is where you will be able to view the OneManSelectionCommittee’s Bracketology and all of the continuous bracket projections for the 2017 NCAA Tournament.

As expected, this bracket will be heavily updated over the course of the next few days and weeks to better reflect the realistic likelihood of this year’s tournament as chosen by the NCAA Selection Committee.

To kick off this installment of Bracketology will be the opening round games which will be held in Dayton, Ohio.

At the conclusion of the four opening round games, we will then enter into the full field of the 2017 NCAA Tournament.
