Pre Season College Basketball Bracketology

New, comment

even before the shoe laces have been tied for the first slate of games this season, i have mapped out the field of 68 with the MWC having it's biggest year in recent memory.

Kentucky, Indiana, Louisville, and Ohio State seem to be the Final Four favorites for 2013

On the eve of the college basketball season teams prepare with one goal on mind: get to Atlanta for the 2013 Final Four. Even though games haven't even started yet I have mapped out the field of 68. The Mountain West plays a big role in 2012-13 as I see them getting an outstanding 5 teams into the big dance.
