Quasi Bracketology

We call this segment Quasi-Bracketology because we’re not predicting the field: we’re merely putting it together the way we’d prefer. This time, we’ve got a changing 2013 NCAA Tournament field of 68, and the bottom of it will continue to change between here and Selection Sunday, which is only a few weeks from now.

And now, if you dare, PUP’s field of 68. This article features our S-curve, or in English, the teams in the field ranked from 1 to 68. At the very bottom, we’ll also reveal the teams that just missed the cut.
