As inexact a science as it has been shown to be, Bracketology, and messing with predicting both the field and winners of the NCAA tournament has been a mass favorite for decades now.

I grew up printing out brackets on selection Sunday, hurriedly filling out several of them, and competing with my Dad and little brother every year. I even played basketball outside and made my own brackets on microsoft excel, strange as it sounds. I have always been a basketball nut.

 

However, with how crazy College hoops are and always will be, picking them has eternally been a unmitigated disaster. It's usually for fun, so I don't normally mind. But this year I decided I need to study up a bit and at least create somewhat of a blurb for each possible tourney team so I can compare teams and match ups, and have a better shot of knowing wtf I'm doing when picking. Of course, that doesn't matter, it will not end up as I think it will anyway, but how's that stopping me from going crazy and researching the whole field (plus any bubble teams)? :lol:

 

Anyway, I thought I'd share what I've got so far; I've still got over a week left til I finish, but I am happy with how it was looking and I hope when it's done it can help some of you basketball nuts too. ;) I'm an extreme visual person, so displaying info in an attractive manner helps me. I'm sure there are much better ways than excel, but for a poor man who grew up on excel, it's what I've got. :lol: enjoy!

      ... has released his bracket prediction for a tournament that is still 10-months away.
       
      To my shock and dismay, Nebraska was not included, and didn't make the first 8 NIT participants.
       
      I just wanted to save this for posterity's sake... because mark my words, Joe Lunardi... we might make it onto the bubble this year when nobody expects it. I mean maybe. Just you watch Mr. Lunardi, it's highly possible that we end up in that first 8 out section.. *or higher*. Crazier things have happened.
       
      And when they do (mayhaps), I'll be here, Joseph, to make sure your poor faith in Nebrasketball is exposed (@OldTakesExposed), for everyone to point and laugh. Not likely, but we'll see.
       
      Perchance.
       
       
       
      Conceivably.

      Not that it means all that much in the preseason, but Jerry Palm released his (very early) bracketology today.  NU comes in as a #5 seed - playing in Omaha.
