Please note: this bracket projection is completely created by a computer, and sometimes it does computer things! Recreating the nuance that a selection committee has is not an easy task, and you may find it walking away from where the human bracketologists are coalescing. Like most algorithms, it should get better as the season progresses, so if you don’t like how it looks in December, be patient!
