RSN Bracketology Final Bracket Projection (3/11)

Here we are, the final bracket. I remain cautiously optimistic about the RSN Projection and feel that it should mirror the committee’s field rather well. A sincere thank you to all of the followers and viewers of the site this year. We made steady growth this year in terms of popularity and website views as we continue moving towards our goal of being a powerhouse bracketology website. Be sure to come back next year for more bracketology at RSN. For now, enjoy the final projection of the field of 68. Good Luck!
