RSN Bracketology: First In-Season Bracket Update V.1 (12/18)

This bracket is a hybrid or mixture of what the field will look like if it was compiled at this moment as well as a bit of projection towards the rest of the season. With this, however, it is more on the side of what the field would look like today.

    Can you explain why you had Tennessee “in the hunt” preseason and have completely omitted them off your newest bracket with losses to only Nova and UNC?


    1. Jimmy, I apologize as this was a mistake in the first bracket. Tennessee was a 7 seed in our preliminary field for this update but was not carried over to the bracket – our mistake. Check out our update posted today, Tennessee comes in at 24th overall on the 6 line. Thanks for pointing this mistake out and thanks for reading!
