Projecting the field of 68
I am so excited about the start of the new season. College basketball is back, baby!
Everywhere I go, people ask me about their teams and their chances to make it to the big dance.
While sitting at the Broken Egg here in Lakewood Ranch, Florida, I had the opportunity to scribble down a list. Going conference by conference, using the VBDI (Vitale Bald Dome Index), I played the role of the Selection Committee.
My friends, those working to give us our field on Selection Sunday have a tough time. I had an easier time because this is just a projection. I am sure some people will argue over my picks, but that is part of the fun of sports. There are opinions and great debate.
The teams will determine the field based on their play on the court.
Here it is, my predicted field of 68. Keep a copy of it and let em know what you think come March Madness!
