Bracketology, February 17

Ah yes, it's time once again for one of my favorite topics: bracketology.  Time for people to discuss world-changing topics such as who's going to win it all, potential 12-5 upsets, and who will be this season's George Mason.  We're a month away from the most unproductive time of year for the corporate world ("Gee, you've been looking at that same spreadsheet for the last 4 hours, what's so important about it?  And why does it say 'Click anywhere on this screen to return to'").  We're also a month away from the greatest tv show of the year, Selection Sunday, and 6 weeks from another rendition of "One Shining Moment" by Luther Vandross.  Most importantly, we're a month away from the best post-season tournament in sports, period.

These picks will inevitably change completely over the next 4 weeks, but this will at least get the conversation started.  Once again, these picks will be posted on the Bracket Matrix for the rest of the season.  Check back every 2-3 days for updated picks.  MU starts out as a 5-seed.  If they win 4 of their last 6 Big East games they should move up to a 4-seed.  Enjoy.
