Bracketology Update 3/6/18

Today starts the day with at least a daily update. We are in the thick of things and I believe that we are in for a great Championship Week and will be interesting how it all plays out. In action today, the ACC is where we saw the bubble action. Notre Dame putting all of their hopes in Bonzie Colson being back almost lost to Pittsburgh. Yes, the 0-18 Panthers almost made the Irish dreams fall short. I believe they may need 2 more victories in the tournament, but they at least need one more. So if they don’t be Virginia Tech, Colson will get to play at the Joyce Center at least one more time. The Orange did what they had to and went out to beat Wake Forest. I do not know if i necessarily agree with ESPN’s BPI prediction of a 98% percent chance to make the tournament, but I think depending on how other games roll out this week, the Orange have a decent shot. This resume is much better than last years and they have some road wins which they were lacking at this time last year. Go out and beat UNC and they should be in. If the can make it to the ACC semifinals I believe that achieves lock status. So be sure to visit http://www.bracketmatrix.com, to see how I rank up with others and to see where your team lands on average.
