Bracketology 2.0: 2/24/19

Photo Credit: Tarheelblog.com

The second version of my Bracketology is here! I projected all 68 teams to make the tournament, seeded them, and also gave a resume overview of them all. I also gave an updated bubble outlook at the end. I’ll be updating this every few days until Selection Sunday. You can also catch me on BracketMatrix.com, which I have been added to recently. If you have any questions, feel free to tweet at me @Sports_Burd. That being said, here we go!
