Bracket Projection: 12/31

Bracket season has returned! I won't be doing too much blogging this year, but you'll still get a bracket every week. Also I'll be posting the weekly bracket on my alter ego's twitter account along with any specific thoughts I have that week. But the good news is I have a new format this year, which presents the brackets as an actual bracket, which is fun, and slightly more informative than the old block format, where it was harder to tell what the matchups were. I've also adjusted the formula to reflect the new NET rankings replacing the RPI, but from the outside things should seem pretty much the same. Enjoy!
