College Basketball Bracketology: 2012-13 Preseason Bracketology

The college basketball season has returned. Practice is underway, and the anticipation for the start of games is nearly unbearable.

But even though we are still a few weeks away from the first official games of the season, it is never too early to take a look at how the field of 68 will be shaping up by the time March rolls around.

A conference in parentheses next to a team indicates a team that I have picked to win its conference's automatic bid.

With the 68-team format, there will be four play-in games. There will be two play-in games for the bottom four at-large teams and two play-in games for the bottom four conference tournament winners who earn automatic bids.

In the bracket, the winner of the Midwest Region plays the winner of the West Region, and the winner of the East Region plays the winner of the South Region.

The Midwest Region and the West Region hold the overall No. 1 and No. 4 seeds, respectively. The East Region and South Region hold the overall No. 2 and No. 3 seeds, respectively.
