2014 March Madness Field of 68 Projections for Dec. 9

Holiday tournaments and the ACC/Big Ten Challenge are over, so there's enough information to make my first NCAA tournament bracket projections of the 2013-14 season.

I like to break teams down into three categories:

1. Wallflowers are bubble teams. Everyone wants to get into the Big Dance, but not all of them have the guts to ask a girl out onto the dance floor.

2. An elite team that is safely in is "Dancing with a Hottie."

3. A school in the middle is "Dancing with Its Sister."

I'll begin with the first four at-large bid games:

(12a) Illinois vs. (12d) Oklahoma

(12b) BYU vs. (12c) Southern Miss

 

First Four Teams Out: Georgetown, UAB, Minnesota, California

The projections are presented in slideshow format, with each major conference receiving its own slide.

First up is the ACC.
