Bracketology for Jan. 20: Projecting the March Madness Field
Andy Manis/Associated Press

Ranked teams suffered 15 losses last week, leading to a major shakeup in this week's projections.

As always, I am not predicting how teams will finish the season. However, I am bracketing them based on what they have done up to this point. 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. A school in the middle is "dancing with its sister."
  3. An elite team that is safely in is "dancing with a hottie."

Last four in: Texas, Tennessee, Southern Miss, Stanford

First nine out: Georgetown, VCU, Saint Mary's, Arkansas, Missouri, La Salle, SMU, Illinois, Arizona State

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