ACC

Sideline Intel Bracketology: Final Edition

This is it. Happy Selection Sunday!

I’ve got nothing left to say. Here are my final brackets, and now it’s up to the committee. Enjoy:

Note: all-caps denote a conference champion.

And another note… The group of teams between seed Nos. 7-10 was an absolute muddled mess of conference affiliation issues. If you have an issue with a team’s seeding in that range, your answer probably has something to do with that. The committee will often make procedural movements between seed lines to avoid early matchups of teams of the same conference. The actual bubble picture can be seen below the bracket.
