Welcome to the new season. Regular readers will know I don't like doing pre-season brackets. You gotta have some foundation to what you're forecasting. It's exactly why they play the games. But what's posted on the main site (link on right or pdf below) will be the starting point, representing a strengthening Pac-10, a weakening Big Ten and 9 teams from the Big East.
Next update for the bracket is in December while the matrix will be updated as needed/when I have time.
