Pre-season Bracket

I don't like doing pre-season brackets. How do you know where anyone will end up when zero games have been played? But I will admit that the best columns writers write is when they look back and see how wrong they were. So clicking on the main page will take you to my starting point for the year. UNC, UConn, UCLA, and Louisville occupy the top spots while Oklahoma State, UAB and New Mexico are on the bubble.

The first matrix will be published Monday night and will be refreshed every Monday night until January when I'll move to a daily schedule. Pre-season brackets will be valid in the matrix until December 1, which coincides with my next bracket release.
