Matrix Bracket - January 18

My own bracketology, independent of the matrix, starts up next week.  Over the summer, the NCAA tweaked the way it builds brackets. Those rules were summarized in an earlier blog post. So, in preparation, I created a bracket based on the January 18 matrix. Let me know if something is amiss.
