Bracketology 2/18/15

1) Remember that the seed list snakes, but the bubble list does not. I'll change this soon but I'm a little rushed today.

2) Placement of teams who have autobids on the bubble chart indicates where they would be without their autobid.

3) I got rid of the tables. They were too hard to read.
