Note:  Some may notice that certain teams in my projections are now projected quite differently than my last few projections.  I have a system that I've set in place for determining my projections.  I believe it to be a fairly accurate system in coming up with bracket projections and it's simplicity has allowed me to come out w/ bracket projections many times per week with relative ease.  As we're now only a few days away from Selection Sunday I've decided to modify this system slightly (which greatly increases the time and effort for required for me) to come up with what I believe will be an even more accurate projection.

Bracket Projections - 1/11/2012

Here are my projections for games played through 1/10/2012.  With conference play starting to get into full swing, I am now projecting each of the current conference leaders to get the auto-bid for their conference (even if I don't necessarily think they will end up there).  As a result teams like Colorado who's currently leading the Pac-12 is being projected to make the tournament here although they have pretty much no shot at getting an at-large bid.  This sort of thing helps account for the fact that there's always a few "bid thieves" come March and thus makes for a more accurate projection of where the line is between those that are in the tournament and those that are out.

1 Seeds:  SYRACUSE, Ohio State, Kentucky, NORTH CAROLINA
