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.
