Bracket Projection - 12/17/2013

With the non-conference season nearing an end, here is my first bracket projection of the year.  I did well last year finishing with the 9th most accurate bracket out of the 120 different brackets tracked by the bracket matrix.  That gives me one of the top 10 most accurate brackets in 2 of the last 3 year.  Hopefully I can build on that momentum this coming year.
