1-3-1 Sports Field of 68 – November 28th

Welcome back to 1-3-1 Sports, where another season of analyzing college basketball’s finest has officially started (even earlier than last year!). This year, I intend to offer even more frequent insight into what is going on in the college hoops world. My goal is to update my bracketology projections daily for the entirety of the season, so that my audience can have the most up-to-date picture of the college basketball landscape. As always, I’m open to feedback and ideas from readers regarding potential topics, discussions, etc. Furthermore, if any individual team blogs are interested in working in conjunction on team-specific bracketology Q&A pieces, I’d love to contribute. Let the bracketology begin!
