1-3-1 Sports Field of 68 – January 26th

Welcome back to 1-3-1 Sports! My goal is to update my bracketology projections daily for the entirety of the season, so that my audience can have the most accurate, 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. Finally, operation and maintenance of this site takes time and money. So, if you are willing, please make a small donation towards keeping the site up and running by clicking on the donation button on the sidebar. Let the fun begin!

    I don’t think South Carolina would be in Greenville as a 7 seed. I can’t see the committee sending them in-state as it would be a defacto home game. Also, cannot see Creighton coming to Greenville either – the other team right now would be Virginia.
