1-3-1 Sports Field of 68 – January 30th

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 websites are interested in working in conjunction on team-specific bracketology Q&A pieces, I’d love to contribute. Let the fun begin!

    Here’s a fun tangent into the land of speculation. What do you think of LSU?

    Addendum: I am also intrigued by your omission of UNC-Greensboro from the Unfortunate Eight (first four out, next four out).
