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, so that my audience can have the most accurate, up-to-date picture of the college basketball landscape. As always, I’m open to interviews, 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!
