TCR Bracketology 2015: Way too early...but why not!?

New, 8 comments

It's never too early!

TCR Labs has been hard at work to bring you the earliest predictions for the 2015 NCAA Tournament Brackets.  Long hours of calculating and predicting overall records, strength of schedule, quality wins, number of beers consumed on the sideline (Crean...), have resulted in a highly scientific and fairly accurate (at least WE think so) preview of what the NCAA Tournament will look like.

So, without further ado...let's take a look!

4) Louisville Cardinals vs 13) Murray State Racers

6) Southern Methodist University (SMU) vs 11) Ole Miss Rebels

3) North Carolina Tar Heels vs 14) Georgia State

As for the Illini, winning the next four games will be crucial for boosting our overall record.  If we can win 20 games this season, there's a good chance we'll be dancing in March.
