The Bracket Big Board takes into consideration past returns, current performance and expected future gains in determining who should be included among the field of 65 (31 automatic and 34 at-large bids). Essentially, the Bracket Big Board is a cheat sheet designed for amateur bracketologists if they were filling out a Tourney Pick ‘Em '10 (SIGN UP NOW!!!) entry today. The Bracket Big Board is updated every Monday until the dance card is officially unveiled March 14.
With joyful conference tourney victors strutting their way into the Big Dance, the Triple-B enters warp speed mode. No Oscar dismayed Na'vi need apply. However, laser-toting Wookiees are always welcome. (Insert yowl)
