BRACKETOGRAPHY 2001

I projected 64/65 teams correctly, with Georgia slipping IN and Alabama OUT. Of those 64 teams, I projected 51 within one line of their seed. 43 of those 51 were projected to their EXACT seed. Considering the fact that Joe Lunardi (of ESPN.com) boasts that his best ever projection was 55 teams within one line, for a first try, 51 is quite a respectable number. AND I projected fully 12 more teams than did Joe to their exact seed this year.
