College basketball bracketology: NCAA.com releases projected March Madness bracket

It is college basketball talking season, when each program has a legitimate shot at its conference’s title and at least one reason for optimism for making the NCAA Tournament. With well over a month until the actual season tips off, it’s virtually impossible to project anything with certainty — but speculation is always fun.

NCAA.com’s Andy Katz is one of several national pundits that are already making predictions for 2022’s NCAA Tournament field. Though it is far from a sure things, Katz’s predictions do give insight into how this upcoming season could play out.

Teams that occupy the No. 1 and 2 seeds have obviously high expectations, and there tends to be good reason for that — whether it’s a Blue Blood welcoming in its next wave of talented “one and dones” or a program, like Gonzaga or Baylor, that spend a few years building up a roster to perfectly fit a coach’s vision. Teams from the 3-10 seeds are good, but may be missing a few pieces, while spots lower than that tend to be occupied by the Mid Majors.
