We are only a few weeks into the 2012-2013 college basketball season but since I am a massive nerd, have already updated my preseason NCAA Tournament Bracketology.  For the record, I have the Duke Blue Devils as the top overall seed after picking up wins over Louisville, Minnesota, and VCU at the Battle 4 Atlantis to add to their victory against Kentucky earlier this season.
