There seems to be a lot of hand-wringing about this being a “down year” for college hoops. If you define the season by whether or not there is a truly dominant team, I guess that’s a fair statement. However, if you define the season by sheer entertainment value, this one has been pretty damn good. The same kinds of upsets that are celebrated during the NCAA Tournament are somehow being used as an indictment of the 2012-13 season, but I have no complaints about such an unpredictable year. Well, maybe one.   It makes putting together these bracket projections increasingly difficult since it feels like virtually everyone lost last week. Throw in oddball profiles like the one Virginia is building, and this becomes a tall order each Monday night. Maybe now that we are less than five weeks from Selection Sunday things will start to sort themselves out. But with the way this season has gone, I doubt it. The projections below take into account all games played through Monday, February 11th.
