Bracketology 2015 – February 6, 2015

Unfortunately, the website I have used for the last few years to put my bracket on to make it easier to view has been taken down for whatever reason. This means that from this point forward I will have to print my brackets here instead  of linking to a bracket. Hopefully it still comes out clear and is easy to read and understand. I’m sorry for this inconvenience. As soon as I find another way to get my bracketology into a bracket format, I will do so. Without further ado, here is my latest bracket:
