Buckeye’s November 27th Bracket

Looked at things a little bit more in depth and included more factors. I also added in a number of “also considered” teams that show you who is “play their way in” distance away from the field. This number will start large and slowly shrink in size as the year goes on. I’ll keep tinkering with the variables I use as we get further into the season until I find a combination I like.

It’s going to be a great year. I just have that feeling.
