2020 College Basketball Bracketology

Still 68, for now.

We seek to answer two questions in our 2020 college basketball bracketology: who will make the 2020 NCAA Tournament, and what will be their seeds?

The time is upon us once again to think about the field of 68 in this year’s annual madness from the third month of the Gregorian calendar. As it has been in past seasons, 32 automatic bids go out to the champions of each Division I conference, while the other 36 bids are at-larges. As of 2020, the NCAA Selection Committee still utilizes the NET rankings to help quantify a team’s performance. Like last year, wins and losses are categorized into four “quadrants,” with Quadrant 1 wins being much more valuable than Quadrant 4’s. However, Quadrant 4 losses are much more damaging than Quadrant 1’s.

If for whatever reason you want to do so, you can see our 2019 bracketology page.

Editor’s Note: January 5, 2020
The intent of this page is to offer two things: the S-curve ranking the entries from 1 to 68, and then the theoretical bracket as seen by us. For now, since we are still two months away, it would be a waste of time to do anything more than the S-curve. We will begin doing full bracketologies by late January or early February.
