Noah Holley Bracketology

Welcome to my first 2016-17 bracketology!

Believe it or not, the college basketball season is only two and a half months away.  We need to get into the spirit, people.  We need to get hyped.  September is in two days; that’s a wintery-enough sounding month for me to be at least somewhat okay with the lack of college basketball.

But no matter what month it is, bracketologists need to bracketologize.  I don’t care if it’s August or Selection Sunday.  It just has to happen for us.  I think I’ve waited too long to post this, guys.  Send help quick…..

But yeah, here is the first of my two offseason bracket updates.  I’ll see you guys soon!
