Noah Holley Bracketology: January 11, 2017

Welcome to my first bracketology of the year!  How this is going to work is pretty simple, even though knowing me I’m probably going to make it complicated: Despite today being a Wednesday, my updated projections will be out by 3 PM every Monday the rest of the season.  Also, as the season goes on, I’ll add commentary at the beginning, such as a bubble watch, resume breakdowns, etc.  That’s pretty much it.  Anyway, I hope you enjoy.  If you have any questions feel free to tweet at me @NoahSports1.
