Amateur Bracketology Revisited: Slightly More Pleasing To The Eye Edition

As promised, here is my latest series of Photoshop masterpieces. The brackets are updated as of the conclusion of the Texas-Arlington and North Carolina wins, though you won’t actually see any changes since I had projected these outcomes prior to creating last night’s projections.

Just give the brackets a click for a better look. We’ll try to get back prior to the Selection Show if anything unexpected (like, say, Georgia winning) happens.

Amateur Bracketology Revisited: Quick and Dirty Sleep Deprived Edition

I couldn’t sleep, so I figured that instead of counting sheep, I could take another crack at what the bracket is going to end up looking like before its release on Sunday.

I was looking for a graphical version that I could just fill in the names and upload, but it looks like it might be a little more complicated than that. So, while I might bust out Photoshop tomorrow in a vain attempt to make my bracket look prettier (it may be the no sleep talking, but I’ll probably update my bracket throughout the afternoon if need be), right now it’s going to be all text, all the time.
