It begins again…

First one of the year! And just think, in 7 weeks, we’ll have the real bracket.

As our starting point, I ranked every team under consideration for an at-large bid.

Long live 7-seed FAU, 9-seed Charleston, and in the tournament Northwestern!

Feel free to ask any questions and follow me on Twitter for more college basketball updates. I post the Bracketology there as well.



“Significant Figures” Coming on August 15!

I’m thrilled to announce that my next book, “Significant Figures: Statistical Stories Throughout NFL History,” will come out on August 15th!

This has been a very fulfilling project and I can’t wait to share more as we get closer to release! The best place for updates will be my Twitter account, @ConnorGroel.

Thanks to all who continue to support my work!
