2014 recap

2014 PROJECTION RESULTS:
Number of teams correctly placed in field: 67 of 68
Number of teams correctly seeded: 42
Number of teams seeded at least within 1 seed line: 61
2014 rank: T-6th out of 121 brackets in the Bracket Matrix
(For reference, Joe Lunardi of ESPN ranked T-31st and Jerry Palm of CBS ranked T-87th.)
I am currently ranked 16th out of 76 “Bracket Veterans” in the Bracketologist Rankings at the Bracket Project.
(For reference, Joe Lunardi of ESPN is ranked 44th and Jerry Palm of CBS is ranked 52nd. )

2014 RECAP:
One other thing I would like to note as it pertains to the accuracy of my bracket projection was that I essentially projected 10 of the 32 round of 64 matchups. These were all exactly projected into their region in the bracket
1. Arizona vs Weber State
2. Wichita State vs Cal Poly/Texas Southern
3. Kansas vs Eastern Kentucky
4. Wisconsin vs American
5. Villanova vs Milwaukee
6. Oklahoma vs North Dakota State
There were two matchups that I projected correctly but placed into other regions:
7. Texas vs Arizona State (I had in East, actually in Midwest)
8. Duke vs Mercer (I had in West, actually in Midwest)
There was an 8/9 matchup that I correctly placed in the West region but had the seeds reversed:
9. Oklahoma State vs Gonzaga
I had this matchup correctly placed in the South region. Albany had to win their play in game to make this matchup happen but I will give myself credit for it:
10. Florida vs Albany
Joe Lunardi correctly predicted 5 matchups and Jerry Palm correctly predicted 3.

Reminder: my full bracketology archive is available at http://jameshintz.zxq.net

It is possible that I will do a 2015 preseason projection at some point later this spring or summer.
