The teams below are displayed below on an S-curve, so they are ranked from left to right within each seeding line.  The italicized teams are ones predicted to win their conference tourney and gain an automatic bid to the dance.  For the conferences who currently have NCAA tourney teams, it is assumed that one of those teams will win their conference tourney.  If not, then a stolen bid would result, and the number of at-large bids would drop.

Also, just to clarify, my bracket projection is intended to project the NCAA Tournament field if it was chosen today.  Unlike some bracketologists, I am not trying to predict how each team will finish the season and then seed the teams based on that.  There is one slight exception to this rule, however, and that is that I have always chosen to award the projected automatic bid for each conference to my projected best team in that conference, and not the team who is currently leading the conference standings.   Given how unbalanced conference schedules are, it just seems like common sense to project that the best team in a conference will win the league championship, not the squad currently in first place.

The Chicago Bears found their new general manager on Saturday, his name is Phil Emery.

Emery was with the Bears for seven years from 1998 to 2004.

He then moved on to the Atlanta Falcons to serve as the director of college scouting.

He went to Kansas City in 2010, where he held the same position.

He interviewed twice with the Bears this month alongside New England Patriots director of pro personnel Jason Licht.

San Diego Chargers director of player personnel Jimmy Raye, New York Giants director of college scouting and former Bears director of player personnel Tim Ruskell all interviewed for the position as well.

The Bears fired Jerry Angelo after a tough season plagued with injuries and a clear lack of depth.

Emery has been able to do a good job at finding talent in his past jobs.

The score sheet will read – Stephane Pattyn (1) (Mario Lamoureux, Joe Gleason). Big time goal by a trio of character/role players for the Fighting Sioux hockey team. You couldn’t have scripted this game ending any better, the birthday boy Stephane “the General” Pattyn scores the game winner on his 21st birthday. I have to admit that this was my favorite play of the weekend. Third line utility players that will do anything for their team

It’s been four full seasons since “Josh” our favorite bat boy retired. Four!

I’m not sure we noticed who exactly replaced Josh, but we’re happy to report that retirement has been good to the former dean of the bat rack. Hell, he’s even opened a Twitter account where every single Tweet is dedicated to Adam Levine of Maroon 5. Josh doesn’t play around.

Anyway…

The Cardinals are looking for a new full time bat boy (or girl, we presume) and the qualifications don’t seem to be to incredibly stiff. So if you’re looking for work or know someone looking for work, maybe this is the break you’ve been searching for?

Sorry bout that – guess all the reports wuz rongggg. He’s apparently talking to the Rangers and – get this – the Astros?? He is no longer worth 15 mill a year, but he’s certainly worth more than minimum wage. It’s not that I’m exactly into Veteran Presence, but I’m going to be sicker than sick watching AA and AAA starters (besides Bud Norris) try to last 5 innings vs major league hitters.

I’m not sure that I do want him back if his back is so bad that he’s looking at minimum wage jobs.
