Ranking The Bracketologists

Our friends over at The Bracket Matrix do a great job of keeping track of the weekly projections of over 50 bracketologists. They've recently added a new feature, called Ranking The Bracketologists, which ranks the top bracketology sites based on how successful their projections have been over the last three years.

The Matrix uses a scoring system - developed by our buddy Paymon at PHSports - to rank each of the bracketologists based on teams correctly selected, teams seeded exactly, and teams seeded within one seed line. After crunching all of the numbers from the past three years, The Matrix ranks Bracketology 101 as the most accurate bracketology site on the web. Based on the Paymon scoring system, we had the most accurate bracket overall in 2006 and 2008, and the second most accurate in 2007. Our 2008 bracket earned a score of 332, the second highest Paymon score ever.

In case you were wondering, Joe Lunardi ranks 12th on the Rankings The Bracketologists list (ouch), and in each of the last two years, Lunardi's bracket has been below average accuracy-wise when compared to the rest of the bracketology sites out there.

Lunardis a genius, he has VT and Miami in over MD. Only an expert with insider information could make such a bold prediction with no factual footing to stand on!!
