Super Sunday Bracketology-2/6/11

Here is the next version of my NCAA bracketology. The bracket takes into account all games played through Saturday.

No changes on the #1 seeds, but there are a couple of changes on the last few teams in. Namely, a couple of teams (UAB and Butler) are knocked out of the bracket; for Butler this is partially due to their own struggles, but also due to "Bid Stealers". Bid Stealers are teams that are leading their conference and are therefore in the bracket as the auto bid but would not make the field as an At-Large. The two new bid stealers in this bracket are Alabama and UTEP. There are always a couple of these bid stealers come conference tournament time that turn a 1-bid league into a 2-bid league or get an extra team out of a power conference that they would not have otherwise gotten.

Once again, this bracket is only a snapshot if today was Selection Sunday (which we're only 5 weeks away from). The winner of the West Region will play the winner of the East Region in the Final Four, the winner of the Southwest Region will play the winner of the Southeast region. Automatic bids are in CAPS.
