Projected NIT Bracket – 2/26/2012

This is the latest projected NIT bracket I have through Sunday’s results.

At they’re capitalizing on it by putting out the Runway to the Fashion 4 bracket. It’s even got a blog where Virginia Tech’s Seth Greenberg can be found spouting some insider knowledge. (At least his team made this bracket!)
