It's Friday of championship week and we still haven't had any changes to the actual field of 68. Teams have moved up or down a bit on the seed list, but no one has moved in or out of the bracket yet. That could change today as we finally hit a series of big bubble games in multiple conferences. Those sitting in the clubhouse and waiting will have to hold their breath through another couple days of games and then see where the dust settles.
