Bracketology: Updated S-Curve For February 28, 2011

After another action and upset-packed weekend, my Monday S-curve features a sprinkling of changes at the top, including a new top seed, the BYU Cougars. Plus, a pair of at-larges have flipped, with Boston College and Minnesota falling out, and Baylor and Michigan moving in. Plus, Alabama's loss at Mississippi not only prevented their entry as the new SEC leader, but also damaged their shaky at-large chances further.

Here's a link to my Thursday S-curve and Friday Bubble Watch at SB Nation for reference. Any seed changes from yesterday are in parentheses.
