Bracketology: Updated Bracket And S-Curve For March 1, 2011

In my first bracketology post for March over at SB Nation, I highlight several changes near the top of the field, including BYU's rise to the top line, and the chaos that continues at the bottom of the NCAA bracket.

That post will be the first of many for me over at the mothership over the next 13 or so days, which means there will be some changes here at Blogging the Bracket. This blog is going to focus more on conference tournaments and TV schedules until Selection Sunday, with the potential for a few bracketology-related posts in that time. Meanwhile, I'll have more focused (and frequent) Bubble Watch posts over at SB Nation, along with more frequent bracket updates. For instance, I'll have a new Last Four In/First Four out over there tomorrow and a full bracket update on Friday.

I still plan on publishing S-curve updates here with bracket updates, and there's one for today after the jump.

Here's Monday's S-curve for reference. For a pair of different views of today's edition, check out the full bracket and seed list.
