Are there any perfect brackets left in 2022? Tracking the best March Madness remaining

+

It has become an annual ritual where college basketball fans submit their brackets thinking this is the year that their bracket will be perfect. That hope usually goes away pretty early. Picking a perfect bracket is close to impossible. Even picking a perfect first round is nearly impossible. The odds of a perfect bracket is more than 1-in-9 quintillion (based on a coin flip).

College basketball: CBS Sports releases 2023 NCAA Tournament bracket prediction

+

The NCAA Tournament is one of the greatest championship events in all of sports, thanks to the upset-minded nature of the event, and how much energy people put into projecting the 68-team field. That practice has yielded its own word: bracketology, with any number of people attempting to nail down not just which teams will make the tournament, but what they'll be seeded and where they'll go. With that in mind, CBS Sports bracketologist Jerry Palm released his 2023 NCAA Tournament bracket this week.

College basketball bracketology: Texas rises, UCLA falls in updated 2023 NCAA Tournament projection

Joe Lunardi updated his projected bracketology for the 2023 NCAA Tournament after the rosters have become mostly finalized. The season is right on deck, and we're about to get some answers on which offseason plans were correct. Arkansas' Eric Musselman earned a ton of praise this offseason for his aggressive retool. Michigan State's Tom Izzo got plenty of flack for sitting tight and not adding anyone out of the transfer portal.

NCAA Basketball: 5 early Bracketology storylines for 2022-23 season

+

NCAA Basketball season is approaching as fast as pumpkin spiced everything after September 1st. Practice has yet to begin and for some, that means talk of March and brackets is silly, but that doesn’t mean talking about some preseason storylines with an eye towards Selection Sunday and the NCAA Tournament. The 2022 tournament was the perfect way to bring the sport back to a sense of normalcy after having two years impacted by Covid.

Candid Coaches: How do you feel about the state of college basketball in 2022?

+

CBS Sports' Gary Parrish and Matt Norlander surveyed roughly 100 coaches for our annual Candid Coaches series. They polled everyone from head coaches at elite programs to assistants at small Division I schools. In exchange for complete anonymity, coaches provided unfiltered honesty about a number of topics. This is the final poll question in our summer survey on the state of college basketball. The NCAA is in the process of overhauling its rulebook and infrastructure, a mammoth undertaking by the Division I Transformation Committee that will redefine and (ideally) streamline what it means to be a D-I program moving forward. College basketball stands to be impacted by this in significant, if still undetermined, ways. For as much worry, intrigue and curiosity that exists over what's to come, those feelings are buttressed against the thrum of the past five years. College basketball has undergone -- through fits and starts -- constant change and been hit with a barrage of off-the-court headlines and legislative reworks that have kept the sport somewhat off-balance. It started almost five years ago to the day, when the FBI announced its covert investigation into bribery and fraud in recruiting. Since then, a Mark Emmert-appointed commission was formed, mostly didn't do anything to change basketball, and dissolved. The IARP was formed, has only adjudicated one case to date, and will be disbanded come 2023. NIL legislation, the transfer portal, a global pandemic, new transfer rules, emergence of the G League and Overtime Elite, conference realignment and even Baylor winning a national title have all transpired in recent years. What was once unthinkable became reality. It would be an exaggeration to state college basketball is at a crossroads. But it's a tender time -- depending on the lens one looks through. Our final question in this year's series is a sport-wide temperature check.

Ducks move up in latest NCAA Tournament Projections

With Oregon's men's basketball roster getting word they'll have Will Richardson back for the 2022-23 season combined with its offseason additions via the transfer portal and traditional commitments, the Oregon Ducks have moved up in a big way in the latest ESPN Bracketology Projections for next year's NCAA Tournament. Joe Lunardi now has the Ducks out of the 8/9 game in the bracket and instead has moved them into a seed that could launch them into the second weekend of the NCAA Tournament.

the top 25 super seniors in men's college basketball for 2022-23

+

Super seniors are here to stay for at least the next four seasons until the student-athletes who were on campus in the 2020-21 years cycle through. That means instead of five seasons to play four, student-athletes now have six to play five. Super seniors were major factors on rosters last season. That won't change in 2023. Here is my list of the top 25 in this category in the pre-pre-preseason:
