FWtCT Bracketology: Updated Jan. 15th

Like Tommy Lee Jones at the Golden Globes, Calipari isn't impressed. - USA TODAY Sports

Prestige alone won't save tradition-rich programs, Kentucky and North Carolina, from the numbers for much longer.

TRENDING UP:
NC State (4-seed) - After a win vs #1 Duke, the Wolfpack are riding a ten-game winning streak.
Oregon (6-seed) - This team should be known for their great balance (wins over UNLV and Arizona), not their weird court.
Ole Miss (8-seed) - Knocking off #10 Missouri at home gave the Rebels the marquee win they needed. The biggest challenge now will be managing expectations and not falling on the bubble again.

TRENDING DOWN:
Big Name Programs - Kentucky (12-seed), UNC (12-seed), and Georgetown (11-seed)
are all in danger of missing the Big Dance, if they don't start getting quality wins.
Illinois (7-seed) - A 1-3 start to Big Ten play has them coming back down to earth after their incredible run to open the season.
