Professional Realist's Bracket Projection - Feb. 17th

Another great day of games ahead, but this is where I've got the state of the bracket as of right now. I'm not 100% thrilled with the way that I have it, but given the number of upsets in the world of college basketball, I think we will continue having more shifting today, as well.
