What Lincoln is Thinkin' - Bracketology 2

Here's my second go at Bracketology.  I think it's a much stronger bracket than my first try last week.  This time, I have VCU being the final team in the field of 68. There's lots of reasons why I think they'd make the tournament if it began today, but because so much can and will happen over the next week, I will pick up that debate next Monday/Tuesday after we know their fate in the CAA Tournament.
