    Lundardi's latest bracketology

    Bracketology - NCAA College Basketball Brackets and Predictions - ESPN


    Has Texas in the dance at a 10 seed on the rise. Guess he really likes the win they had over Okie State.

    This guy is such a clown. What an embarassment of a human being Joe Lunardi is.

    You realize he has an insanely good percentage of picking the teams correctly, right?

    Not that bracketology means much right now.

    I agree with that. However, just as a little tidbit, his Insider article has ISU as a team that is starting to get consideration, which is pretty cool.

    Sorry in advance if this violates the sharing premium info rule...

    Re: Lundardi's latest bracketology

    He does seem to favor big names early in a season (what do you expect, he works for ESPN) but his final brackets are usually excellent. Hasn't he only missed 1 or 2 teams total over the last several years?

    Re: Lundardi's latest bracketology

    He also had UNI as one of the first four out. If true, that would help us in that our loss to UNI would look not as bad by the end of the season.

    Re: Lundardi's latest bracketology

    Texas was an 11 seed last week in his bracket...

    Doesn't even have us in the first four our or the next four out. Has Oklahoma and Northern Iowa in there however...

    Re: Lundardi's latest bracketology

    I'm not sure if the Bracketology is done 'as it would be selected today' or as he sees things unfolding in the future, but if it's the former, his selections make no sense.

    He actually missed 3 last season and usually misses on one if not two each year. He maybe ESPN's resident bracketologist, but that doesn't mean that he is anywhere close to perfect...

    Re: Lundardi's latest bracketology

    Most of us would be able to pick 65-66 of the 68 teams. There is only a couple screw jobs a year. His picks are for now, not at the end when it's more obvious.
