    Jerry Palm Bracketology

    Hey guys, I know it's only December, but just saw Palm updated his bracket.

    He has ISU as a 4 seed, which I think is fair and kind of surprising to see from Palm.

    Here is the link (The bracket is linked in the page): Bracketology: Plenty of teams are still untested - CBSSports.com

    May just be one of those guys who has to have a team prove it to him before he believes it. I'll take him as a recent convert to the Fred.

    Re: Jerry Palm Bracketology

    Not surprising when Jerry loves the Big 10 and we are in first place in the Big 10 at 2-0

    Re: Jerry Palm Bracketology

    Palm's biggest thing is just playing real teams. We've done that this season and we've also beaten all of the "real" teams.

    Re: Jerry Palm Bracketology

    Damn. I'd take a first round match up with Drexel, then either Louisville or Toledo for a trip to the Sweet 16. We could easily go to the Final 4 from there.

    This. Jerry is a slave to the Big 10 and with 2 wins over "his" teams he finally thinks ISU deserves some credit.

    Lot of season left between now and the dance...but it's nice to get a little love from someone who rarely gives us any. :)

    I'm shocked we aren't listed in the 16 seed play in game.

    Re: Jerry Palm Bracketology

    Florida as a 3 seed in that bracket would get UL Lafeyette, Dayton, and Villanova (as a 2!?) to go to the Elite 8. Give me that position please. Just throw Wisc in at the #1 in that bracket and it'd be straight Final 4.

    Re: Jerry Palm Bracketology

    ESPN BPI has ISU as a 3 seed. Both indices seem comparable.


    P.J. Farmer rocks!

    Re: Jerry Palm Bracketology

    I like this but I'm supposed to boycott Jerry Palm! I'm so confused!!

    EDIT: In seriousness, the Palm Reader feature is actually really cool. Put in a team name and it will tell you what can happen today for that team's RPI to go up.

    Re: Jerry Palm Bracketology

    Jerry puts more emphasis on road and neutral wins than the commitee.

    Re: Jerry Palm Bracketology

    His 1-thru-4 seedlings make more sense overall right now than Lunardi's.

    Louisville as a 5 is lower than I would have thought.

    Re: Jerry Palm Bracketology

    He must have been drinking heavily when he did this, based on his past comments and projections.


    -Be kind. That is something you will never regret. You will never say to yourself when you are old "I wish I was not good to that person".
