    I just lost a LOT of respect for Joe Lunardi...

    Bracketology - ESPN

    Obviously he was just randomly picking schools to fill out his 96 team bracket because ISU ain't going to make it next year.

    That 96 team bracket looks like something Alice saw in Wonderland. I still cannot believe (I should by now) the NCAA's folly.

    Hey we weren't even part of the last 4 in. Solid in Joe's eyes for the field of 96.

    Finally some love! I like the Alabama match-up and I'm looking forward to the Duke re-match in Round 2!

    On a serious note I believe the OP was just upset that his favorite team KU was only a #3 seed.

    Does Lunardi know that we picked up Brandon Knight and no one else knows about it yet?

    Or he does not know we will struggle to win 12 games next year.

    Re: I just lost a LOT of respect for Joe Lunardi...

    I like this idea of 96 now! Anyway, makes for a good matchup with the #1 seed in the first round as they would have to play an average BCS school instead of the worst team in the tournament. Would like to think we have a better chance of being the first 16 to upset a 1, compared to some Tennessee Central A&M.

    The fact they are projecting a team as bad as ISU is going to be to make the 96 team field is an indictment on the NCAA for expanding the field. Hell... let's just expand the tournament to include every single D-1 basketball team so everyone gets a chance.

    This just in... ISU grabs the 325th seed in the big dance. Congrats to GMAC and staff on a great 5-27 season. They are primed for a deep run in the dance!!!!!!

    Boy, after looking at the bracket I fully realize now how inexcusable missing the tournament would be. There are alot of damn teams in that thing...
