Back to Bracketology
Is it too early? Yes. But, mostly no. Joe Lunardi is back at it and his first bracket of the season has been released: http://espn.go.com/mens-college-basketball/bracketology.
Three of the four 1 seeds are simply the first three teams in both polls: North Carolina, Kentucky and Ohio State. Then Lunardi gets really crazy and skips right past number 4 UConn to give the fourth 1 seed to Syracuse, the number 5 team in both polls. And that's about as crazy as you would expect things to get this early in the season. I know there is a lot of work that goes into Lunardi's method, so I'm not going to try and tear any of this down. For the record, I agree with Syracuse over UConn sans Kemba Walker anyway.
For anyone pondering the age old question of when will Northwestern dance (which I always am), Lunardi has them sitting at an 11 seed right now. Crossing my fingers.
Oh, and by the way, for anyone who would like college credit in bracketology, here you go http://www.sjuprofessional.com/bracketology-course.asp. No, this is not a joke. Yes, you can take a college class in bracketology from Professor Lunardi. I know, the world is awesome.
