Can we just go ahead and take the latest Bracketology?


Joe Lunardi released his first Bracketology of the new year, and honestly, I’d be just fine if the NCAA printed it up and we started playing the games now. Lunardi has Kentucky as the 2-seed in the South Region (Memphis), playing its opening round games in Indianapolis. The 1-seed in the South Region? The team likely to be #1 in the country following Villanova’s loss, Baylor:

Um, yes please! Also of note:

  • Currently, Lunardi believes only four SEC teams will get in: Kentucky (2), Florida (5), South Carolina (8), and Arkansas (8). Be better, SEC.
  • The four #1-seeds: Villanova, Kansas, Gonzaga, Baylor. If you predicted that at the beginning of the season, get on a plane to Vegas right now.
  • Duke’s a two-seed in the Midwest, North Carolina a two-seed in the East, and Louisville a four-seed in the Midwest.

To check it all out for yourself, head on over to ESPN.

    Absolutely….Baylor can’t shoot; and, they have a lot of unforced turnovers.

  2. runningunnin.454

    Can’t see Gonzaga as a #1 seed….very weak conference, and they can’t beat UCLA.

  3. C8TS

    This would be ideal. Baylor or Gonzaga as our 1/2 seed would be fantastic!

  4. A_Blue_Wildcat

    That would be a great bracket to get, but lets be honest, there’s no way we get a bracket that doesn’t have WVU, UL, UNC, or Indiana (before the elite 8).

    1. serdi

      Agree…it would be so nice to have a “no agenda” bracket, but we never get such a thing….The other powers do, but not us. It would be so exciting to see a bracket like that.

    2. BlueGrass

      At some point, don’t we have to get a favorable bracket? We can survive a tough bracket this season, but I really want a Final Four this year…and title.

    The Cats would wreck this bracket en route to a convincing final four berth

    1. BlueGrass

      Yeah, of course, this will change 20 times between now and when it matters, but put us in this bracket it doesn’t even matter the seed you give us and we’d walk out of it into the Final Four 99 times out of 100.

  6. sincitycat

    All I want is a chance to play Indiana.

  7. kenny

    This would probably be dukes bracket

  8. nicky

    What, no UofL in our bracket??

  9. BLUEVADER

    We will be a 1 seed and bet your butt the IU will be the 8. No way we are a 2 seed. We will be a 1 in a much tuffer bracket then this one here

    1. UK Big Board Update

      “tuffer”? Are you serious?

  10. EdC

    The answer to all of the above is Lunardi = hack 6 seed if there were a bracket of bracket pickers.
