ESPN Bracketology…..Cats vs Utes

The new ESPN Bracketology is out and the new story is same as the old. Joe Lunardi (who is scary good at this stuff) has the Cats currently projected as a 6 seed versus the 11 seed Utah. While Rick Majerus is gone to St Louis pastures, the memory of postseason beatings by the Cats must still live on with the Utes, who would certainly hate that matchup. However if the pairings played out as these suggest, the Cats would potentially see (GASP!) Marquette in round Two, and we most certainly dont like that matchup, if only for historic purposes. Below is the region as projected by Lunardi. Look it over…..as far as UK is concerned, I think it wouldnt be a bad setup for a postseason run….
