Joe Lunardi moves Kentucky back into “Last Four In”

With the win over Florida, Joe Lunardi once again updated his latest bracketology. With the win, Kentucky has now replaced Tennessee in Lunardi’s “Last Four In” group for the NCAA Tournament. 

Don’t stop believing?

    Lunardi is the ultimate bandwagoner.

    We need some other bubbles to burst for good measure, then win at least 1, preferably more in the SEC tourney.

    We can also thank Tubby and Minnesota for the choke job they have going on up in Minnesota. Crushed today at Purdue and loss at an awful Nebraska team earlier in the week. They are below .500 in the Big Ten now.

    One win in the SEC tourney should prevent us from playing in Dayton…Great win for the CATS!

    #4 Minnesota is in the tourney regardless.

    That’s great, but I don’t think he has any control of who’s in or out. He’s guessing just like everyone else. He just likes to d*** around with data.

    7) He never misses more than 2 teams in a year.

    Who cares what he thinks! What gives him the qualifications to decide that. Is he sitting in the selection committee room?

    But he does miss.

    Hope he’s right here. I just get annoyed being jerked around with his constantly changing projections when really doesn’t have any final say.

    11…he has no say…he isn’t on the committee…talking heads just spew what gets hits and reaction for drama…I think we are in but we won’t know until next Sunday….Go Cats!

    Lunardi’s like the crazy Aunt no one enjoys having over. Plenty of advice, talking out of their ass.

    5 — That’s the last thing I’m worried about. How about just win and go where they put us? I’d be more than happy to play in a Dayton game. The crowd would be pro-UK and it could be a game we could absolutely win.

    Guys, don’t worry what he says right now. Regardless of what happens, we have to have the mindset that we still have work to do. We need to go to the SEC Tournament and play great and win, win, win!

    People who get annoyed or bothered by Lunardi’s projections are just missing the entire point. The guy is just trying to give an accurate gauge of where the teams will be ranked by the committee if they were choosing today. His projections are “constantly changing” because the status of teams are constantly changing based on them winning or losing games.

    16. You are absolutely wrong, I like you, But you’re (your) wrong… Lunardi’s bracketology is for getting website hits for ESPN’s advertising.

    Hair piece ?

    Rpi is a joke. Bpi seems to be better. When a team like New Mexico is 2nd in rpi there’s a flaw and this can’t be used by the selection committee in determine who gets in.

    19. I like your reasoning. Louisville is #1 BPI. GO CARDS! And for the UKAY fans who will think or say, get off our board troll? Kiss my $#@$!

    I totally get the concept and why his data changes. I just don’t see any point in glorified projection this far out by someone with no real authority. Maybe in the days leading up to Selection Sunday. Others obviously are into it, but it annoys me.

    Louisville is good for now…for Louisville. They’ll be back to normal before long.

    What irritates me is being told by the media that Lunardi has us in or out like that’s all that needs to be said. And he has NO INFLUENCE. He’s making educated guesses.

    Lunardi’s hair piece is definitely first four out!

    21) I agree no use in really looking at this until next week. Lunardi is usually gets it right but that’s on his final poll not one 3 weeks out. UK is the best position if they win their in that simple. I’m a die hard UK fan but after the way we played against Arkansas and UGA I really don’t think we deserve to get in this year! Knowing what was at stake and playing the way they did!

    No more road games. Let’s just win the rest of them. Win out. W hy not. WE’re KY. They’er Fla. GO CATS!

    Nothing against Lunardi but he doesn’t have access to any information the rest of don’t. He’s up and down like a yo-yo and the chances of him getting the last 4-6 teams in are about the same as letting a chicken pick them. We have some good wins but we have some bad losses, a good showing at the SEC tourney will seal the deal but there are always teams on the outside looking in that felt they belonged. Keep winning and forget the prognosticators.
    GO CATS!
