Kentucky is a projected one-seed, Joe Lunardi needs a hobby

bracketology

Will someone please find Joe Lunardi a summer job? A hobby? Something?

The man behind ESPN.com’s Bracketology released his projected seedings for the 2014 NCAA Tournament today, 335 days before the tournament actually begins. As you can see in the bracket, Lunardi puts one-seeded Kentucky up against the Northwestern State/Texas Southern winner in the second round — I’m still not used to calling it that — in St. Louis. The winner of Kansas State and Wichita State would await in the third round, if this were the actual bracket. But it’s not. And it’s the middle of April.

Take a vacation, Joe.

    He picks 68 college teams, over 50 of which are AQs or no-brainers, and feeds them into a bracket. His job is a vacation.

    i’m a little worried about wichita state…a team that returns nearly everyone from a final four team. and also, could this be the committee setting up a wiggins brothers match up in the second round? does lunardi know something we don’t?

    Next year the Cats need not be worried with anyone but themselves. If this team meshes, they can be unbeatable

    Last years team was projected this high too. Obvioualy I think they’ll be much better this year but I need this team to play with a chip on their shoulders and prove themselves before they get a 1 seed.

    Over/Under on the number of Bracketology posts on KSR between now and the beginning of next season – 10

    If he’s going to publish predictions this early, I’d like to see some stats on how accurate he is. If his prediction this time last year was 75% or something, then it may be worth taking a look at. Otherwise, it’s worthless.

    He needs a damn girlfriend.

    His bracketology should be outlawed. He doesn’t predict the bracket anymore…he dictates it. The committee follows bracket step for step now. They don’t decide their own bracket, they just listen to him. There is no way that he can predict, as accurately as he did this year, the exact 68 teams and seeds, that the “committee” will select. They just do what they have been hearing him say for the whole year before…

    When you can predict the end of the season before the season even starts, then basketball has become too predictable.

    Us and Cuse in the regionals , just the way wisconsin plays will give a little game fits. But we should run through that bracket darkhorse will be Memphis, though. When can we start ordering tickets ? I love that draw though.

    I don’t think Joe is going out on a limb too much here but may I play devil’s advocate and remind BBN about this time last year when we thought we’d just waltz in and get #9. Obviously, we would be one of the teams that could win it but I hope we all remember that anything can happen in college basketball. With all of that said, this post is fn hilarious. I agree, somebody teach this man how to fish or some sort of hobby. Take a break Joe….dang

    *If Wiggins commits to UK then I would at least concede that UK would more than likely become the favorite. I don’t care what Vegas says now….they gave us the 3rd best odds to win it this past year behind IU and UL.

    That cinches Wiggins to UK so he can give his brother a beat down.

    Ill have to disagree with this, Wichita State will be a better seed, 5 at worst next year

    I hope Colorado or Memphis take out Syracuse. Don’t want to face that zone with two days of practice.

    Drew, who put you up to this Matt? Whom thinks he is slick having Drew post this garbage, because he knows the crazy ass fanatics would hear about it and go to the link. Putting more and more pennies into Matts pockets. Knowing we beleive this crap all we want to see and hear is that UK is the number one seed lol.
