Lunardi projects Cats as #3 seed, against Morehead

bracketology-3-18

In what is probably the last edition of Bracketology before the selection committee makes their picks, ESPN’s Joe Lunardi finally moves the Cats to a #3 seed and has them squaring off with their little cousins down I-64 east, Morehead State.  The Cats are still projected to be in Tampa (winning!) and would have Kansas and North Carolina as their #1 and #2 seeds and Louisville as their #4.  There’s a lot of intrigue in this bracket, but it doesn’t seem likely the committee would place all of these teams together.  Morehead St. coach Donnie Tyndall would be very happy, though, according to the AP’s Will Graves.  He told Graves earlier this week that the Cats are the matchup he wants.  Drama!

    Sure Donnie Tyndall, Alabama thought they wanted us too. Don’t want to play any KY teams in this tournament, tired of being their damn super bowls, and when we win it was because we were supposed to. Screw that.

    Morehead is in Eastern Kentucky!

    Did Morehead move? I could have sworn they were EAST of Lexington!

    Lunardi projecting ND and Pitt to be #1 seeds – I just don’t see it. Plus I think if the committee really wants to do the right thing they select Harvard as an at large team.

    Dude also has USC in, at 19-14 in the Pac-10…

    This bracket isn’t worth a damn, let’s wait and see.

    North Carolina a #2 seed? ND and Pitt #1 seeds?

    Looking at the brackets and its apparent that the Big East is still running on previous year reputations in a really down year.

    This would be a nightmare of a bracket

    Would they really put 3 teams from 1 state in the same region.

    I’d take this bracket in a second. UK can beat UNC on a neutral court. Kansas will be a really tough out but that’s what we thought last year.

    #8 – yes they would do something that lame, as long as it is in UK’s bracket. I still remember 1985 or 1986 when the NCAA did something similarly underhanded and stuck Alabama and LSU in Kentucky’s bracket after UK had swept them during the regular season (thus making sure multiple SEC teams would NOT make the Final Four). It is very hard to beat a good team 3-4 times from your own conference and LSU got a 4th chance and kept us out of the Final Four.

    And of course look at last years seedings – WV should have been a #1 seed and we had to play them already in the Elite Eight while the brilliant NCAA selection comittee lays a red carpet for Duke straight to the Final Four.

    Placing 3 teams from 1 state in the same region wouldn’t suprise me at all.

    I’ll take the West bracket. SDSU and Pitt would be the best 1/2. Look for Vandy or Purdue to make a run in that bracket.

    I bet Billy Donovan would take that draw all day. That would be a favorable bracket for them.

    But remember, Lunardi’s wasn’t all that close with his bracket predictions last year…they don’t really have anything to do with what the NCAA selection committee actually does and will be forgotten once the seeding are announced.

    I would not want to be in a bracket with North Carolina! Only team that scares me, there better than when we got beat by them last time. They actually have a really good point guard now and there bigs are playing great!!!! Bad matchup for us, only team I don’t want to play!

    Boys, we do NOT want to face Louisville again. No way we beat them this time around and the thought of playing them in the tourney almost makes me sick.

    Lunardi is good at picking the teams, NOT there placement in the brackets. That’s too much for anybody to predict with any accuracy.

    16. Good grief, get a hold of yourself you little nancy.

    Lunardi isnt even good at picking which teams get in. He gets 97 percent of the teams in the field right. If you do the math, that would be 66 out of 68 teams. Sounds good, but 60 of them are obviously in. So he is left with about 10-12 teams for 8 spots and on average he gets 2 of those wrong. I say anyone can do that well.

    #16 – Nancy Weaver – A defining moment for you… what seperates the Boys from the Nancies.

    LMAO @ 18… well said, KYStout.

    16, quit posing as a UK fan and go back to your L’ville message boards.

    This bracket seems ridiculously tough. Kansas, Kentucky, and North Carolina in the same bracket? Too much star power.

    Those Matchup ain’t gonna happen. I will really be surprised if ND and Pitt are Ones. Plus, Bama should be in. We don’t wan UL, I believe UL could win it all.

    That looks about right – KU, UNC, UK, UL in one bracket with Notre Dame, Duke, BYU, and Wisconsin in another…. no bias there at all.

    how the hell can michigan state still be considered for the tourny, with 14 losses, 8 of their last 13, then drubbed by penn state in the conf tourny?wtf

    25) Because Izzo will get that team to the Elite 8 or Final Four, that’s how.

    How do we get a higher seed than Little Brother, when they made the Big East Championship? Of course when we win today, that may catapult us ahead of Lville in the seedings.
