The overpaid Joe Lunardi is back this Thursday with a new edition of his ESPN Bracketology.
In this week’s tournament projection, Joey Brackets moves Kentucky from the East to the Midwest, still as a No. 3 seed.
That scenario includes first-weekend matchups with Akron and either Notre Dame or the Seton Hall/TCU play-in winner in Indianapolis, and then the brutal field of Final Four contenders in Kansas (1), Arizona (2), Duke (4) and Wisconsin (5) in Kansas City.
Hard pass on that gauntlet.
