Bracketology Fatigue is setting in across college basketball. Halftime updates from Joey Brackets have lulled America to sleep, but Jerry Palm is here to wake up the (Big Blue) Nation. After Louisville’s road loss to Wake Forest, not only are the Cards out of one-seed consideration, they’re behind Kentucky.
The Cardinals dropped down to a No. 3 seed and were replaced on the second line by Kentucky. I can hear the Louisville fans screaming already: “BUT WE BEAT KENTUCKY!!!” Yes, you did, but teams are judged on their entire seasons, not just one game, and right now, Kentucky has a better tournament rÃ©sumÃ© despite the head-to-head result.
Both teams have played strong schedules, with Louisville’s slightly better, but the Wildcats have a better record against the top 25, top 50 and top 100 and Kentucky has also beaten a high quality team away from home (North Carolina). That is something Louisville is still lacking.
U mad Rick?
