Give me this fake bracket, please

Kentucky’s still a five-seed in the latest Bracketology, which is fine and whatever, but I’d take their draw in a heartbeat. In Joe Lunardi’s latest projections, Kentucky is in the Midwest Region with (1) Purdue, (2) Duke, (3) Arizona, and (4) Texas Tech. Fortunately, Duke and Arizona are on the bottom half of the bracket, making the top half not terribly scary to this blogger:

I’m sure Seth Greenberg is just itching to tell me how great Purdue is — and he’s probably right — but if Kentucky’s able to put together a consistent 40 minutes of effort (a big if currently) by March, give me their length and athleticism over the Boilermaker’s shooting any day.

Meanwhile, I have a much bigger bone to pick with this bracket. How is North Carolina still a four-seed after losing three straight games? The Tar Heels have SEVEN losses this year but still seem to get the benefit of the doubt from both the pollsters and Lunardi; in fact, the ESPN BPI predicts North Carolina will end up as a three seed when all is said and done:

I don’t get it.

      I would take Vegas’ odds to win over Lunardi any day of the week. UK 20-1…UNC 33-1. Vegas is way more accurate.

    I like a No. 5 for UK. Side note, WKU deserves to be on the bracket.

    I really like the Louisville – MTSU pairing in the first round. MTSU would likely pull off the upset as they’ve done the past couple years, beating Minnesota and Michigan State.

      You do realize this is all nonsense from Joe Lunardi right?

    Obviously no one is buying Kentucky’s youth right now but they’ll all be jumping on the bandwagon in the tourney.

    It seems like the sports media has been unusually down on UK this year.

    Fake seeding, fake classes, it all goes hand in hand.

    I like the bracket but would rather not have Duke as the two.

    They don’t call them UNCheat for nothing.

    Purdue has twin big men that are well over 7 feet. Richards and SKJ are the only big men we have that can match up with them; PJ, Wenyen, Tai and Kev are way undersized for those matchups. Could be trouble given the inconsistency and foul trouble of our frontcourt.

    It is super easy to understand. You just have to get by the syndrome of believing what somebody says just because they are on TV and get a lot of publicity. They aren’t good at picking brackets, Lunardi especially so. By now you should know that they have no credibility.
