    Honestly, I don’t know why ‘Bracketology’ is even exercised until mid February. It’s like those 2012 mock NFL drafts that come out midway thru the season.

    Do these basketball writers have so little to write about that they need to project teams 30-64 somewhere?

    I place early season ‘bracketology’ on my ever running ‘Pay no mind’ list.

    And Lunardi needs something to do?

    Doubt Bucky is a 5 seed still after tonight…..3 home losses in one year. They had 3 home losses in last 7-8 years combined? Does the DBT research department have a quick number on that?

    Tony you should be happiest about this mock bracket because Louisville is a 4 and IU a 3.
