As pointless as it is this early in the season, Lunardi's 1st Bracketology since the season started came out today. In the preseason one, he projected us as a 3 seed, and clearly a lot of things have changed in college basketball since. We are now sitting as a #8 seed in the East bracket going up against Dayton. Seeing as the best win we have so far is against RPI (ESPN) #103 FSU, and our worst loss is RPI #153 Charlotte, 8th seed seems very valid and maybe even a bit generous. Of course, while still interesting, this all means nothing, especially before conference play has begun.
Other interesting points:
- #1 seeds - Arizona, Syracuse, Louisville, OSU
- Big Ten teams (tied with ACC for the most teams with 7) - #1 OSU, #2 MSU, #2 Wisconsin, #6 Iowa, #8 U of M, #10 Indiana, #11 Minnesota
- FSU (#11) is the only team we beat projected to make it to the tourney. Charlotte is our only loss not projected to make it.
