Bracketology

Postby Anti-Homer » Tue Feb 11, 2020 5:23 pm

Selection Sunday is a little less than 5 weeks away, and X is currently projected anywhere between a 9th and 11th seed. We know this can change pretty significantly for the better or worst, but I obviously like the trend X is on now. The two foremost experts are Joe Lunardi and Jerry Palm. Following is a tweet I saw documenting their ability to prognosticate the teams/seeds last year. As you can see, both did really well.

There a lot of hacks (more so than not) who put projections out, but many simply plagiarize others, or base it off of the NET, which is as flawed as basing it off of the RPI or Sagarain ratings solely. I will periodically update the standings of these two guys. Following were their results from 19.'


This was tweeted out recently, with the title of, "A fun little final Bracketology recap."

Teams in tourney correct
Jerry Palm: 67 (all but TCU)
Joe Lunardi: 67 (all but TCU)

Teams correctly seeded
Jerry Palm: 41
Joe Lunardi: 47

Teams seeding blown (off by 2 or more spots)
Jerry Palm: 7
Joe Lunardi: 4

The guys can make a good impression on Wednesday with a win because the away game quad one win would be one of the best this year. The D will have to be about the best we have seen, and the bench needs to contribute. We can't see Butler hitting threes because they are tough when they are hot. They are expecting bad weather, so if you are headed up 74, you might want to do it early.
I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em.
