Bracketology! In April!


Our pal Mike over at Steady Burn alerts us that Joe Lunardi's mock-bracket is out -- for next year!!

We could've told you that UNC Asheville will be your team from the Big South and naturally pull No. 2 Notre Dame in the South Region, but Joe had to predict the entire thing, oh, 11 months ahead of time.

Some highlights:

-Your top seeds: Texas, Pitt, UNC, Duke
-Other 2008 Final Four teams: UCLA (No. 7), Kansas (No. 2), Memphis (No. 3).
-The Big East leads the way with nine bids, with the ACC, Big 12 and SEC getting six apiece.
-Washington is among the last four out -- but we're mentioned!!
-A possible Kansas-Memphis rematch in the Sweet 16 in Indianapolis
-Arizona could get back to the Final Four with the No. 2 seed in the West with top-seeded Duke...and the West Regional is in Arizona. They'll be a trendy pick. 'Cats, baby!

Yeah, it's April. Eleven long months before this is relevant again. But hey, Kansas fans while still feeling the joy of a winning a championship, can be knocked back down to Earth: their Bracketology stock is going down.

This confuses me, I just assumed that once the brackets were revealed, ESPN cryogenically froze Lunardi for 9 months?

Oh the hell with this. He's more useless than Kiper.

Missouri? He has Missouri in the field? As a 10 seed? Missouri?
