For UK fans, the most popular class over the past few months hasn’t been science, math, or English, as the most studied subject in the state of Kentucky has been “bracketotlogy”.
ESPN’s Joe Lunardi is one of them more respected analysts when it comes to deciphering the any statistical factors of college basketball that determine who get’s into the NCAA Tournament.
In his latest update, Lunardi has Kentucky as 11 seed in play-in game against La Salle in Louisville’s region, while also having a potential 1/8 matchup between UL and Tubby Smith’s Minnesota Golden Gophers:
Last Four In
- La Salle
- Boise State
First Four Out
- Middle Tennessee
- Ole Miss
Next Four Out
- Southern Miss
- Arizona State
To sum it up, we could see UK in a play-in game in Dayton, then face Shabazz Muhammad’s UCLA Bruins, followed by Tom “Kentucky-Killer” Izzo’s Michigan State Spartans, followed by a 2012 National Championship rematch with Kansas, and ending with a Final 4 berth on the line against Louisville?
ESPN has never hear of good storylines, have they?
