Lunardi is pretty much 100% on who gets in
But he's an ESPN company guy trying to screw over the Buffs, can I really trust him?
Bracket Matrix has a pretty good success rate
Yeah I like it, just looking for individuals not an assortment.
Bracket Matrix has a ranking for accuracy in the past: http://www.bracketmatrix.com/rankings.html
Wow that Lunardi guy is soooooooooooooo overated, I mean he's 35th, how does he still have a job?
I think the general consensus on Lunardi is that he's been good at picking who's in or out, but he loses points on his seeding. Which is why he's 35th.
It's, like, statistics, man.
I don't think picking the ins/outs is incredibly difficult, you get all the AQ's to begin with so you're not exactly picking 68 teams -- so it's 36 team, of which only the last six or so have any chance of not getting in. If you're a bracketologist, you really shouldn't have any more than 1-2 misses a year in the first place.
Going to be interesting to see if Lunardi's bracket sees some very big changes right before decision time. That way he can be accurate while being a tool for ESPN to drive their narrative!
what's missing form there is the time at which the prediction is compared to the actual. for example, Lunardi releases his brackets about 1/week until Feb, then starts multiple times per week. The week leading up to selection Sunday he usually publishes multiple updates per day (2 years he had VT as one of the last 4 in until SS morning's bracket release).
What '85 really wants to know is, whose the best at predicting 2 weeks out?
This is exactly what will happen.
Not so much that, but just good bookmarks for this kind of thing for now and future years. The bracketology is interesting, but shouldn't be taken too seriously until conference play starts, probably a few weeks into January actually.
Also, I noticed Lunardi hasn't updated it on the website daily, but he has on TV. Like how we went from first four in to being more comfortably in was never reflected online.
His website is updated now.
Yeah that must've been not too long ago. But like I said if you didn't watch ESPN and only went online, you would've never seen them being projected in Dayton.
Lunardi sucks ass at actual seeding. Bracket Matrix is the way to go, gives the complete picture
Ah -well, that's a different site.
Jerry Palm is who I pay attention to most. Did the collegerpi site for a long time, and is now with CBS Sports. Lunardi is good to.
