    According to Joe..

    http://espn.go.com/mens-college-basketball/bracketology

    He says 6 from the Big 12 will make it in. So with CU being in 6th place, I figured CU may be close, but they take KSU? They play KU, UT, and Mizzou in the next few weeks, they will be lucky to finish out 3-3, putting them at 7-9, yet they are dancing? WTF

    If they are dancing then we sure as hell should be.

    Lunardi's projections, although usually pretty damn good, I think do have the flaw of relying to much on preseason projections. It takes a lot more to play yourself out of his brackets. I think the main reason he does this is because this is kind of how the selection comitte does it too, they sometimes give the benefit of the doubt to highly ranked preseason teams. You have to make a lot more noise being unheralded in early season. Unfortunately, perception is reality.

    Lunardi's whole gig he stole from Jerry Palm.

    KSU's rpi is in the 40's. as such, they are on the bubble. they also have a couple decent early season W's.

    KSU RPI ranks at 40 (16-9, 4-6).
    CU RPI ranks at 92 (16-10, 5-6).

    Not that hard to figure out. Head-to-head ain't gonna overcome that disparity.

    (RPI ranks are for before this weekend's games, KSU should be in the low 40s and CU might've climbed into the high 80s)

    What wins, Gonzaga (proved to be nothing) or VT (also now a nothing team). Or are you talking about the big wins over teams like savanah state?

    This team only has to look in the mirror to see why they wont be dancing. Beat OU, Baylor and ATM and they are in.

    In the BS Insider analysis part of ESPN, he says a loss to Kansas will put them out of the bracket. He for some reason thinks they have a chance to beat Kansas.

    I was surprised to see that he still had Michigan State in there, too. They're 14-10 and playing at Ohio State tomorrow. They may very well play their way in considering Izzo and his usual ability to get his teams to peak at the right time, but right now they shouldn't be in.

    Neither team has any solid wins, but KSU doesn't have losses to USF and Oklahome, or any team ranked lower than 30 in RPI, other than Colorado. Love the blatant homerism, but if I was the committee I'd take KSU over CU right now no question.

    I would take neither and look elsewhere.

    It's not just that, they played VT, Duke, Gonzaga and Florida in non-conference games and went 2-2 in those games. They also have a win over a decent WSU team on the road. They went 14-3 compared to our 11-4 non-conference, and their non-conference schedule was light year's tougher than ours.

    But what does surprise me a bit is that KSU wasn't even one of his last 4 teams in.
