Somebody said he got 67/68 last year, is that right?
Cal is another team I'm surprised by. Safely in, by finishing 3rd in pac12, and losing to 10 seed Utah in first round. Same as our scenario in a way, except maybe worse.

Yeah, and I think one year he got them all right. Still, he usually misses a few, and where he misses is at the end of the line, i.e. UK, Tennessee, Alabama, etc. I suspect he'll miss a few this year because the bubble seems to be fairly large.
Lunardi has picked 67/68 twice in the last 5 years. However, last year (maybe the year before) he missed several. There is simply no exact science to predicting what the commitee will do, but Lunardi is as good as it gets at trying. That said...id be shocked to see UK on a seed line come Sunday.
I obviously feel otherwise, lol. Since I've been on here all day saying the opposite. But, I'm just not okay with us being out given our résumé. If espn has the sec with 3 in, how are we not? Of those three, we beat ole miss at ole miss, beat mizzou, and split with Florida. Finished second with 12 wins in conference. 21 wins overall, and the vandy loss was against a team that shot lights out 4 miles from their campus. We swept them in the season. I am pissed bc I think we are being penalized due to our preseason expectations, and the national media perspective. I feel like any other sec team in our shoes would already be safely in, not even last 4 in. Oh well, I guess I'm wrong, and I'm exhausted over the whole issue. Clearly my opinions will fall on deaf ears as far as the people deciding are concerned. The committee will probably not have my perspective, so I guess I'll just keep hope alive and watch like everybody else tomorrow. Go Cats!
Actually, we've only had 68 teams for the last two tournaments. Lunardi got 65 of 68 in 2011 and 67 of 68 in 2012.
Wichita state a lock, beat vcu and Iowa. 26-8. Meh
LaSalle. Beat vcu, and nova. 21-9. Meh
