RE: Keatts on ESPN Charlotte
Hawks should be an 11 seed at least but you just don't know. Let's hope for a good matchup regardless because that's all that matters. Even still, this UNCW team is going to give somebody a real problem because this is like the 2002 team in that I didn't feel that they were a 1 and done. In reality, Hawks really could have advanced further in 2003 and 2006 but were very unlucky in the end. It would be great to see this team get on a roll in the tourney because they have the makeup to make that happen for sure.

I like the potential matchups on the 6 line a whole lot better than the 5!

Joe Lunardi has UNCW being an 11 and ETSU a 12. UNCW's RPI is 27 and ETSU's is 55. There should be more separation than one spot between #s 27 & 55.

Lunardi knows nothing about anything. Why anyone pays attention to him is baffling.

He relies on others' numbers and doesn't know basketball outside of name recognition.

He used to predict a SWAC-MEAC match-up in the play-in games. That never happened. It would look bad.

Except in the Celebration Bowl in football.

I saw him refer to himself as "Joey Brackets" the other day.

I nearly choked on my own vomit....

That's infuriating just to hear secondhand.

But it's not though. He's terrible at seeding picks, and he routinely misses 1 or 2 "last 4 in", which is all that matters when it comes to guessing who is in or out. Anyone can tell Gonzaga is in. The last 4 is the hard part.

His final bracket will sometimes look good because he gets insider info moments before the official brackets, but his earlier brackets all suck.
