Yep - the COLE approach applied to message boarding….  How can you speculate about future possibilities, focus your messaging on todays game.

Any idea when ESPN typically starts to put together their more in-depth bubble watch column? I always like the conference breakdowns as the categorization (i.e. Locks, should be in, work to do, etc.).

Not sure, but it was 2/19 last year. So probably 2/18 or 2/25.

Looking at Jerry Palms bracketology from 2/3 he had marquette as the (2nd) 3 seeds. Both the last 2 seed and top 3 seed lost this weekend (Kansas St and Virginia). Which would now make us the last 2 seed. I know there is a lot of ball left but we are setting ourselves up for at least a shot at a 1/2 if we keep playing great ball.

I know Lunardi and Palm are the OGs, but I would strongly recommend looking elsewhere for any bracket information. They simply aren't very good at bracketology. Here are a few worth looking at:

Bauertology
Delphi Bracketology
Jonathan Warriner

All far more accurate than Lunardi or Palm. There are a number of other good ones on Bracket Matrix.

What do you think of Bracketville Dave? I have followed him for a few years and his results seem to be pretty accurate.

He does a great job. Definitely someone I follow close and one of the best in the business.

Thanks for that list, brew.

Northwestern plays at Madison tonight. The first bracketologist has those teams as the last 2 in, and most others also have them at or near the line. Puts some extra oomph on this game. Would be fun to see NW knock Madison to the wrong side of the line.

As of this morning their NET is 77.  Wouldn't that be the lowest NET to ever receive an at large bid?

Rutgers was 78 last year.  But they also had 7 Q1 wins.  And that was only good enough for the First Four.

Gotcha, I knew it was either Rutgers last year or StJ in 2019, both of which fell somewhere in the 70's, but I was unsure of the exact number.

ESPN currently has TAMU as first out.  Buzz's letter is going to be single-spaced, double-sided, and written on an entire roll of toilet paper that wouldn't have been flushed anyway.

Buzz just cant take winning for an answer. Has it rolling here and feels the need to jump to a basement dweller V tech. Takes that program to prominence then feels the need to jump to a school that only cares about football. like what? whatever hes made bank

Buzz idealized the B12 (gave an interview once gushing over how much better all the fans and stadiums were  than the Big East) and idealized A&M so he was always going to try to get there at some point. Of course they hilariously left the B12 and now Texas is as well which means the only two schools buzz would've dreamed about arent in his favorite conference anymore

I just think his head will explode if they get left out again.  They still have yet to face Tenn or Alabama, though, and have games remaining against Auburn and Mizzou, so I'm thinking the bracketologists are (wisely) extrapolating 3-4 more losses before the end of the season.  Even still, he'll throw a fit.

Why would I follow these when others have Marquette with a higher seed?
