so, the tourney starts next week, right? No reason to play the games as the guy who lives in a cave has already figured out the season before rosters are even finalized.

You can at least start making travel plans for the second weekend in advance.

Yeah, I'm about as connected to Bracketology as one can be and still discuss this with other bracket nerds deep into summer, but this thread is completely useless until late December or early January.

200% 👍. I guess Lunardi gives espn.com some clicks, otherwise his take is meaningless until late February.

Who cares?

Get rid of recruiting rankings until kids are into their senior high school seasons, because things change over the years right?  So they're pointless early, I guess.

Get rid of polls because they're pointless early in the year and don't really matter for anything at the end of the day.

Get rid of KenPom and predictive rankings until half way through conference season.

Heck, just invite 4 one seeds to the Tournament and let them duke it out for a title.

It's entertainment.  People complain about college football giving the shaft to every other college sports, and then complain that college basketball is throwing out ultimately useless stuff to entertain college basketball fans during the summer, after the portal is closed and the date to withdraw from the NBA Draft.

Hot take.  Prophetic in fact.

I am good with all your suggestions if it will stop discussion of NCAA seeding prior to the February prior to the tourney.   and mock drafts, kill them too...
