B101's Bold Prediction No. 25

No. 25: Down Goes Lunardi...Again
It's almost too easy to pick on Joe Lunardi, ESPN's smug and omnipresent Bracketology "expert," (and his cop-out, season-ending-today prediction method) but last year, he gave us more statistical ammunition than ever before. Lunardi missed just two at-large teams (as did almost everyone else, including us), but the rest of his final bracket was laughable. He seeded only 19 teams exactly (B101 had 27), and seeded only 48 within one seed line (B101 had 52). He also managed to miss a number one seed (UCLA over Florida). And, oh yeah, he lied about the number of teams he had within one seed line on national TV.

This year, our Bold Prediction No. 25 is that, once again, we will be more realistic than Lunardi during each week of the regular season and more accurate when the final field is announced on Selection Sunday. The numbers, again, won't lie...

The picture of Lunardi is priceless. Great work as always.
