Questions For The Competition is a weekly column that addresses our issues with the brackets of other bracketology "experts." Today's questions are reserved for ESPN's Joe Lunardi and CBSSports.com and CollegeRPI.com's Jerry Palm. Keep in mind that these questions are about each expert's most recent brackets, which were released before Friday's games.
Joe Lunardi (ESPN) - Feb. 26 Bracket
On Monday it was Purdue-Wisconsin, today it's a potential Duke-Maryland match-up in the SECOND round? Joe, all kidding aside, we're starting to get a little worried about you...
(UPDATE: Nice job fixing the Duke-Maryland screw up...too bad we had already spotted it and our readers had already posted comments about it this morning. You can't get anything past our Bracketing Principles mafia.)
UConn and Mississippi State in? SDSU out? That sounds very familiar...oh wait, it's our bracket from five days ago.
BYU's up to a 3 seed now? Is it because of their impressive total of two wins over tourney teams? OK, we understand then.
How mad were you when Northeastern lost to Hofstra? So much for keeping them in as the Colonial "automatic" and avoiding making a tough decision on the bubble.
Jerry Palm (CBS, CollegeRPI.com) - Feb. 26 Bracket
OK, we give up on calling you out about the A-10. Dayton is STILL in after losing at Temple?? You STILL have six A-10 bids? We're speechless.
Just to clarify: If the season ended today, Dayton's in, Charlotte's in, and UConn's out. You may want to repeat that to yourself out loud and listen to how ridiculous it sounds.
Nice job dropping URI from a 7 to 8 even though they haven't played this week yet. Are you slowly taking our advice on the way overseeded Rams?
Where's Mississippi State?
