B101's Questions For The Competition

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's Andy Glockner. Keep in mind that these questions are about each expert's most recent brackets, which were released before Monday's games.

Joe Lunardi (ESPN) - Jan. 18 Bracket
First off, are we the only bracketologists working on Martin Luther King Day? What's with the Tuesday bracket?

How is Washington a 4 seed if the season ended today? Is it their one Top 50 win (over Portland)? How did they go up a seed line after losing at Stanford?

How did North Carolina go up to an 8 seed after losing by 20 at Georgia Tech?

How is Oklahoma State in over Colorado when the Buffaloes are two games better in conference and beat the Cowboys head-to-head?

Isn't Florida a little high as a 5 seed? Isn't West Virginia a little low as a 7 seed?

Andy Glockner (Sports Illustrated) - Jan. 18 Bracket
What would you do without Twitter? Seriously, we love following you, but we're getting a little worried about you. Help us help you...

Giving Old Dominion an at-large is debatable in itself, but the Monarchs deserve an 8 seed too?

Butler would deserve an at-large over Marquette if the season ended today?

Aren't Temple and UNLV a little low as 8 seeds?

I couldn't agree with you more on the obvious mistakes in the ballots. To have Temple and UNLV (who both have MANY quality OOC wins) at 8 seeds only continues to add to the mythology that mid-major teams who beat big conference teams (like Wisconsin, Virginia Tech, and Kansas State for UNLV and Georgia, Maryland and Georgetown for Temple) somehow isn't the same as if a conference foe beats them. What garbage...I guess this is why you have the BEST site for bracketology and continue to be one of the best overall when predicting the final bracket.

Which often loss RS Gold(or maybe border) do you consider is actually most surprising so far tonight--UCF sacrificing in opposition to Distance Carolina, Get up Natrual enviroment finding thumped by means of Georgia Technical, or even Western side Virginia currently being upset by simply Marshall? It really is to bad this time which Penn Condition has not been able to dig up this completed against Purdue--those form of probabilities to acquire job application increasingCheap Runescape Gold video games never arrive each day, not from the Major 10.
