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 SI.com'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) - Feb. 14 Bracket
What's with all the love for the Pac-10? Arizona's a 5? Washington's a 7?

Speaking of Washington, how are they two seed lines better than UCLA? Shouldn't that be the other way around, considering that UCLA is ahead in conference and has two OOC wins (BYU, St. John's) that are better than anything Washington has OOC?

How is there a two seed line difference between Temple (a 6) and Xavier (an 8)?

Andy Glockner (Sports Illustrated) - Feb. 14 Bracket
What year did you graduate from Colorado? Does your brother play on the team or something?

Seriously, how are the Buffaloes still in? With 10 losses, a 5-6 conference record, two wins in their past eight games, a 92 RPI, and one decent OOC win? They'd get a bid if the season ended today?

Isn't West Virginia a little high as a 4? Isn't Baylor a little high as a 10?

We don't do Bracket Banter on Mondays. There are only a couple of key games each Monday and we want the bracket to stand alone.

Tuesday's Bracket Banter will be up in a few minutes...
