The results are in, and....

Lunardi took 135th place out of 174 bracketologists. He had only 33/68 teams seeded correctly (including 1- and 16-seeds which are pretty obvious)

Palm took 131st place, and had 34/68 teams seeded correctly -- one better than Lunardi.

The top bracket, Pulse On Sports, had 50 correctly seeded teams, and the next 30-40 or so brackets had at least 40 correctly seeded teams (which included Yahoo! and Fox).

So a bunch of people spend most of the year stressing about what Lunardi and Palm are projecting, and it turns out they are lousy at projecting? Seems like a good idea to ignore Lunardi and Palm's projections.

Lunardi has never ranked in the Top 20 of noted bracketologists.

Given the fact 20 #1 seeds won their Conference Tournaments, compared to only 11 top seeds last year, makes picking much more accurate...and competitive teams overall.

Lunardi was in the bottom 15% this year.

His anaylsis is rarely on.

The year he predicts us to be blown out (vs St Johns, vs West Virginia, vs Seton Hall), we smoke the opponent.

Nice enough guy, but one of the worst in the business at accurately seeding teams compared to others in his field....who get paid virtually nothing to do a better job.
