Remember all those times a short little guy by the name of Joe Lunardi came on ESPN and started jabbering on about bubble teams, the last four in, the first four out, the 1-seeds, 2-seeds and the top-overall team?
Well, maybe you should have been paying more attention to his lectures.
It’s pretty simple: Joe Lunardi is more than a simple Bracketologist. The man has his Bracketology Ph.D — and no, we are not done with the classroom/school metaphors.
With the conference tournaments finishing up, Lunardi faced his final exam. The official NCAA Brackets were set to be released, and Lunardi’s bracket was set to be scrutinized against the real thing.
Well, he passed with flying colors.
Joe Lunardi went 68 for 68, nailed all the 1-seeds and 2-seeds.And his last 4 in were the last 4 in.Nicely done, Mr. Bracketology.

And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how you earn that advanced Bracketology degree.
