ESPN has a braketology in which they project 68, 48 and 16 team fields, due to the uncertainty of how the tourney will play out. Lunardi projects us as a 3 seed in each of those brackets. Now sure how likely, if at all, it is that the tourney gets condensed like that but I think it underlines how important it is to get a higher seed this year. It would certainly be a bummer to be in the 5 or 6 seed range only to see the NCAA decide to go with a smaller 16 team tournament
Lunardi actually moved us up to the last 2 seed after Tuesday's games. Yesterday's Houston loss dropped them behind us and moved us up to the 3rd 2 seed. He doesn't update the web version daily but he was on SVP's show and updated his top 2 seeds.
This matters a lot this year since the NCAA has said they are going to basically seed straight down the S curve. (Not that Lunardi's S curve, specifically, matters, but in general, it's something to think about.)
