It is less than 24 hours until we find out whether or not Indiana is in the NCAA Tournament field for 2015.
But another noted bracketologist, Jerry Palm of CBS Sports.com, still has Indiana in the field. In fact he has them as the safest of the final four teams still in the tournament bracket.
So which one of these guys is right? Indiana fans are clearing hitching their wagons to Palm (a Purdue graduate by the way) but he and Lunardi are clearly not on the same page on a few of the bubble teams.
Here is how things played out Saturday night, shortly after Wyoming beat San Diego State 45-43 to earn the conference’s automatic bid.
First, Lunardi’s latest bracketology report had Indiana among the first four out of the tournament after the Hoosiers had clung to the final spot for a few days in the last four in.
Here is a look at Lunardi’s bracket heading into Sunday.
Palm has IU playing Colorado State in a play-in game either Tuesday or Wednesday in Dayton, Ohio for a chance to get in the NCAA Tournament field.
Here is a look at Palm’s bracket.
But there are literally dozens and dozens of people doing bracketology reports. In fact, there are more than 50. The Bracket Matrix charts all of them and the majority it appears still had IU in the field as of late Saturday night. Indiana was averaging an 11 seed across the board in the Bracket Matrix report.
Here is a look at the Bracket Matrix in detail.
There’s a lot of uncertainty but there is one thing we know.
It will all be over very soon and IU’s fate will have been determined.
