What a mess this bracket is right now.  The top seeds are a big mush, and really there are about 12 undeserving teams on the bubble, 4-6 of which will actually make the tourney.

No more overrated/underrated...we know who I think is too high or too low at this point.

Last 8 In

Boston College
Minnesota
Michigan
San Diego State
Penn State
UNLV
South Carolina
Florida

First 8 Out

Arizona
Maryland
Creighton
St. Mary's
Temple
UAB
New Mexico
Miami-FL

Really don't know how to differentiate between Florida, Arizona, and Maryland at this point.  If UF or the Terps keep winning, I guess they get it.  Or if they all lose and Temple makes the A10 finals, maybe they sneak in...either way, I don't understand Lunardi's New Mexico fasination.  I didn't understand it before they lost to Wyoming, and I REALLY don't understand it now.  But that's all I'll say about Lunardi's latest bracket--it makes no sense whatsoever.
