The totally different states of NCAA match bracketology

The NCAA tournament that we lost last season has been found – and will be unlike any other such event.

The reality of the coronavirus pandemic means the 2021 NCAA tournament will be held in a single destination – the state of Indiana – using multiple venues and adjusting the usual tournament schedule. The Final Four is expected to take place at Lucas Oil Stadium on April 3rd and 5th, but uncertainty will continue to prevail after a regular season marked by numerous cancellations and postponements throughout college basketball.

It is expected that the selection of a field with 68 teams will remain known. This is where Joe Lunardi comes in. Joey Brackets will continue the bracket math, making projections on the field through selection Sunday on March 14th.

You’d think blue blood cells learned a lesson. If they are ever able to schedule “replacement” games outside of the league at the end of the season, they should take a tough pass. A week ago, North Carolina was embarrassed by Marquette and tasted a full line of seeds. On Thursday night, Kansas tried the same with UTEP and almost paid the price. The miners led for 38 minutes before the Jayhawks ran a late rally to escape with a win. A loss could very well have made KU fall out of the top 4 seeds.
