  1. Nice work with the bracketology. I know it can't be easy. Pitt as a 3 seems crazy from a talent perspective, but I guess it's deserved with the last 3 against WVU, at Marquette, and against Villanova. New Mexico seems like a week 3 too, but I guess maybe nobody else out there has a better resume. I've seen Pitt and New Mexico in person this year though, and neither looks like a top 12 team in terms of the eye test.

    Keep up the good work.
