  1. How is Georgetown in, but not St. John's?

    1. Because Georgetown has a better profile. More top-50 wins, plus the injury consideration for Jabril Trawick's missed games. Based on profile, St. John's has nothing to put it ahead of Georgetown.

  2. Why do you not do bracketology for CBS sports? You do a very good job and to be honest, Jerry Palm is very mediocre.

  3. I think you're underselling Nebraska. Prob not in yet but closer than a few of your next eight out.
