Next Year's Tournament Bubbles Are Bursting

That’s it Gary Williams, pack it up. There’s no sense in even playing next season, because Maryland’s bubble has burst. Yep, as you can see, the Terps are in the “last four out” for next year’s Final Four Tournament, which Joe Lunardi has already completely sorted out. ↵

↵As if filing out a bracket -- right down to the regions teams will play in -- 11 and a half months premature isn’t a big enough waste of time, ESPN.com did a “chat” with Lunardi today. Not surprisingly, people are already pissed off about where the “bracketologist” seeded their teams. Although on the bright side, if Syracuse getting robbed by being a seven seed in the most hypothetical of sports hypotheticals is your biggest concern, then you’re probably living a pretty stress-free life. So there’s that. ↵

↵As for Lundari, has anyone ever made a career out of doing something this niche? (Spencer would like to offer up “reprocessed cattle parts salesman.” Touche.) Lunardi’s entire occupation is centered around make believe men’s college basketball tournament brackets. It really is just a made-up profession. The guy makes bloggers look like James Dean. ↵
