I stopped posting back in January (thanks for noticing ). Won't get into the reasons why. First - like many/most, I found this season frustrating and disappointing. For whatever reason, the team did not come together. The offense was, at many times, offensive. The coaching was suspect. But now it's over, so onward. The tourneys were taken away and for many of us, it feels as if our souls were stripped away. We LIVE for this time of year. Folks make pilgrimages to Nashville and Vegas just to enjoy the spectacle of tournament basketball. There can be no replacement for March Madness, but I do have an idea . . . I've seeded 68 teams for a hypothetical 2020 NCAA tournament. I'd like to locate a handful of judges, who would pick the scores of each game. Their picks would be factored to determine which teams advance. Another group of posters could submit bracket picks. We tally points and anoint a winner. This is just a prelim post to elicit thoughts, suggestions, and determine the nature/extent of interest. One final thought: This will not be a Lunardi bracket. It would consist of the seedings appointed by yours truly and I reserve the right to be wrong. Would not bother me at all for folks to critique the bracket. That in itself would provide some fodder and would be the starting point of the venture.
