On this week’s Bracket Racket, we take an in-depth look at the recent games by top teams such as Louisville, Syracuse, Michigan State, Indiana, and Creighton, as well as the prospects of emergent bubble teams such as LaSalle, Villanova, Arizona State, and Maryland. In the first hour, we welcome USA Today’s Eric Prisbell, and get his thoughts on everything from the Big Ten’s best team to the small conference school with the best chance of springing an upset in the first round of the tournament. We also welcome show booker Hank Glassner to the podcast, and get his thoughts on the Pac 12, Mountain West, and more.
We also spend some time looking at our early S-curve ratings, as Galen and David give their top 16 teams as of now. Finally, take a look at the upcoming games for this week, and are a bit dismayed that the slate isn’t as exciting as last week’s.
