Here's a look at Joe Lunardi's recent bracketology...

No one in the Big Ten, including Michigan State, really scares me this season and Minnesota is no different.  The major downside of the bracket is the second round match up because you will be taking on Villanova right in their own backyard.  This is a major jump for Gonzaga, who has been sitting pretty in Boise and Portland lately.  Being in Philadelphia against a very, very good Big East team would be a tall task for Gonzaga.  If they managed to get out of their side of the bracket, the bottom half is very intersting with a bunch of teams that no one really knows a whole lot about.  Clemson has proven to be an exceptional team but I would really love to watch them match up against Arizona in that second round.  Push come to shove, I would expect to see the Tigers fall at the hands of the Wildcats if that match up were to happen.
