- Yesterday most sites released their weekly bracket predictions. Jerry Palm at CBS has Northwestern as his third team out, Andy Glockner at SI has NU out, but does list them as one of his 7 also considered, and Joe Lunardi doesn't even have the 'Cats listed. I was surprised that Lunardi (who by the way has the most obvious rug I have ever seen, he can't be serious with that thing) didn't even mention NU, and I was a bit puzzled by his reasoning when asked about the 'Cats in a chat:
The Wildcats aren't good enough, plain and simple. And, even with the weekend upset of Purdue, they are just 2-3 in the Big Ten. That's not going to get it done.
