Here Come Da Fwy-Ers: The Seventh Bald Prophet Bracket Projection

Marc DaleyAnalyst IFebruary 17, 2009

Last four teams to run out for tuxedos: Providence, UNLV, Florida, and Wisconsin. The Friars are 8-5 in the Big East. UNLV beat Louisville and sits as a solid fourth in the up-and-coming Mountain West. Florida is sketchy following a loss to moribund Georgia on the road but are still young and dangerous, much like a teenager with a newly minted driver's license. Wisconsin has gotten their act together and has a 29 RPI.

Last four teams to hope to crash in bad tuxedo t-shirts: Cincinnati, Maryland, Penn State, and Southern Cal.  Southern Cal drops out following two straight losses as the divas have to figure out to play together. Cincinnati isn't quite there—yet.  Penn State has a decent record but a lousy RPI in the 70s. Maryland could be one to watch as they have jelled following a vote of confidence by the AD for Gary Williams.
