Re: 2016-17 Bracketology

It really shocks me how much the TV talking heads still love Rhody. Dan played right into it with CBSSports post game interview.

Remains to be seen if that love plays a role on selection Sunday.

I'd rather just win out and skip the drama.

Would those current strong programs be able to reload or would the other Rams, Bonnie's and others have their chance to move up?
