WE CONSULTED THE EXPERTS: Our resident bracketologist, Joe Lunardi, picked each team's March-worthy matchups and bravely predicted NCAA tourney seeds four months early; former Virginia Tech coach and current ESPN analyst Seth Greenberg used X's and O's to show that no one is unbeatable; and Dan Hanner, an economist by day and RealGM.com contributor by night, crunched each team's next-level numbers to project offensive ratings for the players who should see the most minutes. Even after all that, just like the landscape in Indiana and Kentucky, this is one wide-open field.
