The Bearcats Forecasted As 8 Seed for March Madness

It’s never too early for a little bracketology, right?  The CBS Sports’ Rampant-and-Wanton-Speculation-Machine fired up yesterday, as Jerry Palm released his bracket predictions.  He listed Cincinnati as an 8 seed (East), Temple as an 8 seed (South), and SMU as a 10 seed (South).  UCONN is conspicuously absent from his Madness predictions.  To see the full bracket, click here.

On another note, when the heck will the Cats be ranked in the Top-25?  Right now they are #34 in all the land.  Their RPI is currently .6024.  With a 10-3 record with wins over San Diego State, NC State, and SMU, and a 40th ranked strength of schedule, I think it’s about time!  UC’s only losses came from notable teams, including Ole Miss (early stumble), VCU (team learned Cronin was out an hour before tipoff), and Nebraska (double OT by 1 point).
