MSU a #2 seed in Joe Lunardi’s 2018 Bracketology

It’s never too early to start thinking about March Madness. Ok, maybe it’s a little too early BUT STILL

NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament-First Round-Michigan State vs Miami Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

It’s no secret that the 2017-18 Michigan State Basketball team has some high expectations. Thanks to Miles Bridges’ return, MSU has been almost universally picked as a top three team and everything from “Big Ten Title or Bust” to “National Championship or Bust” has been bandied about. Regardless of where you personally fall on that spectrum it’s exciting to think about what next year could hold.

But we don’t have to wait until next Selection Sunday to have a stress induced heart attack because, never fear, Joe Lunardi and his updated (and entirely too early) Bracketology are here!


Fans might be a bit disappointed by not being a top seed but this is where I remind you to breathe.

First, IT IS JUNE OF 2017. No games have been played, not every roster is set but, hey, #content is king.

Second, Lunardi has MSU on the two-line behind behind the usual suspects in Arizona, Kentucky, Duke and Kansas. Considering that this is a mildly educated guess at best, it’s hard to blame him for sticking with the tried and true names. You can probably nitpick the merits of Kansas after losing Frank Mason III, Josh Jackson and Landen Lucas but, I mean, it’s Kansas.

Finally, MSU would get to play twice in Detroit in what essentially amounts to two home games. This is also known as “The Duke Treatment”. That would be pretty cool, if you ask me.
