Lunardi has Wichita State as an 8 seed firmly in the field, and Palm has them as the last team on the first four out list. That’s a huge difference.

I lean towards Joe Lunardi when it comes to knowing what the committee will do, he’s the best in the business. But, I don’t see any way to justify Witchita State as an 8 seed. I could see them as a 10 or 11 seed. They have a 40 RPI, with a 149 SOS, and only 2 top 100 wins. I thought the committee was suppose to be rewarding teams for playing tougher schedules. If they do give Wichita State an 8 seed, that would be the exact opposite of what they’ve been saying. All of the high major teams on the bubble could play that schedule Wichita State has and end up with the same record or better.
