Right now, Xavier is in 143 of 150 brackets: http://www.bracketmatrix.com/

Lunardi is one that has us out. But he frequently misses a team or two in his bracket. It is almost as if he does it on purpose so there is some controversy to talk about on ESPN while we wait for games to start. :)
I don't know how the bracketologists are rated, but he is not the one I'd prefer who is predicting X being left out of the field.

Lunardi usually ranks middle of the pack when it comes to bracketologists. His beef this year is that teams with losing conference records shouldn’t get in. Which is funny because he is ok with Marquette. The bracket matrix has been pretty good over the last few years, right now X seems to be safe. A win tonight would keep them firmly on the right side of the bubble. Lose, all bets are off.

And when the ACC was the best conference in the RPI conference rankings, he was fine with ACC schools with losing records getting in because of "no bad losses".

Well... we no longer control our own fate.

The worst news is that the tournament may get canceled and none of this will ever get resolved.

I think it would be cool if they still did selection Sunday though, even without a tournament. It would be even cooler if they did some sort of early season tournament next autumn with the top 8 or 16 seeds.
