Fab Melo's ineligibility changes the complexion of the dance:

With the announcement that Fab Melo is ineligible for the tourney, everyone is scurrying to adjust brackets. There's not much I can do with the statistically based models. But I'm going to change my Gut picks and, of course, I'm adjusting my Keeper bracket already.

Will this not force Syracuse out of their standard 2- 3 zone defense???

I think they played it when Melo was out earlier...and suffered their only loss. They're still a good team, but I was already shaky on them. Rough year all around for the program.

Are you going to post which teams meet the criteria for potential upset and victims?

I really doubt it, they did not come out of it earlier this year without Fab and I doubt they would make that dramatic of a change right before the tournament

I watched Cincinnati destroy the Orange with 3s...coming out of their patented zone may help their effort if they can adjust

Curious Pete, is there any way you could calculate Syracuse's Pythag only for the games when Melo was out earlier this year to compare to their overall Pythag?
