How accurate with Joe Lunardi during his last prediction. Interested in his 1 seeds and last in... Does any have a final tally.

I'm not a Lunardi fan, but I give him credit this year.
He went 68 for 68, nailed all 1- and 2-seeds.
Christopher Walsh covers Alabama football for BamaOnline, 247Sports, and is the author of 18 books.
Maybe he paid the selection committee? (vbg)
Lunardi is the bagman, I guess that solves one mystery
Probably his best bracket year yet.
My beef with him was the constant updates that were ridiculous. He did rapid updates to appease ESPN and they weren't accurate usually.
Think he was 64-66 last year.

I think the committee follows what lunardi says. These guys are far too busy to do the research it would take to be as informed as they need to be. Lunardi is being paid to do that research. So I think they take into account what he says.
I looked it up the other day (before I wrote what was going to be an extremely sarcastic response to a thread where the OP & several other posters were hanging on every word he said, as if it was gospel) & was shocked to find out that in the last either 2 or 3 years he'd missed all of ONE projected team.
So with him going 68/68 again this year, I'd say he's fairly accurate. LOL.
Lunardi does the same things the major political polls do. They manipulate the results during the season to support the objectives of the organization paying for their service and then try to get the last one right to maintain their credibility. Rinse and repeat.
