Which teams suffered some early Bracketology setbacks in week #2 of the 2020-21 season?
This is going to be a wild college basketball experience this season. Preparation time was limited in the offseason, teams are shutting down and starting up left and right and at this point, it’s hard to tell who is good and who is not.
To that point, some squads with big expectations, like Tennessee, have yet to play a game. Colorado State has a lot of returning talent, and I know I’m anxious to see how good they are, but they haven’t played yet, either. And just when the college basketball world was getting excited to see who the best team in the country is, Saturday’s matchup between Baylor and Gonzaga was cancelled hours before tip-off.
While there are a lot of unknowns, there are still teams you can look at based on early-season results and see that they have already damaged NCAA tournament resumes that will be hard to come back from.
While Wisconsin’s loss to Marquette on Friday night was alarming, they are not one of those teams. The Badgers will have plenty of opportunities in a loaded Big Ten to show that they are not only March Madness worthy but a team that deserves a high seed.
So, who are the biggest bracketology losers from week #2 of the 2020-21 college basketball campaign. There are several who dug themselves holes this week and put into question whether they are good enough to capture a top seed in March or even participate at all.
Here are the five biggest Bracketology losers from this past week.
