Want to hear something crazy? Without recruiting being finished for the 2013-14 season ... without a complete list of who is going pro and who isn't ... without TEAMS HAVING EVEN TOUCHED A BASKETBALL AS A GROUP ...

There is a "bracketology" out for the 2014 NCAA men's hoops tournament already.

Yes, ESPN's Joe Lunardi already has it all figured out. Seven Big Ten teams will make the NCAA field, but the Gophers aren't one of them -- but they are, for the moment, among the "first four out."

The Gophers are on the bubble 11 months before the tournament starts.

And bracketology 11 months early is on the bubble of sanity.

H/T: Gopher Hole.
