Bracketology: Indiana Isn’t Very Good

What do you call a team that beat Kansas and North Carolina in the early going, but now has 3 consecutive losses, as well as strength of schedule and RPI that are well into the 100s?  Out of the tournament.  You could also call them Indiana.  The Hoosiers just don’t look legit at all, and they are one of many teams who have made major moves, for better or worse, over the past few days.

With that, let’s get right to the projection.
