There's no doubt that the most anticipated games of this year's Tip-Off Marathon are at the State Farm Champions Classic in Atlanta. The Michigan State-Kansas/Duke-Kentucky twin bill is itself worthy of a Final Four.

There's only one problem. These two great matchups -- and many others like them -- are more sizzle than steak when it comes to Bracketology. We know that all four teams will be in the NCAA tournament, we know all four teams will be protected seeds and we know all four teams are contenders for the Final Four in April.
