Lunardi's Logic

First off, Florida State can make the Final Four. The Seminoles could also lose to St. Bonaventure, Cincinnati or Texas the first weekend. How else to characterize a team that beats North Carolina and Duke, but loses to two Ivy League teams? I'm going to split the difference and put FSU in the Sweet 16, before Ohio State knocks hte Noles out.
