CRAWFORD BLOG | Pomeroy: 25 of 31 national analysts pick U of L to win it all

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Generally, being an overwhelming media pick to win anything is a kiss of death.

That might not bode well for the University of Louisville. Stat guru, Pythagorean proponent and blogger extraordinaire Ken Pomeroy took the time to compile the national championship picks of national observers from CBS, ESPN, Sports Illustrated, Yahoo! and USA Today.

His finding was statistically significant. Of the 31 experts he found, 25 picked the Cardinals to cut down the nets.

When Rick Pitino was asked about his team being picked by so many people, he said he wasn't aware of it.

"I was on the elliptical, and I was watching ESPN and the sound was off, and it was one of those shows, 'Turning the Horn,'" Pitino said. "Around the Horn? All right. 'Around the Horn.' And there were four guys, and not one of them picked Louisville. . . . Not one person picked us. I don't know who is picking us. I listened to Jay Bilas last night, and he picked us. But I don't know. . . . I don't see how you can pick anybody, I really don't."
