It's that time of year again.... Based on the nominations, number of recs, past LCPT Performance/Legacy and Overall Douchiness, I'm going to try and project the 2014 LCPT Field. Since there are 8 participants in this years field, that essentially leaves four #1 seeds and four #2 seeds. Next to the potential seeds is the projected overall seed.

-Digger squeaks in. For the first time in what seems like a long time, Digger Phelps is not among the favorites to win the tournament. Digger lost a large class from last seasons championship contender. However, his OVERALL BODY OF WORK, past transgressions and usage of his name as a bad word allowed him an at large bid. If there was a play in game. He'd be in it. Speaking of which, why isn't there a play in game?
-The year of the Non-Human/Metaphysical. The closest thing to a human amongst my projected #1 seeds is "UK Tattoo Guy" and I'm not even sure how close to human he is. As of this moment, I only have one actual single human projected in the tournament (the rest are, I think, a collection of humans... along with a newspaper and a parcel service). It looks as if this will be the year that a non-human actually takes the championship.
-Can Pastner and Gottlieb make it? Gottlieb certainly has a strong legacy as the 2011-2012 LCPT Champion. But when looking at the OVERALL BODY OF WORK I just don't know if there is enough there for the selection committee (Mike) to justify including him with the rest of these uncool "people"...
-Calipari misses out completely. John Calipari could never be clamed as "cool." However, this year just wasn't his year. No overly unruly players, no "Louisville doesn't exist," I just don't think the "Tweak" is enough to land him with this years field.
