UNC Basketball: CBS Sports’ early Bracketology snubs Tar Heels

On Wednesday, CBS Sports Insider Gary Parrish released his latest ‘Top 25 and 1’ preseason rankings for the 2020-21 college basketball season. In it, he gave a fairly favorable, but seemingly reasonable, top-15 ranking to the North Carolina Tar Heels. It appears as if his colleague, Jerry Palm, doesn’t share the same optimism about the Tar Heels and their revamped roster.

In Palm’s recent 2021 NCAA Tournament bracket prediction, he slotted the Tar Heels on the 7-line with the likes of Purdue, Richmond and Indiana, and directly behind teams such as Texas, Rutgers, UCLA and West Virginia.
