It may be early in the season, but it’s never too early to start predicting the bracket for March’s annual NCAA Tournament. Jerry Palm of CBS Sports feels the same way as he recently released his first Bracketology of the year. And the news for Kentucky is awfully sour. In the initial bracket, Palm has Kentucky as a 10 seed in the East region, playing San Diego State in the
first second round. Duke and Cincinnati are the #1 and #2 teams in the region.
Adding fuel to today’s already scorching fire, Louisville is the 2 seed in the Midwest region, playing their initial games in Lexington. It feels silly talking about something that will assuredly look different by season’s end, but maybe a win today means even more to Kentucky than originally thought. The Wildcats don’t exactly play a murderers row in conference, so a victory today could go a long way in boosting the national perception of the team.
