BRACKETOLOGY: Kentucky falls to five seed in East region

How does a trip to Albany, NY sound?

In his latest Bracketology released this morning, ESPN’s Joe Lunardi dropped Kentucky to a five seed in the East region. In Albany, the Wildcats would take on 12-seed Yale in the first round, followed by a matchup with either four-seed Villanova or 13-seed North Texas in the Round of 32.

Should the Wildcats take home back-to-back wins to open the tournament, they would then likely take on one-seed Gonzaga in the Sweet Sixteen if the seeding holds in Spokane. Ohio State and Texas Tech, two previous Kentucky foes, also serve as the eight and nine seeds in the region, respectively.

In the Elite Eight, Kentucky could potentially see two-seed Duke or three-seed Maryland with a spot in the Final Four on the line.

Check out the entire East region below:

Outside of Gonzaga, Baylor is the No. 1 overall seed in the South, followed by Kansas in the Midwest and San Diego State in the West as the other one seeds.

For the entire bracket, take a look over at ESPN here. 

What do you guys think? Fair?

    I really can’t understand why you keep giving clicks to this ESPoN fool.

    For real. Who cares at this point. The way we play at times we may be a 8 seed….or a 2.

    Sounds about right. At very best, we are a 3. And at worst we could be a 7-8. So I’ll be satisfied & content with a 4-5 when the time comes

    These things are pointless as none of these guys are ever close on this stuff and any of our predictions are just as good. With that out of the way, for the first time in a while, I could care less where our seeding is or who we play. I know this team can beat anybody, and that we could lose to anybody. That statement is incredibly true for the entirety of college basketball this year. Parity is truly reaching across the sport. A final 4 of us, Kansas, Duke, and Gonzaga wouldn’t surprise me, but neither would one consisting of Dayton, Illinois, Colorado, and Florida State.

    This is all BS; but, it would be typical if we have to play Gonzaga in their home town. Or, maybe the arena in Sitka, AK has already been booked.

      Another example of someone whining about something without a clue. If Gonzaga is number one in the east then no matter where we play them it will be much closer to Lexington than Washington. Not sure where the East regional is this year but I know it will be closer to Lexington dumbass

      Mash the first round sites have no regard for geographic region

      Assburnfan1, the East Regional is at MSG. This is all speculation; but, if we fall to a lower seed, we may get just such a situation. Lunardi has little actual insight; however, in this scenario, how fair would it be for Ohio State or Texas Tech to have to play Gonzaga in Spokane?
      And, just FYI, I have 15 years tertiary education, so I don’t think your family names apply to me.

    and this is where I point out the fact that Joe Lunardi is ranked 55th on his skill year after year at picking brackets and is therefore not a good source for trying to figure out really anything.
