BRACKETOLOGY: Kentucky still projected to be a three-seed

In two weeks, we’ll be poring over the actual NCAA Tournament bracket. Until then, Bracketology will have to do.

Joe Lunardi’s latest projections have Kentucky as the three-seed in the West Region, playing opening round games in St. Louis. Gonzaga is the one-seed, Florida State the two-seed.

Lunardi updates his seed list daily, and as of last night, Kentucky is his top three-seed, meaning a two-seed could be within reach if everything goes our way. His current two seeds are Florida State (West), Dayton (East), Maryland (South), and Seton Hall (Midwest). The ones are Gonzaga (West), San Diego State (East), Baylor (South), and Kansas (Midwest).

Meanwhile, over at, Shelby Mast also has Kentucky as a three-seed in the West Region, but playing its opening round games in Cleveland.

Kentucky is the lowest three-seed in Mast’s projections behind Florida State, Duke, and Villanova. His twos are Dayton, Seton Hall, Maryland, and Creighton, and ones Kansas, Baylor, Gonzaga, and San Diego State.

Selection Sunday can’t come soon enough.

    Begs the question: if we are Lunardi’s top 3 seed, why is he proecting us to be shipped out West? Only one reason: He, believes there will be a Duke bias. We should be in the MW, Louisville in their choice of the South or East, then Duke and Villanova should be headed West.

    He has Duke as the #3 seed in the east with #1 San Diego St & #2 Dayton. That is a sweet draw. I cant wait for the actual real brackets to come out so we can stop looking at these stupid hypotheticals.

    No logical reason that Maryland or Seton Hall or Creighton should be seeded higher than us-

    How can Creighton with 7 losses in a crap league be seeded higher than U.K.- especially after that horrid loss to St Johns yesterday

      Shows you how little people know. 2 in one projection. 4 seed in another. That’s a big discrepancy.

    Even though we’re the top 3 seed it’ll be tough for us to move up because of the SEC. For the teams ahead of us to drop, it likely means the teams behind us beat them and of course they will leap frog us because they’ve done that to us all year. But if we stay the top 3 and avoid being the worst 2 in Kansas bracket then I’d rather be the 3 anyways.

    I don’t understand the BE love. 7 teams? Creighton, Villanova, and Seaton Hall I think are all pretty good, but the rest of the conference just hasn’t impressed me.

    Outside of the top 3, I don’t see any team that really beat anyone noteable. The best non-con wins for the rest of the 7 teams are Florida and Iowa. It seems like the top 3 teams lost a few games to the teams 4th through 7th in the conference and apparently that’s enough to get in the big dance.

    Seaton Hall beat Maryland, Villanova beat Kansas, and Creighton didn’t really beat any noteable non-con wins. I should note DePaul has a decent non-con win over Texas Tech…but that’s it.

    Seems like it’s an overhyped league.

    Wouldn’t it stand to reason that if the big east is such an overrated league wouldn’t it be more welcoming to have them sponging up seeds?
