ESPN Bracketology moved Kentucky out west

It didn’t take long for ESPN to update its Bracketology to reflect Kentucky’s exit from the SEC Tournament. In its new update released shortly after the game, Kentucky is projected as a No. 2 seed in the West Region with Gonzaga. The Road To Number 9 would start with the Wildcats of Abilene Christian in Jacksonville in the first round, with red hot Wofford likely waiting in the second. Florida State is the region’s No. 3 seed.

      Two dangerous teams in this bracket are Florida State and Iowa State. Iowa State just handled kansas with ease.

    Are you serious? This team will not make it past Wofford and definitely get blown out by Florida State. I see a #3 seed more than a 2 seed. No Final Fours 4 yrs in a row.

      Except great teams do. Golden State lost to the worst team in the NBA by 30. Golden State has no chance to win, right? The only thing to fear is late game coaching from Cal in a close game.

      We let off the gas when we got control today. It’s a lesson learned the hard way that you can’t let up no matter the lead and time of game.. this team is good enough to win it all !!!

    Ha ha ha, NCAA is corrupt (along with their referees); but, they’re not stupid. UK, Iowa State, Virginia Tech, Ohio State, Florida State all out west; no way they’ll pi$$ away that much cash.



    • WatchutalkinboutWillis
      9:49 pm March 16, 2019 Permalink

      I would be surprised 0% if I found out the refs or one…today were paid. Especially after the two called two different, opposite calls on the same play.

    There’s no way that happens because that is too good of a bracket lol

    I’d love this bracket! Our best team since AD’s group, and we play good D when PJ Isn’t posing too much. He and Keldon need to chill a bit on that.

      KAT’s team? just because they didn’t win it all doesn’t mean they were bad, we would’ve beat tf out of duke but the refs screwed us like always

    I really, really want that bracket…instead we will be a 4 seed with Va as the 1, Duke as the Two and UT as the three…

    Fl St may have taller dudes in the paint, put slow..I see no easier path than this,ATM, but we’ll get a 3 in the east or midwest.

  15. SanDiegoCats

    They won’t give us this but weird that Lunardi can mix things up so much based on a close loss to a good team.



    • crazycatfan65
      2:16 pm March 17, 2019 Permalink

      Especially since the Zags lost to an unranked team in their conference tourny, both Virginia and North Carolina lost in the ACC tourny but yet they all stay on the so called 1 line while UK gets beat by a top 10 team and drops down to the 2 line. What is wrong with that picture?



  16. henderblue
    9:07 pm March 16, 2019 Permalink

    Cal said if we were the top 2 seed we should get the weakest 1. Which would be Gonzaga. So I guess Lunardi thinks the selection committee is going to do what Cal says. Lol. We’ll get the 2 seed in the south, which is fine by me. Or more likely the 2 seed wherever Carolina is. Which I wouldn’t like..



  17. Urincatland

    There’s no way we go out west. Not a one. The NCAA knows where the money is

    If this holds up hell yeah



  20. wyatts1
    9:25 pm March 16, 2019 Permalink

    So the ACC gets 3 teams on the #1 line, and the last #1 spot goes to Gonzaga?? This is absolutely crazy. I wonder if Florida State beats duke how or if the committee will try to justify keeping them on the #1 line?



    • wyatts1
      9:28 pm March 16, 2019 Permalink

      Duke will be a early exit this year, you watch and see. They will be ok the first weekend but will lose in the sweet 16 or the elite 8. I just wish we was in their bracket so we could get some revenge and show the country that we are the true #1, and the committee are a bunch or idiots



  21. ballplayerstu

    Don’t understand NC being guaranteed a 1, beat duke twice without Zion. Tennessee deserves it more to me than them.

    I would take that bracket in a heart beat… People whining about having to possibly face red-hot teams like Iowa St and Florida St… Umm you gotta beat somebody to make a Final four.
    . They don’t offer you up a path of four 16 seeds to a final four…. Besides if they did that would be Duke’s bracket

    JOE LUNARDI HAS NO FRIGGIN CLUE WHAT THE COMMITTEE WILL DO!!!



  31. bigbluebanana
    10:49 am March 17, 2019 Permalink

    I’d take this bracket all day long. Punishment would of course be going out west, but look at the reward of who we get to play. Gonzaga would have trouble with Syracuse in game 2. FSU has size, but we can counter that. Honestly this is great, too bad espn is rarely accurate. Everybody knows we are going in dook’s bracket.

    Come on Drew, Wofford would not get past Utah State if this were the bracket.
