Kentucky a 5-seed in the latest Bracketology

If the NCAA Tournament started today, what would Kentucky’s seed be? According to Joe Lunardi, Kentucky would be a 5-seed in the South Region, playing its opening round games in Denver:

The South Regional is in Louisville, so I have no problem with this projection.

CBS Sports’ Jerry Palm also has the Cats in the South Regional, but as a 6-seed, playing their opening games in Providence (I’m not sure why Lunardi has Denver as a South site and Palm Spokane):

    I think it may be possible to improve to a 3 or 4 seed, but I’ll take it.

    Well, considering Spokane’s crime rate is higher for both violent and property crime than in 98% of communities in the U.S, I’m going with Denver…

    Personally, I’d rather be a 6 than a 5. If you can’t get to the top 3 lines, then I’d rather be a 6, or 7. Why? You avoid the 1 seed early in the tournament. Sure, you’d have the 2 seed to contend with, but the odds are better, obviously. Especially this year. Could end up being one of the wildest, most unpredictable tournaments we’ve seen in years.

    Of course, if we’re projected to be a 6, we’ll likely be an 8 and have the 1 seed in the second round.

    To answer your question, Mrs T., the first and second round sites have nothing to do with the locations for the Sweet 16 and Elite 8.

    I’d prefer Providence over Denver over Spokane.

      Like he said the first and second round sites don’t have an effect on what region you play in. Also, in the CBS we are projected in Providence not Spokane.

    When do they release NIT bracketology? That’s where this team is headed

      Wrong board. It’s spelled http://www.cardchronicle.com.

      Any news on the hooker violations?

      or the FBI investigation?
      or the State Auditor’s audit?
      or the complaints that the school president is racist?

    I’m sure Lunardi is correct about Duke being in Villanova’s region, but I’m sure that game would be played somewhere in North Carolina

    But when we deserve a 5/4 seed, we get an 8 seed.
