Kentucky a 5-seed in the Midwest in latest Bracketology

Mondays mean new Bracketology, and after a win over Missouri and an overtime loss at Kansas, Kentucky is now a five-seed in the Midwest Region in Joe Lunardi’s latest projections:


Remember, we’re just looking at seeds, not necessarily matchups, but I’d be lying if I said a potential rematch with UCLA didn’t excite me a little bit. As does a rematch with Kansas in the Midwest Regional, which will be held at the United Center in Chicago.


Meanwhile, CBS Sports’ Jerry Palm has Kentucky as a 5-seed in the East Region:

North Carolina, Indiana, West Virginia, and Louisville all in the same bracket? Oh boy.

    UK dropping in the seeding after that Kansas game is ridiculous. But good times ahead.

    Is it not ridiculous to see us having a team we’ve played already in the 1st game?

    This is not normal, yet we always have a rematch on our path on these predictors.

    And of course, we are in the Louisville and UNC bracket.

    Mrs Tyler fears rematches, I look forward to them.

    That 2nd bracket is more like a UK bracket. That one above with Iowa as the 1 seed- we would never ever have that easy of a road. Those brackets are saved for Duke!

    I just about all but guarantee- we are going to have to beat Oklahoma or UNC to reach the FF– book it.

    There is such a miniscule probability that either of these brackets and seedings will see the light of day come March. So much will change between now and then so I refuse to even acknowledge these things. Our seed number (currently a #5) is about all I look at when these projections come out. Regardless, I just look forward to playing on a neutral court and not have to deal with the kind of “home cooking” that we saw Saturday. I think our Cats will be ready to take on anybody, anytime come March. Bring it on!
