Kentucky a five-seed in latest Bracketology

Believe it or not, the NCAA Tournament is less than two months away. After the win over Arkansas, Kentucky is a five-seed in Joe Lunardi’s latest projections, up from a six-seed following the loss to South Carolina.

Not that it really matters, but Lunardi has the Cats in the West Region, playing Akron in their opening round game in Spokane, Washington. The four No. 1 seeds are Baylor, Gonzaga, Kansas, and San Diego State.

Bracketology is mostly a meaningless exercise this far out, but it can show how teams can improve their tournament resumes. For instance, here are Kentucky’s remaining opponents ranked by seed:

  • (4) Auburn
  • (7) LSU
  • (9) Florida
  • (9) Texas Tech

In terms of past opponents, Michigan State is a two-seed, Louisville a three-seed, Ohio State a six-seed, and Arkansas an eight-seed. Alabama is one of the first four out.

You can see Lunardi’s full bracket here. Kentucky is also a five-seed in Jerry Palm’s projections, which were updated yesterday.

    This is all so political. No matter what Duke and Mich St would never drop below a 2 seed. This is crap!

    I think this year these so called bracketologiest are going to be off on a lot of their seed lines. This year we have seen so many top 25 teams losing to unranked teams that I think the teams good wins will factor in this year more then the bad loses.
