Kentucky is a 6 seed in CBSSports.com’s latest Bracketology

ANDREW

WHO IS READY FOR A TRIP TO ORLANDO????  That’s where CBSSports.com’s Jerry Palm has Kentucky playing its first game in the 2014 NCAA Tournament. In Palm’s latest Bracketology, he projects the Cats as a 6 seed in the South with a second round game against Dayton in Orlando. A win there puts UK against the (3) Iowa/(11) Georgia State winner (Ryan Harrow!) with Wichita State and San Diego State as the region’s top two seeds.

Set. That. Run. Up.

Start the tournament now. We want this bracket.

    A 6 right now is about right for this team at this point. They could possibly move up a couple with a sweep of the rest of SEC. That and a SEC tournament championship may even move them to a 3. Of course that all depends on how the top teams do rest of the year and a injury here, a series of poor loses there and the Cats could make a 2. Still early but I agree with this as of now.

      There must be some mistake. Lunardi already posted our bracket, and the Thompson girl published it for us. We were playing Steve Massiello’s boys somewhere up north!
      I don’t understand!
      Some of you people are so gullible.

      Tough to pick pre-season favorites isn’t it?

    Puke all the way out in San Diego! That would be nice, but old rat face would pull some strings to get them close to home.

    Wow seriously start the tournament now. That is about as favorable a bracket as you could ask for.

    I still think a 6 is low even for right now. Having said that I love love love this bracket.

    I expect Iowa and UK to swap places by the end of the year

    A 6 seed is 2 spots too low for this team, even for right now. Still a top 15 team, should at worst be a 4 seed. Bracket Project tends to agree. http://www.bracketmatrix.com/ That being said I’ll take that bracket with a 6 seed.

    I don’t know why Jerry Palm is so adamant about giving us such low seeding. We’re probably more like a 4 seed right now. Of course, knowing the NCAA and their blatantly biased behavior, nothing would surprise me. I sure would love that bracket though.

      I’d LOVE to hear an argument that the NCAA is biased AGAINST Kentucky in the brackets. That would be entertaining.

      What has Kentucky done for anyone to believe they could beat Iowa, Cincinnati or San Diego State?

    Who cares about the number next to the name of the teams? If those are the teams in our bracket, I would lock it in quicker than Bobby P could put on a neck brace and fake a motorcycle wreck story.

      I would have gone with faster than Ricky P can finish in a restaurant.

    Ridiculous– no way this team is getting anything lower than a 4 unless we start dropping games that we shouldn’t. If we do that- we dont deserve it anyways. 6 seed– let’s see that would be for teams ranked 24-27…like I said- DUMB

      And Harry Palm’s brother also.

    Wichita State will be last year’s Gonzaga. No (or very few) quality wins, weak conference, early tournament exit.

      You’re right on the money. WSU won’t face a single ranked opponent until March, needed an OT to beat Missouri State, and their SOS is ~80 while UK is currently 15. They’re high on the early upset alert.

    10 – To be a #6 seed is teams rank like #21 to #24 a six seed is way off if your in the top 15 your no worst than a four seed.

    I’ve picked them as a 5 or 6 also, but at the end of the season. Because I fully expect to lose at least 2 more games.

    Someone help me. I missed seeing IU . Which bracket are they in?

    How is it possible for North Carolina to even be in field. Although they have a couple of good wins they have some even worse loses and are 11-7 right now.

    Sick and tired of seeing Cal under coach the team year after year. We must hold the record for driving preseason Top Five teams right into the dirt.

      You mean once? I think once might not be the record.

    If Cal doesn’t figure out how to start games without being down by double digits in first five minutes then it will not matter where we are seeded. Truly remarkable to be down to BELMONT………………….!!!!

    how reliable is jerry palm…there is NO way on god’s earth that come selection sunday one region is gonna have michigan state florida and kansas as the top 3 seeds while another region has wichita state sd state and iowa as top 3 seeds…that’s just plain CRAZY!!!! na gonna happen…heck another region has arizona nova iowa state vs cuse wisconsin okla state…it will all change but cant see that happening in final ncaa bracket…

    From the best recruiting class in history, to potentially undefeated, to the nation’s #1 team, to odds on favorite to win the tournament, to “I’ve got four months to get this thing right”, to top 5, to top 10, to 0-3 against top teams, to a projected 6 seed. The next thing you’ll read here is UK fans saying, “We’re the team no one wants to play in March!!!”

      You forgot about “to the NIT again”

    The fact N.C., Baylor and Ark. each have only one win in their conferences can’t be helping UK’s seeding.

    shot yeah we’ll take that bracket. even as number 6 seed we can beat anyone in that bracket. no one in that bracket has beaten anyone of consequence. let’s play now

    Look at teams like Ohio St, Iowa St and Wisconsin losing multiple games in a row, Nova getting blown out at home last night. The CATS only have 4 losses on the year, OSU has lost their last 4 in a row and we can expect 2 seeds having 4-8 losses this year. And look at SOS and UK’s is tougher than a lot of these teams so if the CATS take care of business we’ll be fine.
    A side note: With the 88-1 special on TV several times and the stories of how Wooden cheated with the paying of players during his run (this is not in the special but in books written by several players) why wouldn’t the NCAA step up and handle this as they would if it had been Rupp, I guess UCLA was the DUKE, UNC and UCONN of yesteryear.
