NBC predicts the NCAA Tournament field and we’ll take it

NBC Sports’ preseason NCAA Tournament projection has the Cats as a one seed in Louisville, and folks, we’ll take it.

As long as Kentucky gets to play in the KFC Yum! Center I don’t care who they meet in the Sweet 16 or Elite Elight, but NBC’s Dave Ommen would have UK playing Kansas State (4)/Florida State (5). I would be all about revenge against Bruce Weber. A potential Elite Eight game would come against North Carolina (2)/Michigan State (3).

UNC in the Elite Eight would be difficult, but the road there wouldn’t be too tough, so you’d have to take it. Of course it’s a completely ludicrous and UK still has 32 games (and one exhibition) to go until Selection Sunday, but it’s still fun to think about.

I know we’re all focused on Saturday’s big game, and rightfully so, but Duke on Tuesday is going to be one of Calipari’s wildest regular season games. Basketball season is approaching quickly

Ommen’s other one seeds: Kansas, Gonzaga, Duke

Two seeds: UNC, UVA, Nevada, Tennessee

    I hate the overhype for the bball team every year. It never helps. Besides 2012 and 2015 every year they have been overhyped and underachieved. This team needs to shoot to have any shot

      All you spew is negative pessimistic comments. Why are you still trolling and pretending to be a UK fan???
