Where Kentucky stands in the latest Bracketology

With less than two months left in the regular season, Kentucky is projected to be a four-seed in the NCAA Tournament. Here’s a roundup of the latest Bracketology from ESPN, CBS Sports, and Shelby Mast of Bracket Wag.

ESPN’s Joe Lunardi

A Sweet 16 game vs. Duke? No thanks.

CBS Sports’ Jerry Palm

Jerry Palm’s bracket is much more my speed, especially since it has Kentucky in the South Region, which will take place in Louisville.

Bracket Wag’s Shelby Mast

Ask me after January 26 how I feel about this one.

Obviously, with a gauntlet of a schedule ahead, Kentucky is in control of its own destiny when it comes to seeding. Being in Louisville for the regional sure would be nice. #BeatTennessee

    They are not going to send Duke and UK out west…Lunardi is such a goofball.
    That Jerry Palm South region would be a gift.

    It is way too early but I also think the Cats could play their way into a higher seed especially in the next few games. Lots of opportunity to improve seeding.

      I definitely think the cats will be higher than a 4 seed. Let’s ball!!

    Anybody that thinks they will put Duke out west is smokin’ something. They’ll play every game within 200 miles from Raleigh!

    No shot Duke and Kansas are in the same region. No need to pay these mock brackets. They are never close. Especially the ones made on JANUARY 16TH

    Duke could lose next 5 and still play opening weekend in North California. Putting duke in West bracket shows the entire prediction can be overlooked

      What bracket you are in has no affect on where you play opening weekend. You could have a top West seed and a top Midwest seed open in Raleigh. Opening weekend they try to keep higher deeds near home. West Bracket would only affect where they play from Sweet 16 on.

      UK could be a 4 in the West and open in Hartford or Columbus the first weekend.

      You missed the point. Duke will play in Columbia SC this year no matter their seed. If Duke is a 4seed they will be in Columbia, if duke is a 1 seed, they will be in Columbia. If UK is a 1 we will be in Louisville, if they are a 4 we will be in Tulsa

      However seeding goes, Duke and UNC will be able to Uber to their first opening round games

      Doesn’t even matter right now. It’ll change drastically before the actual tournament. IMO UK ends up a 2 or 3 see after they win the SEC tourney. Win out and they could end up being a 1?

    I like how she thinks we would play dUKe in sweet 16. We could easily lose to Ga State in these stupid bracket looks. They did beat a team we could not beat. None of it matters as it will change 50 times by end of month and 500 times by March

    I’ll take the first and last one. No thank you to that 2nd one.

    It wasn’t until North Carolina made same sex bathrooms illegal, that Duke had to leave the state for opening weekend.

    It really doesn’t matter if Kentucky can’t secure a 2-seed (at least). There are 7-8 legitimate contenders this season and if you’re a 3 through 5-seed, you’re going to have to play a hell of a team in the Sweet 16. It may be similar to the Brandon Knight team that had to beat two contenders just to get to the FF, and then ran out of steam. CATS

    Don’t look at Duke & get all panicked … coach k has a knack for framing out of the tourney in the first two games . Just sayin

    Last years tourney was a big reminder of how seeds & seeding don’t matter . Just really doesn’t matter . Gonna have to have some grit , gonna have to play a few notches higher than the level we’re on now – it will be there when march rolls around .

    The people who do this for a living (Lunardi and Palm specifically) are good at what they do, and I’m sure it’s tedious work. However, I will never get why people are so fascinated with a bracket that doesn’t and never will exist.
