    Bracketology - Big Dance Predictions - Thread

    Hey all -- since I hunger for this stuff....and I can't always locate it in other threads....I was hoping to have a thread with predictions from the "experts" at different sites. I know we have a Polls/rankings thread..... but since we are getting closer to Dancing....I'd like to have updated predictions all in one place.

    Buffalo would not be an easy win at all.

    I'm more worried about Sister Jean in the second round.

    I think we finish 5-3 and end up 20-11 and are a #9 seed. TBH, I think every game we have is winnable but this team on the road is so unpredictable.

    That's the 4-5th projection I've seen with us up against Buffalo. Not sure why.....

    If we make it to 4th in conference at the end -- we'd end up a 7-8 seed...

    Iíll take anything, but I would rather be a 10 seed than an 8 or 9. I donít want any part of taking the chance at getting matched up in Dukeís region for a second round game.

    Our best year ever was as an 8 seed.

    Out Sweet 16 years:

    1976, 1982, 1985, 1986, 1987*, 1990, 1991, 2004

    1982 - 4 Seed
    1985 - 7 Seed
    1986 - 5 Seed
    1987 - 2 Seed
    1990 - 7 Seed
    1991 - 4 Seed
    2004 - 8 Seed (Elite 8)

    Our best trips have come when we were out west OR in the midwest.....

    You should be more positive. We win out and win the SEC Tournament, we are a 4 or 5 seed.

    Iím well aware of our basketball history lol. I would still rather not have to face Duke in the second round. We were fortunate that we matched up well with Stanford and Syracuse that year. We donít match up well with Duke at all. Thatís what Iím saying. I think we match up fine with any of the projected 2 seeds. I just donít think we do with Duke or Gonzaga. Thatís why I said give me 7/10 or even 11 before 8/9.

    Or since weíre already in really good shape to make it as long as we donít collapse, we can actually work on improving our seed to higher than the 8 range. Team is improving man and I think we can start looking at how far we can go depending on how much more we improve until then. Weíll find out more tonight like others have said

    I'd much prefer to be an 8 than a 10 or 11.......I realize how the bracket falls, but at some point you have to play a 1 seed.....might as well take one out early, when they may be overconfident. Hitting them later in the tournament when they are hitting their stride stinks. PLUS -- if you take out the 1 -- you get a 4 or 5 next..... much better than being a 10 then hitting a 2 seed, and a 3 seed on the way out....
