Bracketology 2011: Georgia And Virginia Tech Have Something To Prove In Conference Tournaments

SB Nation's Chris Dobbertean is back with his latest NCAA Tournament Bracket Projection. Georgia is projected as an eleven seed in the west regional and the Bulldogs projected opponent in the first round is sixth seeded Cincinnati. The Bulldogs can't afford an early exit in this week's SEC Tournament in Atlanta. Georgia's potential second round match-up with Alabama will have huge tournament implications considering that the Crimson Tide is among Dobbertean's first four teams out of the tournament. Could Georgia afford to lose to Alabama twice and still get into the tournament? Before the Bulldogs can allow themselves to worry about Alabama they must first take care of Auburn who took them into overtime in the teams only meeting this season in Athens.

Virginia Tech finds itself projected into one of the at-large play in games against Michigan State. Like the Bulldogs, the Hokies can not afford a slip up in the opening round of this week's ACC Tournament against Georgia Tech. Florida State awaits Virginia Tech if they get by the Yellow Jackets and a victory there could perhaps take the Hokies completely out of the play in game scenario.
