NCAA Tournament 2012, SEC Teams: Kentucky, Vanderbilt Lead

The Kentucky Wildcats didn't win the SEC, but as has become recent tradition, they're being given the inside shot at the national title anyway. U mad, fans of every sport? UK was named the No. 1 overall seed and will get home region advantage in the South, where they'll start in Louisville and march toward Atlanta (easy now!).

Also joining them, among SEC teams: the Florida Gators are a 7 seed in the West (vs. the Virginia Cavaliers), the SEC champion Vanderbilt Commodores are a 5 seed in the East (vs. the Harvard Crimson ... pretty nerdy game!), and the Alabama Crimson Tide are a 9 seed in the Midwest (vs. Creighton).

That makes for four SEC teams, with the Mississippi Rebels just missing the cut.

Among pending SEC representatives, the Missouri Tigers were named a 2 seed in the West. Call it four and a half?

Head right here for a printable 2012 March Madness bracket as soon as it's fully available in just a few moments.
