Bracketology 2012: Savannah State, Georgia's Only March Madness Hope

Let's face it, Georgia Bulldogs and Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets fans: your teams are not going to the NCAA Tournament. Both are 11 seeds in their respective conference tournaments, and those conference tournaments are topped by maybe the two best teams in the country, the Kentucky Wildcats and North Carolina Tar Heels. Check the latest bracketology if you don't believe me.

With the Georgia Southern Eagles and Georgia St. Panthers reaching only the quarterfinal rounds of their tournaments and the Kennesaw St. Owls ... WE'RE NOT GONNA TALK ABOUT THAT RIGHT NOW ... only one Peach State team has a real chance to reach March Madness.

And a pretty good chance, too, as the Savannah St. Tigers hold the No. 1 seed in the MEAC. Chris Dobbertean projects them to win the MEAC and to contend with a first-round, play-in thing against UT-Arlington, but still. Win the league and the Tigers are in, and Georgia's not completely unrepresented.

Pretty great stuff for a program that was credited with only six wins over the last two years of Ed Daniels' tenure and Horace Broadnax's first season and is in its first year of Division I conference play. Broadnax, who won his third MEAC Coach of the Year award this season, has led the Tigers to their only two winning Division I seasons ever and a regular season title in their first year of MEAC contention.

Ken Pomeroy's formula ranks Savannah State No. 164 in the country, but finds their defense the 46th best in the land.

The 2012 MEAC Tournament begins on Tuesday.
