Selection Sunday 2011: Bracketology Predictions For Georgia In NCAA Tournament

The Georgia Bulldogs have had an interesting NCAA Tournament bracketology trajectory. Just a couple weeks ago, a win over Tennessee seemed to have the Dawgs sitting pretty, but a pair of losses to Alabama and some conference tourney surprises around the country have Georgia fans sweating Selection Sunday, which is scheduled to air at 6 pm EST (or is it ET now, or was it already?) on CBS.

What do the experts think? Let me know if you can find a consensus among these:

SB Nation: On Saturday morning Chris Dobbertean of Blogging The Bracket, SB Nation's bracketology communityhad the Dawgs ranked as the last team in, playing St. Mary's in the play-in round. Nothing had changed by Saturday evening's complete bracket projection. Mighty perilous standing, and Sunday's going to feature one long, long hour if it's accurate.

Bracketology 101: The most accurate bracketologists of three or more years experience who are still in practice as far as I can tell, B101 also has Georgia among the last four in as of Saturday night, though the Dawgs are at least not the very last here.

ESPN: Late Saturday night, Georgia showed up on Joe Lunardi's bracket as one of the first four out. Strong conference tournament runs by the Virginia Tech Hokies, Colorado Buffaloes, Penn St. Nittany Lions, and USC Trojans don't help UGA in Lunestra's eyes, as those are his last four in. Might he be overvaluing conference tournament games? That's what Athens is hoping, at least.

CBS Sports: Jerry Palm is Dawg Nation's favorite bracketologist. Saturday night, the Bulldogs were relatively comfortable as an 11 seed, taking on the Purdue Boilermakers in round one.
