2011 NCAA Tournament Bracketology: Georgia Projected As Eleven Seed

SB Nation's Chris Dobbertean has posted his latest NCAA Tournament projection and Georgia remains among the eleven seeds on the S-curve. Dobbertean has the Bulldogs avoiding the play-in games and is currently listed among the next four in the tournament. That equals out to about an eleven seed. Georgia will need to avoid an upset at home against LSU tomorrow and would do itself well with a road win over Alabama in the season finale on Saturday. 

Currently Georgia is one of five SEC teams projected to be in the Tournament field. Dobbertean lists Florida as a three seed, Kentucky and Vanderbilt as five seeds, and Tennessee as a ten seed. Alabama has clinched the SEC West but remains on the outside looking in while landing on Dobbertean's first eight out list. 

On the ACC side of things, Dobbertean projects four teams going to the big dance. Duke is currently a likely two seed with a chance to move up. North Carolina is a four seed, Florida State is a seven, and Virginia Tech is a ten seed by virtue of their upset of Duke over the weekend. Boston College slips out of the tournament projection. 

T Kyle King from Dawg Sports doesn't agree with Georgia's placement as an eleven seed pointing out that Georgia doesn't have a bad loss on its resume.

Meanwhile, the Bulldogs have beaten the fifth-seeded Kentucky Wildcats, the tenth-seeded Tennessee Volunteers, and the twelfth-seededColorado Buffaloes and UAB Blazers. Following tomorrow night’s game against the LSU Tigers, the Classic City Canines will close out the regular season against the Alabama Crimson Tide, who presently are listed among the first four out of the field of 68. In short, Georgia can do little at this point to bolster its tournament resume, but, given the caliber of the opposition to which the Bulldogs have lost, I question whether an eleven seed is a fair measure of the Athenians’ quality as a club.
