Bracketology Predictions: Alabama, Georgia Stuck On The SEC Bubble

Other than the Georgia Bulldogs and Alabama Crimson Tide, the SEC's representation in the 2011 NCAA Tournament is pretty cut-and-dry. The Florida Gators, Kentucky Wildcats, and Vanderbilt Commodores are expected to receive lower-half seeds during the NCAA Tournament selection show at 6 pm ET on CBS. The Tennessee Volunteers should make it in as a first-round underdog, but they're all but certain to make it in.

And then there's the Dawgs, perhaps the bubbliest team on the entire map despite what looks to me like a solid March Madness resume, especially compared to other iffy teams like Colorado and USC, and Bama, a team that's twice beaten the Dawgs. But here's what the pros think about the SEC's biggest mysteries as of this writing:

SB Nation: Chris Dobbertean has UGA in as the NCAA Tournament field's very last team, with Bama just missing out.

Bracketology 101: Both the Bulldogs and Tide are in, with Alabama even avoiding the play-in round.

ESPN: Joe Lunardi thinks both SEC bubble teams narrowly fail to make it in.

CBS Sports: Jerry Palm says yes to Georgia, giving them a comfortable 11 seed, and no to Alabama.
