Georgia Bulldogs Projected as 11 Seed in NCAA Basketball Tournament

We are six days from Selection Sunday, and Chris Dobbertean has brought us his latest NCAA Tournament bracket projection, in which the Georgia Bulldogs have crept up to the eleven line. This seems fair, despite the Fox Hounds’ road loss this weekend against the Alabama Crimson Tide, in light of the caliber of the opposition the Red and Black have faced.

Nine of the Athenians’ ten setbacks came at the hands of the No. 1-seeded Notre Dame Fighting Irish, the No. 2-seeded Florida Gators, the No. 4-seeded Kentucky Wildcats, the No. 5-seeded Xavier Musketeers, the No. 6-seeded Vanderbilt Commodores, the No. 7-seeded Temple Owls, and the No. 9-seeded Tennessee Volunteers, with the tenth loss coming at division champion and bubble team Alabama.

Chris sees the Bulldogs opening the tourney in the Charlotte Pod of the Southwest Region against the sixth-seeded Georgetown Hoyas in a logo battle that will confuse the color-blind. The winner of that matchup would be in line for a potential showdown with the third-seeded North Carolina Tar Heels in the next round, so we finally may get a shot at settling the score concerning which is, in fact, the oldest state-chartered university in the land.
