New question NCAA tourney seed IF...Posted by Westlakeguy10 on 2/25/13 at 10:57 am
What would be our seed IF we get hot at the sec tourney avoid Florida an win it get the automatic seed? I would think 10-12. I honestly believe we can upset a 5-7 seed as long as its not say a butler or unc type team who are likely to be seeded around there. What y'all think besides saying its impossible
And yea Florida has been raping almost everyone on there schedule especially sec teams so yea I'm scared to play , unless they are unmotivated because they already have the number seed locked up which they could possibly know by the semis depending on how the other tournament shape up. Big ten tournament will be fun to watch as well as the A10 tourney best two conferences this year easily. Feels funny to say but big12 , acc, and big east are all down compared to years past even what little contenders PAC 10 usually has they don't have anyone head an shoulders above the others

quote: Well unc is almost in the top 25 they will make semis in acc tourney so prolly 23ish wins so yea prolly a 5-7 seed like I said not crazy that means they are a top 28 team in the country for a 7 seed
no. they're a 10 seed right now. they would have to win the acc tournament to even sniff a 5 seed.

Let's play "pick your brackets and look for your Cinderella teams" for a second.
If LSU were to make the run through the conference tourney, we then would have 20+ wins, a hot streak to close the season, and a legit big-time player (O'Bryant is 6'8" and has a bunch of double-doubles).
If someone from another conference had that resume (say it was Cal, or Wisconsin, or Texas), you'd be thinking 8-9 seed, and damn dangerous 2nd round opponent. FWIW, I don't know any of those team's records or whether they're any good. My point is, if you put another school's jerseys on the current LSU team and they finish out strong like the OP suggests, that's where I would expect to see them.
