Remembering that most of the bracketologists (and the Bracket Matrix composite) have us as a 9 or 10 seed.
NET: 19th (which would correspond to a 5 seed)
KPI: 16th (4 seed)
Torvik: 20th (again a 5)
BPI: 14th (4)
SOR: 36th (9 seed)
Kenpom: 16th (4).
Massey composite: 21st (6 seed)
Suffice it to say the metrics like us a lot more than the bracketologists do (our highest seeding in any of the 92 brackets in today’s Matrix are three 6s, counterbalanced by several 11s).
Also, just for fun, here’s what the Matrix says about SEC teams:
Bama 1 seed. All 92 brackets had them as a 1
Tennessee 3 seed. Still a bunch of 2s, but a lot of those weren’t updated after Squid blew them out.
Auburn and Misery are 8s
We’re the top 9, so ranked 33rd if you want to go by that, but #32 Misery has a pretty good cushion on us (8.27 average to 9.05)
A&M 10 seed
Kentucky and Moo U are 11s
No other SEC teams are listed on any bracket
