Trio of Bracketologists Have Hokies Making the NCAA Tournament

New, 3 comments

Three of the four brackets worth watching include Virginia Tech this week.

First and foremost, SB Nation's own Chris Dobbertean of Blogging the Bracket has Virginia Tech as a No. 9 seed in the East, traveling to Providence to meet Missouri in the first round. Dobber doesn't have the Hokies listed in his "Last Four In" after they were his very last team in the field last week.

The most interesting first-round scenario comes from Patrick Stevens' D1SCOUSE blog. He puts Tech as a No. 10 seed against in-state rival Richmond in the Midwest Region in Buffalo.

The Hokies make their debut in the bracket of the original bracket nerd, Joe Lunardi, one week after coming in at No. 66 on his "S-curve". Lundardi has Tech as a No. 11 seed facing Butler in New Orleans in the South Region.

The only bracket the Hokies don't appear on this week is the one projected by Jerry Palm of CollegeRPI.com. Boo that man!

While my own bracketology skills have deteriorated over the years, I think the Hokies would be in the field if the season ended today. However, there's still a lot of work to be done between now and Selection Sunday. With Tech's rough remaining schedule it's probably 50-50 that it will go dancing this year.
