Projections Primer: Making The CaseAnalysis
The postseason picture is always changing, and with our latest projections coming Wednesday afternoon, it’s a great time to take an inside look at how last week’s national seeds fared, while also dissecting each team’s situation and looking at which direction they’re trending.
In addition to analysis on each top eight national seed, we also take an in-depth look at teams trending the right or wrong direction from an at-large bid standpoint.
Let’s get you primed for the latest projections.
Record/RPI: 38-11, 1
RPI Metrics: 1 SOS, 43 NSOS — 12-5 vs. Top 25, 21-8 vs. Top 50, 29-11 vs. Top 100
Overview: What a resume the Gators have assembled so far this season. Though they have 11 losses, all of them have come against RPI Top 100 clubs. Additionally, Florida, along with Arkansas, have the most wins vs. RPI Top 25 clubs by a solid margin. The Gators hit the road over the weekend and took a series from Texas A&M, which has an RPI of 15. It’s status quo for Kevin O’Sullivan’s crew. They’ve pretty much locked up the top national seed, which is astonishing this early in the game.
