FSU basketball rises again in bracketology projection, but headed for hostile ground?

The new normal.

NCAA Basketball: Florida State at Pittsburgh Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Florida State hoops kicked down the door of both the AP and Coaches Polls earlier today, going from unranked to a top-20 slot. And now the Seminoles have improved in ESPN’s most recent bracketology forecast as well.

The ’Noles are up a line, from a 5-seed to a 4-seed— but the more things change, the. more they stay the same. Last week, I wrote about how FSU being shipped to Albany, amid a bunch of other teams from then region, was reminiscent of last year’s NCAA Tournament draw. Well check out the latest prediction for Florida State.


In FSU’s Albany pod are three other (lower-seeded) teams from schools in states that border New York. And forget the 235-mile drive from Vermont— New Haven, CT (the home of Yale) is just a 149-mile drive to Albany, almost the exact same distance as South Orange, NJ, where Seton Hall is located.

Meanwhile, where is 6-seeded Florida projected? Tampa.
