The college basketball season may be only beginning, but it's never too early for some bracketology. The preseason projections by SB Nation writer Chris Dobbertean has four Sunshine State teams making the field of 68. The Florida Gators are the highest seeded team in these projections, earning a No. 4 seed in the West Region, to play in Austin, Tx. against the winner of one of the play-in games.
The Florida St. Seminoles received a No. 6-seed in the East Region and would play against the West Virginia Mountaineers. The two other Florida teams that made it into Dobbertean's projections, the Miami Hurricanes and the South Florida Bulls, would play for the right to earn the No. 13-seed in the West Region and play the Gators in the second round.
