Bracketology 2012: Florida State No. 4 Seed, Florida No. 7 Seed, USF In First Four Play-In Game

Selection Sunday for the 2012 NCAA Tournament is finally here, but before the official selection committee announces the actual bids and seeding, let's take a look at the projections for some of the local schools from Chris Dobbertean of SB Nation and Blogging The Bracket.

The Florida State Seminoles, playing in Sunday's ACC Championship Game against Duke, are currently projected to be a No. 4 seed, though a win in the ACC title game could bump them up a seed line. The Florida Gators of the SEC are currently slotted as a No. 7 seed, while the South Florida Bulls are one of the "Last Four In", scheduled to face Drexel in a First Four game.
