Bracketology 2012: Florida State Drops To No. 5 Seed

The Major Conference tournaments are still underway, but the projected brackets are still going through some very interesting, if not unexplainable, permutations. SB Nation just came out with the latest edition of their 2012 Bracketology, and it saw one local team drop a seed for seemingly little reason at all.

Florida State was a No. 4 seed as recent as yesterday, and despite not playing another game, they've dropped to a No. 5. The teams that earned No. 4 seeds in this bracket - Wisconsin, Baylor, UNLV and Temple - haven't had a chance to impress in their Conference tournaments either. Maybe they'll get a win in the ACC tournament and get back up to that No. 4 seed, or higher.

Here is the complete bracketology.
