Someone smarter than me can you explain why we may not go to Atlanta? I guess its what I get for assuming?
I saw where Kellogg put KU in Atlanta and UK in St. Louis. That made no sense whatsoever.

Only thing I could see is if they wanted to stick it to us and benefit UNC by having them in Atlanta. It should not happen but I won't hold my breath for it to be announced next Sunday. IMO, we should be in the Southeast, Cuse in East, KU in midwest and UNC out west. UNC, to me, is the last #1 and therefore should go wherever is left. Also, if this is the case, I can see Duke in either the Southeast or East but I would imagine they'll be the #2 in the Southeast with us.
That's just plain dumb...so unfortunately I could see the committee doing it.
Believe it or not St. Louis is closer to Lexington than Atlanta. By about 40 miles. If somehow ku and mizzou were to falter early in their conference you're and much state were to win their conference tourney I could see us going to st. Louis Unc going to Atlanta and much state going out west. I just want to avoid Ohio state and Unc in our region.
Oh yeah. There is no such thing as a southeast or east or west or midwest region. It's called by the name of the city hosting the region.
Of the top teams, I pray we get OSU and/or Duke in our region. We will crush both.
Agree...never understood ppl being afraid of Ohio st
I don't think the Cats will fear anyone, but I'd prefer to avoid any "rematch/extra incentive" games like UNC or Ohio State... even KU from earlier this year. I know UK is better than all three on a typical day, but each one has reason to get in "Super Bowl" mode, as Cal would say.
I agree Nate. With the way the regular season is ending, it looks like the 20 yr anniversary rematch is coming to fruition. UK v Duke in Atlanta instead of Philly. How many times are we going to have to see that shot the week leading up to the Regional Finals? The "I Still Hate Laettner" shirts will take over the Georgia Dome.
PEOPLE, I FEAR NO TEAM LETS PLAY THEM ALL AND THEN NO OTHER TEAM NOR FANS CAN SAY UK HAD A EASY PATH TO NO #8
The regions are back to being called the South, Midwest, East, and West. They did away with calling it the city name of the region hosting
To avoid tornadoes?
Wondered about this myself. While St. Louis is actually slightly closer than Atlanta, I thought the selection committee wanted to keep teams regional as best they could. Andy Katz said something to the effect of UK going to Atlanta because it's more regional to the SEC but I don't know.
Atlanta seems to make the most sense.
