Currently Bama would be a five seed going into SECT play (would play the winner of A&M vs UGA on Thursday.)

Here's another example of how the coaches are coaching their games with the NET rankings in mind.

In the Va Tech game this weekend, Buzz Williams called a timeout with under 20 seconds left in the game while the Hokies were down by 11. His intent was to design a play so they could score and draw the deficit back within the 10 point margins listed in the Offensive/Defensive Efficiency category.

It was a good move IF we're looking strictly at the ranking system the NCAA has in place. However, it's just another of those contradictions to "margin of win" isn't considered when ranking the teams for the tournament.

Bama's NET is still sitting in the lower 40's with eight games to play. It will change after today's action around CBB.

Bama is currently at 6-6 away from Coleman (neutral and road games.) If they can maintain that number (.500) we're looking at a 21 win regular season. I'd guess that would put Bama around a six seed.

@#80 Earlier this morning I looked over at the Bracket Matrix and noticed Bama is seeded in over 98% of their brackets.

Road games:
Mississippi State - L
South Carolina - L
Texas A&M - W
Arkansas - W

Home:
Florida - W - historically difficult against UF.
Vandy - W
LSU - L
Barn - W

I hope they get on a winning streak and go 5-3 or 6-2. History would say it is more likely they go 4-4.

Well I said likely 4-4 that would probably be the one:). Arkansas is 5-5 in SEC play so it is not like it is impossible. This is not the Arkansas of old. I could not find their home/road record in sec play but they are 10-4 at home overall and something like 3-4 away.
