Bracketology 2012: Ohio State Projected As A 2 Seed While Preparing For Big Ten Tournament Games

The Big Ten Tournament isn't done yet, but Bracketology must go on. It's unlikely that the winner of the tournament will be able to dethrone Syracuse, North Carolina, Kansas or Kentucky from one of the No. 1 seeds in the big dance, but the Ohio State Buckeyes will give it their best shot. As it stands now in the latest SB Nation Bracketology predictions, the Buckeyes are firmly entrenched as a two seed alongside their Big Ten leading brethren from Michigan State.

The two seed in the Midwest bracket pits the Buckeyes against Long Island University from the NEC. Cincinnati have played their way to a spot in the big dance as well, currently projected to be a nine seed in the West, facing Kansas State.

Akron have been given a spot in the tourney as well by the prediction barring any bad performance in the MAC tournament after having a stranglehold on that conference all season long. They are currently a projected 12 seed, facing the Michigan Wolverines.
