Here's the latest 2021 NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament Bracketology by Charlie Crème of ESPN. He has the LadyVols as a #9 Seed opening the 2021 NCAA Women's Basketball Tournament against #8 Seed Marquette at Stanford.

Bracketology with Charlie Creme
Some questionable high marks but I think this may have been put out before some of the transfers settled. MD will be still good but I don’t know if they host. Maybe winning the Big 10 gets them that seed? Ohio State suffered from transfers and they are in at #5.

As far as the LV I think it’s the perfect ranking as they can move up and make a statement.

Based on seedings, it looks like Creme is predicting that Tennessee is the last of the 8 SEC teams to get in. I'm surprised he has Georgia and LSU with higher seeds. I agree that this is an opportunity to make a statement. I don't think anyone is expecting Tennessee to be much of a factor at all in the SEC or National scene, but they have enough quality pieces to make some of the top conference teams sweat. Now go get that backup PG!

I think so as well I think we finish in the top 4/5 and are securely in the field. I would really like to see the SEC schedule and see who we play twice this year. It would be a perfect time to gain some ground or traction

I can't see Northwestern as a #5 Seed or Georgia as a #8 Seed

yea I don’t know much about NW but when I read last year they seemed to “overachieve” I guess you could say? I don’t follow big ten unless it’s MD because I live right here and their shows come on cable.

Northwestern is a big overachiever and I don't think it will be a surprise if Georgia winds up in the WNIT in 2021.

I thought they were Top 3 before the transfer parade started. Truthfully, I think SC and MSST will be head and shoulders above the field, and UK/Arkansas/TAMU will be in the next tier. Beyond that is anyone's guess, but finishing outside the top 5 would be disheartening.

I do say watch out for Missouri. Those young players were good, and they should have some more size next season.

So where do you think UT falls

I think around 6...possibly 5 depending on how well TAMU adjusts post-Carter. I just think that if rosters stay the same as they are right now, 1-4 are too strong.
Gotcha. I think a top 4 finish is possible. Everybody has to accept their roles and excel but overachieving isn’t uncommon with teams. It happens yearly lol

But I could also see them being in top 6.

I think SC and MSST are too deep at all positions, so that's why I had them at the top. Arkansas and Kentucky will both have excellent teams, but they lack inside height. It didn't hurt them in 3 games vs. Tennessee last season, but if there's a weakness for Tennessee to exploit...this is it. They CAN beat both of these teams, but they can't let their skilled perimeter players light them up again.

I agree. Mizzou is going to be much better. Blackwell is the real deal.

Personally, I think this past seasons NCAA Tournament will be the last tournament that there is any doubt we make it in.

I think Rennia, Rae, Tamari and Jordan will be better and the supporting cast will be stronger than many suspect.

I think ESPN Bracketology is more agenda driven and given the time, the average fan could be just as accurate.
