Here's what Michigan State's NCAA Tournament projections currently look like.

Selection Sunday is less than a month away (March 11), and we can feel March Madness right around the corner. You've got to love this time of the year.

Michigan State is one of the more interesting cases for this year's tournament. Not because the Spartans might not get in--they're a lock--but where they might be seeded.

Currently, MSU is No. 2 in the AP Poll. The Spartans are 24-3 overall and second in the Big Ten Conference.

That seems like the resume for a No. 1 seed, or at least a No. 2, right? Maybe not.

The NCAA Selection Committee released its current top 16 seeds on Sunday afternoon, and Michigan State was on the 3-line. This irked plenty of Spartan fans and left many wondering what the team would have to do over the next month to move up.

Using the four most popular “Bracketologists” (CBS, ESPN, Fox Sports, USA TODAY), we've compiled what MSU's tournament outlook looks like as of today:

  • CBS Sports (Updated 2/11) – No. 3 seed, South Region. Playing No. 14 Belmont in Wichita
  • ESPN (Updated 2/12) – No. 3 seed, East Region. Playing No. 14 Belmont in Detroit
  • Fox Sports (Updated 2/12) – No. 3 seed, South Region. Playing No. 14 Charleston
  • USA TODAY (Updated 2/13) – No. 3 seed, South Region, Playing No. 14 UC-Santa Barbara in Wichita

What do you think Spartans fans?

Do you trust that the committee will give your team a boost depending on how it closes out the season? Or is MSU stuck?
