After an impressive run through Big East Conference play, the Notre Dame Fighting Irish aren't worried about whether or not they get in the 2012 NCAA Tournament, they're simply worried about seeding. CBS Sports' Jerry Palm updated his bracket projection on Saturday night, and he feels that the Irish will land a No. 8 seed.
That means the Irish would most likely have to contend with a No. 1 seed in the second round, which is not a great position to be in. But as Notre Dame already has shown this season, they are capable of playing well enough to knock off one of the nation's top teams.
