CBS Sports projects late run in March for the Crimson Tide squad

The Alabama Crimson Tide enters March Madness as the No. 1 overall seed for the first time in program history. The Tide has become one of the trendier bracket selections this year because of that top seed, the greatness of Brandon Miller and a fairly reasonable path to the Final Four.

The CBS Sports basketball analysts, including Villanova’s Jay Wright, unanimously predicted the Crimson Tide to the Final Four in each of their brackets. Seth Davis even has the Crimson Tide beating the Kansas Jayhawks in the National Championship game. Alabama’s main competition in the South region will be Arizona, Baylor and Virginia.

The Tide’s conquest for a National Championship starts tomorrow on CBS against Texas A&M Corpus Christi at 1:45 p.m. CST.
