The 2015 Southern projected standings help determine the seeds of the teams in the 2015 Southern Championship bracket. The remainder of the season is simulated a large number of times, and the resulting seeds are used to simulate the Southern tournament.
A team's relative odds to win the 2015 Southern Conference Championship depend only partly on their Southern bracket seed. Winning the Southern Conference Championship also depends on the dynamics of the 2015 Southern bracket. In some cases, the team with a better Southern Conference Championship seed may actually face a harder path to the Southern Conference Championship championship than a team with a worse Southern tournament seed.
In addition, because Southern tournament seeds are based on win-loss records in Southern conference games, Southern tournament seeds are not always the most accurate measure of a team's true performance level. This is another reason why higher seeded teams in the Southern bracket can have better odds to win the 2015 Southern Conference Championship than lower seeded teams in the Southern bracket.
