I'm thinking that Josh and Brianna would love to see a Louisville/GU match-up; me, not so much. I do like the respect that we are getting from the Louisville area though; one of our first place votes came from the writer for the Louisville Courier.However, I would prefer any other region than this match-up. I would even consider the South as a 4-5 seed to play in San Jose and face Michigan in the Sweet 16 than to have to face San Diego State, Louisville/Minnesota and Indianna. Those teams scare me more than almost any other even if they have been a bit inconsistent of late.
Selfishly yes i would love to see UL. I do see them as a hard out with their defensive intensity though.
Round & round she goes, where she stops nobody knows. Roulette anyone?Nobody has ever come close to predicting an actual bracket so I never get too excited about the prognostications. I'll save most of my excitement for when the REAL one comes out, lol.I saw a couple brackets on the "Bracket Matrix" that still have us as a one seed.We win out, we might get a #2 seed. I'd be willing to bet a #3 seed is more likely though. But....we have to win out and that imo, does not seem likely. We are bound to trip up somewhere, right?KenPom has us .4 of a point fav in Moraga. The slimmest of margins.We will in essence reclaim our WCC crown with a win. But our season does not rely on winning vs. SMC. On the other hand, St. Mary's season does.Thursday looms large.....
While it leaves a bad taste in my mouth, I will have to echo the comments made by gaz-tastic.We will never, ever get a break (or even a fair shake) from the sports writers back east.Personally I'd like to see Miami as a 1 seed with Gonzaga as a 4 seed. Scoot us right into the final 4 with any luck at all!mjc
Right now we are a sure 2 seed, really no question, only way a 1 seed happens is if we win out and everyone else in front trips up...if we don't win out then we are 50-50 at a 2 seed, saint Mary's is a must win for us
We always say we have bias on the East coast, and living in Kentucky I usually agree. Though as GonzagaPride mentioned, we received 2 first place votes in the AP poll this week: from Louisville, KY and fromNew Orleans, LA. Interesting.I see us a flat out 2 seed.
One seed if we win out (including the WCC tournament) and others above falter. Two-four seed otherwise. Four seed if we lose to both BYU and SMU and lose in the tournament. If we lose to SF too, 5 seed.
Couple of weeks ago we were being bandied about as a potential #1 seed. One miracle shot later, (Butler) and it became a two seed. But now it starts, rumblings about how we don't play in the Big East or ACC...if we did we'd surely lose a lot more, ergo maybe a two seed if we win out. However, my fear is that prevailing sentiment is causing a shift towards the three. No matter if we win out, or who above us loses.Check out The Bracket Matrix and you'll see this shifting in action. I don't like it...it is not fair, but there is nothing we can do about it.
