I would take that right now, 5 seed playing a 12 like Michigan, and a second round game against Kentucky. In Boise, I would love that.

Pitt would be a war if we got by Kentucky and Jodie Meeks-
If we survived the first 2, toughened up and beat Pitt, UNC would most likely be our Elite Matchup. Wow- tough stuff! Then a potential F4 against OK, WF, or maybe UW. Our we up to the challenge???

Lots will change by then, but still fun to ponder!

I would also LOVE to see St. Mary's HAMMER F-UCLA! Mills chance to showup Collison. They would be in tuff vs. Louisville though.

I'm hoping for a 3 seed. Means we don't have to play the 1 seed in our bracket until the Elite Eight. It's doable if we keep winning.

Has Gonzaga as a 4 in Portland...wouldn't that be nice.

There's probably no difference between a one and a two this year. And maybe not even any difference between a one and a four. I think what does matter this year is where you play.

If we win both games this week, we have a good chance of playing in Portland as a 4 or 5. I wouldn't really matter. I suppose the 4 gets an easier first game (is there is such a thing this year). I am hoping that by the end of the year we're a 4 or 3 in Portland and stay in the West bracket.

Portland or Boise. Not much difference in terms of travel and crowd factor. They would be equally good, IMO.

Seeds are what they are for a reason.

Interesting that our odds of getting a 1-4 seed dropped from 70% last week to 65% this week. Not that this is a scientific process but still curious.

As we continue to win games we "should", we become less compelling than the latest BCS team that got some surprising win against a name opponent. The memory of our OSC wins fade by the day. We need to beat SMC and Memphis to recapture some of the buzz.

Also getting a 12 seed like Michigan followed by probably a rising Kentucky team is a tough way to get to the second weekend.

Agree that we should be happy playing anybody we get in Boise or PDX, though.

Oh Don't worry. It will not be like it is now in March. There's way to much time left. The seeding is close, but could change a little. But where Lunardi is mostly off, is where teams play.

A win by Ok State against rival Oklahoma tonight could help our RPI

Blake Griffin is really, really good.
