I'm nervous. I'm excited. I feel this way every Monday. Sunday too actually, as I await the CBS 25 +1 thread. Watiing for the polls on Monday has almost been like waiting for a game on Saturday. I was disappointed in BZ last night for NOT publishing his thread for what ranking will the Zags get in the polls on Monday. Why do I think the polls are important. First of all it's got alot to do with seeding. Second, if the Zags are to achieve a #1 rank it takes us all into a place we've never been. Why do I say we? Because we are a part of the Zags, and they are a part of us. IMO we're inseperable. WE ARE!! ZAG NATION!!!

"The Zags have never been ranked No. 1 -- until now. But then again, no WCC team has ever gone 16-0 -- until now. Their conference schedule isn?t as difficult as some, but the Zags have won 12 in a row to clinch the regular-season crown."

ESPN Power Rankins for 4 March are out AND GU is ranked #1 with IU a close second.

I saw two issues with this vote regarding two voters: Jason McCallum and Myron Medcalf. Last week McCallum had us #3 with IU and UF ahead of us and this week he has GU ranked #4, behind IU, KU and D. Medcalf ranked #1 followed by GU and IU. It does seem that those two are either biased or needed a tad more sugar in their coffee this AM.

The really big surprise is the wide margin in first place votes in both polls and the nice margin in points in both polls over the second place team. This is a very strong confirmation of the #1 ranking to say the least. In fact, I would go so far as to say that if the Zags make a strong showing in the conference tournament, they just might be able to hang on to the #1 spot going into selection Sunday, regardless of the outcome of the other conference tournaments that play later. If that should come to pass, we will get the West #1 seed, hands down!
