I am confident GU will get a #7 seed. I also think a #6 seed is not out of the question but I will stick with a #7 seed.

I think we clearly deserve a 6.

But Magic committee 8-ball says:

...and probably in a far, far land, playing a team that resides in that far, far land. :(

A six seed or seven (especially seven) would be the most realistic seed given to a team with our profile. However, with the exception of last year, we have to remember how often we have been at least one, far more often two or more, seeds below where we would seem to line up otherwise. I think we're going to be well below where we'd expect to be.

The other interesting thing is to see where BYU gets put, if they do. . .

Very cool post/pic, yet feel these Zags are the typical 8/9 seed team in the eyes of the committee.

Why have I seen their current RPI listed anywhere from 15 to 22 based on which website referenced? That makes me nervous...

7 seed, so unfortunately the Zags will not be the lowest seed to win the National Championchip! To quote Andy Williams "It's the most wonderful time of the year".

Lunardi now says a 7 seed in Stl against Iowa. Duke looming at the 2 seed.

Great for first rd, second rd death sentence, slow and agonizing as were last two funerals at MSG.

Voted for 10 seed because 10 is my favorite number. 7 is my second favorite number so if it's not ten it'll be seven. If we get the ten seed the Committee will make up for their mistake by placing the Zags in San Diego.

Zags RPI this selection sunday morning is eighteen (http://www.ncaa.com/rankings/basketball-men/d1/ncaa-mens-basketball-rpi) or nineteen (http://www.cbssports.com/collegebasketball/bracketology/nitty-gritty-report).

Divide be four and the Zags should get a five seed especially considering the injuries through the year and the flu bug during the Portland loss.

Bracketmatrix still has us as the 3rd 8th seed, so while I'm hoping for a 7, I'm not super-optimistic.

I think the committee does something inexplicable as always:

8 seed in Raleigh

I voted a 7 as what I think the commitee will do. I believe that the Zags should get a 5. The conference tournament losses by other teams should move the Zags up to about a 20 ranking, and with about the same in RPI and BPI they should coalesce there. I don't think it will happen.
Maybe it's hangover from last year, maybe it's always been there, but it seems that the Zag losses affect perception of them more than other teams losses.

Deserve: High 7. Committee drops us a line to the 8 to keep us out West in San Diego, AZ looming. We'll be big underdogs if we get to the weekend no matter what - wld prefer to not play Wisc in Milwaukee, Duke in NC, etc.

Wow, you own a very specific Magic 8 ball! Can you shake it for me and tell me what the score of the Zag's first game will be?

Although I think we deserve a 7 seed and possibly a 6, I think we get an 8. Also, I think the fact that a lot of BCS conference favorites were knocked off in their respective conference tournaments will hurt, not help, our seeding. Get ready for the "death seed", an 8 or even possibly a 9, playing in the Midwest or farther east.

No favors from the committee this year, unfortunately. Maybe the committee is so down on us this year they "reward" us with a 10 or 11. That would be OK with me, given the 8/9 alternative.

Go ZAGS

I don't understand why everyone is down on the committee. They gave us a one seed last year when more than half of the country was against it. I see no evidence why they would shaft the Zags. I do NOT believe that this committee is biased. I am sure they give it 100%.

agree it is a committee made up of some very knowledgeable basketball people who know what we did, know the loss in portland was due to depleted team, know that we lost a starter for 6 weeks and know that the WCC is on the upswing....we will be treated fairly for our body of work

I like your ball. We have the same teams but I have them in Milwaukee. Let's go.

Go Zags!!!

I'm thinking a 7 seed.

The play-ins, 15-16 and 8-9 give the committee 24 slots to put teams they don't like or don't feel belong. Sometimes it doesn't work out for them, but I do believe they move teams up or down a slot or two out of bias or vindictiveness, or to accommodate "favored" teams. Look a who gets the 6, 7, 10 and 11-12 seeds (other than play-ins). Some teams are legitimately placed there, but every year there are several placements that fuel my cynicism.

I voted 8 but part of me feels like our lack of big wins coupled with a few stinkers might drop us to an 11 seed. Feel bad for the 6 seed if that happens

I think the team deserves a 6, but I smell a 10 in the works. But we might get a decent location like San Diego.

Correct answer:

8 seed in San Diego vs. Oklahoma St.

1 seed is Arizona
