Wow. After all the words spilled prognosticating on whether we'd make the tournament it is now time to move on. What seed, what region?

7 seed. Somewhere on the east coast is my guess.

RPI is what they use to seed, we should be a bit lower. Wouldn't surprise me If they bump us. I'd be pissed if I was a 5 or 6 seed and got us

Maybe they can pull a Davidson this time around?

At this point this evening, if we replace Zags with St Mary we are an 8 playing Vandy in East, with Villanova in half bracket above us

They had trouble finishing games for a good chunk of the season, but right now they seem to have put it all together. This looks like a team that can do some damage in the Tourney. Bring on a lower seed where they won't have a huge target on them this year.

Back to the days of a high seed. Sometimes I think it's better than a 4-8 seed. Win your first game (which you need to do anyways) and you're suddenly on the path of a top seed.

I hope we get a 12, I love the 5/12 game...................

No 5 is going to want to see this team in the first round. We can make some noise, again.

Anyone, Anytime, Anywhere!!!

Go ZAGS

I don't think anyone wants to see this team in their bracket at this stage of the game

We are in a completely different situation this year. There are very little expectations but no one will want to play us.

I'm not lowering my expectations...with the exception of Josh and Alberts, everyone else that played tonight played in the Elite 8 game against Duke. This is a veteran team that backs down from no one. Go ahead, make us a 12 seed, I double dog dare you.

I am hoping for 10-12. We always win the first game anyway :) and that sets up a doable path to the SS. Plus, there simply are no dominant teams this year like last with Kentucky, Duke, Wisky, etc.

doesn't matter what the seed...we are playing with house money AND playing our best hoops of the season. a great recipe for some upsets.

Perfect.

11 seed with a mid-level BCS school as a first rounder, and then a 3 seed in the second. In Denver.

An 11 seed can be a really good one to get, even when the field is stronger than this one will be. 6's are usually beatable, and there is always a 3 every year that is overseeded. If you get that overseeded 3, you have a real shot. You also stay away from the one seed in the sweet 16.

all gravy from here.

an anyone, anywhere, anytime mentality…

however, can't think of a worse match-up than Baylor. Just too strong inside with rebounding/defense.

really negates our advantage on most teams.

would much rather face Seton Hall, Wisconsin, Texas Tech, Dayton, etc as the other projected 6 seeds.

wait…how is Wisconsin projected as a 6 seed? I saw them play in person this year…average. I'd bet we beat them by 15-20 the way our guards our playing right now…no joke.

I realized these projectionists are WAY too RPI reliant. that screams 2012, not 2016. metrics have evolved.

The 2015-16 Gonzaga Bulldogs. A four seed's worst nightmare.

If this happens, the committee deserves a ton of blame. One of the top 16 teams in the field should never have to face a roster full of high major players in its opening game, much less a team with KW and Sabonis in the starting frontcourt. GU is a 12 at worst. Probably an 11.

What is Rothsteins deal? All of the bracket sites have GU a pretty clear 11. He also tweeted after the game tonight that SM probably won't get in to the tournament, right after Lundardi updated his bracket and showed them still in.

I think we should be a 10 seed and stay in Spokane ... payback is fair ..they did it for Davidson back when the Zags were the better team (10-7) but Davidson had a "home" game and beat us. I was at that game in Raleigh and there might have been a hundred Zag fans total in the arena. It didn't help us any that Curry decided to use that game to springboard into national prominence as he went for 40 (8-10 from the 3 line)

Zags 7 seed in Spokane. :)

If the committee stays true to the formula and uses RPI for seeding, then I don't see anything higher than a 10 seed. But I'm betting that they stick us in an 8/9 seed game just to keep the 5,6 &7 seed teams from whining about having to play the Zags as punishment in the first round.
But there's no way they can seed us higher than 9 without making the prognosticators look idiotic. A 9 seed they can pass off as passing the eye test,etc.

No I don't. Why in the world would I bet the Zags wouldn't make March Madness if they won the WCC Tournament? GU had to get the at-large bid for you to win. They got the auto-bid. Our bet is a wash.

I was joking, but I would still take it.

It's odd, going from outside looking in AND giving the team you beat two good wins. If we were never in it, then I say we should barely register when seeded.

I think we get an 11...

That's very possible. I would rather have that 7 seed Zags11 was talking about. :cheers:
