Remember a couple of years ago when they dragged the show out to two hours, and in response someone leaked the bracket early? That was fun.

Mich State a #2 I think that means we are likely a #1.

They lost twice as many games as Gonzaga. Really wouldn’t have thought they were going to bump us unless the selection committee wanted to punish us for not keeping the WCC a single bid conference.

thespywhozaggedme

Why did Cincy get such a low seed? I think the committee already slotted them there assuming Houston would win the AAC and made no effort to change it.

50/50 chance. Just as likely to be Michigan

Yeah,

That and no guarantee we're the one seed in that scenario, either.

We could easily have Kentucky as the one seed, and we have Florida State sitting right there.

Just pray that Florida State gets called in the Midwest.

Kong-Kool-Aid

CDC84

This is a great draw for Gonzaga, but there are several teams that play styles that Gonzaga doesn't like, and that includes even Texas Tech, who is hands down the best defensive team in the nation (better than UVA) and plays at a slow tempo.

Baylor normally plays zone. I didn't see them play all year, but if they still play zone, that is going to REALLY help the staff when prepping for the 2nd round.

I get really scared about Zavier Simpson, the nation's best perimeter defender, guarding Perkins if it comes to a Gonzaga/Michigan elite 8 game.

FSU is a possible payback game.


This field PROVED what I have been saying all along. The NET has a lot of metrics incorporated into it. I feel a big reason why GU got a #1 was where they stood at kenpom.com They are so far ahead of anyone offensively, and beating teams by 26ppg in league was so historical that the committee couldn't ignore it.

The NET also punishes teams who lose to bad teams. The committee could not ignore MSU's 2 losses to Indiana and their loss to Illinois.

One thing to consider about our bad matchups...those are teams that I can easily see losing a game they shouldn't, so let's see how it develops.

If the Marquette from a month ago shows up, that team can take out FSU. Same with Baylor over Cuse.

NCAA Tourney is about luck and matchups.

Our matchups were WAYYYY better more conducive 2 years ago.

I mean Northwestern was our 2nd Rd team.

We got stuck with not one but two ACC teams this year.

The one conference I hoped to avoid until Final 4.

Florida St and Syracuse are BOTH teams with unique personel and styles which create fear in ANY team.

Florida St is the deepest and longest team in Nation, not to mention the biggest. And Syracuse has beaten just about everyone team this year, best zone in the game, and injuries to key players which ALL return this week.

Way to much concern on here based on what happened versus different teams in the past. We are better than everyone we would play before the regional final. If we play our normal game, we will be fine. Seriously, if we are going to worry about Syracuse and Baylor then we shouldn't be a #1 seed. Florida State is athletic and got us last year but they aren't Duke and we beat them at full strength. Relax...it's going to be a good first weekend.

I asked this before, so I will ask this again....I never saw Baylor play a game this season. They normally play zone. Did they play zone this season?? If so, that is going to help the staff because they can practice exclusively against a zone defense, even if you argue that Syracuse's zone is better.

At some point Few has to beat Boeheim. Just like he beat Coach K. The tournament presents challenges. I don't know if this 'Cuse team scares the daylights out of me. Would I rather have someone else at their seed slot? Yes.

You're going to hear a lot about Michigan, their defense and how defense travels. And how a GU/MU elite 8 game would be offense vs. defense. Those pundits are COMPLETELY ignoring the fact that GU has a defensive efficiency of 16. MU is at 2. Gonzaga is 1 in offense. MU is 18. But the difference between the two teams is that GU has a 125.1 offensive rating. MU is only at 115.5 A 9.6 difference. That is HUGE!!!!!
