    Wouldn't put much into it. 1) They try to avoid pairing teams that have faced each other during the season in the first round. 2) Joe is good at what he does, but he doesn't get the matchups all that correct.

    Look, for all practical purposes they are likely to be seeded somewhere between 8 and 10. IMHO... 10 is the best we could hope for if we want them to have a half reasonable chance of advancing... 8 or 9 means an early exit.

    Yeah pairing K-State and Gonzaga was a mistake. He would have to move around one of us.

    Was just discussing this last night with my dad. We both agreed that Florida is the one team that we cannot beat in this year's field. Any other team I feel like we have a chance if Bell and Pangos hit their shots. Your thoughts?

    Exactly my thoughts. As I thought, Duke, no change. Creighton after losing two, no change. on and on and on. It only matters if you lose at the end of the year if you'r Gonzaga.

    Agree, if Florida stays healthy, they are my choice to win the tourney and do not want to meet up with them until 2014-15 season. Another match-up problem is UK...#30 would have his way with us...IMO

    Florida is the team I've watched that I want no part of. I think they might be the one team we are not capable of beating (not really, anyway). We would have to be the last eight or first nine to meet what is likely the no. 1 in the tournament. I have a feeling we're a little ahead of the last 8 if we win and a little behind the first nine if we lose. I hope to God we are at least.

    I'll take whoever. The most interesting games, win or lose, are vs the best teams.

    This board goes round and round on this question. I tried to do an honest analysis a couple years ago, and came to the conclusion that 8/9 seeds fared better than 10s, or 11/12s. http://guboards.spokesmanreview.com/...highlight=seed

    Since then, we have had 8 seeded Butler go to the title game, and (9)WSU made the FF. VCU also got to the FF the hard way as an 11.

    It depends on your expectation level. If a sweet sixteen means a successful season, then 10/11/12 gets you there more often. If you want an EE or FF, then the lower seed is always better....Historically speaking.

    It's funny, everyone always talks about "running into the 1-seed"....well, what happened last year?
