    The best test is the Eye Test. My Eye Test says Zags are peaking, and they are one of the best 16th teams. I say they are 10th best.
    Basically, the committee wants the Zags to win out right, don't leave it up to them to decide our seed. That is doom for sure.

    In the intro yesterday to the farcical seeding show of course they showed a disproportionate number of images from the Northwestern "run" and Elaine Benes made an appearance as well. Thank god that fire is out.......BTW, not nearly enough of GU's run. If it were another P5 against the Tarcheaters trust me there would have been a lot more.

It was almost as if they didn't even include the St. Mary's blow out last night.

    Or the fact that GU beat Ohio States by 27: the single best individual team performance of the season possibly.
    GU is an outlier with their WCC schedule and it is always going to hurt them unless the rest of the WCC steps up some day. They really need to ditch the cupcake home games with the Incarnate Worlds of college basketball and either schedule good home and homes or bring in schools like Idaho for home games only.

    My hope is not about seeding but placing. I rather be a 4 or 5 seed in the West than a 3 seed in the East. My dream match up would be a 4 seed in the West with Xavier or Auburn (The Great Pretenders) as the 1 seed.

    4. Gonzaga can’t get no respect. The Zags played in last season’s NCAA Championship game. They almost won it. They’ve got a 5-3 record against Q-1 opponents, their worst loss is a road game against No. 129 San Diego State that falls into Q-2 – and they’re excluded because the bottom of their league isn’t any good? This doesn’t make sense. The predictive metrics all place Gonzaga among the top dozen teams in Division I. This shouldn’t be about whether Loyola Marymount and Pepperdine have bad teams.


    10. The RPI still rules the process. The quadrant system takes into account the greater difficulty of winning away from home, but it still uses the unpopular Ratings Percentage Index as the standard by which the teams are ranked. The NCAA is hoping to conceive a new metric to replace the RPI, but it hasn’t yet come up with something it views as more workable. It turned out that 14 of the top 16 teams in this week’s RPI standings were represented in these seeds.
