    I think Gonzaga Duke and UNC are 1 seeds. UVA UK and FSU as 2 seeds. UT could be a 1 but Houston will be in among the group somewhere. A B10 school will be in there probably M-state just for PC by the committee. Some up here in tobacco road think ACC will get 3 number 1 seeds. UVA has fallen in the standings recently. They allow teams to hang around too long that shouldn't with their methodical play.

    UNC is playing really well right now. They don't have a dominant big man but they have really got their O rolling and most teams aren't used to the pace they create. They could go all the way.
    Duke needs Marquise back for depth. They can go deep as well and can win it all. Both those teams have great PG play.

    I hate to say it, but UNC is playing really really well heading into the tourney. They pass the ball really well in half court and like always they push tempo and run, even after made baskets, better than anyone I think they deserve a #1 seed as much as anyone.

    FWIW, watch Coby White while you can. The kid is phenomenal. I still abhor the Holes, but watching him is worth swallowing my vomit for two hours.

    My gut tells me the NCAA gives #1 seeds to Duke, UNC, UVA & Gonzaga. Kentucky & Tennessee both pull #2 seeds. LSU should be at home (or jail) watching on TV but will get a 3. (That's the NCAA's idea of "punishment" for them) Think Michigan & Mich State likely the other #2s

    PS, no high seed wants to see Wofford in their first weekend bracket

    One of the prognosticators on ESPN predicted these #1's this morning. It will be interesting to see what the committee says...

    I'm in if someone creates it.

    What's everyone's thoughts on ACC teams heading into Selection Sunday?

    Points of interest:
    • Will the ACC earn three #1 seeds? (Attempting to pull the ACCT convo over here)
    • Which ACC teams on the bubble get in?
    With GTAA finances always in mind, here's the annual reminder that Georgia Tech earns $100K+ for every NCAAT game that an ACC team plays in. In other words, we'll earn more $$$ for every ACC team that gets in and for every game an ACC team wins (until the Final 4, I believe).

    Units are earned by playing in a game. This includes the Final Four but not the championship game.

    That's what I was thinking... my verbiage probably wasn't the best, but I think it stands... a unit for getting in (i.e., playing 1 game) and then a unit for every game played thereafter until the championship (i.e., every win gets us a pay out up to and until the Final 4).

    So even if some folks want Duke to burn, there's a silver lining if they win.

    I think we still have a shot to get 3 on the top line but probably not. Just think there will be a reason not to. Though TN seems to be doing everything they can to not get to the top line so I guess it depends on whether MSU comes through with style points.

    One good thing about AU taking TN to the woodshed is that it should hopefully maybe fingers crossed give NCSU a bit more pixie dust to get through the last 4 in gauntlett.

    Auburn is taking Tennessee to the woodshed today. Up by 22 in the 2nd half. So much for a #2 seed.

    A little off track here but any of you live in Cape Coral/Ft Myers? I’m flying in tomorrow for the week for a family trip but I’m trying to watch some games Thursday and Friday.

    The word going around is that they pretty much had a #2 Seed sewed up and today's game wont affect that

    If that logic held then UNC should lose its one seed as should UVA and especially Gonzaga. All lost. Not sure who moves up?

    Gonzaga shouldnt be a 1 over Tennesee or Michigan State frankly. Unfortunately the reasoning is outside of Gonzagas control but the other two just have better resumes. That said, they are going to get the #1 seed in the West I think.

    Some humor from the committee. Lousiville vs. Pitino Jr at Minnesota in round 1.

    7 ACC teams in NCAAT. Seems kind of low with Big 10 getting 8.
