    The ACC may be the best conference. I won't argue that...but there is not an overwhelming dominant team in that league. You don't automatically make the best league's conference winner a number one seed. During the regular season, Carolina was best. The committee stated during their preview in February that no longer would they consider the last ten games the most important...but rather the entire season's work. If I had to take a stab at the four top seeds

    Kansas
    Villanova
    Gonzaga
    North Carolina

    Yeah, so I think if Duke wins tonight you have a really bad argument for UNC over Duke. That was my initial point.

    Lunardi argues that there is no need to wait for tomorrow...the top four seeds are the same as I picked. I'll go with someone who makes his living picking the seeds. Duke won two of three against Carolina...but lost three more league games than Carolina. Settled.

    Yeah, I get that the "consensus" is a unanimous UNC over Duke decision. Look a little harder.

    No bracket, a Purdue buddy was mentioning that it could be a possibility.

    I've never been a Sean Miller fan - now I really think he's a jerk.

    West Virginia, Minnesota lost. Hoping Duke beats Notre Dame, and then I don't see how we don't get a 3/4.

    Oregon just lost Chris Boucher to a torn ACL. Hard to imagine they're a solid #2 seed without him (current Bracketology per Lunardi), kid was averaging 12 & 6 per game.

    Not that there's ever a good time for a season ending injury, but right before the NCAAT starts has to be the worst time to have it. Terrible break for the kid and Oregon. No time to adjust and figure things out.

    As "payback" against UCLA and running out the clock with a 86-75 lead he called timeout with 0.9 seconds left. Alford and team were starting to get in a line to shake hands and he calls a silly TO just to be make a statement. What a jerk.

    I'm not saying Miller was right in doing it, but in a regular season matchup Alford called a timeout up 5 with 1.2 seconds left. Miller could have easily been the bigger man, though. Disappointing.

    Let's draw Oregon. Kinda like getting Cuse minus Anuwaku.

    As much as I hate to say it Dukes win just earned them a one seed,
    One seeds should be Nova, Kansas, Gonzaga, Duke

    If Syracuse gets in in any way (First Four included) it will be an absolute travesty. ESPECIALLY if it's at the expense of a team like Illinois State.
