    We need teams at-large teams to keep losing tonight. Every loss moves us up the pecking order for seeding. We want an 11 or 12 rather than a 9 or 10.

    13 or 14 would be too low for a conference champ, though.

    I was actually thinking that we will probably be an 8 or 9 seed. That might be a bit high, but for the selection committee, we just won four straight in four days on neutral ground. The best part is we will probably be up against a good BCS school instead of some disrespected mid-major upset special type school.

    I think 8 is the low end. Probably 6-8. I just don't see them seeding a major conference champion that low.

    No chance. 10 if we're lucky. Lunardi did his bracket update last night assuming UA would win because they were the higher seed. He put them as a 13 seed playing Florida State in Albuquerque. Their resume' looked incredibly similar to ours...

    It would be sweet to end up at a location somewhere in the west rather than getting shipped off to somewhere like Pittsburgh or Greensboro...

    If we can get a 6, I'd be ecstatic. But that's one of the top 24 teams. I just don't see it.

    as of right now Lunardi has Cal as an 11 seed and Palm has Cal as a 12. I think Cal and Colorado are the only two that get in from the PAC.

    I think we'll get a 10 or 11 seed and that the committee will reward us as the conf champs by sending us to ABQ. Selfishly I'm hoping for Greensboro. :thumbsup:

    No chance that we get better than a 9/10 seed but that's not a bad thing, every year there is at least 1 or 2 11/12 seed upsets in the 1st round.

    they shouldn't get in the tourney based on sheer stupidity alone.

    I think we get the beautiful 12---5 matchup. I swear, that is the biggest upset seed of them all!

    11 or 12 seed wouldn't be to bad.

    I want one of these over anything 7-10. We get a slightly tougher first round matchup, but pending a win, we won't be stuck against a 1 or 2 in the second round. Gives us the best chance for making it to the Sweet Sixteen.

    it is interesting that Lunardi had Arizona as a 13 seed playing in the Arizona region (not going to happen) against Florida State. Since FSU beat Duke today, they are moving up. Palm had Arizona as a 13 seed as well playing against Georgetown in the East bracket (first game in Portland). I think our resume was pretty similar to Arizona so I think and 11 to 13 seed is what we should expect.

    I really don't think we'll get anything lower than an 11 seed.

    I am hoping they go to the East region. Gonna be in Boston for the sweet 16, if they can somehow make it that far. I told a buddy that they had a .0000001% chance of making it two days ago. If they actually get seeded, it will be about a 10% chance they win both games.

    11 seed would be ideal. I'll certainly take a 10 or 12, though. We're safe from that 8/9 bull****, IMO.

    rpiforecast has Colorado at 61 right now with a few games left to play. The game that can still affect us is:

    Ohio (rpi #58) vs Akron (rpi #51) it is 62-61 Ohio with 54 second left


    we really want Akron to win this one.

    Would LOVE to get Murray State in the First Round. They are ripe for the picking IMO
