    And it seems like someone said Miami should be a 1 seed along with Indiana...

    Yes I did. So now I will ask you the same question since you seem hell bent on this topic. Answer this for me, If Duke or North Carolina had won both the ACC conference AND the ACC conference tourney would they have been a #1 seed? Yes or No

    Don't know and don't care. It's just funny as hell when someone so cocksure of himself about something so uncertain as sports starts laying it all out for everyone as the way it should be. That's why they play the games... If it was so cut and dried... Just annoint the title based on the leading bloviators opinion and be done with it.

    But if that happened, there would be no FGCU or WSU... There would only be room for the number 1 seeds.

    There never would have been Jimmy V and NC ST back in the day beating PHI Slamma Jamma

    It is based on a power conference and what happens 100% of the time. Had one of those teams did what Miami did they would have been a stone cold lock as a #1 seed, plain and simply. It is an argument that can not be argued. That was my sole basis for Miami to be a #1.

    all the Cinderellas are gone, only ONE # 1 seed left, anyone left can win it all...one stat that really cant be measured is that teams got between three and four days to prepare for their sweet sixteen match ups...whether you like them or not Coach K and Coach Boeheim are great at prepping for a team with a few extra days..

    The game of the tournament might be Louisville and Duke on Sunday...Florida seems to be cruising along quietly and kicking tails....Could this be the year where NO #1 seeds get to the Final Four ?

    Duke is going down. Always over hyped. PLanning Easter dinner around the game. All will be going against Duke! MY team was out before the season started as they got banned from the big dance but I HATE DUKE!!! I don't care who wins as long as Duke falls. Be true to your school!

    Well luvmylabs, I get you dislike Duke but to say they're overhyped might be a wee bit of a stretch. 15 final four appearances, 6 NCAA runner-ups and 4 national championships to most people would be a far cry from overhyped. Just saying!

    Looking forward to the games today. Duke v Louisville should be fantastic, and since the only way I can advance is if Duke advances, I'm pulling for Coach K over Coach P.
