I haven't had a chance to dissect the brackets yet, but there cetainly are some irregularities. Washington in at #1, and Gonzaga at #3. It's as if the selection committee set out to prove that they don't have an east coast bias.

Frankly, the whole 'Zag thing is getting old. String together a storybook run in one tournament, and suddenly you're eveyone's "cinderella" pick every time out. It appears that even the selection committee has caught the bug. They're good, but not second weekend good.

Does name recognition count? Hmmm ... let's ask #1 seed, Duke.

All that said, this should be a great tournament. I remain unconvinced on Illinois or anyone else for that matter. This year's field seems wide open, and I wouldn't be surprised to see some lower seeds making a lot of noise deep into the tournament.
