    For the love of God not Palo Alto. I think Jayne Appel just scored on us again.

    I count 6 potential 1 or 2 seeds hosting, and one likely 2-seed NOT hosting is A&M, who we will not be placed with. A 6 seed would be exponentially better than a 7.

    I just hope we can avoid UConn this year.

    I think our regional draw and the matchups mean more than seeds - fans talk about UConn last year, but remember that we were a #4 seed, yet probably should have lost to #12 Green Bay. We only lead for two minutes of the entire game.
    The year before, in getting to the Elite Eight, the regional opened up for us first with Tennessee, then Duke getting beat before we had to play them. Stanford was the first team we played who was seeded higher than us.

    Its hard to gauge how any tourney will go. That is why the dance is so great...upsets always make a great tournament. I would disagree on one thing...we should not have lost to Green Bay. Whoever has the most points wins. Doesn't matter how long you lead. We won. We were that much better.
