No. 1-seeded Zags face Southern

One little click in the URL line and I'm back in the blogging world after 2-3 days on the sidelines. Onward.

Hmm, could have sworn I saw Gonzaga seeded No. 1 when the brackets came out, despite all the pro-con sparring of Jay Bilas and Jay Williams, and Doug Gottlieb and Seth Davis. Later, I looked at some of the predictions of the “experts” and GU might as well be a six seed. Seth Greenberg still has the Zags going to the Final Four, but he backtracked a bit by saying they're the most susceptible of the No. 1s. Several have GU falling to No. 5 Wisconsin, nearly everyone has No. 2 Ohio State making the Final Four out of the West Region. My non-expert opinion is that the West bracket looks pretty favorable to the Zags, so we'll see.

Here's a look back at Selection Sunday with my article, John Blanchette's column and the reaction of GU students. And here is the A-1 cover today (tip of the hat to Ralph Walter). More on next season's GU-Kansas State game in Wichita here.

Ex-Zag Dan Dickau will take part in a live chat at 11:30 on the S-R website. Go to for more details.
