A Number 1 Seed??

Wow.... I, and most Husky watchers, wasn't expecting this. Even with the Kentucky loss, I thought UW would rate a #2 or #3 seed. About 95% of brackets around the country will have Washington as the first #1 seed out, and with a matchup against either GT or Louisville starting at them in round 3 -not to mention a very good Pacific team in round 2- that might be a good prediction. I do think the Huskies have earned this, but I'm still not sold on this team. I watched them dismantle a mediocre Arizona State team, then let them so far back into the game in went into overtime. Number 1 seeds don't do that.

The NCAA didn't do the Dawgs any favors. Last week, the Huskies were a darkhorse Final Four or Elite Eight pick. Now, anything less than St. Louis is a downer.

Still pretty freakin' cool though.

Oh, and I'll probably delay the AL preview a week. This is the first weekend of March Madness, which might just be the best sports week of the year.

Bracket Day tomorrow! Have fun!
