You said Illinois will be favored in next 5.  Do you think they will be favored at Minnesota?  Gophers have plenty of depth, and Hoffarber is a better point than given credit for.  He was already assists leader before Nolen went down.  He is an underrated passer, and will continue to score.

Hey Parrish, Please look at Duke's schedule last year and tell me where the quality wins were to land them their #1 seed. The committee always sees regular season title followed by ACC tournament title and anoints them with a 1 seed.   Duke always get the benefit of the doubt in the seeding process (and they never have to travel far from Durham).
