Notre Dame is a No. 1 seed (at this moment)

Posted on: March 6, 2011 10:22 am
Notre Dame's win at Connecticut combined with Duke's loss at North Carolina pushed the Irish into a position where receiving a No. 1 seed in the NCAA tournament next Sunday is a realistic possibility. Mike Brey's team is now 25-5 with 10 top-50 RPI wins, no home losses and just one loss to a school with an RPI outside of the top 25. That's a strong body of work. The reward for it will come a week from today.

My four No. 1 seeds (at this moment) look like this:
  • Ohio State
  • Kansas
  • Pittsburgh
  • Notre Dame

Notre Dame is a No. 1 seed (at this moment)

I hate to agree, but I do.  Notre Dame has been great all year long and deserve, yes, deserve a number 1 seed.  I hate to agree again, but I cannot disagree at all with Ohio State, Kansas, or Pittsburgh.  I do think we will get a lot of upsets this year making a great tournament!
