They spoke of 3 Big East teams (Louisville, Pitt and Uconn) getting 1 seeds, and the 3rd 1 seed going to Memphis, Michigan State or some team out of the big 12 (can't mean Oklahoma as they've struggled down the stretch) but aren't they overlooking the elephant in the room? Just saying, UNC should be #1 tomorrow as they were #1 most of the year and are at 2 now and the 1 team went down yesterday.

I don't know what the hell they were talking about, but UNC will be a 1 seed in the tournament.

Did you see that too? It was unbelievable. I was watching and thinking: I hope they give poor little ole UNC a meager 2 seed somewhere. WTF! In a way, it would be funny to watch this UNC team romp through the field like they did last year for being so disrespected. And believe me, when the tournament starts, and these teams are seeing the Heels for the first time, there is going to be some big blowouts.

When I think of UNC, the word that always stands out to me is "disrespected".

Give me a break. UNC has been talked about as a one seed by everyone all season. One group of reporters left them out, most likely by mistake. It isn't some kind of national disrespect for the Tarheels.

This was an in depth discussion about possible 1 seeds. Not a random sample of "who you got?"

Come tomorrow, UNC will likely be ranked number one in the nation. Thats a ranking they will hold at least until Wake beats them again next weekend. :)

They will definitely be a number one seed.

Just because you are #1 in the nation doesn't mean you will get a #1 seed.

Agreed, they will seal it by getting to the ACC championship game. Don't even have to win it and they have the number one overall. I just want them to win it.

Has it ever happened that the current number one didn't get a top seed?

And I want a rematch with with either Virginia Tech or Miami since they are only two teams in the ACC this year that we did not defeat. So I will be pulling for one of them Friday. :)

the number one seed should be based on a season's work, not the outcome of a tournament where you have a bunch of desperate teams trying to get into the dance.

UNC will get a one seed regardless of what happens in the ACC tourney. Memphis should NOT get a one seed...I think Oklahoma deserves a one seed before Memphis. Hell, I'd give Louisville a number 1 before Memphis. Memphis plays in a shit conference and their OOC schedule wasn't nearly as tough as their OOC schedule from last year. As for Oklahoma I think 2 of their losses came with Blake Griffen on the bench.

My prediction for the one seeds are UNC, UConn, Pitt, Oklahoma

The team I'm most worried about playing is Pitt.

The #1 should be UNC, UConn, Pitt and MEM. LOU shouldnt get one. That being said UNC wont make the final 4 this year and the Big East could have 3 in it.

Highly doubt it, i'm just saying that the rankings don't mean anything.

So what if Wake goes on a run and beats Duke and UNC en route to winning the ACC tournament? Do they not get consideration for a #1 seed (of course not THE #1 overall seed)?

They didn't start high enough, have too many losses, will end up with a 2 seed based on that, which aint bad. UNC started the season at 1, finished the regular season at 1.

What has Memphis done to "earn" a 1 seed? Play in a crappy conference? The only tough games they've had, they've lost, except against Gonzaga. Their toughest opponents this year aside from Gonzaga were Syracuse, Georgetown and Xavier....games they lost. Are you serious???

We would get consideration, but I don't think we would get it, unless there are few upsets in other tournaments.

Of course I would settle for being a number two in whatever region Memphis is a number one (if Memphis gets one). Thats nearly as good as being a number one.

I don't think starting position means that much. Wake made it to number one. The to many losses are the losses to Miami, GT, and NCSU. Win one of those and we have a good shot at number one. Win all three and we are a 1 regardless of what happens this weekend.

Yeah starting position is based upon pre-season expectations, which is useless in both college football and basketball. There shouldn't be a poll until the first month of the season is completed. I guess my thing is that if Louisville wins the Big East tourney, they would get 1 seed consideration, even though they would also have 5 losses.
