Can or Should the WCC Get 2 Bids?

I am finding myself dabbling in bracketology. Of course, no matter which teams are chosen, there are always at least a half dozen teams with legitimate cases to be a part of the dance. With our beloved Zags mired in mediocrity most of this year, I have resolved myself that they will make the NCAA tournament by winning the WCC tournament and that's it. Do you folks think we could get multiple bids? Just look at some of the scores from yesterday. Many teams are starting to gather in the middle. The water is getting muddier and muddier. For example, Memphis had an ugly loss. Illinois had been penciled in and they continue to be hugely up and down. St. Mary's got manhandled in the 2nd half. I read CBS Sportsline and they have a bracket that they adjust every couple days. I live in Maryland and the ACC, Patriot League, Atlantic 10, Colonial, and of course the Big East are conferences covered here on the right coast. Here's a question, is the NCAA selection process east coast biased? Jerry Palm has 11 teams from the Big East in. Newsflash- we beat Marquette. Jerry Palm has 3 teams from the Colonial in. George Mason had a nice road win at N. Iowa last night, but N. Iowa is in 4th place in the Missouri Valley. I think Gonzaga should get in over an Old Dominion or a Virginia Commonwealth. I think the argument should be based purely on merit. ( an argument not based on merit is, who wants to see some of these teams in the tournament? Teams with 12 losses. Boston College, Clemson, Marquette, West Virginia, etc, etc.) The ACC is brutal this year. My alma mater UMd has zero quality wins and they are a victory away (today vs. NC St.) from being .500 in the ACC and a serious bubble team. The quality of the NCAA tournament is enhanced by the inclusion of teams from across the country, from all conferences. The PAC10 (and yes, I hate Lorenzo Romar too) is always better than advertised. They prove it every year. The best game of the day yesterday was Wash-Arizona. Compare that game to a middle of the pack Big East slugfest which is almost unwatchable.
