All quiet on the western, cbb front.

Seems to me that as I continue to read the various boards discussing college basketball, the chatter against Gonzaga being a number 1 seed in the tournament appears to be diminishing. Is it possible that people are finally beginning to accept that the Zags belong at that level, or at least are having a harder time finding reasons to complain about sports pundits putting them on that line? Ever since the first predictions of the zags being on that line came out, the haters have been numerous and ravenous in their disdain for the selection. But as of the last couple of days, Gonzaga is being prognasticated by more fans (even those in the power six conferences) as a number 1 seed. Is this tolerance and acceptance that the Zags are truly one of the best teams in the country or is it the calm before the storm, when the real seedings come out and the Zags are on that line? It has been refreshing not reading the extreme hate as of late. Must admit that I really thought that Gonzaga being a 1 seed was mostly a pipe dream but now I'm beginning to think it could happen. Must we win out to get there or will ANY loss drop us to a 2 or 3? I will also admit, as I watch this team over the last couple weeks I have become less concerned about seeding as they continue to play some of the best basketball I have seen out of Spokane for several years. I am gaining more confidence that this team could beat anyone they a paired against. Seeing how the negative talk has eased I'm thinking that more people have watched them play and are starting to realize how good they really are as well. Do I dare to dream???
