The best day of the year has arrived.
In just a short amount of time, the field of 65 will be released by the selection committee. We all know that Gonzaga has been sliding in the wrong direction for the past month or so but the Zags should easily land an at-large bid in this year's tournament. Most bracketologists have concluded they will be somewhere on the seven line playing at a place other than Spokane, Washington where many fans were hoping they'd wind up.
If the Zags do indeed land on that seven line, you can bet that there will be some dangerous teams waiting for them. Teams like Florida State, Missouri, Georgia Tech, Utah State, San Diego State, Clemson, UNLV, and Old Dominion could all be potential opponents for Gonzaga. What this means is that Mark Few's team will have their hands full from the get go. What makes things worse is that there will definitely be a lengthy plane flight involved to wherever the Bulldogs wind up. Probable locations include Milwaukee, Buffalo, and Oklahoma City. A few weeks ago we were talking about how cool it was going to be to play our first two rounds in Spokane probably against a twelve seed and then a four but that is now all distant history.
Don't get me wrong, there is still hope for at least a six seed which is why we're asking for some positive vibes in this thread.
