Umm.  No free Pizza for the rest of us?  That may give me some incentive to run over there around lunchtime.

Wish I could be there. Any opportunity to spend more time with our team is welcome, but I have a meeting at 1 pm which is mine and which I cannot move.

I'm hoping the Zips receive a 6 or 7 seed (or higher) as 8 and 9 seeds 1) are in the 1 seed region and 2) would play each other in the 2nd round.

Based on the weekend results, I think we get the #4 seed. There is no doubt that we are one of the top four teams in the country right now, and I think the committee will recognize and reward that.

 

I said this yesterday, that I wouldn't be surprised if we ended up with the 4 seed. It all depends on where Indiana falls to. I don't know if I see the committee giving all 4 seeds to the ACC, so I think the best non-ACC school will snag that 4th seed. 

 

What time is the selection show?

I will be bold....and subject myself to 2nd guessing....

I don't think that Indiana is going to fall anywhere...but up

Indiana has no losses

I think that Wake Forest is the obvious #1...even with a loss to Georgia State

I think that Indiana will be #2 seed...based on no losses

UNC will be #3 seed

    Duke is #3 in RPI....but I think that they will not be a top 4 seed

Louisville has 2 losses...Duke has 4....I think that Louisville will be seeded higher than Duke

   I still think that Stanford will be seeded much higher than their RPI due to being 2 time defending national champions...and plus they are the only west coast team in the mix

    I think that Akron, Louisville and Stanford will be the 3 teams seeded 4,5 and 6....I just have no idea....in what order

Akron is 16-1-1 since the first weekend...I think that the seeding committee will put a heavy weight on that and Akron will be seeded higher than 7

   I think that duke will drop to a 7 seed....maybe a 6....I do not see them as a top 4 team...their 2 best wins are over Georgetown and Wisconsin...akron's wins over Michigan State, Notre Dame and at Western Michigan...make them a better choice than Duke

I agree with everything you say, TennZip! We'll soon find out if you're right ...

8. Clemson

9. Western Michigan

10. Stanford

Anyone have a link to the selection show broadcast on ncaa.com? I see the banner for the selection show on the men's soccer home page but don't see an actual link to the broadcast.

So our first two opponents will likely be Washington and ND, teams the Zips have already played (and beaten). 

 

Is that good or bad??

Good.  We know that both are quality sides.  Both are capable of beating us.
