With last week's huge win over Indiana in Bloomington followed up by Sunday's victory in the regular season finale against Illinois, Ohio State jumped from 13th to 9th in the latest AP Poll.

The conference shows four teams in the Top 10 with Indiana in the 3rd spot ahead of Michigan State (7), Michigan (8) and the Buckeyes.

The top four overall spots are claimed by Gonzaga, Duke, Indiana and Louisville.

Calling it now, Gonzaga bounced in the second round. (there is no factual base to this statement, I am just voicing my upset of the tourney)

You can feed a bobcat all the chili it wants. That don't mean it's going to crap out diamonds.

It all depends on the matchups.  If I were to guess about the Zags pre-selection Sunday, I would say sweet 16; they have played a decent schedule and seemed to make a conscious effort to make their schedule look better.  Today on SC they were talking about how if WVU had produced a better season that would be another quality win on their resume but they didn't exactly live up to expectations.

Let's hope there is no B1G flameout in the big dance.  Oh, there's another tournament?

No. But I'll get over it should we advance further than both come NCAA's.

We're under the radar until then.

Here is to the hope of playing on Dayton and in the west with the zags. Go bucks.
