NCAA Selection Sunday Open Thread

At long last, Kentucky Wildcats fans get to watch an NCAA selection show with absolutely zero trepidation.  I had almost forgotten what it felt like not to worry about where UK was going to be picked.  I have none for this season.

Many will sweat the bracket, but frankly, I can't find myself doing that after today.  No matter what happens from here on out, this year has been a success in my book after suffering through the last four years of having about as much relevance to the NCAA basketball championship as a random hockey puck.

For Kentucky, they will unquestionably be selected a #1 seed, but they will not be the #1 seed -- that honor deservedly belongs to the Kansas Jayhawks, whom we have no shot at meeting until the Final Four, if both teams happen to make it.

I think there are still a lot of questions about who the #2 seeds will be, but I can't come up with a scenario, based on my review of the teams, that has anybody but the Kansas Jayhawks, Kentucky Wildcats and Duke Blue Devils in it.  I think there is still doubt about that last number one between the Syracuse Orange and West Virginia Mountaineers.  I really think West Virginia may have done enough to steal the fourth one seed from the Orange.

I'm pretty lousy at bracketology, so I won't even attempt to predict things -- instead, I'll leave that to the experts.  All I know is that if UK isn't a #1 seed, there will need to be a Congressional investigation.

So chat about it, enjoy, and we'll be back with more later.
