    Duke Should Not Be a #1 Seed

    I know PP92 and the other resident Dukies will tear me apart about this as being "anti-Duke", but no chance should Duke get a #1 seed. No team should ever get a #1 if they can't even win their own conference.

    As of right now, my #1's would be:

    Ohio State
    Kansas
    Pittsburgh
    BYU

    Thoughts? Should a team winning their own conference be an unwritten requirement for getting a #1 seed?

    Yes...if you can't get a number 1 seed in a conference tournament, then how can you justify a number 1 seed in a national tournament? Especially when your conference number 1 seed has no chance for a 1 seed either.

    I don't think BYU deserves a 1 seed. Its true they beat San Diego State twice but thats their only argument for a 1 seed.

    Of course they should not be a #1 seed.

    Of course they will be anyway, and be put in the weakest bracket, and play 2 or 3 games in North Carolina.

    Duke only deserves it if they win the ACC, if they win the tourney they would deserve it over BYU and anyone else I can think of at 4. Also if they win it and Pitt doesn't win the Big East tourney. Ohio State is the only locked in number 1 seed in my opinion.

    No chance BYU gets a one seed.

    If Duke win the ACC they will get a #1 seed. Watch out for ND to sneak it for a #1 seed.

    With all due respect, I've always placed the Conference tournament winner on a higher pedestal than the regular season winner. If they win the conference tournament, they SHOULD be a #1 seed. Whoever wins the Big East as long as its one of the top 3 teams SHOULD be a #1 seed. Whoever wins the Big 12 between Kansas and Texas SHOULD be a #1 seed. And I think Ohio St. gets it unless they lose today and lose in the first round of their conference tournament.

    Only argument I'll make against myself would be Texas. If they hadn't folded those 2 games at the end of the season I might agree, but if Texas wins the Big 12 they'd be pushing a #1, not sure if they'd get it but they'd be close.

    How can you deny a team 30-4 from being a #1 seed in one of the power 6 conferences?

    I wasnt going to post in here because no matter what we Duke fans say will get turned on us yada yada yada but I had to quote these two comments. They gave me a bit of a chuckle.
