After last week's triumph over the Cornhuskers, the coaches saw fit to move Texas up from #5 to #3. We are now receiving 5 first place votes. This move is a pleasant surprise to me, I did not think the pollsters would jump us over Washington. Nebraska fell to #2 but only 11 points seperate them from #1 Penn State.
My hope is these seedings hold and the tournament committee agrees with them. The four regional host sites are Stanford, Penn State, Wisconsin and Florida. Avoiding Penn State and Stanford would be a good thing. As it stands now it would be:
Penn State and Cal @ Penn State.
Nebraska and Wisconsin @ Wisconsin
Texas and USC @ Florida (with #10 Florida)
Washington and Stanford @ Stanford.
OU rises to #18 in advance of Wednesday's showdown at Gregory.
