March Madness starts this week. The Stanford men got a 4 seed and the women got a 3 seed. While you can always complain about the brackets, I think both teams should be pleased about the outcome. The men get a easy commute to Spokane. And the women go to the Final Four if they can go 4-0 at home.
I have a good feeling about the tournament this year. It’s odd to say, but I think the men’s team has been too talented the past few years. I think that Coach Montgomery is at his best when he’s working with more limited talent within a system. Ten years ago, the women’s team was at the top. They have slid down into the second tier since, but they could easily ride the home court advantage into the final four.
