In what can be described as “one big ass screw up” via ESPN, we all found out the seedings for the 2019 Women’s NCAA Tournament hours before the selection show was supposed to release them. It was such a giant blunder, ESPN moved up the selection show to 5PM from 7PM and issued this statement:

Even before the blunder, it was widely known (unofficially) that the Notre Dame Fighting Irish were to be a #1 seed and play in Chicago. SO HURRAY FOR THAT!
The Irish are looking to repeat as National Champions this year after another ACC winning season. Maybe Sports Illustrated should have waited to use the “Twice as Ice” headline after all.
At any rate, we are all pumped to cheer on Jackie Young, Marina Mabrey, Arike Ogunbowale, Jessica Shepard, Brianna Turner — and all the women on the team as they look to bring home another Natty to South Bend.
BUILD HER A STATUE!
Now that we got some of that hype out of the way, let’s get down to business: BRACKET PICK-EM TIME. I created a group for all of us OFDers to use to pick the 2019 NCAA Tournament.
