Recommended Posts

Unless the committee doubled-up on SEC teams in this last fourth of the bracket, Kentucky's not in the tournament.....

Why is Miami (FL) only a #2 Seed???!!!

A #2 is pretty good!

In the end, I've never heard the excuse "We would've won if we were given a 1-seed." Miami has nothing to be bent about.

Alright, how in :censored: does Florida get a 3 seed, and Ole Miss get a 12 seed?! None of this tournament is making sense.

New Mexico shouldn't be taken lightly and to me, is a sleeper for the Final Four.

New Mexico just became everybody's sleeper. Their bracket looks soooooo easy.

Probably the same reason Oregon got a #12 despite winning their conference tourney. Maybe the committee made up their minds before the conference tourneys began.

As expected, the Mountain West got 5 teams in. Good showing for the most underrated conference in college hoops.

UCLA 6

Arizona 6

Colorado 10

Cal 12

Oregon 12

The only Pac-12 team the committee got right was Colorado. They should all be in the 8 to 11 range.

Oh hardy har har, of Jim Nantz calling the West Region (Sweet 16 and Elite 8 played in Los Angeles, thank you very much) the "weakest." But it also means we probably get the closest, most compelling matchups and upsets, so ha!!!

If there is an upset brewing, there are two games in my mind that would be good for that moment: 11 seed Bucknell beating Butler (After this game, everyone will learn who Mike Muscala is... and whoever gets Bucknell next will have to fear Muscala) and, since we need a 12-5 upset, how about Ole Miss over Wisconsin.

How the hell does Oregon get a 12 seed, and UCLA get a 6 seed? Oregon got the same seed as Akron. How does that make sense at all?

Lessee....you didn't win a weak ass Conference despite sweeping UCLA, and the most challenging non-Conference opponents were Cincinnati (which you lost to), UNLV, and *shrugs* Vandy, I guess. Show some ambition out of the league some time.

They may be dancing, but that loss to Florida-Gulf Coast still looks really bad. As does that home loss to Georgia Tech and that away loss to Wake Forest.

Cincinnati and UNLV are better than what a lot of other BCS conference teams did. And Oregon BEAT UNLV AT UNLV. And Oregon WON the conference tournament. They are 26-8. Why does UCLA get a 6 seed even though A. Oregon swept then, B. They had a better record than UCLA, and C. They're best non conference win (UNLV) was better than UCLA's (Mizzou).

UCLA won the :censored: ing league outright. Let's start with that.

Can you name examples that got higher seeds that didn't win a better Conference or something else of note?

Oh, and Cal might want to investigate that 8-5 non-conference record. At least they scheduled slightly more ambitiously than Oregon, but, um, they kind of lost to every team that posed a challenge. And then finished the season poorly.

I thought Illinois got a 7 seed and I think their draw is about as good as they could have realistically gotten. If they play well (and that doesn't always happen) they should take care of Colorado. Colorado is pretty good statistically on defense, but it looks like they struggle to guard the 3 which should play to our strengths. I think it will be good for this team to get out of the grind of the Big Ten schedule and face someone new. If they hit their threes, they should advance and Miami is the 2 seed I wanted to see most.

Well Oregon won the Tournament by beating UCLA.

Let me ask first, do you believe that Oregon deserves a 12 seed?

Oregon probably got underseeded, but they played a very weak schedule and the Pac-12 was weak for a "power" conference this year. Schedule tough games non-conference if you want to be rewarded on Selection Sunday.

For the record, I'm picking Oregon to beat Oklahoma State.
