How on earth can UCONN move up to a 4 seed after losing in the first round of the Big-East tourney? They should be no higher than a 5, possibly a 6 after the they play down the stretch.

Looks like Georgia may win as they're up big. Who do they replace and what seed do they get?

ESPN just announced Mt. St. Mary's versus Coppin St in Play-in game... my guess is they probably informed those schools early since they had to make preparations and it leaked to ESPN.

RPI of 14 and SOS of 26 - according to They were 7-5 against the RPI Top 50. UConn was 9-3 in there final 12 games. Wins against West Virginia, Notre Dame, and Pittsburgh. Other quality wins against (at) Indiana and Marquette. They had close losses to Memphis, Gonzaga, Georgetown, West Virginia and Notre Dame. They went 9-1 when their leading scorer (Dyson) was suspended. The Huskies deserve a 4 seed.

I want how you guys can justify Arizona being in over Arizona State when ASU finished ahead of them in the Pac-10 standings. I think it'll be a BAD call, especially with Zona's 19-14 record. Bad Call guys.

If it was up to use Arizona probably wouldn't be in. It is not our decision though and we think the committee will put them in.

Lunardi gave a funny excuse about Villanova and how they are in today on his list becuase as of today they have beat two more conf. champs... and nobody seemed to buy it. Ha!
