Wow. What a baffling job by the selection committee. Our heads are still spinning, and we have a ton of questions.
Here's 10 of them:
1. Is it possible that we could have done any worse? Four wrong? Seriously?
2. How do UAB and Clemson make the field with one Top 50 win combined, and Colorado get left out with six Top 50 wins (six!), including three wins over a 5 seed?
3. How does VCU, who finished in fourth place in the Colonial and went 3-5 down the stretch, get a bid, and St. Mary's, who was co-champ of the WCC and beat St. John's and Gonzaga, get left out? How is that consistent?
4. How in the world did Utah State and Richmond get 12s?
5. How does Georgia get a 10 and Alabama, who beat them twice in the last week, get left out?
6. How does George Mason get a higher seed than Old Dominion?
7. How do any of the Big Ten bubble seeds make sense? Michigan's a 8?? Illinois a 9? Penn State a 10?
8. How is Butler an 8? How are they three seed lines better than Gonzaga?
9. How is Missouri an 11? How is Kansas State two seed lines ahead of A&M?
10. Why did the SEC title game not even matter? Why is Florida a 2 and Kentucky a 4?
