The selection committee member guy said they were the last 2nd seed which is what booted them out of the Midwest bracket to the West. In the end it may be the easier path, but still would have been nice to have been closer to home.

They probably should have gotten a one seed. I think the Big12 was the best conference this year, and it really isn't all that close of an argument. But you're right- I think of the 4 one seeds, their best matchup is Michigan State. I actually have them winning that game.

I like that the team that everyone is hating on for having gotten in, Iona, thus setting up the inevitable digger Phelps memorial douchebag run by said team that all the talking heads hated on... is a team that I have a rooting interest in.

Iona over Drexel makes sense to me.

That's strange to me. I was of the understanding that they inverted the 2s based on the rankings of the 1s (i.e. 1 v 8, 2 v 7, 3 v 6, 4 v 5), making the rankings look like this:

1. Kentucky
2. Syracuse
3. North Carolina
4. Michigan State
5. Mizzou
6. Kansas
7. Ohio State
8. Duke

they apparently focused more on keeping the higher rated teams in their regions rather than the matchups

My picks this year are the chalkiest they've ever been.

Easily the least amount of first-round upsets I've picked since I started doing this all those years ago.

I hope that BYU will win tonight.... so they can immediately lose the next game.

I still hope they win tonight though.

Just read that Fab Melo is ineligible for the tournament for some reason. Syracuse's path is already the toughest of the one seeds, in my opinion, and this won't help.

I don't like Fab Melo being suspended, cause now they'll have a built in excuse for when they go down in flames, as is the norm for Syracuse.

You just knew Wisconsin wouldn't be able to find a good shot in those last 10 seconds
