This is based entirely on guessing and instinct.
I don't know. I'm not sold on Kansas...

ridiciulous things...

-butler's a 7 but somehow michigan state, who lost to a d3 school, is a 5
-belmont and winthrop both screwed with bad brackets, the second year in a row that the good mid majors get tough opening rounds
-temple gets a 12 and st. joe's gets an 11, despite the fact that st. joe's lost to temple in the conference championship game
-how the fuck is usc a 6 seed?
-how the fuck is villanova in the tournament?

the mid major revolution may be on, but the power conference's "fucking the mid majors in the butt come selection time" revolution continues as well.
Indeed!

Butler has to go to Montgomery as a higher seed and basically play a local team. That is bullcrap.

UConn will beat UCLA (if Drake doesn't beat UConn first). How's that for hedging? Is anyone up for a Interference bracket pool? Not sure how we'd do it though.

- St. Joe's is better than Temple, and while based on the results of the championship it would have made more sense for the seeds to be switched, St. Joe's will fare better. Plus, they were the ones who knocked off Xavier.
- Agreed about Nova. No way they should be in.

The disparity in the foul calls in the Xavier game was just silly. It's mind-boggling to me how the combination of a highly aggressive defensive style by Xavier mixed with constant penetration by Georgia (Gaines mainly) could lead to so few foul calls. Some questionable other things also. In the end Xavier turned up the heat and really dominated Georgia down the stretch. I don't think the officials effected the outcome, honestly.

i picked st. joe's to win and temple to lose, that's not the point. one team wins the title over the other team, they should get the higher seed... otherwise what's the point of a conference championship?

it's one number, it really doesn't matter... it was just one of many strange things about the seedings this (and last) year.


i only lost georgia and BYU yesterday... 14-2. this concerns me. last time i did this well on the first day i was massacred on day 2... knock on wood.

only two upsets... both of which weren't really upsets (a 9 over an 8 and an 11 over a 6, but an 11 in kansas state that's much better than an 11 and a 6 in usc that's much worse than a 6... if ever there was a game seeded soley for ratings it was that one.
