They WERE screwed at #6, regardless of this outcome. Having to play the WAC regular season champ in the first round? The WAC was superior to the WCC this year...Spokane is still having kittens.

Wyoming swept Utah this year...by no means is this an "upset." The only true upset of yesterday was UNC-Wilmington beating USC.

Gonzaga has no one to blame but themselves. They did not come prepared to play and paid for it. Wyoming had just as much time to prepare as they did.

USC was seeded number 4. And they lost. Did they deserve the seed? Yes. Gonzaga didn't deserve the #6 seed. Their season earned them a higher seed. And they didn't bring their A game so they lost in the first round.

I don't know, I was kinda upset at some results last night. *rimshot* But seriously, although Tulsa is no slouch--Marquette was a top 10 team for most of the season. That's an upset any way you slice it.

Yes, they do.

But what does that say about USC? Losing to UNC-Wilmington? How DARE they get a 4 seed based on their season! How DARE Oklahoma State get a 7 seed based on their season! How DARE Miami lose as a 5 seed! What was Marquette thinking, losing to Tulsa?

Does that make any sense at all? Obviously not. Those teams worked hard during the season, and they were rewarded for it (although probably unduly with Miami-FL, but that's beside the point... maybe with Oklahoma State, too.). There's a reason they call it March Madness; strange and crazy things happen. Wyoming was an underrated team; Ohio State didn't care about playing and nearly lost themselves. You end up tied for the second-best record in D1, and you get a 6 seed... yeah, you're going to be a little disappointed. The West is loaded; pretty much everything that goes on over there will be a major surprise to someone. Remember that before you slam Gonzaga for finishing with, at worst, mind you, the 5th best D1 record.

Just to clarify: Wyoming is the Mountain West season champs. Hawaii is the WAC Champs (both in Season and Tourney I think). And the damn Seeding commitee is trying to screw ME personally, because I'd really love to see both Arizona and Wyoming go all the way, but noooooo, they have to meet up 2nd round. That's BULLSHIT! Next year, None of my teams should meet up until the Final Four, and Duke shouldn't be invited. So nyah!

Boy does Winthrop Suck. It might help if they got to play real teams though...

True...my mistake. Hard to get used to the Mountain West after having the WAC around for so long...
