UCLA may have really lucked out in getting a 2 seed, but, San Diego then Oakland to get to the Final Four, with Memphis as a vulnerable #1 in that region? That bracket sets up really nice for them, maybe with Gonzaga as the potential bump in the road. It looks to me almost like when 'Cuse won it all a couple of years ago, starting in Worcester, and having the regional in Albany.

Right now, they're in my final four.

Committee did a horrible job this year. Air Force had no business even being near the field, and yet they're picked as an at-large. Utah State was also a bad pick, and Bradley and George Mason were shaky. Seton Hall should have been one of the last couple in (if they made it), but got a 10 seed for some reason. Tennessee crumbles down the stretch and gets a two seed while UNC and BC are 3 and 4 despite playing as well as anyone in that nation over their past ten to fifteen games. Nevada's a five seed? Cincy isn't in the tournament?

The problem seems like the committee was trying to make a point by punishing teams with bad non conference schedules like 9-7 in the ACC FSU being out and 10-6 in the Big XII Texas A&M squeaking in with a 12 seed, but then they go and give a bid to Air Force. The chairman of the committee was on the CBS Selection Show and came off as totally inconsistent in his reasoning while Billy Packer tore him apart.

Bad job this year.

Gonzaga got a bit of a lousy draw. Xavier as a 14? That does not compute. I know they won their way in, but still. The A-10 tournament champ should not be that low.

We have a game going on right now in Philly, kids. Albany 40, UConn 33, 15 minutes left.

The Huskies have been turning it over left and right, and the Danes are hanging right there.

Get ready to start tearing up those brackets...

Hope you've got some tape handy. UConn comes back from being down 12 to win by, basically, the usual 1 vs. 16 margin. Uh, guys? Remember what I said to BC and Ohio State? STOP TRYING TO GIVE ME A HEART ATTACK.

And Kansas goes down in the first round for a second year in a row. Weren't they a 4 seed when they lost last year to Bucknell?

And Murray State almost pulls off the upset of UNC. I would have loved to see them do it.
