I just found this blog through google, because I had to say this somewhere....This may possible be the worst job ever done by the selection committee. Air Force (RPI--mid fifties, beat nobody, lost early in MWC tourney)???? Utah State? (I also think Seton Hall is questionable, but at least justifiable). Actually, was Air Force even within 5 teams of the bracket for most bracketologists?ReplyDelete
Oh...and a little thing... Montana a 12?
Air Force was my 8th team out...so I have no idea how they were chosen to be in the field.ReplyDelete
Utah State didn't deserve a bid either...they had 1 Top 50 win all season.
Even George Mason was questionable.
Moreover, the seedings and locations of several teams was downright horrendous.
I think the Selection Committee did a very poor job this season with the bracket.
