    Pretty cool, but I'll be shocked if Omar doesn't win:

    My initial feeling on looking at the bracket is that Freamon and Bubs are seeded too low.

    Cool premise, poor execution as the bracket is constructed incorrectly. This bothers me tremendously on a sports-centric site.

    Agreed. Frank Sobotka, too.

    A disservice to fans of the Wire and to fans of brackets.

    Way too many people left out.

    OK, i'm far from a Wire expert.

    But HITF is D'Angelo a 6 seed, Brother Mouzone an 8 and stupid Herc in there but pretty Carver isn't?

    Yeah. They really botched this.

    Carver is a lead-pipe cinch to win the NIT.

    Damn, I didn't even notice Carver was missing. That's really bad.

    Pryzbylewski was going to be a 16 seed but he worked his way to an 8 in the last season.

    I posted the damn thing and didn't even notice that. Indeed that is bad.
