    Yup, No. 6 in 1999. Drew a good Evansville team first and lost to (I think) defending national champion Kentucky in overtime in the second round. Great game by Ryan Robertson.

    In 2000, it was Dook as a No. 8 seed after getting a solid DaPaul team in the first round, which also went to OT.

    I'll be fucked if Kansas plays Belmont in the first round this year. ;)

    If someone were to write a column in which he or she said they gained a new appreciation for how difficult it can be to select a field of 65 teams, that would be fine. If they wanted to include some of the concerns that came up, great. But if they put out NCAA pap as a result, that's not fine. That's when I tell 'em I've just killed their column.

    Perhaps the NCAA just needs to do away with the secrecy involved. I know that stands about as much of a chance as having the NCAA implement a football playoff system in Division 1-A unless Congress threatens to sever funding, but it would be nice.
