    since we’re out of the regular season I figured it’s time for a new thread. ACC getting three one seeds is trash. UNC and Duke are fine but get out of here with UVA.

    And how on earth are you making Washington an 9 seed and Oregon a 12?

    It appears much of this draw was completed sometime in late February, with Duke's slot held until they could see how Williamson came back, which is fine. But to have two one seeds who got smoked in their conference tournaments, one in the quarters yet, kind of gives the game away.

    It’s about name brands.

    I think Villanova got hosed as well. They’re not as strong as they were last year but they’re not a 6 seed either.

    Holy shit. Sparty beats Michigan three straight games on three straight weekends, finishes with better record, yet gets the same seed. (Actually Michigan has a better opening matchup and a better regional road to the FF.)

    Does the committee pay any attention to ANY games?

    Temple getting in was a retirement gift for Fran.

    ESPN is talking records against the spread. Instead of records they ought to post the money line

    Maybe Glantz-Culver should pick the field.

    You haven't really watched much, have you?

    See? I can play the parochial game just as poorly as you do.
