    Barkley is completely lost on this show. Rambling on, unfinished thoughts, weird statements out of nowhere.

    But he just called the committee chair out on Colorado State 0-9 on the road after they just talked about how important road wins were.

    It's a good point, but he didn't express it very well.

    Re: Tournament Field (#1-68)

    Interesting note that Missouri was #8 and Baylor was #9, could easily say if Baylor wins the Big 12 Tournament that they are a #2 seed while Missouri drops to a #3... How mad would have Mizzou fans been then?

    You realize they dont seed straight off the S curve. its like 60% "s" curve. 35% location. and 5% conference... want to limit interconference matchups until further down the road.

    A lot of times that is done after the seeding though, they won't bump you down to a #4 seed from a #3 seed to avoid a match-up in the second round. Rather they simply place you in a region that avoids the conflict, not bump you down. Although it can happen... Just is pretty rare.

    Re: Tournament Field (#1-68)

    Drexel and Oral Roberts should have been in over BYU, South Florida, or California.

    So with S curve.. should have had Larry E followed by HB, not sure why they didn't set that up.

    With where the other Big 12 teams are placed that have better seeds than ISU there were really few places to put ISU.
