    It's official - all-Big 12 regional at Omaha

    Wow - Texas A&M beats LSU at Baton Rouge, so the top four Big 12 teams get to compete in Omaha for their one spot in the Final Four:

    Texas A&M vs. Texas
    ISU vs. Nebraska

    Absolutely ridiculous.

    That's an understatement.

    Besides regional placement, how do they figure out the seeding? We're ranked 5th but a 7 seed?

    The tournament seeding was announed Sunday; the latest AVCA pool, in which we were ranked 5th, came out the next day (the previous poll had us ranked 7th).

    IIRC, we were also ranked 7th in RPI.

    To put it in terms of the basketball tournament, we're a 2 seed. We were considered the 7th best team in the tourney.

    They did all other conferences but the Big 12 (no other conference had more than 2 teams in a regional, I think I heard earlier in the week).
