    Selection committee

    Who ever was on this years committee should never be allowed to do so again. My biggest beef would be Washington getting an 11 seed. Since when has the Pac-10 champ gotten so little respect. The west coast overall got the shaft with some of the seeds they were given. I think too many people are watching and listening to way to much ESPN. If anyone across the nation pulls off a perfect bracket I'd be surprised.

    There weren't even any left after the first round.

    Re: Selection committee

    Washington had 2 quality wins all year. Last year Mississippi St. got a 14 seed for winning theSEC tourney title. The Pac 10 was bad thi year 3 teams had winningrecords. There wasn't a perfect bracket on ESPN after rd 1

    Re: Selection committee

    I love the job the selection committee did this year. They set up some incredible matchups. Thursday is one of the most fun days I've had with this tournament.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Wrong. Upsets are bad for ratings. They want the big dogs making it to the Final Four.

    Disagree to an extent. America loves to get behind a cinderella. A David v. Goliath game can get just as well of ratings.

    The media loves to talk about a Cinderella, but it doesn't bring anywhere close to the ratings that a Goliath vs. Goliath game does.

    Washington wasn't the Pac-10's best team; the reg. season champ was, Cal. I do agree that they should have been seeded higher.

    You are insane. Outside of ND getting a 6 and Wisconsin a 4, this has been almost perfect. Washington was horrible until recently.

    Seriously, this has been some of the best seeding they have done in a long time.

    Re: Selection committee

    New Mexico as a 3 seed was a complete joke. And I am not just saying that because I hate Alford.

    A four loss team in a pretty decent conference is a joke at a three?

    Please, they were a perfect 3 seed.

    Re: Selection committee

    My main problem with the selection comittee is every year they seem to match up the 2 mid major teams that people say could surprise in the first rd. they did it twice this year. Utep vs Butler and Temple vs Cornell

    Have you followed college basketball at all this year? The Pac-10 has been terrible. That is why they don't get much respect. They were lucky Washington beat Cal, otherwise they would probably have had just one team in.
