Why are the CBS guys talking about Missouri being one spot away from the 3 line? They got paired with Michigan State, who was the weakest #1, meaning Missouri was the strongest #2.

Also, I'm okay with Seton Hall not making it, but...Seton Hall had more top 50 wins than all of the play-in teams COMBINED. You're gonna tell me two bad losses at the end of the season is going to put a damper on their entire season, yet you let Iona (who lost in their conference tourney when they should have easily won it) and California (enough said) in? Just doesn't make sense.

Whatever. I'm still pumped for this tourney. So many good matchups.

I don't think that's how the selection committee does it, the old dude from the committee said that Missouri was 8 overall. Maybe they take location into consideration?

Because they actually interviewed the committee head and he said Mizzou was the 8. So they were just discussing why that could have been.

I think they did a phenomenal job except for California.

13-5 in a bad bad bad bad bad conference.
Wins vs. Top 50: NONE
Wins vs. 51-150 9-4
Wins vs. 151+: 15-2

LOL California is going to haunt my dreams forever. Put Drexel in. Put Oral Roberts in. Put anyone in over motherfucking California.

i disagree man. You have to look at everything. Like i said...i ranked all bubble teams by RPI, SOS, SOS n conference, W% v top 50, W% v top 100, and factor in losses against bad teams, and road/neutral wins against top 150. Here's what Cal had to offer

vs top 50 - bottom of the list
v top 100 - near top of the list (i know that all the wins were from 51-150, but still that's a lot)
sos and ncsos - in the middle
bad losses - 1
and what i think put them over the edge over other bubble teams - 5 road/neutral wins against top 150

I guess they didn't want to put them with Kentucky and possibly have them meet in St. Louis. Missouri shouldn't have been #8 though, so I guess it worked out fine in the end.

EDIT: nvm

Uhm...they're an okay team that made the tournament after everyone pretty much figured they'd make the tournament? Am I forgetting anything?

Jay Bilas just said "I think Cal was misseeded, they should have been in way more easily, they were underseeded."

I just cannot agree with it. I refuse to believe California is more deserving of Drexel or even Washington at this point!

And I don't disagree with Iona, even if it's the sole reason why Seton Hall probably missed out.
