    Good stuff, today is one of the best days of the year.

    I missed one just like you but I had in Va Tech and Florida out.

    None of the schools can really complain though.

    The seeding surprised me, I dont like it seems like all the midmajors are matched up against each other. Temple got screwed, they are a 3 not a 5 and were matchup with a very tough 12 in Cornell.

    I thought Cal and Notre Dame were way overseeded and cant see howt Fla got a 10 when they were lucky to even make the tourney

    I still think a lot of it has to do with reputation, whether it's the league or a team's pedigree. Temple should definitely have been a 4 seed or even a three but the A-10 still isn't a respected league; Florida may still be living off its two national titles and Notre Dame is, well, Notre Dame. And we all know teams like Duke will always get special attention.

    Amen on Temple, RUjock. Awful seeding. Same for Cal at an 8. And the committee was lazy, breaking the long-standing rule of keeping teams from the same conference away from each other until the elite eight.

    I like the inclusion of Utah State and UTEP, but most of the draw was disappointing. I give the committee a C.

    I do not like that they seemed to pit most of the midmajors against each other. Part of the attraction is to see the smaller schools take on the big schools. What fun is Butler/UTEP or Cornell/Temple.

    I do think that Siena over Purdue is the obvious upset pick right now but is it too obvious?
