And the funniest part is the CAA team sent the Final Four team that year. They also got screwed, Hofstra should have been in.

Yes, getting snubbed was tragic and devastating for Missouri State and Hofstra that year. They still haven't made it 11 years later.

2006 might be my favorite March of all time. So much controversy and hype that I remember that year vividly. Memory for most years following it is vague.

Can't think of one.

I had to be reminded about 2008-9 Penn State being one of the few/only 10/20 snubs. They were 10/21.

Last year, the Buckeyes had 21 wins and 11 in conference, and didn't make the tournament. The unbalanced schedule led to them playing a lot of the lower teams twice and better teams once. I'm a Buckeye fan and didn't think that they should've been in the tournament last year.

They only had 19 wins going into the Big Ten tournament, though, 20-13 by the end of it, but, you're right...the conference wins they did have were against the conference's worst. Getting three sketchy losses from Hoophall (with some on their own court) already had them in a bad place...Kentucky in Brooklyn couldn't save that. Once within the conference, Iowa and Michigan weren't enough to push them over. Northwestern wasn't a bad win...but those get negated when that team doesn't make it into the tournament.

Like the 08-09 PSU team, the committee looked below OSU in the conference standings and tapped someone else. Michigan was 20-11 going into the Big Ten tournament, too. A prettier spot to be in, and came out of it 22-12 as a Big Ten tournament semi-finalist.

First game of the collapse last night. More losses to come...culminating in a first round conference tourney loss to the likes of Rutgers.

Northwestern: First Four OUT. 07-coffee3

Rantoul's Big Ten team might singlehandedly spoil the dream season for Chicago's Big Ten team.

Not if they end the season with 7 straight losses.

The Cubs got off the schneid this season, I'd love to see Northwestern do the same.
