Everything about college sports is rigged. The sooner you realize it the sooner you can find a healthier way to invest your time.

It's about a seasons worth of work not a single tournament. Don't know how you say they are meaningless when teams who wouldn't make the NCAA's get in every year through them.

RE: So conference tournaments are meaningless?
Committee treats conference tournament games and regular-season games the same way. Did you win or lose, how good is the opponent, was it home, away, or neutral court.

It looks like the committee switched Arizona and Oregon based on the Pac-12 tournament final. But those two teams were very close before the game.

Committee obviously didn't think Duke was close enough to UNC to pass them based on the ACC final.

Kansas is 28-4, including 5-1 against other teams that received NCAA tournament top-4 seeds. They kept their #1 seed because they were far enough ahead of the teams that got #2 and 3 seeds.

Kansas State was the last at-large in the field and probably made the tournament because they beat Baylor in the Big 12 tournament, but not because that game was played in the conference tournament. It was because it was their 3rd win of the season over an NCAA top-4 seed.

Everything about college sports is rigged.

It's hard to argue anything about college basketball is rigged against North Carolina and Kansas. 07-coffee3

They aren't meaningless. Michigan's showing in their tournament helped their seeding tremendously. Although...I'll be run out on a rail for admitting this: I think Duke deserved the one seed over UNC.

Oregon's seed was impacted by Chris Boucher's injury. That is a big blow to their chances, and to the Pac-12 having a good tournament. The Committee factored that in a little bit, although they only have a couple games to examine the team without him.
