RE: Biggest snubs
Right on. Lost 2 games all year when healthy (I love how this is an excuse for P5's but completely sealed for midmajors). 6 losses total, top 10 kenpom defense, 17-1 in MVC. Switch Illinois St with Kansas St. KSU went 2 games below .500 in BXII. You can make an exception for sub-.500 if something extraordinary happened non-conference to make up for it. KSU's noncon SOS was an extraordinary......228!

Anyone else notice how the top 4 midmajors (Wichita/Saint Mary's/VCU/Dayton) all got matched up to play each other Round 1? Must be magic.

RE: Biggest snubs
Illinois State, and the committee needs to knock off some this rubbish when they dig into the 50's or higher for some of these schools.

The same RPI that thinks well of Vandy and it's garbage record thought high of ISU. The SOS thing is such a double-dip and it clearly favors the majors.

I really thought one of the trio of ISU, Monmouth, and UTA were gonna get the nod. I am concerned with the integrity of the committee. Not only going nuts on their own, but seeding everyone else like crud? Wow, how big of you to give Gonzaga a top line... why on earth is SMU a 6?

If it isn't obvious by now this is a cash grab, and that non-majors don't have a spot here...

This might be the most self-serving committee rotation yet.

The 7 seeds: 2 from Power 6 conferences and 2 from elsewhere.

Ditto for the 10 seeds.

The odds of the 7/10 match-ups being the way they were if you had a completely random draw (2 Power 6 match-ups and 2 non-Power 6 match-ups)?

1 in 6.

Not quite the same odds as a meteor hitting your house, but it's definitely suspicious.

This...but actually a 12 seed is a good spot to advance...I think a 10 or 11 seed are even better. MTSU IMHO was probably a 12...but so was Vandy.
