ESPN interjects the FBI into Tournament Picks
http://www.espn.com/mens-college-basketb...nt-chances

From the link:

Oklahoma State coach Mike Boynton, whose team didn't make the 68-team field despite beating Kansas twice and West Virginia in Morgantown, wouldn't comment on whether he thought the committee penalized three teams involved in the FBI probe by keeping them out of the tournament: Oklahoma State, USC and Louisville.

"I don't know anything about that," Boynton said. "But I'm disappointed for my kids. I think they proved in Big 12 play that they could compete and beat anyone. The fact that we weren't even in the first four out was surprising."


So the leaking of the FBI information could have cost Conferences MILLIONS of dollars in bias confirmation. Either ESPN is throwing **** against the wall or they are hinting at the destructive force of the leaked FBI allegations. Why would ESPN bring up that subject? Literally throwing salt in a wound or exploring a real fact pattern?

Only USC has a case for inclusion. 89 rpi or 0-11 vs top 50 says more than a thousand words.

Because saying they weren't quite good enough is boring. Conspiracy theories bring an audience.
