Some of those seedings are questionable. We should not be seeded lower than OSU, Oklahoma, LSU, Maryland, and Georgetown.

Typical P5 bias and disrespect... no way a starting 5 led by arguably the greatest college basketball player of all-time should be a 5 seed. Also, Memphis doesn't make the cut with stars like Penny and Derrick Rose? Rubbish.

Ohio $tate a #3 seed?

Is this a different Ohio $tate than the one that was our b**** two straight years in the championship? I wasn't aware that Archie Griffin played basketball.

6 seeds (one line below us): Louisville, Gonzaga, Marquette, and Texas

This is ridiculous. Louisville should probably be ahead of us. Texas probably shouldn't even be in the bracket. And Gonzaga? Good Lord. They had zero tournament appearances before 1995.

No Temple? Memphis? San Francisco? Utah? UNLV? Kansas State? Even Xavier should be on ahead of a lot of these teams.

2. NC runnerup
3. FF
4. E8
5. S16

Doesn't matter. Even with a great draw, Mick would blow a 20 pt lead.

This team coming back has a chance to make a statement but they HAVE to make it out of the 1st weekend. Anything less and more and more fans will have the "good program" mentality but the "not a contender" will continue growing.

Voting is open and we're getting smeared.

Ridiculous P5 bias. Those people voting for Florida are either homers or are a special kind of dumb***.

That being said, why are Gary Clark and Jason Maxiell listed in the top 5 players in Bearcat history? This is a debacle.

RE: pick the greatest college basketball starting 5 bracket.
Clark isn’t even a top five guy in last thirty years. Maybe top 20. Same for Maxiell. I am not even sure if anyone besides Kenyon or Van Exel would crack the top five from the modern era. Oscar and Twyman are locks, then you have a handful guys that can fill out the rest.

One thing that does drive me crazy in bias towards recent players. I don’t want to sound rude but Clark and Evans were basically elite role players not dominant stars.

Clark didn't score a ton but he was dominant in just about every other aspect of the game.

That is why I called him an elite role player. Guys like Logan and SK were named to multiple first team All American list. I believe if Clark would have scored more UC would have made the Final Four last year and would have been a first team AA.
