A little surprising.
I would take the Rick SLU program right now.

They did not punish us for the SH loss.  The committee agreed it was terrible officiating and not a “real” loss?

CBS live guys feel Nova should have had MU's seed, but says MU vs Murray State best first round matchup of the tournament.

And last year they were crowing about the genius that was Tony Bennett and how Virginia was going to win it all.

How did that work out?

I assumed they viewed us and Nova equally. Nova got a decent draw and they play pretty close to home so they get a 6 instead of 5. I though it was logical

I don’t think anyone really expected us to be the top 5 seed after losing 5/6.

I'm not going to really complain but just imagine what they could have had had they not lost 5/6 and stayed as the top 5 seed...tells me the top 3 seed was very likely.

I did, and said as much.  Everyone here is so goddamn negative and reactionary.
We had a great season, had TEN Q1 wins (among the tops in the nation), and went through a slump like many others.

We were the #1 5 seed: this was no surprise to anyone that paid attention.

Anyone have a link to the committee's final S-Curve?  It'd be an interesting study.

Yeah but I will be up front and do NOT like the FSU match up in round two..in that instance would have rather had a #6. You gotta admit FSU's length and size is going to be a problem.

I agree, I think of the 4 seeds, they're the toughest match-up, but considering that we had already played two of the other 4 seeds, it essentially means that we had a 50/50 chance of getting them.  I was actually hoping that they'd get the three and knock Texas Tech back to the 4 (might have happened if they beat Duke yesterday), but no complaining remember. 

People's fear's for the longest time was getting matched up with Duke, and I think everyone agrees that if we play them this year, Wojo will have massively overachieved.

Remember when people were complaining that there was anti-Marquette conspiracy and it wasn't fair that teams like Michigan State weren't dropping farther on the s-curve but if Marquette lost one game we would drop like a rock? This shows that it is just not how it works.

We went 5-5 from the bracket reveal and dropped all of 5 spots on the s-curve. Went from the last three to the top 5. I'll be honest, even I thought we had dropped to the 3rd or 4th 5.

While unlikely, I don't think it's a guarantee that Florida State gets past Vermont. They are a solid low major with tournament experience. Florida State does not travel well for basketball so every fan in the building will likely be pulling for Vermont. With Hamilton's history of tourney flops, the Catamounts could do us a huge solid.

Of course we have to take care of business first.

But...TAMU, you have to admit...dropping 5 spots on the S-curve is two seed lines..that's huge actually. Imagine where they would have been had they won all 5 of those?? AT least the top 3 seed, if not the last 2 seed.

LSU shoulda probably dropped even with their resume but that’s really my only gripe.

Pretty good job by the committee this year. Don’t see anything that’s way out of left field.

Michigan State has a legitimate gripe being in Duke's region I think
