No outrage at the 3 seed? I am struggling with KU and Gonzaga being ahead of us. Then we get the honor of being in UK's bracket, to me indicating we were the 4th 3 seed.

I know they were probably trying to get us to play in a certain geographical location, it just seems like we got boned.

That said, we get a chance to beat KU and then set up an elite 8 game with UK.

I think everyone is dumbfounded by the decisions but this has been going on for years so most here expected it it seemed. I am a little pissed off but to win we'd have to beat Kentucky anyways so that's that. On the other side of it I saw someone say they're making it tougher for Kentucky to make it to the final by putting us there... take it as you will.

 

I guess the 3 and 2 seed isn't too much difference but common how is Kansas a 2 instead of us? I'd like to know the criteria because it seems like they're picking from a hat.

Kentucky's region for us befuddles me..I thought we'd be with Nova or Wisconsin

I'm not happy at all about it. ND is the fourth 3 seed. They have a 10 loss oklahoma ahead of them. I think ND is in the toughest region hands down. They definitely got hosed.

With that being said, ND has shown they can play with anyone. So, if they get to the second weekend, I will take it, and they would have a great chance against kansas, or very likely, wichita st.

Is it a for sure thing that ND was the 4th 3 seed? Is that always how it works per say? I viewed it as us playing the worst 2 seed because the committee said eff it, let the 8 and 9 teams battle it out. If we were really the 4th 3 seed that's so disrespectful, but at the same time I think we got a good draw up until Kentucky in the elite 8.

I just don't get it. Is the ACC undervalued vs the Big 12, etc?

 

Hopefully we will have a slight chip now.

 

Is that list actually from the committee though? If it is, it makes no sense. How do those teams jump over ND. I guess you could argue Iowa St., but the other two can't logically be argued. At the same time, I'm not mad about having to play Kansas as I think ND is better. Huge chip on the shoulder if true I think.

I think they got screwed but if ND wants a NC they need to beat kentucky and other great teams. Go irish !! It is BS no doubt

 

I don't even think they got screwed in terms of Kentucky. Like you said, gotta beat teams to win. I think they got screwed in terms of respect. How are they the last 3 seed? lol
