In women's soccer, a winning record is required for postseason play unless you gain the conference champion slot. In Football, you have to be above .500 for any postseason play. Maybe I missed it, but I don't see any such requirement for Basketball.

OK, so did anyone else watch CBS's tourney selection special. I could have sworn that Seth Davis said at the end that he wanted more "power conference" teams in the tournament. I am not sure if he mis-spoke and meant the opposite, but it seemed a very odd statement considering this is the least amount of "mid-majors" in the tournament in several years.

Also, they showed a breakdown of last six in and their projected first six out. Five of the last six in were from the Big Conferences and I think Four of the 'outs' were little guys. I don't think that is a coincidence. Of course when they interview the guy from the Selection Committee he will never admit it...but I am pretty sure the NCAA is starting to give more preference to the schools with the bigger fan bases...it seems kinda obvious to me.

While I don't necessarily agree with the selections every year, I don't really dwell on it, because really, when was the last time a true bubble team went anywhere IN THE BASKETBALL TOURNAMENT?

I do agree with Goldhelmet, with a tournament there is a true undisputed champion. Of course, it is not always the team that had the 'best' season, but you can't argue with who won a tournament.

Sleep ...awoke from nap.... Mad ....who's the one saying were playing Pacific.....St. Mary's got a raw deal.. but you have to admit their strength of schedule was super duber WEAK. Their losing streak in the season didn't help,neither did the Pilot's in the middle or the two stinkers at the end.That finish pretty much did it to our bid for NIT, and the loss to Northern Colorado,EWU,,,,.

Back to my nap drunken Sleep...Driving to Wyoming on Wednesday....oh well I hope it's not to cold

Mayeb there should be.. That's a pretty bad resume to be playing in any post-season tournament.

One sportswriter who went to one the mock selection sessions the NCAA holds for the media every year said there is no mention of conference affiliation at all until the teams are being sent to sites. But come on: You know who's in what major conference and who's in a smaller one. They must have an idea how many big-conference teams they are picking.

Oregon State in 2007. They won their second straight College World Series. Wink

PPT, if you read my post again, I clearly was looking for only examples in BASKETBALL, nice try.

But, that was a great CWS, as always.

Possible Patty Mills vs. Stephen Curry matchup in the second round. How much you wanna bet that was set up on purpose?

No way. They were just following the principles and procedures to put together a balanced bracket. Or it's the NIT, so they can set up whatever they want. Laughing

At least the NIT is honest about what they do... Not like the racket the NCAA has going...
