Wake should have beaten out Washington IMO. Still hoping Iowa will make it :-o

Oh also, Louisville got screwed getting a 4 seed and possibly having to play a hot GT team in the 2nd round....

I agree that Louisville got screwed. They should have been no worse than a three seed, and I think they could have been a two seed.

UW as a number one was surprising, but I don't think its unwarranted. (of course i could be a little biased, check out the new avatar).

Luoisville is the first one to pop up that got screwed.

Agreed I think here you have a case of a school like gonzaga who has a HAD a nice run and is a decent school, but they are no where near what they have been in the past. They still have Turiaf (who is a monster) but they got no one to get him the ball in the past they have always had a guard, no longer is this the case
