There's not a word strong enough that can describe how busted my bracket(s) are right now.

I'm the only one in my bracket who picked Wisconsin to win it all... make this all kind of less exciting for me. If Wisconsin somehow pulls it off, I win.. if they don't.. I won't

That being said, I really want WSU to lose here because I had Kentucky beating them / feel they shouldn't be considered a top seed

They deserved a top seed. They are a really good squad. They made it to the final four last year. They are in no way a fluke.

Kentucky is just playing extremely well here.

Previous years shouldn't matter.... What's impressive about this?

Some mid-majors don't bother me / they play some good teams.. WSU OOC is a joke as well

What's impressive is that they were 35-0 and blew out everyone.

You can hate all you want but that's a damn impressive feat. If they didn't get a #1 seed it would've been a hose job.

They deserved to be where they were and they showed it today. UK is a good team and that was a heavyweight fight right there.

It was a fantastic finish and they lost. Nothing about their season or seeding should be questioned.

Their resume is a lot less impressive than some teams below them. I very rarely pick any upsets, but I was pretty convinced UK would win... They are a good team / deserved a 3 seed.

Their most impressive game all year was 70-61 at home against Tenn... Congrats

A 3 seed would have been quite pathetic. Sorry. Like I said, hate their schedule all you went but they won them all.

You're argument is totally flawed if your only argument is their schedule.

They didn't lose. They CLEARLY deserved a #1 seed and the committee overwhelmingly concurred.

Agree to disagree on this one.

Agree to disagree is right... My last comment is, to me.. how it should be judged is, if you give them exact schedule of any 2 seed... do you think they would do as well as that 2 seed? I don't, therefore they don't deserve 1. But yes, I know I'm in the minority

Iowa St practices have to look like

50% of the time shooting 3 Balls
50% of the time flopping like there is a sniper collective in the nose bleeds.

but seriously, I can't see unc pulling this out without Johnson and isu smacking 50% from beyond the arc.

Also, seeing Fred Hoiberg as a coach makes me feel old. I remember rooting for him when he was at Iowa State. Dude can shoot.

I don't think you are going to get many tears, if UNC loses. Much like Duke.

Clock definitely didn't start properly at 1.6 seconds in the UNC ISU game.

Edit: Refs just explained as much.

Makes Coach K's comments all the more ridiculous, even after his team's loss to a pretty meh Mercer team (that is getting crushed by Tennessee right now)

Virginia didn't look too impressive vs a 16 seed. I wouldn't be surprised, if they lose at this point.
