    Sorry if this has been discussed, but I'm confused about something.

    How does a team like Tennessee, who didn't win the regular season title, lost in the second round of the tournament, lost to two OOC teams by a combined 25 points, and lost to LSU by 14 points get a number 2 seed; while LSU, who won the regular season title, lost to Florida (a higher ranked team) in the semi-finals, lost to 5 OOC teams by a combined 11 points, and beat Tennessee by 14 points get a number 4 seed?

    That just doesn't add up to me. I'm happy with a number 4 and think we have a legitimate shot at the Sweet 16 against Duke, but WTF?

    It's Pearl's crazy suspenders. They hypnotize.

    It wont. Just one of those things. Like why is Missouri State out with an RPI of 20 and they beat George Mason twice and George Mason is in.

    You mean Hofstra beat GMU twice. Missouri State is a top 20 RPI and should be in.

    And if my aunt had nuts she'd be my uncle. Just because Florida beat Tenn twice doesn't mean Tenn would beat us in fact didn't we handle Tenn by 14. The selection committee needs to be tested for drug use, they handed UCONN the easiest Elite 8 game ever. The whole bottom half of that bracket is terrible.

    I don't understand Tenn as a 2 either. I accept that we slipped from a probable 3 to a 4 by losing to FL. But how do these guys get a 2 with their showing in the SECT?
