    Ok, we need something new to talk about.....


    In your mind, which team should have received a bid and didn't and which team received a bid that shouldn't.


    I vote for Utah State

    Utah State deserved a bid far more than Air Force. Oklahoma State deserved St. Joe's #1 seed.

    I think OSU should have had #1 seed however I disagree on Air Force, they belong in the tournament. Those boys accomplished something this season that Air Force never does, not only a winning record, but they won the 7th ranked conference in the Nation.

    Plus they are a Service Academy, I think sometimes they should get special treatment.

    What was the highest RPI rating to fail to make the tournament?

    While I think it is great that they have accomplished something like that like having a great record, and winning the regular season conf. title, I still feel that Utah State with a 25-3 record and RPI of 39 deserves to be in over a 22-6 AFA team with a RPI of 58.

    Did Utah St deserve one over Colorado? A Colorado team that won 10 games in the Big 12 conference?

    If Colorado hadn't of blown that 13 point lead against a bad Iowa St. team then they would've been in the tourney.

    so LSU is the best of the lot according to RPI not to be in. Talk about tough luck.
