First of all, only two or four teams have gripes, Florida and Ohio State, as the finalists from last year should have gotten more consideration. To see someone repeat or have the chance to adds to the intrigue of the tournament.
The other two teams that could or should have gotten in are Arizona State and Illinois State. Arizona State swept Arizona. Arizona has 14 losses, case closed, I don't care how tough their schedule was, that's too bad. Kentucky and Arizona got in on reputation.
Kentucky and their fans are a bunch of spoiled Southerners who don't belong in this tournament.
Good job by the Illini in reaching the Big 10 title game. I know they lost, but they did better than expected.
Memo to Northwestern and DePaul, your teams stink and your coaches are MAJOR LEAGUE LOSERS. Fire them NOW!!!
Washington reached the CBI (College Basketball Invitational), a smaller tournament which allows them to say that they made post-season play. Next year is an ENORMOUS year for Romar and the Huskies. I don't want to be worse than those hayseeds in Pullman.
