Before I hear any more from Cuse fans that they “deserved” to make it, maybe your team should win more than two games away from home and then we can talk!

OR, I got a really constructive idea for you… Take a day off from work, go to your nearest Metropolitan area, and protest with #NotMyBracket signs!! I’m pretty sure that’s how this country works now, right??

Regardless, I think the committee did pretty well. Sure there are some teams ranked a little too high (Minnesota), some teams a little too low (Wichita St), but honestly, I say they did fine.

Here’s my biggest qualm: Why did they have to put Notre Dame and Bucknell in the bracket RIGHT NEXT TO EACH OTHER??

We all know that the Bucknell Bison are not a team to sleep on. And I saw West Virginia play this weekend during their conference tourney, and they aren’t all that good. Do I think Bucknell is perfect? No, they are a #13 seed and deservedly so. BUT, they can definitely take this West Virginia team down.

I was excited to potentially root for a Sweet 16 berth for my boys from Lewisberg, PA until I saw Round 2 would include a match-up with the Fighting Irish most likely…

Why did the committee have to do me like that? Now, I’m forced to pick a side and that sucks. I want my cake and I wanna eat it too dammit!!

Notre Dame offers a real chance to go deep in the tourney – and I really do believe that. Matt Farrell is the real deal with leadership skills that take teams far… However, Bucknell has John Griffin as assistant coach.

Heart vs brain here. I know who I’ll be rooting for regardless of what I put on my bracket…

Whatever, if that’s my biggest problem with how they did, I’d say they did alright. Good work committee, proud of you.
