As you know, we don't cover men's sports here very often, but the Men's Selection Show for the NCAA Tournament was aired last night and dropped a bombshell on the viewing public. The University of Louisville men's team was seeded 4th. in their region and is headed to Orlando to play Manhattan on Thursday.
Fourth. Did the selection committee actually watch any basketball this season?
Did they miss the fact that the Cards won their regular season conference play and the post-season conference tournament in The American?
Virginia did both in the ACC. They got a #1 seed in their region.
It was all the talking heads on CBS and ESPN could talk about. And, the midwest bracket...where the Cards were placed...is no pushover...with Wichita State ranked #1 and UK and Duke placed in it.
The committee says they look at the overall picture, not just at the end of the season...where the Cards were arguably the hottest team in men's college basketball.
One would surmise whether the collection of imbeciles, feeble-minded and blind that made the choice saw anything at all.
Oh...add this. The head of the selection committee is the AD at Wake Forest. Maybe a pre-conference entry salvo being fired across the Cardinal bow? Yep...now we know how Virginia got that #1 seed. Those ACC boys look out for each other.
