Sweet Sixteen

IF only the higher seeded teams won, there there should be 4 #1 seeds and 4 #2 seeds, 4 #3 seeds and 4 #4 seeds left.

Here's the teams left in the Sweet 16..... (Teams in Parentheses are "supposed" to be there.)

(#1 Alabama)
#5 San Diego State

#6 Creighton
#15 Princeton

-----------------------------

(#4 Tennessee)
#9 Florida Atlantic

(#3 Kansas State)
#7 Michigan State

----------------------------

(#1 Houston)
#5 Miami, Florida

(#2 Texas)
(#3 Xavier)

----------------------------

(#4 Connecticut)
#8 Arkansas

(#2 UCLA)
(#3 Gonzaga)



So only 56.25% of the teams left in the Sweet 16 are "supposed" to be there.

Crazy Tournament this year.

Rooting for Princeton and Fairleigh Dickinson to continue their fantastic runs!

Man, I feel like I'm experiencing the Mandela effect.

I just looked at the bracket and all of the sweet 16 teams were in and now that I go back and look it is not the same!

WTH!

Anyway, IF the data is correct.....It has been fixed!

It's still hard to conceive of a sweet sixteen without Duke, UNC, Syracuse, Indiana, Kentucky, Kansas, etc.  Its a new world and I'm loving it.

Sadly, it's become pretty easy to envision a Sweet 16 without UK in it.

This has been a great opening weekend to watch, and quite a bit of underdog success to get the excitement going for the casual fan.

Makes me wish we still had last year's coach and most of last year's team.  We could have won the MVC and beaten Miami and Indiana.  But it never had a chance to happen.  Now who knows when, if ever, we'll make it back into the tournament again.

We'll get there again.

Shoot man we've been better than the rest of the MVC several times lately and that's recruiting in the OVC lol. We finished middle of the pack with a ragtag collection of 12 new scholarship players this year. I ain't skeered a lick.

I love ya smidge. What skeers me is if our collection of players next year will be utilized and developed properly. We did have talent this year in my opinion. Not as much as last year. But, we had some good players. I can think of at least a couple of things that hurt us this year more than the ability and talent level of our players.

You are right again.  I just get discouraged occasionally thinking how close we have been to breaking through to the sweet sixteen so many times, but....(insert key injury, key call, key turnover here).  So many "if only's" and now to see this year's sweet sixteen populated by underdogs sorta bothers me.  
Getting in the tournament is hard.  Yes, you are correct, we will get back again probably sooner than later.  But winning once is hard and winning twice has not been possible for us.  I just can't help but think of what could have been this year.

My sentiments of this season align properly with yours.
