|Bracket is a racket|
March Madness is getting even more maddening.
How else do you explain Mississippi State not getting to the Big Dance.
State took No. 1 seed Kentucky to overtime twice this season, including in the SEC Tournament championship game.
So what happens, State doesn't get in because they say they look at the whole season.
So why do you tournament champions get automatic bids?
There is no way Morgan State, East Tennessee State, Arkansas-Pine Bluff, Winthrop, Robert Morris, North Texas, Vermont or Lehigh could hang with the Wildcats.
Yet, they are all getting the chance to play for a national championship.
I'm not saying Mississippi State did deserve to get in (although I would argue they did), but they certainly were more worthy than a dozen of the teams in the field.
And please don't add more teams.
The selection committee is having a hard enough time as it is.
Kansas in the No. 1 seed in the Midwest and I don't see anyone stopping them from getting to the Final Four, although you better watch out for Georgetown.
In the West, Syracuse is sitting at the top, but I believe they will be the first No. 1 seed to go.
I believe Gonzaga or Butler will do the honors.
But look for Pittsburgh to be the surprise team in the dance in Indianapolis.
In the South, Duke is the No. 1 seed, but the Dukies better watch out for Purdue.
I do believe Coach K gets back to the big dance, but they will not make it to the final two.
New Orleans is hosting Notre Dame against Old Dominion and Baylor against Sam Houston in the South. If No. 3 seed Baylor makes it to the South finals, that game will be in Houston, which would give the Bears a bit of an advantage unless they are playing Duke. Nothing like those Cameron Crazies.
Kentucky will face a tough second-round opponent in Texas and dangerous Wisconsin awaits the Cats.
I believe the Badgers will be the surprise team out of the East.
It's been a wacky season for college basketball, which probably means all four No. 1 seeds will end up in Indianapolis.
I'm going with the Jayhawks to win it all. But I still have a bad taste in my mouth from the selection process.
