To obviate a few hundred inane posts ... please read before posting your displeasure with the NCAA selection process.


You haven't been paying attention to NUProf's math lessons have you? I see the stupidity is starting well before Selection Sunday. :eek:

You played the game.

Really? I thought it was not to penalize teams that made the effort to travel to play a (big) game and then lost. (or was that answer TIC :confused: )
