    OK, time to start whining. The Badgers go into the Big 10 tournament ranked number 10 in the nation, with an RPI of 17. They blow out Illinois in the championship, and are a 6th seed? What in the world? :mad:

    I'm amazed that Utah State did not get in. I guess the selection committee means business about strength of schedule.

    I was amazed Utah State didnt get in either, I think they should have gotten in over Air Force.

    Give me a break? The BIG NAME leagues get 4-6 entries and the Mt West get three?

    Don't eliminate Air Force - think they will be a sleeper. They DOMINATED the conference out here. I'm picking them to eliminate NC and the Texas!

    Anyone joining the ESPN Tourny Challenge? We've enjoyed NASCAR - why not try it.

    Log in (or create an entry)

    Fighting Fundys is the name of our group. Make your picks and we will see how well we do!

    password = translations

    And I'm picking St Jo to be the first #1 team to go down in flames (pun intended).

    Utah State didn't deserve to get in they lost to a nobody school Cal-State Northridge in the second round after getting a buy. The Big West is a very weak conference, ranked 18th overall. They get only one team, Pacific, because that is what they deserve.

    UTEP, which probably took Utah States spot, was conference co-champ of the WAC which is ranked 10th overall and lost in the finals of the WAC tourny to Nevada the other co-champion. Of note, Utah State is moving to the WAC in 2005, they know the Big West is weak.

    Lesson that Alabama learned and now Utah State is learning, strength of schedule counts. If you are in a weak conference, a loss to a top team is better then a win against a cupcake.

    The question is why four teams from the A-10?

    Hey everyone, I entered another entry to the Fundys called coin, and that's exactly what it is!

    I flipped a coin for each game since I have been told how so many peoples brackets are beaten this way (including mine)

    Anyway check it out, I don't think it will do very well....... [​IMG]

    The coin flip thing probably resulted in a interesting bracket, but it will probably beat all of us, unless it picked a team like Florida A&M to win it all. :D I filled out all five brackets that the ESPN site allows, but I only entered one of them. No sense in humiliating myself more than once. [​IMG]

    The coin did have Fl. A&M beating Kentucky! Not to mention Alabama St. beating Duke.
