the committee dude (hathaway or whatever his name was) said they put the 2 seeds where they did partially for regional purposes. like, the worst 1 seed and worst 2 seed are in the same bracket - it should be the opposite. i really don't mind kentucky getting the 2nd best 2 seed duke, but i think the committee should have done a better job not putting 4 vs 8 - thats too unfair. also, i am obviously biased, but i don't think you put the defending national champion UCONN who has been inconsistent but has beaten some serious opponents, against the overall 1 seed. give us like, creighton or some ****. although, i guess UCONN had to play us a few years back when they were the 1 seed, and we gave them all they could handle. but they weren't the overall 1 seed, either, IIRC.
i DO think the committee made a good call, putting UK in atlanta, or as its better known in the big blue nation, CATlanta (owing to the fact that each year, the CT was there, and the crowd was as blue as the sky), instead of st louis. definitely benefits UK there. also, if they had put UK there, versus KU potentially, that would have been a massive screw up. you simply can't give the #1 overall seed such a bad situation in their elite 8 game if it goes chalk , and clearly, IMO at least, UNC got that one. otherwise, i felt UK got shafted with their 4 seed (indiana) and 8 seed (uconn) and got a solid 2 seed (although, no UK fan will complain about getting to see UK/Duke in the elite 8, should it happen - which it probably wont). so at least the committee got that 1 thing right for them.
