I don't know if you can read that (you can click the picture if you can't), but it shows the picks of the ESPN "experts." Between Jay Bilas, Pat Forde, Andy Katz, and Dick Vitale, they have one Final Four team. ONE. I know it was a fairly unpredictable tourney, but I have more Final Four teams left than Jay Bilas, Pat Forde, and Andy Katz combined. That's sad.
Another thing I laughed at, Jay Bilas wrote an article today (need Insider) titled "Getting in means much more than seeding." Jay Bilas felt so strongly about this issue that he had to write a whole article saying that just getting into the Tournament in more important than where you are seeded. As if that was in doubt. Geez Jay, you're telling me that if you want to advance deep into the Tournament, actually getting in is more important than where you're seeded? Did you come up with all of this by yourself? For good measure, here's a quote:
"Being selected for inclusion in the tournament is far more important than seeding."
Does Bilas think this is some type of revolutionary idea? That if you want to make a run in the Tournament you have to get in first? I really do like Jay Bilas, but I had to laugh when I read this. Maybe I'm just missing the hidden meaning here. Anyone have any idea what it is?
