    Can someone please explain to me how we are 17th in this poll, and somehow a 6 seed??? Shouldn’t the 17th ranked team in the country be seeded as a 5 seed?

    Illinois is not even ranked in this poll and they are a 5 seed. And don’t tell me the Big 10 is better than the Pac 10.

    Does ranking matter anymore at this point?

    Who still thinks I am crazy for saying UCLA was overrated and will not get out of the Second Round of the NCAA’s? It is quite possible that I was giving them more credit than they deserve. The Bruins will be lucky to beat VCU.

    Please prove me wrong Bruins!!!!!!!!

    I was right about Collison being overrated as well. DC has been exposed as a fraud. He was carried by Aaron, Jordan, Luc, KLove, Russell, and company. In all likelihood we will only have to see him play one or two more games.

    Prove me wrong Darren!!!!!

    Have you watched the Bruins play this year? The question you should have asked is “How could the Bruins be ranked in the Top 25 without beating one good team all year?”

    The best team the Bruins beat was UW at Pauley. UW is a Sweet 16 team at best and only because of a favorable draw.

    I’d be much more worried about VCU if it didn’t seem like everyone is picking them to win.
