I really don't think the position of the seeding is that big of a deal.. sure, it might screw you out of a Sweet Sixteen, but in general I don't think it really produces a "cheap" champion. Any team that gets to the final Four has to be good.
Well, it would be sudden death once they got to the loser's bracket, right?
I agree with you on the seeding, though. With upsets factored in, very often the seeds are a mess and irrelevant by the time they get to the round of 16. On the other hand, teams play four months of basketball for those seeds.
