    Re: Upset Special-Ohio St knocks off undefeated Illinois

    Apparently, Xavier knocked off undefeated St. Joseph's in their conference tourney last year - I had forgotten that.

    Matta was quoted yesterday as saying that just once, he'd like to experience being the coach of the team everyone wants to knock off, rather than the team doing the knocking.

    One of the guys on ESPN Radio (Mike Greenberg, I think) said this morning that the tournament selection committee pretty much came out and admitted that the Sunday tournament finals had absolutely no bearing on the seedings whatsoever last year. I think that has been the case for several years. A few years ago, UK beat Arkansas to win the SEC Tournament, yet Arkansas kept their #1 seed and UK stayed at a #2. Both Greenberg and Mike Golic agreed that the only way that conference tournaments played on Sunday made a difference was if a team won it that otherwise wasn't going to get in.

    My question is, if so many of these tournaments are so meaningless, why play them? Oh, I remember now...

    Didnt UC get a no 2 seed after they lost in the first round of the C-USA tournament a couple years ago? Of course, they could have been factoring in Kenyon Martins injury as well.

    I listened to Mike and Mike this morning too, they said they figured UNC, Illinois, and Wake were automatic locks for no 1 seeds. The last seed would be decided by how Kentucky, Kansas, and Boston College does in their tournaments.

    You're exactly right, WV. I do recall them saying that those look to be fighting it out for the fourth #1 seed. I still contend that they'll base their decision based on what happens between now and Saturday night, though. Sundays games won't have any bearing.

    What do you think of 14th ranked Washington getting a no 1 seed based more or less on winning the Pac-10 Tournament?

    IMO, this has BCS written all over it.

    I don't think they wanted to have 3 ACC teams as #1 seeds.
    The Rally Onion wants 150 fans before Opening Day.
