Personally, I'd have listed Syracuse as the 3rd #1 with West Virginia as the 4th #1 and Duke as the top #2. But then again, they're all fairly close so I can see arguments for any order amongst those three. In the end, the committee has to make a choice and the current setup is apparently the direction they chose to go.
Individual matchups are what people should be more concerned about anyway, not necessarily the name of the school on the opposing jersey. Whether you're a top seed or a two seed, if you run into a team in the second round or Sweet 16 that matches up well against you, you're in trouble before even thinking about the Elite 8.

Re: Apologies for this idiot's ramblings
• Xavier is coached by a rookie who got his job only because his predecessors bail out for bigger paychecks as soon as they can. Chris Mack's salary is probably supplemented by free Skyline chili. Friday, for the first time, he'll be a head coach in an NCAA tournament game.
He'll be facing Tubby Smith, who makes millions of dollars a year and has taken four programs to the NCAA tournament. In fact, he's taken four programs to the tournament at least twice, and he won it all with Kentucky in 1998.
Let's hope Tubby The Titan doesn't allow himself, or his team, to pretend to be overmatched in this game.
And his record for overacheiving in the tournament is stellar, ask Kentucky fans, they were quite upset when he left as I remember
The Gophers play in a power conference, the Big Ten. Xavier plays in the Atlantic 10.
And the Big 10 has Indiana who couldn't beat anyone, oh wait they beat Minnesota
• The Gophers' key players all participated in the NCAA tournament last year. Xavier's best player, Jordan Crawford, is a transfer from Indiana.
Perhaps the dumbest argument of them all, Jordan Crawford has as much experience as the rest of the Gophers since his Indiana team lost in the 1st round of the 2008 tournament. 7 of the top 8 guys in the Muskie's rotation are sophomores or older which means they all have MORE experience than Minnesota because last year's team went to the Sweet Sixteen.
When people say that I don’t know what I’m talking about when it comes to sports or writing, I think: Man, you should see me in the rest of my life.
The Rally Onion wants 150 fans before Opening Day.
We heard it all from the Wisconsin camp before Xavier throttled them in the second round last year. I think this author just reused the same articles and changed some of the names.
