I have no problem with Louisville as #1 seed. They earned it, winning both the Big East regular season and tournament. What’s ironic is that because the committee no longer uses the “S” curve, your Cards are in what is by far the toughest bracket. They’d have been far better off getting seeded 2,3, or even 4..
I think you are exactly right. It would have been just as good for us to get a # 2 seed this particular season. We are working on our “revenge tour” now: We avenged losses to Villanova, Notre Dame and Syracuse in the Big East tournament. Now it would be complete if we meet and defeat Duke in the elite eight round.
I actually think Louisville has one of the easier brackets. If you can get past the names on the uniforms, Duke and Michigan State have not impressed me at all. Saint Louis has been impressive lately, but I don’t know if they have enough to get past UL.
