The post that was quoted here has been removedUCLA didn't get a #1, they're #2 behind Kansas. I would've like to see Wisconsin get a #1, since I don't think they've ever had one and they had a better record than North Carolina, who gets seeded high every year. And they gave Ohio State one of only 3 losses and nearly beat them again.
Florida got a #1 because they won the season and the tournament. They have their entire team back from last year, which made them overall #1 because they already have a 'winning formula'.
Drexel should have gotten in. Based purely on record and strength of schedule they were ahead of at least 3 teams (Illinois, Arkansas, and Purdue). Same with Syracuse no doubt.
Yup, pretty terrible bracketing this year. They seem to have over-loaded some of the brackets, too.
