You may be right. There are 7 teams that were hard to seed in order, and it is hard to argue with what they did, or if they had done it differently. Lots of Huskers were saying that Texas would have been a good region for us, I don't know why one would prefer Texas to Stanford to Wisconsin, they are each really tough outs. I think of the seven top seeded teams, Pitt is the least likely to make it to the final four, but I would have said that even if they had been a top 4 seed with home court throughout.Frankly, I would rather take my chances with winning an Elite 8 in Madison than at Stanford, which is what #6 Pitt will need to do (if they get past Penn State). Pitt fans are saying that the bracket is unfairly biased toward the B1G because they only have 1 loss and were seeded 6th, which sends them on the road trip to Stanford instead of hosting a B1G team.
Plus, separating teams like you've suggested is never a factor in v'ball or in the basketball tourneys.
We shall see. In these last three years of no football bowls, this tournament has been what keeps December interesting.
