How exactly did Duke, the overall #1 seed, get matched up in the second round with George Washington, which entering its conference tournament was 26-1 and the #6 ranked team in the country? I have no idea whether or not George Washington is any good (they sure didn't look good against UNC-Wilmington), but still - they were a top 10 team, and then dropped all the way to a #8 seed because of one loss? That's just not right. This should have been a Sweet 16 game at the earliest, not a second round game. Not that any of those irrational Duke-haters out there will admit it....
update: hey, just because the matchup was unfair doesn't mean I thought Duke was going to lose! Actually, most of the #1 seeds have grounds for complaining... no matter what kind of season they had, Arizona or Kentucky in second round has to be unsettling for a top seed.
..also, I feel like this might be a good time to brag about the ACC. At this moment, ACC teams are undefeated in the tournament, while members of the Big East - inexplicably considered the best conference in the country this year - have been dropping like flies. It's a particularly good time to brag, since if I'm going to invoke a curse and doom the next ACC team playing to humiliating defeat, I'd just as soon it was Carolina. Go George Mason! Make me eat my words! Crush the Tarheels!
.... and.... now THAT's some serious aardvark power! A sweet 16 without UNC... that is sweet indeed!
