Dear CBS/Turner: This Is a Bad Selection Show Idea

Dear CBS/Turner: This Is a Bad Selection Show Idea”

March Madness is the one time of the year that everyone, except for the few people that actually are interested, pretends like they are passionate about college basketball.

Like any team, MI has its Achilles heel, but the versatile threats that Beilein has at his disposal night in and night out should frighten any team going up against the Wolverines over the next couple weeks.

Not every win will be flawless. Every region in the tournament gets their own seed for each team which is why there are four seeds for each rank. They'll take that, though.

McManus said he doesn't expect the scandal and NCAA issues to drag down interest in this tournament.

For the WVU men's basketball team, this is a conundrum. "I really liked it", says Marshall, who experienced the same long layoff in the seven years he qualified for the NCAA Tournament while at Winthrop.

We won't do it again this way, and I take responsibility for asking the coaches.

"Michigan's playing really well right now", Rasmussen said. "It wouldn't be the biggest surprise in the world if they got seeded ahead of Michigan State".

"It's tough, that feeling of uncertainty", senior guard Evan Taylor said.

"The teams that we select to make the tournament typically are those eventually selected by the Selection Committee". Most were happy to get some rest. Each conference tournament champion earns an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament. "I'd rather go in on a high than on a low".

CBS Sports and Turner Sports announced Tuesday they intend to begin Sunday's show by unveiling the 68 teams that made the NCAA tournament.

The third-seeded Mountaineers never faced any of the other top six Big East seeds.

For basketball fans, this feature has the potential to be a game-changer for the first two days of the tournament. That was evident in Sunday's title game. This meant that the Mountaineers jumped past Pitt, an NCAA Tournament two-seed, but not Syracuse, a one-seed in the NCAA Tournament.

The Big Ten tournament is a little different this year.

Michigan State enters March Madness with 29-4 record (including the Big Ten Tournament). Wins over Florida State and Virginia on Wednesday and Thursday are nearly must-wins at this point.

Back-up big man Jon Teske scored 14 points to help fifth-seeded MI (28-7) become the first team to repeat since Ohio State in 2010 and '11. Game 6 victor, Court A, 1:30 p.m. ET (CBS Sports) Game 10: Game 7 victor vs. The Wildcats will face the Arizona State-Colorado victor in Thursday's quarterfinals as the only AP Top 25 team in the field.

Even though they went one-and-done while the Mountaineers qualified for the final, both had better NCAA tournament seeds than WVU. That's thanks to an undefeated non-conference record that included wins over Kansas and Xavier.

Michigan State fell to fourth, followed by Duke, Gonzaga and Michigan - which jumped eight spots to No. 7 after beating the Spartans and Purdue to win a second straight Big Ten Tournament title.

In 2010, winning the conference championship benefitted WVU in seeding at the NCAA tournament.

"I knew I didn't want this to be my last game tonight", Garner said. I thought starting [the conference schedule] early was okay, but if you look at our schedules, we've been able to give everybody two-day prep [before games] in 99 percent of the cases. The tournament "didn't really seem to capture much energy" in DC past year.
