I agree. I'm an OSU fan and while I hate being out of the tourney its just a reminder that college basketball has it right and college football has it wrong. VCU and Butler in the final 4? No number one seeds? If basketball had a BCS, it would have been OSU vs Kansas in the finals, and Kentucky/VCU/Butler would not have even been in the conversation.
If This was college football.... VCU and Butler would be playing in the Thanks for coming but you are not good enough because we say so Bowl
I agree to an extent. The best teams in football are just that -- the best. They would stomp out lesser competition. In basketball there's only 5 players on the floor and 1 player on fire can make the difference in the game.
In football, one player can have a hell of a game, but if 8 don't, they lose to a better team 99% of the time.
BUT -- I still think the BCS is lame.
