    These brackets have so much ACC and SEC bias that it has become a joke.

    This selection process certainly is a joke - why have the RPIs if you're not going to follow them. It would be nice if the NCAA selection committees were more transparent, but I'm sure that will never happen because it's not what the old boy networks do!
