    HOW DOES PENN STATE GET SEEDED AND WEST VIRGINIA DOES NOT?

    No Ric, they play the first round regionally so as to reduce the travel expense. The effect is that good teams in the same area of the country knock themselves off in the early rounds.

    Again, I cannot for the life of me figure out why UNC was awarded #1 seed; 2, 3, 4 maybe!!!
