The NCAA nearly got it flawless.

Chuck didn't say it, but Twitter knew why Young - I mean, the Sooners - made it in over better teams. Miami went 11-7 in the ACC and was a top-25 team, so they couldn't be left out either.

This past weekend, the Sooner offense was cranked up again, producing 35 runs in five wins over in, and twice each over SC and Illinois State. Either they would be one of the last four teams in, or they would be one of the first four out.

"If you look at their wins, and again we look at the teams in the tournament, we look at the caliber of wins that a team has and they had a couple of outstanding wins early", NCAA Division I Men's Basketball Committee Chair Bruce Rasmussen said. "Our team worked so hard just to get an opportunity to have a chance to do this".

Unless, of course, you're the selection committee and you value things like the RPI and SOS.

With a win, SU would most likely get a rematch with one-seed Mississippi State, who the Orange fell to 76-65 in December. Their SOS is 16th.

Not having Middle Tennessee in the NCAA Tournament is wrong for a lot of wrongs. That's where the logic has to lie. Saint Mary's didn't stand out on a spreadsheet, but they were undeniable on the court.

There were some pretty controversial snubs in this year's NCAA Tournament bracket, and now there's speculation that schools like the University of Southern California and Oklahoma State were left out of the tournament due to their links to a major FBI investigation into corruption in college basketball. It is what it is.
