Midwest region overrated, no love for UNC, more bracket thoughts

Tuesday, March 18, 2014

There will always be a few surprise seedings, but rarely have they been as glaring as when North Carolina was revealed as the East region's No. 6 seed. To use just one team for a comparison, there is no way that Saint Louis should get a No. 5 while the Tar Heels get shunted to a No. 6, even if the committee put a great deal of emphasis on UNC's losses to UAB, Wake Forest and Miami (Belmont, which beat the Tar Heels in Chapel Hill in November, proved to be a pretty good team, finishing No. 55 in the RPI.)
