  1. Hey man, I think this is an oversight (happens to me sometimes as well), but you left Virginia out. Convincing OOC win vs #4 seed Michigan, win vs top 100 Miami, two wins vs on the road against top 100 OOC opponents. The loss to TCU will hurt them a little, but they've shown a willingness to go on the road and play solid teams out of conference and performed well. The committee looks highly on that.

  4. lol no virginia. what an idiot

  5. Would you call the guy an idiot if you saw him on the street? It's probably an error. I've done the same with my bracketology before...sometimes a second set of eyes is needed to proofread.
