    Saw that this morning and could only shake my head. Has anyone else besides Gonzaga looked as dominant as USC last night? Maybe Alabama or Oregon? This ESPN writer is a tool.

    The Pac12 has turned into a second rate conference past few years.
    But in June a new administration will come in.
    Then perhaps the Pac12 can return to being a power conference.

    I understand that the last two games can't completely override the entire regular season, but they have to count for something. Michigan is still a No. 1? Why? Because they beat some Big Ten teams in wins that clearly mean very little anymore?

    If you're going to reseed this thing, at least show some creativity. I'd say USC and Oregon have two of the three most impressive wins in the tournament. Why not have them a 1 and 2 seed in this, or at least both No. 2? And having both Syracuse and Oral Roberts ahead of all four Pac-12 teams is ridiculous.

    Erik, what is the point of re-seeding? It’s not like the teams are playing different teams based on the new seeding are they? Thx!

    To give these ESPN assholes something to do and for us to complain about. These media companies removed their comments sections so they can write any piece of shit and not be held directly accountable to the reader.

    Just a writing exercise and way to draw eyes to the site. But how do you have a league perform the way the Pac-12 has with the wins it has and just slot everybody down at the bottom. Why bother writing a "reseeding" story if you aren't really reseeding anybody but just pretty much moving everybody up to take the places of the 1s, 2s, and 3s that have lost?

    ESPN doesn’t know what to do without a North (Big10) vs South (SEC) narrative. One consistent theme from ESPN’s standpoint: the Pac12 having success is inconvenient.

    It reminds me of the media's favoritism for the Dem's. We're the Republicans.

    That 945 ET start time doesn’t do it for Pac12 fans in the East coast.
    This is a big game and shouldn’t be put at a late night spot when people have to work the next day.
    Should have been 2 hrs earlier so all fans can watch it in comfort.

    Most of the national articles I read the morning after were extremely complimentary of the Pac-12 and pointed out that we have twice as many teams in the Sweet-16 than any other conference.

    With Oregon and USC meeting next...the Pac-12 is "guaranteed" at least one spot in the Elite-8. So the writer might want to rethink having all four teams ranked at the bottom.

    He is announcing to the world that he is a lazy writer and is just phoning it in.
