    The letter mentions Hampton's RPI of 63, better than some higher-seeded teams, and a comparably better road record (13-3) and strength of schedule (271). The letter cites teams such as Navy, a 15th seed despite an RPI of 184 and strength of schedule of 278, and No. 12 seed San Diego State, with an RPI of 93 and a strength of schedule of 306, among others. The letter also includes a chart comparing HU's credentials with 12 other schools, seeded from 15th to 12th.

    Glad they are standing up for themselves. You have to let these folks in KKK land know how you feel.

    Is anybody EVER happy with the selection committee? LOL. I thought I read somewhere were an undefeated team was slotted as a No. 16 seed on the women's side back in the day. I guess the selection committee is the gift that keeps on giving.

    It makes a big difference because if they receive a 13 or 14 seed it would be much easier to beat a Purdue or Miami than it would be to beat a Stanford or Baylor.

    When we saw that at our watch party we were very surprised. Knew Hampton deserved a better seeding than that.

    I know this'll never happen, but I'd like to see this happen..... There are 34 automatic bids to the tourney. Take those 34 and rand them 1-34. Then rank the 'at large' bids 35-68. You'd have some ridiculously interesting matchups. But that'll keep the smaller conference champs from always having to play in the 'play-in' games....


    Just my $0.02

    That sounds good, but coaches from BCS conferences will argue that they would are being punished for playing in a tougher league compared to their mid-major counterparts.
