2013-14 Card Chronicle LCPT Quarterfinals: NCAA Tournament Selection Committee Vs. Mike Mayock

New, 138 comments

The last spot in the LCPT Final Four will be decided over the next 24 hours ("Shot at the Night" plays).




--Dealt Louisville a No. 4 seed when the major debate heading into Selection Sunday was whether or not the Cards deserved to be a one seed.

--Also placed Louisville in the toughest region in recent memory, with their arch-rival and perhaps worst matchup in the field just two rounds away.

--Selection Committee chair Ron Wellman said that Louisville "looked like a one seed" and admitted that the Midwest was the toughest region, but never really offered any legitimate justification for either occurrence.

--A tournament which was atrociously seeded overall culminated with a seven and an eight seed playing for the national title, easily the highest combined seeding of any championship game in tournament history.





--Spearheaded the bizarre over-criticism of Teddy Bridgewater in the weeks and months leading up to the NFL Draft.

--Stated concerns about Bridgewater's ability to be the "face of a franchise" after ripping Teddy's "average at best" pro day.

--Used Bridgewater taking three sacks against South Florida as one of his primary concerns while ignoring the fact that only one of those sacks could possibly be attributed to Teddy.

--Said that Bridgewater is the only quarterback in the last 10 or 11 years whose pro day made him go back, look at tape and change his grade.

--Also used the dreaded "lack of an 'it-factor'" justification in his criticism.

I'm very interested to see how this one plays out. You have 24 hours from the time this post publishes.
