when they schedule a great mid to play another great mid in the 1st round.Yes, this upsets me as well. Much like scheduling Boise State to play TCU in the BCS, basketball is guilty of it as well. I wish I could say it just turns out that way, but I am sure it's not always accidental. I don't think they want hot mid-major teams roaming the tournamant, upsetting the Royals. So why not have them eliminate each other when possible.
