By now, everyone knows the Texas Longhorns got hosed by the selection committee.
A four seed? Really?
After beating UNC, Michigan State, Kansas at Lawrence, Baylor twice and A&M three times?
Granted, we also lost late in the season to Nebraska, Colorado and Kansas State.
But the complete lack of respect is stunning. I could understand a three seed, although I thought we had done enough for a two seed.
So, now we draw a fairly salty Oakland team. Many people are picking Oakland as a first round upset.
I don’t see that as likely, but things get much tougher after that.
If we’re to make a run at the championship, our most likely path is Oakland, Arizona, Duke, UConn, UNC, Kansas/Pitt.
Damn. That’s tough. Real tough.
So, Texas, you need to use that disrespect and get pissed off. Take that anger and energy, and pound your opponents.
A championship with this draw would be truly epic.
