I just have a real problem with poor judgment by the selection committee's choice on those who qualify for the ncaa tournament. I really think the selection is flawed by political and preferential selections of teams who really have business qualifying for the NCAA tournament. The iowa Hawkeye's beat Iowa State, Iowa played some high ranked teams and nearly won. The Big Ten is the strongest league in the country therefore any team who ends up with 20 or more wins should be included. I have to admit that special privileges is being given to some of various reasons that I will not put in print, in my heart I know that the committee should be investigated and not by Obama, maybe Clint Eastwood he is fair and speaks the truth.

I have found a very powerful means of getting the attention of political dead beats, and incompetent VIPS and community servants of We The People. I believe the selection committee has passed several better teams in there selection of the NCAA field. I do believe politics, pressure from certain groups interfere with sending the best teams to the tournament. I have to say that a BOYCOTT of college sports may need to implemented by the Fan's/Spectator's. I think people don't care about some of the justifications used by groups who are cheating others just so they can please a few squeaky wheels while allowing the rest of the wagon to quietly rot away. I won't be watching NCAA/College sports, I will add it to my list of Boycotting Hollywood violence and there double standards. I have now for 6 years avoided supporting pro sports, the players are over paid, the owner make to much and the tickets are to high. The players are poor role models, always fighting and show boating and sending the message they are above the good sportsmanship expectation of the fan's. I believe our entire leadership in all levels of fairness in American's lives has allowed certain practices and unjust reasons or excuses to lower the quality of every discipline of our society. The University of Iowa and several others should have been included in the NCAA this year.
