How can FSU get snubbed and Stanford make the field? The Cardinals won one out of their last five, had blow out losses to Santa Clara and Air Force, and ended the season with an 18-12 record. Oh yeah, no wins over a top ranked team either.

Could not agree more. Dont' forget about Illinois and Old Dominion. FSU had more top 25 wins than any other team in the country not to mention that there 5 loses were all to ACC teams.

Ham is nothing more than an excuse maker. FSU earned the bubble spot and that what happens. The true reality is that this tournament is no where close to the best 65 teams in Division I. There's too many automatic bids etc that make this field a sporadic tournament of 65 teams. They should simply expand it to 128 and end this nonsense. The regular season would still have value for seeding and then the conference tournaments would no longer be necessary. The tourney bid shows spend more time in total on who didn't make it. Syracuse could beat at least 15 teams that made the tourney 10 times in a row, expand the field and end the nonsense.

Are you kidding? Eliminate the conference tournaments? That is part of March Madness! FSU got eliminated in their conference tourney. That is an expanded field. Win and you're in, lose and you're out. One more tourney win and FSU would have made it. Quit your whinning! All you gotta do is win! Just look at it this way, the field was expanded in conference tourney's and you were eliminated in the 2nd round. Whats the difference?

The real reason that FSU wasn't invited is that there wasn't enough money in the NCAA budget to pay for enough security to make sure that the 'Noles didn't steal anything.

Hamilton has been there five years. He needs to start producing. Injuries are part of the game. Results are needed. Not excuses.

FYI- FSU lost to the eventual ACC champ and Big Dance number one seed. That's a pretty tough "second win" for any team-period! There are too many second tier teams that get in just because they're in a conference and teams like FSU get screwed. Illinois should not be in and neither should Arkansas. Yeah, we lost against UNC, but so did Tennessee, Ohio State, Kentucky, and Arizona. The only difference for them is that they didn't lose in the ACC tournament at the end of the season.
