It's less about Nebraska being put where they are, and more about Louisville still keeping that #1 seed with their tournament performance.

What does Louisville being number have to do with Nebraska being seeded to high.

The matchup we would have to face if we win our first round.

 

This whole "everyone is against us" defeatest attitude is self-inflicted. NCAA doesn't care about us one way or another.

You miss the whole point  We have a sweet 16 caliber team if we were seeded correctly as a 6 and got a good 3 seed draw

I feel very bad for Louisville and Gonzaga, as I doubt they truly understand how tough their draw is.  

 

To add to that, it was the #7 ACC seeded Miami team who beat Louisville in the ACC tournament.

 

Miami is seeded #8 in the NCAA tournament. Same as us. So, why not? Let's do it!

Yeah, understood. Agree it's not an ideal draw whatsoever. And get the frustration.

 

I guess I had phased out the "well that sucks" phase and just exited we have a chance to play in mid-March. Valid point though.

 

Edit: adding in that I was excited to not be in the South Carolina, UConn (or NC State), and Stanford brackets. Which was a win in-and-of-itself for me.

I was hoping for Ames as Louisville is further than I would like to travel.  Gonzaga will be a tough test and we will have to play our best to even have a shot at the Cardinals. 

However, Louisville is probably the best #1 for us to go against.  Regardless, it will be an important experience for our young team.

Eliminate 1-2 more of those bad losses and we may have been. Unfortunately the seeding committee doesn’t take into account scandals resulting in losses to bottom tier Big 10 teams.

I'm not sure where we actually fall...but as a #8 seed it's between #29-#32. A 6 seed would put us around #21-24.

 

The teams from #21 to #32 are as follows:

 

6 Seed

Georgia: #26 NET, 20-9, 7-3 Road, 2-1 Neutral, 11-5 Home, SEC 2nd Round

Kentucky: #34 NET, 19-11, 4-6 Road, 4-0 Neutral, 11-5 Home, SEC Champion

Ohio St.: #31 NET, 23-6, 8-3 Road, 1-1 Neutral, 14-2 Home, Big Ten Semifinals

BYU: #11 NET, 26-3, 9-2 Road, 3-1 Neutral, 14-0 Home, WCC Runner-Up

 

7 seed

Colorado: #29 NET, 22-8, 7-4 Road, 2-1 Neutral, 13-3 Home, Pac-12 Semifinal

UCF: #15 NET, 25-3, 9-2 Road, 5-0 Neutral, 11-1 Home, AAC Champion

Utah: #27 NET, 20-11, 5-5 Road, 4-2 Neutral, 11-4 Home, Pac-12 Runner-Up

Ole Miss: #24 NET, 23-8, 9-2 Road, 4-1 Neutral, 10-5 Home, SEC Semifinal

 

8 seed

Miami (FL): #42 NET, 20-12, 5-5 Road, 3-3 Neutral, 12-4 Home, ACC Runner-Up

Washington St.: #58 NET, 19-10, 7-6 Road, 1-2 Neutral, 11-2 Home, Pac-12 Quarterfinals

Kansas: #38 NET, 20-9, 7-3 Road, 1-2 Neutral, 12-4 Home, Big 12 Quarterfinals

Nebraska: #23 NET, 24-8, 5-6 Road, 3-1 Neutral, 16-1 Home, Big Ten Semifinal

Disappointed in some ways but not surprised to get a seed lower than a seven.  I guess if any of us thought a 6 was realistic (I probably fall in that category) must feel a little delusional now.  I'm used to a NU team I follow getting lower than expected.  I suppose they might have held the PSU loss against us more than I thought.  That said, Let's give it our all and see what happens!  GBR!!  🏀 🌽

didn't think they would drop to an 8, but, I've seen enough selection shows where one shouldn't be shocked. 

haven't seen Zags play, but, i would think 8/9 is more often a toss up.

 

well..........97.3theticket "early morning" came right out and said it "Nebraska got screwed"!
