NCAA Selection Committee constructs perfect bracket

Well it has taken 77 years, but the NCAA Selection Committee finally got it right.

For the first time in tournament history the NCAA Man’s Division I Basketball brackets were announced and there was not a complaint by a single person.

Pointing out the mistakes of the committee as they put together a 68 team bracket has become as much of a tradition as March Madness itself, but on Sunday that came to a grinding halt.

“They finally did it.” praised ESPN pundit Joe Lunardi. “Syracuse and Tulsa getting in? Monmouth and St. Mary’s being left out. Of course Oregon should be a No. 1 seed, and where else would Virginia be, but right ahead of Michigan State? I can’t believe it, but they finally got it all right.”

Senior college basketball analyst Andy Katz echoed the sentiment.

“Every year it seems like we have problems with the way that this tournament is seeded. I mean let’s face it, there are 68 teams so there is bound to be some disagreements, but this year they finally nailed it. No complaints whatsoever from me.”

CBS basketball commentator Doug Gottleib agreed. “For years we have believed that the committee has their own agenda when seeding these tournaments. But Duke playing UNC-Wilmington in the first round? The chance of Texas vs. Texas A&M or maybe Kentucky against Indiana in the second round? We’ve always thought that these were made for television match-ups. I think it is clear this year that these things just take place and it is all by chance.”

Gottleib continued. “It really is remarkable that they did such a great job. My hat is off to them. I never thought I would see the day that we saw a perfect bracket. But this is it. Next, you’ll be telling me the Chicago Cubs have a chance to win the World Series.”
