Ohio State, Your Not the Overall #1 Seed [David Stefanini]

Your team has been the number one ranked team in the nation for the better part of the second half of the season.

Your team won their final 17 games of the season to enter the tournament.

You man-handled the #3 seed in the country Wisconsin in your Conference Title Game.

Your team has a freshman phenom who is going to be one of the top two picks in the upcoming NBA Draft.

You are Ohio State and the NCAA committee has decided you should not be the #1 overall seed in the NCAA Tournament. That honor goes to a Florida team who before this week lost 3 out of 4 games. Florida definitely has the talent to be a #1 seed and they are the defending champs, but can someone tell me what Ohio State did to fall down from the #1 seed in the nation? They didn't lose, and they looked dominant most of the time. But hey, these are the same people who left out a Syracuse team who won 10 games in the Big East and 20+ games on the regular season, so for them to make a questionable decision is not unusual.
