Re: 2011 NCAA Tournament.
A&M was unlucky that Florida decided to have a great SEC tournament and that Baylor lost to Oklahoma in the Big 12 tournament (and A&M lost a chance to beat Baylor). If you look at the computer rankings for May 2, you see that Florida and A&M are very close.
1 80.33 University of Virginia
2 73.12 University of Southern California
3 71.35 University of Tennessee
4 70.85 Ohio State University
5 63.30 Baylor University
6 62.04 University of Georgia
7 60.26 Stanford University
8 58.27 University of Florida
9 58.13 Texas A&M University
10 56.75 University of Kentucky
Not to say that Florida doesn't deserve the #7 seed or anything, but A&M just needed to turn it on a little bit sooner.
