The NCAA revealed the brackets for the 2010 Basketball Tournament with no surprises.
As usual, teams with 20 plus wins from the smaller conferences are seeded 40 to 65. This was done to allow teams from the power conferences (with fewer than 18 wins, a losing conference record, and an early exit in their own conference tournament) to be seeded in the 20 to 39 positions.
The NCAA also announced that they expect the smallest sixteen conferences to be involved in the 64-65 Play in Game next year, as "the current structure keeps us from adding in all of the teams from the Big East and ACC."
As usual, the Western Regional also included only two teams from the actual west. Funny, but it seems that the winners from the Pac-10, Mountain West, Western Athletic Conference, Big Sky, Big West, Great West, Summitt League, and West Coast Athletic Conference should all be playing closer to home.
As usual, no team with 18 wins from power conferences were not included, while over fifteen teams from non-power conferences with over 20 wins will stay home.
As usual, talking heads like Dick Vitale were completely annoying and over 80% of American viewers hit the mute button when he was on their television.
Yep, no surprises this year.
Note: this story was written eight hours before the actual selections and brackets were announced. Since this is how it always works, it wasn't hard to project what would happen.
