the way the selection process is now for the NCAA basketball tourney with the automatic bids and the negative slant the SEC gets from the commitee, I don't see how Auburn will ever make the tourney again. I know the conference is not real strong right now but 3 out of 14 is ridiculous in my opinion. The SEC commisioner should push for expanding the field or to eliminate some of the pathetic small conference entries.
This is what happens when humans are the ones in control of selecting teams.
Just wait until they try to run a football play off.
The only real way to do it in football is conf champions only and keep it to eight teams.
If you cant be honest....whats the point of being anything?
IMNSHO, the NCAA has many issues, but the tourney is something they do well. If a team from the SEC wants to get in they should go out and earn the right to be there by scheduling top flight OoC competition and winning a few.

I agree with you. But how do you have the conf winner being a 12 seed and the conf runner up being a 3 seed? Then they let Mizzou in?? Why?
Just as sick and tired of hearing the "Small schools need a chance"... And I get that...Win your conf tourney and you get in. But how can a team get in that plays in the horizon league but didnt win the conf tourney? Very slanted to say the least.
Lets all be on the same page as well....espn and all their love for small schools is what drives most of this.
I Believe Auburn and Love IT...4 Life!
You should prepare yourself to live with the consequences of your decisions, whatever they may be.
"Get in where you fit in." Life is, Too Short TL;DR
Maybe the SEC teams should try winning more games against decent non-conference competition. The league isn't getting screwed. The league is putting a bad product on the court. Listen, Kentucky is a gold mine for the NCAA in terms of ratings and ticket sales. When they are borderline and don't make the tourney, it's because they shouldn't have made the tourney. We look like chumps for whining. Win more games.
