The Start is Important but the Finish Creates Legends (NCAA Bracket talk)

Selection Sunday came and went and there was the normal discussion over the seeding process, who should’ve been seeded where and who’s being disrespected with the seeding that they got. The hard part is that no one seems to understand how the committee gets to their final brackets or what the criteria is that they are using. John Calipari said it best when he said it’s a moving target and the committee changes every year.

But here’s the real thing when it comes down to seeding……it doesn’t matter what number you have next to your name at the start of the tourney. It only matters that you cut a net and hang a banner at the end of it.

I can’t tell you what seed we were in the tournament for 4 out of my 5 years at MSU. I have no idea where we started when they announced our name. But I remember how each of those years ended.

They only thing that you can focus on and pay attention to is the process of preparing for the tournament because at the end of the day if you’re the best team in the country you should be able to beat all the other teams regards of seeds.

I’m excited for the start of the tournament; it’s one of my favorite times of year. I’m even more excited to see the Spartans cross the finish line.
