Biggest Snub?

Which team most deserved to be in and missed the cut for the Big Dance? Well, there are a number of candidates-- Maryland, Michigan, UTEP and Missouri State can all make a decent case for being slighted by the NCAA selection committe.

But for my money, the biggest snub had to be Cincinatti's. They finished at 8-8 in the Big East, the toughest conference in college basketball, and lost in the first round of the Big East Tourney by 1 point to Syracuse-- in Syracuse's backyard, Madison Square Garden. Seton Hall, who did make the NCAA Tourney, finished at 9-7, lost to Rutgers by 13 in the first round of the Big East Tourney, and lost to UConn by 34 and Duke by 53. Cincinatti lost to UConn by 11 and Villanova by 2.

Any other snubs out there folks would like to rant about?
