VCU Still Didn't Deserve to Make The Tournament

Upsets are fun when they are in the first couple of weekends, but when you have two mid major teams in the Final Four (including one that didn't deserve to make the tournament to begin with,) that translates into something that I am not interested in watching at all.

VCU wasn't good enough to justify selection.  Even after winning 5 consecutive NCAA tournament games, The Rams are still ranked 50th in the KenPom rankings which is still behind several teams that did not make the tournament.  VCU simply benefitted from extreme luck in concert with weak opponents/weak performances from their opponents.

I do not want to take away from the fact that they have made an all time classic tournament run, but I do think that their selection was ultimately one that was without merit.
