Blue Monday

Jays Miss NCAA Field

After losing so badly in the semifinals of Arch Madness, fans of the Bluejays knew it would be an uphill battle for one of the at-large bids to this year's Big Dance.

I'm trying to not let the fact they didn't make it bother me. And I'm trying to forget that Arizona simply didn't win during the past month yet gets an at-large spot.

And I'm not, for any second, saying only the Jays should have been in instead of the Wildcats. Plenty of teams have a decent argument for that last at-large spot.

Don't believe me? Take a listen to Dick Vitale, below. Sure, he is a head wonk at ESPN, the television power that pretty much runs public perception of (and exposure to) college hoops. Painted as a homer for Duke and other major basketball powers, Vitale argues with Jay Bilas and some other talking heads about his perceived slight of "the little guys" like CU and Saint Mary's.

Oh, by the way, Creighton's a #1 seed in the NIT, which starts Wednesdsay at Qwest Center Omaha versus the Bowling Green Falcons.

He was probably trying to alert his buddy Vitale to the looming presence of some ESPN wonk who was growing tired of Vitale defending the "mid-major" schools.
