Why in the Hell is VCU in the Tournament?

Every year we have our fair share of teams who were snubbed out of the NCAA Tournament.

We also have our fair shares of teams people feel didn’t deserve to make it.  This year we may have our first “WTF?”

Enter VCU.

What is so wrong with including Virginia Commonwealth University you ask?

Peep this.

The Rams didn’t finish in the top TWO of the Colonial Athletic Association (CAA).  VCU lost in the CAA tournament final to Old Dominion.  They have an RPI of 51.  They only have three wins against top 50 teams (UCLA in New York, at Old Dominion and George Mason in the CAA tournament).  They lost five of their last eight games before their conference tournament.

And you mean to tell me VCU is more deserving of being in the NCAA Tournament than Virginia Tech or Colorado?

Again, when it comes to the NCAA Tournament Selection Committee, why ask why.
