ESPN has Oklahoma a #2 seed that plays in Kansas City. True, Oklahoma has one more win on the season that Missouri does, but MU beat Oklahoma and two teams that beat Oklahoma (KU & Oklahoma State). Also, I believe that a lot of seedings should be based on how the team is playing now (If a team starts the year 26-0 and finishes with 4 straight losses, should they still be a #1 seed?).

MU just won the Big 12 tournament and is deserving of a #2 seed and should be allowed to play it's first two games in Kansas City's Sprint Center. Currently, Oklahoma is slotted here. Contrary to belief, no one here likes Oklahoma (although, we do enjoy the boost in the economy when their fans travel here!). I'm just saying that there's been some hard times for MU fans and it would be nice to have home court advantage as a reward for winning the Big 12. I think they've proven that they are a better team than the sooners. Want an interesting matchup? Make Oklahoma the 3 seed in the same bracket as MU and let's see the two teams battle it out. I'm confident MU will win.

Thoughts?
