No. 4 seed a personal shot at Barnes?

08:22 AM ET 03.17 | A very good defense, future NBA players and depth ... Is Texas' No. 4 seed a reflection on their head coach? If I'm Rick Barnes, who happened to earn his 500th career victory this season, I take it personally. And I make sure my team takes it personally. It's as if last season's epic fold from No. 1 has extended into this season. It's as if the NCAA tournament selection committee took one look at Texas' last month of work (three losses in four games) and slapped a sell stock order on the Longhorns. How else do you explain Texas getting a No. 4 seed and teams like Florida, San Diego State, Purdue and BYU landing ahead of UT with either lesser credentials or missing players?

Probably is but who cares. Win and the shots go away. Lose and they get worse.

San Diego State belongs higher than the horns. They may have an argument with the other three mentioned here.

Article makes a good point. I think it was a bit of a slam on the Horns. They are better than the teams listed here. Let's see how they react to this slight.

Show us some character Texas.

All but one. But they do fold easy this time of the year.

Agree, however Billy's teams had the same rep until 2006.

Oh come on Orangebloods!! These lame attempts at drama won't persuade me to subscribe.

I would like to point out that a Buckeye is asking someone else to show character. This has to be the joke of the day.

They won't get far in the tourney with their horrific free throw shooting. Ranked around 310th in the nation on FT %. Yikes.

Haha, I hear ya. That type of stuff happens here too. No thanks. I get rumors and gossip for free on this. That's enough for me.

I like Rick Barnes and he has really brought stability to that program but at some point he needs to get over that hump.

Hook 'em Horns have some mighty fine lady fans witnessed at the UT @ UNC game in Greensboro, NC last December. However, the coach doesn't get the most out of his team during the tournaments. Did you see how KU man-handled UT for the Big 12 tourney belt?

You did win, no doubt. It will probably be vacated down the road though.
