So the Gophers have the best record in the nation (54-3), was last ranked as #3 nationally with 4 first place votes (out of 20 voters), then won the B10 regular season title and the B10 Tournament, and yet the selection committee fails to seed them at all (only the top 16 teams are actually seeded, the rest just get placed based on location and other factors).

That is utterly ridiculous.

ESPNW's Grant Hays tweeted:
"In covering something like 40 brackets between sports, not sure I've ever seen worse committee blunder than unseeded Minnesota. Inexcusable."

Where teams ranked #3 have been seeded:

2017: Unseeded
2016: 3
2015: 3
2014: 8
2013: 3
2012: 2
2011: 2
2010: 1
2009: 4
2008: 2

Yeah. WTF.

The USA Today/NFCA top 25 rankings came out today. The Gophers were ranked #1 in the country.

Think about what would happen if this happened in Men's Basketball, where the #1 ranked team in the nation was not even given a top 4 seed (top 16 overall). The internet would explode.

Minnesota ranked #1 and #3 in the country and can't even pull a seed for the tournament?!?!?! That's it.....I'm rooting for the Gophers all the way to give the committee a big fat shit-burger to eat.

GO GOPHERS!!!!
