It wasn't that 2010 Duke got a number one seed that pissed me off. It's that they got by far the easiest bracket when Kansas and Kentucky had separated themselves that year (much like Syracuse and Kentucky this year). Duke got an imploding Villanova team as its two, Baylor as its three and Purdue (which just lost Hummel) as its four. I mean come on. Somehow UK got stuck with West Virginia as its two. It didn't pass the smell test when they announced it, and sure enough Duke not only coasted through its region, but got a West Virginia team that hadn't hit threes all year but came in thinking they could because that's how they beat Kentucky.
Baylor was regarded as the toughest 3 seed in the tourney. And say all you want about Purdue, they were a sure fire 1 seed before the Hummel injury, and one player does not make a team. They were still a quality team, I think they deserved a higher seed.
