Oh my word, how nerve-wracking was that wait? I knew Xavier was going to be in, but part of me was just waiting to see Murray State or someone get called there. Anyway, here's how everyone felt during the show:
@BannersParkway does that make GTown and Providence max at 6 as well?— XUfan2012 (@XUFan2012) March 15, 2015
@BannersParkway at least a 7 maybe a six— Reds Fan (@WhyTheRedsRule) March 15, 2015
@bannersparkway we did beat them twice.— Drew (@DruciferDecrees) March 15, 2015
@BannersParkway lots of puckering with IU and Texas in already. And Wichita a 7?!?— JakeMahle (@JakeMahle) March 15, 2015
@BannersParkway I hope you're right. :-/ worried— Ryan S. (@TouchedArtist) March 15, 2015
@BannersParkway With Indiana and Texas comfortably in and UCLA in at all, nothing would surprise at this point...— Ryan Hester (@RyanHester13) March 15, 2015
@BannersParkway we are somewhere between 6 and 9 out west.— JakeMahle (@JakeMahle) March 15, 2015
@BannersParkway we would have to have the most top 50 and 100 wins of any snub— JakeMahle (@JakeMahle) March 15, 2015
And here is how we were feeling when the seed was revealed, starting with the reaction we all wanted to see.
THE MUSKETEERS ARE DANCING! Xavier will be a #6 seed vs #11 BYU/Ole Miss in Jacksonville! #LetsGoX— X-treme Fans (@XU_Xtreme_Fans) March 15, 2015
My friends at @BannersParkway had to wait til the very last matchup was revealed to see their Muskies on the screen. Congrats, fellas.— Ryan Hester (@RyanHester13) March 15, 2015
Of course, there are always haters:
Xavier as a 6 seed reminds me of UMass being a 6 last year. Ridiculously over seeded. Whoever wins BYU/Ole Miss has a shot to advance.— Dan Wolken (@DanWolken) March 15, 2015
BYU got a nice draw. They are better than Ole Miss and they are better than Xavier. They got a better draw than Utah, in all honesty— Tony Jones (@Tjonessltrib) March 15, 2015
How do we handle those haters, Big Game James?
