Check that: A team from Kentucky, coached by a former Kentucky coach, is top-seeded entering the NCAA tournament.
Sorry, it's easy to mix that up.
Kentucky, the defending national champion, didn't make the cut. But the Wildcats did get a No. 1 seeding for the NIT.
We will dearly miss the in-tournament dynamic of a rivalry that last year produced a fan fight in a dialysis center before the Final Four matchup won by Kentucky.
You can't call Louisville's sensational 2013 seeding payback for last year, but it is fun to note Rick Pitino's team will open NCAA tournament play in . . . Lexington.
This turned out to be a not-very-controversial Selection Sunday in a wide-open year when it was tough to find 68 qualified applicants.
The heckling was mostly "inside bracketology" stuff about seeding and geography and matchups.
Kansas has come a long way from a February loss at Texas Christian, after which Coach Bill Self lamented "it was the worst team Kansas has ever put on the floor."
Mike Bobinski, chairman of the selection committee, indicated on CBS' post-selection show that Gonzaga got the last No. 1 by a sliver and it was partly because of the Bulldogs' decades-long tenacity.
The committee basically pulled out an old song from Gonzaga's own Bing Crosby and asked the Bulldogs: "Would you like to swing on a star?"
There were plenty of questionable calls, though, within the bracket.
It seems obvious the selection committee, like a lot of us, had DirectTV in the room and couldn't get access to the Pac-12 Networks.
The NCAA released its seeding list 1-through-68 and the Pac-12 Conference didn't have a team in the top 20. Arizona, which lost three times to UCLA, checked in at No. 21, followed by UCLA (24), Colorado (36), California (42) and Oregon (43).
Arizona and UCLA earned ho-hum No. 6 seedings, Colorado was a 10, and Oregon and Cal ended up on the No. 12 line.
Bobinksi conceded Cal and Oregon should have been on the 11 line but were bumped like passengers on an oversold plane to comply with bracket "mechanics."
