We’re in the Southwest bracket playing in San Diego.

I’m watching UF and TTU in the East regional playing in Dallas.

What gives? Does someone with the tourney committee deserve to be fired or is it always this way??

It's always been like that. I think they try to give the higher seeds the closer (to them) sites, and often-times they are from the same region so the rest get dumped wherever there's room to make the schedules work out. It would make more sense if they changed the name from "whatever regional" to something not geography-based.

The Sweet Sixteen locations are geographically correct- Atlanta for the South, LA for the West, Boston for the East, and Omaha for the Midwest.

BUT he brought me up taking me to Clemson football and basketball games when we moved to SC so he kind of made up for it. Still he pulled for his school but for my sake and especially my sisters he was a Tiger fan as well
