I'm not playing Devil's Advocate. Devil's Advocate means (IIRC) that you don't actually agree with what you're saying, you're just arguing the other side.
I agree with what I'm saying. I'm arguing against the notion that the NCAA selection process is arbitrary (as a whole, I've repeatedly stated that for bubble teams it's necessarily arbitrary).
But there is no selection process until you get down to the bubble teams though. They don't have to go through much criteria or hard thinking to understand who the At-Large locks are and the automatic qualifiers. It's pretty obvious. There is no decisions to be made besides seeding until you get down to the bubble teams. I'm not sure what we were even arguing about at this point though.
