First,Rutgers did try very hard to play Gonzaga on the road and Houston neutral site. Neither happened.And Michigan State is at MSG which is huge. What is missing is the WOW game which the Selection Committee discusses. And they do. That is factual. Either Gonzaga or Houston to a lesser extent would have been that game. Michigan State is playing Gonzaga,Kentucky,Nova,ND and either UNC or UConn. That is way too tough. Iowa has a Rutgers like schedule,but included is Duke at MSG. That changes the schedule. The Rutgers schedule should not hinder a 8, 9 or 10 seed going 9-2 OOC and 11-9 and 1-1 in conference, which is my prediction.
