Anyone feeling sorry for UConn? Not us. UConn is missing next year'stournament because they didn't do what they were supposed to do to be eligible.
Now you can argue that the standards are stupid, or unfair, or whatever. But the fact is that the NCAA is a voluntary organization and the members approved standards for post-season participation. No one is obliged to belong. If you do though, you have to live with the rules.
If UConn doesn't like them, that's unfortunate. But the members approved. And so it stands: no post-season for the Huskies.
