Early in the show, the selection committee in charge of the March Madness field made a controversial call on who would get the last No. 1 seed.By Carter Woodiel | March 13, 2016
The March Madness selection committee didn't wait around to make its first controversial decision of Selection Sunday. The four No. 1 seeds in the tournament are Kansas, North Carolina, Virginia and ... Oregon.
Oregon is the big surprise to college basketball fans, many of whom penciled in Michigan State as a No. 1. The Spartans had a 28-5 record and won the Big Ten Conference tournament just hours before the bracket was released.
But Oregon was bolstered by a 14-4 Pac-12 campaign and the second-toughest schedule in the country. Michigan State's schedule ranked 79th.
