In mentioning Missouri as a Cinderella team, perhaps we should mention what seed it was? It's great they knocked off high seeds, but what seed were they actually? I'm afriad I don't know that answer, but someone who does should add it to the article. Jarfingle 08:58, 24 March 2006 (UTC)

"The lowest seeded team ever to reach this round in the modern 64 team tournament era was #12 Missouri in 2002." Does this mean #12 out of 64? That's not a very low seeding to reach the quarter-finals. I presume it means #12 out of 16 in their quarter of the draw, which would be approximately #48 out of 64. Are there no national rankings, like in American football? This needs explaining since many people [e.g. me] will be reading the article because they don't even know what "Elite Eight" means, and hence the finer intricacies of U.S. College basketball will certainly be beyond them. jnestorius(talk) 16:44, 11 January 2007 (UTC)
