One note about the selections, a month late -- there was some comments from the committee that they were using their choices to "send a message" to power conference schools that they needed to play a stonger out of conference schedule.

I have a problem with this -- the commitee's job is to pick the teams that have a chance to pick the teams that have the best chance to win, period. If that's what they did, I have no problem with it. But they shouldnt be using their selections to "send a message" about out of conference scheduling. If a team's poor schedule makes it impossible for the committee to evaluate the team, that's one thing. But if the committee really believes a team has a better chance to win than another, but passes on it because to punich it for playing a weak schedule, then they're going beyond their job,
