can anybody explain to me why the play in games are for anything but the 16th seed?  if there were two teams that would qualify for an 11th seed why wouldn't they both be in and the 16th seed be out in that region?

First Four games are played by eight teams. Two games are played by the four lowest-ranked teams with automatic bids, and the other two are played by the four lowest-ranked teams with at-large bids.

alright yes thank you mobb.  you did win this thread.  don't really care though.  why would a 16 seed have to win less games to win the whole thing than an 11 seed?
