Texas A&M AD calls out committee over March Madness snub

Buzz Williams

The Texas A&M Aggies were one of the first teams out of the NCAA Tournament field on Selection Sunday, and that is not sitting well with the school’s athletic director.

Athletic director Ross Bjork called out the selection committee on Twitter, suggesting that the tournament had fallen victim to a “flawed selection process” and questioning how Texas A&M did not get an opportunity to go to the Big Dance.

The athletic director is obviously supposed to stand up for his school, and Bjork is doing that here. That said, the Aggies have a case, especially compared to Rutgers and Notre Dame, who did make the field. Texas A&M made it all the way to the SEC Championship, winning three games to get there. Rutgers and Notre Dame both lost the first game of their respective conference tournaments, and the Aggies are better than both in advanced ratings such as NET. Texas A&M even has a head-to-head win over the Fighting Irish in November.

This is not the only controversy that came out of the bracket reveal Sunday.
