NCAA Bracket 2012 Reactions: Seton Hall Was Snubbed, But Still Keeps It Classy

The 2012 NCAA Tournament bracket was released on Sunday evening with the Big East securing the most bids of any conference. It wasn't particularly surprising, but considering the Big 12 and Big Ten conferences were second-best with six teams apiece, that's a pretty solid performance.

The Big East could have made a case to put 11 teams into the bracket, however, as the Seton Hall Pirates had a solid shot at making it after being on the bubble for most of the past month. That didn't stop our Seton Hall bloggers over at South Orange Juice from being classy upon finding out their team wouldn't be in the Big Dance.

I think I speak for all of us at South Orange Juice in saying that although we're all extremely disappointed, we're still very proud of what the Pirates accomplished this season in just Kevin Willard's second year at the helm. Willard brought this program an incredible way in just two years at Seton Hall, to even be in the, "bubble" discussion everyday of the last week.

Despite failing at the ultimate goal of making the NCAA Tournament, Seton Hall University has been in the national spotlight and discussion for much of the last three weeks, certainly a better position than where we found our name two years ago.

It's good to see that even though the Pirates were snubbed, the fans are keeping it cool and not burning couches or whatever the college kids do these days. Bravo, Seton Hall.
