RJ - you claim that only one team worse than a #6 seed has made the Final Four in the last 28 years. There are more than one, although it's small. #11 LSU in 1986, #8 North Carolina in 2000 (I seem to recall there were two #8's in 2000 - was Ohio State a #8 that year, too?), #11 VCU in 2011 (I don't believe a single #1 made the Final Four in 2011). And who could forget #11 George Mason in 2006 or #9 Wichita State just last year? You may want to double check my memory, but there have been several teams below a 6 seed that made the Final Four in the modern era.
