Philly fans, we really took the fall in this one.

Just 20 years ago, Penn State, the 13th seed in 1991 NCAA tournament, upset the fourth-seeded UCLA Bruins 74-69 in the first round of the NCAA tournament before losing to Eastern Michigan in their bid to make the Sweet 16.

Loyal fans will remember that part of the reason Penn State prevailed in that game was because UCLA, who by all rights earned a No. 4 seed in the tournament, also earned the right to travel across the country to play a first-round game in Syracuse, New York, in the "East" Region against Penn State.

Well, now it is Penn State's turn to lick its chops, because when you tune in tomorrow and see where Penn State is playing, and who they're playing, you will have to wonder aloud . . .

Is this justice?

Fortunately, Philly fans aren't the only ones getting the shaft in the tourney this season.  Let's have a look.
