WHO'S AT FAULT? USA TODAY's Scott Gleeson noted Muller "comedically turned to Twitter to try to soothe things over" after not being selected by the committee (USATODAY.com, 3/13). Muller said that it "wasn't entirely their fault because power-five schools have been unwilling to play them." Muller: "It's just hard to schedule the games they want us to play. What they're asking for sometimes is not possible. I can tell you, I probably called -- our staff probably called -- 25 schools that made the (NCAA) Tournament to see if they'd play. What do you want us to do?" (AP, 3/13).
