One year after being sent home early by the NCAA from the College World Series, NC State was left home despite having a more than compelling case for being in the NCAA Tournament field. Alec and Andrew give their honest opinions of the decision to leave the Pack9 out of the field in the latest Sawyer & Ciencin.

How did the Pack compare to teams that narrowly made it into the field? What are their thoughts on the justification from the NCAA? How awful is this for players like Devonte Brown and J.T. Jarrett? They touch on all of that and more.
