    I will have to give Mark Story of the Herald Leader credit for spurring me to write this article.  
    It was after I read his article that I thought, ‘How wrong can one guy be?’ and decided to write this.  
    His article stated that Murray State should not be left out of the NCAA tournament and Indiana and Texas put into the fray.  
    Heck no Murray State should not be in the tournament. But neither should Indiana or Texas. That would be unless they win their conference tournament, which they will not.
