Tennessee fans are taking to social media to voice their displeasure with the NCAA Tournament's Selection Committee.

The Volunteers, who went 29-5 this season, losing in the SEC Tournament title game, received a No. 2 seed in the South Region.

Tennessee should win its first game, taking on No. 15 seed Colgate (24-10) on Friday, with a game time to be announced.

The location of the Vols' first weekend games has Tennessee fans upset, though.

If Tennessee beats Colgate, it'll play the winner of No. 7 Cincinnati vs. No. 10 Iowa on Sunday. That game will be played in Columbus, Ohio.

Tennessee fans travel well, but Cincinnati could have a serious crowd advantage for that second round game.

Tennessee will be favored in its second round game (assuming it wins in Round 1, of course) but it could prove to be a tough crowd matchup.

The TV channel and tipoff time for the Vols' first round game will be out soon.
