I can see putting Phoenix above Seattle (even though it's not on the West Coast and the CSA populations are about the same), but Riverside MSA is basically suburban LA. If this is a city vs. city competition there is no true large city in that MSA and it really shouldn't even be in the competition.

riverside, ca was weird to me too but the selection process is detailed here:
march madness city vs city bracket (round 1)

whats weirder to me is that i had to put washington, d.c. and baltimore in the south bracket.

the seedings only considered metro population so san francisco is the 2nd largest in the west and dallas is the largest in the south.
metro > city population. With metro Seattle is just behind LA and San fransico
