Sweet Sixteen

first_imgHow many of your brackets are still intact?  I would be willing to guess none of them are.  Where is Virginia, Xavier, Cincinnati, and North Carolina–or, for that matter, Michigan State? On the other hand, we have 2 #9’s in Kansas State and Florida State, and who would have guessed 2 #11’s in Loyola and Syracuse?When the season began, they said we would have a much more balanced field to try to find a national champion.  When the tournament started, most people agreed that Virginia should be the top seed this year.  Well, that ended on the second night of the tournament when UMBC upset the Cavaliers by 20 points.  Sunday was an absolute massacre when #3 Michigan State, #2 North Carolina, #2 Cincinnati, and #1 Xavier all bit the dust!For you local fans, you still have Purdue and Kentucky! For me, it is Boiler Up all the way!!last_img
