    March Madness! Finally. Best time of the year. I'll start off with congratulating the College of Charleston for their first appearance in the tourney since 1999.

    why was the Big 10 tournament held in NYC and like a week earlier?
    Same reason the ACC tournament is at Barclay's.
    which is?  money?

    waaaaaaay too much Power 5 mediocrity and not enough Cinderellas is the tourney.

    altho neither could win, would you rather see 20-11 ASU or 28-5 (guess) St. Mary’s. ASU, UCLA and OK were ridiculous inclusions along with some undeserving SEC trash.

    let’s hope ASU meets the same karma.....altho, against syracuse, it’s hard to say who is less deserving.

    Collin Sexton put on a show for Alabama. He made some tough shots and made it look easy. I'm glad he'll be in the NBA next year.

    I don't have any rooting interest in this year's tournament. I hope we get more upsets today than we got yesterday. If not, I might have to jump on the Loyola of Chicago bandwagon.
