If your bracket is still in perfect condition then, from the bottom of my heart, I say fuck you. Why do I keep doing this to myself? Every year I think, “I’ll make a strong one this year” but it never comes to fruition. Fuck this tournament.
Now that we got that out of the way, man this thing has been fun to watch. Upsets, should’ve-been upsets (seriously Davidson, what the fuck?) and a whole bunch of mostly grown adults getting angry at college kids–isn’t college basketball the best?
Now that I’m officially over the fact that my shitty brackets are done for, let me say that I respect the hell out of Harvard’s basketball team for showing up last night. Someday when they’re all running Fortune 500 companies, I imagine they might take a weekend getaway to Cabo, San Lucas and reminisce about the time they won Harvard’s first NCAA Tournament game. Marquette somehow got to survive last night despite not deserving it; I seriously hope this haunts Davidson forever. Speaking of should’ve-beens, Gonzaga somehow won and proved the naysayers right at the same time. Southern University showed some serious spirit last night; it was an admirable effort and no matter what the score says, the real winners are those Southern University cheerleaders.
Here’s hoping that the rest of this tournament gives me plenty to be as angry/excited about as last night was.
