Well that was a fun weekend, wasn't it? As of last Thursday, making it out of the first weekend of the NCAA tournament seemed like a realistic expectation. Now, it's national title or bust. Unfortunately, seemingly every "expert" in the country agrees, which definitely feels like a kiss of death. Regardless, winning is sure a heck of a lot more fun than losing, and there's hopefully six more wins left this season.
