Imagine if that NC State player was white...All I am going to say like very much what NC state has said about Obummer & go University of Utah!!!
Baylor's loss must have hurt the most.My teams haven't fared too well. Five Texas teams went into round two, and none came out.
I've been saying the same thing for 6 years and it had nothing to do with basketball picks...Upsets, buzzer-beaters, highlight reels.
The best soundbite so far came from NC State:

Mayor Al, that's complicatedLiving almost within sight of the U of Louisville, and having Kentucky dominate the media (and the games) thus far...and the Hoosiers roll over and kick thir feet in round two, narrows my spectrum somewhat.
I do love the hype of the tourniment though. Living in So California for many years it was difficult to generate any spirit for the games...compared to the way work almost comes to a halt in some areas near us. I worked in Indiana and Kentucky Universities for a decade before returning to California back in the 80's and even if "my" school was not in the tourney, we had tv's going every day a game was being played.
None of my 6 sons are UofL or UK grads, they all went to the local Indiana U. campus or the two in Wisconsin attended up there...but except for the two Badger grads who are loyal to their school the others 4 boys and 2 girls all are fixed on U of L as the Pick !! One daughter in law is a U K grad...She sits gloating ready to claim her fame when it comes, but the rest of the family is ready to disown her if that happens... She will probably sponsor a family "DERBY PARTY" to make up for the victory dance she will do on the defeated Louisville team...when it happens. This is a very complex social event in this area..Certainly a lot more riding on it than a mere Basketball Trophy.
