It’s pure Madness!by Eric Schwartz
Forget everything you thought you knew about college basketball a week ago. This postseason proved the reason why this time of year is called March MADNESS.
Entering the tournament the one certain seemed to be that the Big East reigned supreme. Since then Villanova, Georgetown, Louisville and Notre Dame were all sent home as the favored team.
While the Big East was floundering we got to know little schools such as Northern Iowa, Cornell and St. Mary’s.
This is what is so great about the NCAA Tournament and so frustrating all at the same time. A team can be great all year and be bad for one day and all anyone will remember is that day bad. Meanwhile, a team can be average all year and be great at the right moment and be remembered for that one moment for years to come.
This truly is a special time of year. March Madness brings you to the highest of highs and lowest to lows all in one weekend. It can bring you to your feet on Thursday and to your knees by Saturday.
If you had Northern Iowa in your Final Four pleas stand up. You sir in the corner – sit down. You are a liar.
Whether you are happy about the last few days results or sickened, all you can is move forward. There is still more to come.
This is madness and this is why we love it.
Throw out your bracket. Forget the time you put in studying your bracket thinking that you actually knew what you were talking about. Enjoy the event for what it is: A true tournament to determine one true champion.
You can always win your pool next year – or the year after. But a tournament like this only comes around once in a decade.
Sit back and enjoy this.
The Madness is in full swing.
