Well, here we are again for the second year in a row with another chalk bracket in the ncaa basketball tourney. The elite 8 consists of all four 1-seeds, two 2-seeds, and two 3-seeds. This coming the year after all four 1-seeds made the final four for the first time ever. Compared to most, these last two years have been pretty boring tourneys.
On the flipside, the last few years in football we've been seeing some unprecedented upsets. Mid-major conference schools are regularly beating middle of the road and even good teams from major conferences, Utah and Boise St have won 3 BCS bowls combined, and we are even seeing D2 schools not only hang with major schools, but sometimes beat them.
Am I the only one that finds it odd that odd that college basketball parity hasn't been up to snuff as of late at the same time that college football parity is at its all-time highest? I know the two are mutually exclusive but still, it's pretty weird.
