around here march madness is still pretty big! and talking about sleeper teams in the tourney, what about gonzaga a couple years back and Southern Illinois last year?
The "Zag"Nuts were a breath of fresh air!
But ... other than that ... it does seem like the same old same old.
And ... I also agree w/ the above. The BEST part IS those small schools that can field 5 good players and make a legit run at the "Big Boys".
THAT'S what made March Madness great!
I miss it.
Guess like everything else .... it's all $ $ $ now.
And even though basketball fields only 5, the small schools are in a bind.
When high school players get Hummers ... and TV exposure nets you an extra $5Mil ... who wants to play for a small school?
THAT'S the problem!
