The Big Ten is better than most thought, Wichita State was criminally underseeded and more lessons we learned from the second round of the NCAA tournament.
The first weekend of the NCAA tournament ended, as it always does, with nobody caring about your bracket, unless you are ACC commissioner John Swofford. Then we’d really like to see your picks, please. We bet you made some foolish predictions, like Duke to win the championship, Louisville to make the Final Four, Notre Dame to make the Elite Eight, and Virginia to make a basket.
The mighty ACC is sending one team in the Sweet 16. The Pac 12 is sending three, the SEC is sending three and the much-maligned Big Ten is also sending three, despite some rough seeding. What can we learn from this? Life lessons, of course. We’ll get them straight out of the mouth of the nearest college basketball coach, as soon as he gets off the phone with his agent.
