The fact that VCU got to the Final Four is impressive enough, to do it while starting as a First Four is miraculous. There are a couple things this tells us.
- Anyone can win… ANYONE.
- Stop discriminating against non-major conferences, the “oh so powerful” Big East had 2 of 11 teams advance pass the round of 32.
- Give koudos to the underdogs, Butler especially, they’ve done it two years in a row!
- The selection committee doesn’t know anything when it comes to evaluating teams.
- Jay Bilas needs to bite his tongue and never say a single negative thing again–> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ace6MPGIY2w
This tourney was fantastic. Thank god I was out of it early so I could sit back and enjoy watching the powerhouses fall to the small teams with passion, to the coaches who cry, and the fans that pack the stands and make just as much noise as a bigger university would. March Madness wouldn’t be the same without them.
