What a disappointing first round. Hardly any upsets and many Cinderellas are already home. Seeing Duke fall in the first round for the first time sine '96 is fantastic. Illinois outplayed and looked to be the only 12 seed to make it, only to collapse. You deserve to lose if you get outscored 12-0 in the final 4:30 minutes of any game. I don't care if you are up by 25 and all the reserves are in. McBride is a joke, and I cannot believe Weber spoke highly of his leadership. One of the leading three point shooters in Big Ten history misses all his free throws on a three point foul. What? OK, this was not meant to be a rant on U of I but has certainly turned into it. I hope there will be some upsets in the second round to spark something into this tourney. Oh, and it is St. Patrick's Day, which means it is time to crack a Guinness, make a carbomb, and throw on the leprechaun outfit. Happy St. Patty's Day to all!!
