Let March Madness Begin

If Saturday’s college basketball games told us anything, March Madness will offer more madness than in recent seasons.

Duke and Texas, two elite teams were defeated. San Diego State, this year’s darling, fell to BYU. BYU appears ready to make major noise in March.

As an old friend used to say, “This is going to be good.”

No team is a clear-cut favorite to cut down the nets come April on CBS. Have you noticed lately the continued trouble No. 1 ranked teams have hanging on to that spot?
It’s like fruit salad. You never know if you will get a peach, pear or a banana.

Conference tournaments begin this week. I sense there are more schools fighting for berths than in a long, long time. Generally, I am not a fan of conference tournaments, but this year they might offer some clarity to the whole situation.

Get ready folks for some serious basketball. The thrills and sorrows will be on high alert. One bounce, one mistake could doom or make your favorite team’s season.

Bring on the hoops!
