A big and hearty wish of good luck to the guys from Davidson College.Â Â
Charlotte is abuzz this weekend with Final Four mania — for UNC Tarheels, of course — but also for the Cinderella team from Davidson!Â It is going to be a tough battle for the Wildcats today in Detriot as they go up against Kansas for a spot in the NCAA Final Four.
But our whole city is behind Davidson and we know they will do their college and our state proud today no matter what the outcome.
UPDATE: Well, Kansas was just too much for Davidson, but the Wildcats stayed in it until the final buzzer. Kansas – 59, Davidson – 57. Now it is time for the UNC Tarheels to mop up the floor with Kansas in the Semifinal game.
In what has become more the norm than not, my personal investment in the NCAA Road to the Final Four has come to an abrupt end.
The Syracuse Orangemen (#4 seed) were shocked last night by the 13th-seeded Vermont Catamounts. What the hell is a Catamount anyway? Not that our mascot doesn’t look very dopey too. *grin*
I’m confident that the Syracuse alumni email discussion board will be buzzing today with calls to get rid of hapless coach Jim Boeheim. Yes, he wins a lot of games. Yes he does have a (translation: ONE) National Championship under his belt. But man he sure does have a knack for coaching a team each year that chokes in the first or second rounds of the NCAA tournament!
I guess I’ll tune back in when it is down to the Final Four. Ugh!
