Texas in Africa is so ready for March Madness.
Congrats to the Penn Quakers, first team to be invited to the NCAA tournament. Although I'm sad that Yale didn't knock out Penn for the Ivy championship, I join Ben in gleefully celebrating the fact that Princeton is probably going to finish dead last for the first time in the history of the League. Despite Ben's hopes that the Quakers will be a 12-seed, I'd like to suggest that he keep dreaming and get ready to be crushed by Ohio State in round 1.
Belmont is also in. That's going to hurt.
Despite today's loss to Kansas, unless Texas majorly messes up the Big XII tournament next weekend, the Longhorns should be at least a 5-seed. That's assuming that Kevin Durant didn't seriously mess up his ankle.
All this is to say that tournament time is so close I can taste it! Check back during spring break for what's sure to be the wackiest combined March Madness/SXSW coverage ever. That's right, not to be defeated by silly scheduling conflicts, we're doing both! Woooo-hoooo!!!!!!!!!
