Well, drat -- my school lost. They left a lot of points on the table-- but considering that, they still came within 7 points. (The spread was 20.)
And after seeing Kansas play, I think I'll hate on Gonzaga less now. So Gonzaga, I'm cheering for you (a little more..)
Rooting for North Carolina now, since Villanova is out.
Go Louisville + Indiana!!!!
Villanova is out? Rats--my boss is a Villanova alum, and I'm due in at the office today. I'll have to extend comfort and condolences. I don't know how involved he is in rooting for basketball; he was a football player. But I'm sure it stings. I'll have to bring in some sympathy ice cream.
Also, Louisa, is Greg Smith your student? He's from Omaha, so I'm making an educated guess!
Or Wes Elkmeier?
Colorado State is doing some great ball and keep Louisville
on their toes!
I don't say he was a great kid because he made it as a division I athlete. He just was truly a great kid to teach. His parents did an awesome job of keeping him grounded through all the attention he got for sports; I can't say enough about them. By contrast, I had another D-1 level athlete super star getting comparable attention a few years later and her ego was only outdistanced by her mother's ego on her behalf. Teaching her was an insufferable experience. And she has played in high profile games available on television in our area,too. I make no effort to watch.
