Still recovering from last night’s last second loss by the Pittsburgh Panthers over here @ Around the Arc.  The team seemed poised to make a deep tourney run, having all the prerequisite depth and dimensions, and a ton of talent at each position.  After dismantling the majority of a brutal Big East schedule, it seemed to me at least, that the first two rounds of the bracket should be a breeze.  Seemingly favorable seeding in the bracket added more flames to my hope-fueled fire, which went up in a blaze of Butler black last evening.  It is difficult to find the words to describe such an unbelievable and unparalleled ending as seen last night, especially since it signified the abrupt end of a potentially promising Pittsburgh run. 

Losing your bracket champion in the second round sucks; watching your alma mater once again slip up when it counts and disappoint a legion of the Nation’s most loyal fans is tougher.


On the bright side, the culmination of my intent interest in the tournament (albeit a couple weeks earlier than I would have liked) means it’s time to get geared for what promises to be an amazing NBA postseason, and I couldn’t be more excited. Tags:
