March Madness Mourning


March 23, 2007 by Stephen

Well, the dream is over! Texas A&M’s basketball season is finished as the Aggies lose in the Sweet Sixteen by 1 point to Memphis. In not taking care of the fundamentals (missing a lay-up and giving up 4 offensive rebounds in the last minute), the Aggies find their season coming to a premature end. But it has been a great basketball year for a “football school.” Hopefully this is a harbinger of where the basketball program is headed!
I will now turn to rooting for the remaining underdogs of March! Go UNLV, Butler, and Memphis (since no one gives them any respect, I’ll call them an underdog)!

    and i too am in mourning over the Tarheels…i can’t believe they just shut down at the end of the game against G-town. uh, i had taped the game b/c i had youth Sunday night…and i wanted to throw something at the tv. i knew when they went into overtime it was going to be trouble. i think the heels missed 22 of their last 23 shots. kind of hard to do anything if you miss all of your shots…

    oh well. there went all my brackets…

    I had 3 of the 4 Final Four teams, but alas, I picked A&M to win it all!

    At least the state of NC can rejoice in Barton College’s huge D-II national championship win Saturday (see Randa and I caught the last few minutes of that game and the last minute was incredible! Ten points in 39 seconds from Anthony Atkinson to defeat a team that had won a D-II record 57 games in a row! Awesome!

    I am glad one faithful of Aggie nation is in morning. They busted my bracket as well. I think you called it right though…offensive rebounds and a blown layup (by the best player). I hope there is next year as well.
