Jeremy Conn: Not So Sweet Sixteen…
I feel like most of the people i talked to this past weekend had a busted bracket. From New Mexico, Gonzaga and Wisconsin getting bumped out in the West or Georgetown getting knocked off in the South, fans are upset. Fans do love the Cinderella story until it ruins their office pool.
There are some really intriguing match-ups for the upcoming week. I’m really looking forward to the Spartans and Blue Devils going at each other in Indianapolis. Kansas Vs Michigan could be an old fashioned shoot out and arguably the best game of the weekend.
The game that has most people talking is the match-up between Florida and Florida Gulf Coast. Billy Donovan has won 2 National Championships with Florida but a loss to FGCU could hurt him in recruiting. How great would a story be about a team full of unwanted players from the big schools, beating the big guys and making a run to the Elite Eight. FGCU could do just that, a true David Vs Goliath story.
