I'm not going to lie... I've had the TV on since noon. I watched Memphis pull off a squeaker, and I saw L.S.U. best Butler. That last game hurt. My first missed prediction on the ol' bracket...

What am I looking forward to? Watching the ACC teams play, of course. But, as a semi-loyal and semi-fervent alum, I'm going to do my best to catch the Cornell game tomorrow. That's right, Cornell. The Big Red is in the NCAA tournament! (Read more about it here.)

In the elevator, Barrie asked me if I, hailing from Chapel Hill, always pick UNC to win it all. No, I was ashamed to say. Did I predict that Cornell will advance at all? I'm even more ashamed to answer that question with a "no." That said, it'd be an upset I could stomach. I'd be willing to get that one wrong on my bracket.
