If you watch college basketball at all, you already know what this blog entry is about.
On Friday, I watched as my beloved Buckeyes fell to 1,000,000th seed Oral Roberts. I soothed myself with the belief that I could at least watch Illinois rise through the ranks. That belief ended this afternoon, when Illinois lost to another local favorite.
“At least Wisconsin is still representing the Big 10,” I told my husband. That comfort didn’t last long.
Now I will continue to watch the tournament, because it’s still good basketball, but my dreams of finishing with any sort of bracket pride are, sadly, over.
