So the Horns lost and, combined with Louisville (and possibly, as of this writing, Kansas), my Final Four brackets are in shambles. Going into the weekend, I could have picked all 4 and now it looks like UCLA might be the only one I got right.
UPDATE: Of course Davidson didn't blow up my bracket, because they executed what was probably one of the biggest fuck-yourself and choke jobs I have ever seen from a basketball team down by only two with the ball and 17 seconds left on the clock. Are you kidding me? What the fuck was that?
* Sorry for the language, I am being candid. It was that bad.
UPDATE2: How did they screw it up? Well, for one, Stephen Curry might be the best player on the team, but sometimes the best player needs not to be selfish. 17 seconds is an ETERNITY. Shit, Tyus Edney only needed 4.8 seconds! And Edney did it right - take the ball down the floor and right into the middle. 4 things could happen, and 3 of them are good: 1.) The inside shot could be made to tie the game and send it into ovetime, 2.) He could miss but get fouled and get to shoot two free throws to tie the game, 3.) He could make the shot AND get fouled and have a chance to win it by one point, or 4.) He could miss and not get fouled and lose the game.
But if you take it inside, at least you have a 75% chance of something good happening. Dribbling around outside of the NBA three point line and then throwing up a prayer after wasting 16 of 17 seconds on the clock has a very low chance of success.
