While we — okay, I'll be honest, "we" implies that I was freaking out — were freaking out about Florida's too-close-for-confidence win over Albany on Thursday, the rest of the country was enjoying a thrilling day of college basketball. Five games went to overtime, another ended on a true buzzer-beater, two No. 5 seeds got upset by two No. 12 seeds in Spokane, and Louisville got pushed to the brink by a fearless Manhattan team.
There's no way Friday can be better, right? Just no way a No. 16 takes down a No. 1 or something?
I don't think so, but I'm hoping I'm wrong: It's my birthday (yeah, whatever) and I'll actually get to watch a fair bit of today's action, something I didn't get to do while I was at the Amway Center yesterday.
