Sweet 16…for some
The LTP Tourney Pool has been a roller-coaster ride and now that the Sweet 16 is set, our community bragging rights are starting to take shape too. Damischlaw is in first place clinging to a 10-point lead that is going to be short-lived. With only 640 points remaining, he/she is soon going to be overtaken by Johnathan Wood, Willie Weinbaum or Roob417, the frontrunners for the title, all with 480 points and all with exactly 1200 points remaining.
I can’t help watch this Madness through purple-tinted glasses. I was loving the purple of Stephen F. Austin and happy to see them get a win. I can’t help but think about NU alum Rachel Nichols post-game interview with Mercer and think of it as the wildest interview of the NCAA Tournament. Northwestern’s Craig Sager has his own TV commercial for crying out loud. And, any team getting love for their first March Madness win, well, that’s an obvious visceral celebration. And then there is that smart kids’ school with the former Duke assistant winning another upset…hey, wait a minute…
More on the Madness and NU Sports tomorrow.
