We did it, basketball fans. We’ve found ourselves with a Final Four in this year’s March Madness tournament. In this week’s SSM, we outline the blue bloods, Cinderellas, and others left in the tourney.
Villanova is first, a familiar sight Wildcats never wrong when their coach is Jay Wright Had a hard path bracket, beat Houston’s tough D Coach Wright looking for championship number three
Guess who’s back, back again Duke is back, tell a friend You heard that right, Coach K still alive Even better than Wright, K wants to add to his five
Blue blood number three, the Kansas Jayhawks Continue to win in this college playoff Bill Self and his fake hair are are ready to roll He’s two wins away from the ultimate goal
They killed Cinderella, those stupid Tar Heels Ended St. Peter’s run, stopped their wheels UNC, Final Four, what an absolute shock We all wanted to see those feisty Peacocks
We made it, folks. Not just to another Sunday State of Mind, but to March Madness. We dedicate the latest edition of SSM to college basketball’s annual tournament.
Only place to start, the St. Peter’s Peacocks Fifteen seed came to play, major rising stock Beat second seed Kentucky, and then Murray State A classic Cinderella, what makes March Madness great
A big name eleven seed making a little noise Juwan Howard and Michigan, showing some Madness poise A bad regular season, turning it on at the right time Seems like only yesterday, the open hand slap crime
It happens every year, dreaded 12-5 upset This time around Iowa and UConn won’t forget New Mexico ended UConn, Richmond nipped the Hawks That’s why when doing your bracket you just can’t go chalk
Hate it or love it, The Dukies still alive Coach K beat Coach Izzo, the Blue Devils survive This retirement tour does just not seem to end With every win Coach K’s career extends
The Sweet 16 round of the NCAA Tournament is winding down. We saw some regression to the mean and some big dog’s continue to roll. We recap in this week’s SSM.
Loyola has fallen, no more Sister Jean Oregon State was tough, looked plenty mean The Ramblers played well, but OSU played great The twelfth-seeded Beavers headed to the Elite Eight
Oral Roberts Golden Eagles, this year’s Cinderella Their parade was rained on by Arkansas, no umbrella The Razorbacks locked up ORU like an old school jailer Next up for Arkansas in the Elite Eight? One seed Baylor.
The top seeds keep rolling including Michigan The Wolverines rolled FSU and won again Juwan Howard has his boys posed for a deep run It looks like Michigan is far from done
The third remaining one seed, Gonzaga Bulldogs Remain clear-minded winners, no signs of fog An 18 point win in the Sweet Sixteen The Zags are 29-0, their perfect record’s still clean
