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

Sunday State of Mind: March 14th-March 20th

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
