I am actively refraining from "doggie style celebration" references.

Stormy waters, indeed.

I do not believe Chaminade was a DI school at the time, so in terms of talent disparity that one takes the cake.

I have just moved the Loyola Ramblers to the top of my Brackets! Way to go to the Penn AD (Brown grad)!

I called this team in an earlier thread. The best team no-one has heard of, and they got cruelly underseeded.

Heck, it wasn't even their first SEC victory of the year--they also took down Florida in Gainesville.

Still remember the Alfredrick Hughes bunch in '85 that went to the Sweet Sixteen. They got taken down by Pat Ewing.

I also had to laugh when thinking of Maryland.

Did not make the tourney this year and it required their satellite school to take down a team from their own conference.

Now that's embarrassing.

Maryland's not in the ACC any more. They migrated to the Big 10, for reasons that only make sense to those who favor football over basketball.

Yes, their athletic department was broke and they would have been unable to fix it given the state budget issues and legislature attitude. Stinks for fans, but that was the reality. Plus they always felt - and not without reason - the ACC was really the All Carolina Conference.

'Pologies for the brain cramp. I guess they did it so that the Big 10 could reach the shores of the Atlantic, which could then clearly serve as justification for holding their tourney at MSG.

That was one heck of a way to debut the first ever 9-16 matchup in tourney history.

Who says defense is boring? That was incredible to watch on both ends. UMBC nearly pulled it off-ignore the final score. Despite the low score, it was probably the most entertaining game all day, and that's saying something.**

**OK, I'll give you Nevada.

It's always entertaining watching the 'Heels get destroyed.

Alas, they have to go back to their non-classes.

Seeing the high-level D played by UMBC was inspiring. Their conference DPOY is really 5'6", their #1 scoring and creating guy played belly-to-belly on-ball defense while swooping into the passing lanes for steals and deflections, and their defensive rebounding was solid against physical high-major opponents. And they played hard regardless of which team was in the process of making a run.

And if a lot of posters here had their way, UMBC would not have appeared in the tournament.

Let's throw out all prior performances and achievements, even head to head, because any team can win on any given day.

Vermont was certainly more deserving of being in the field. They clobbered UMBC twice before losing a squeaker in their tournament final. I wonder what emotions they felt watching Virginia play much worse than they did against the Retrievers.

Ask 2005 Holy Cross, 2013 Mercer, and probably others that I'm not recalling now.

They know the feeling.
