Don't you love the language of March Madness? This year they're calling it Arch Madness. Or the March to the Arch [Get it? St. Louis Arch?]
I particularly like the concept of Bracket Busters. Especially when they happen early. All those office pools are just reeling from the shock of an early upset.
No. 193 Vermont beats No. 4 Syracuse. Even I thought Syracuse had a chance to take it all. Ver-Freaking-Mont?!!! What have they been smoking?
Less than Zero Bucknell beats No. 3 Kansas. Wowser. David knocks out Goliath.
Bruce Weber is the coach of Number One ranked Illinois. His record so far is 30-1 He's in the second round of the NCAA championships.
His brother Dave also coaches in Illinois. For a high school team. His record is 30-2 so far. He's downstate with his team, playing in the semis of the Illinois state championships.
In a very short time we'll find out if their family can bring home two championships in the same year. A third brother, Ron, coaches high school in Wisconsin. He also had a winning season, but his team has already been knocked out of the cheesehead championships.
UPDATE: Dave Weber's high school team just won the Illinois State High School Boys Basketball AA Championship last night. The top bracket. Ranked eighth, they knocked off fourth-ranked Carbondale.
Three brothers. Three winning programs. Kinda cool. I bet Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners are very interesting.
