Both of us are more interested in college football than college basketball, but this weekend was still pretty exciting since two of our schools won their conferences. The UNC Tarheels are one of the top teams in the nation and were favorites to win the ACC, which they did after a few close calls. With their win they’re now the top-ranked team for the NCAA tournament. Go Heels!
More surprising were the Georgia Bulldogs, often great at football, but not basketball. This weekend, sportswriters and announcers were using words like miracle, shocking, and improbable to describe their SEC tournament championship. To put this in perspective, UGA had lost 4 of the 16 games played against these same SEC teams; on top of that, they had to win three games in 30 hours due to the tornadoes in Atlanta over the weekend. Go Dawgs!
