I’m hardly the first person to point this out. As a matter of fact, the Internet was abuzz with this moments after Michigan State’s win over Duke yesterday evening. Ho-hum Final Four, they buzzed.
Buzzed, Tweeted, Instagrammed. There was no love for this quartet.
Yeah, it’s CBS’s worst nightmare: no Duke, no Carolina, no Villanova, not even Loyola-Chicago. The only number one seed to make it to this year’s Final Four? That would be the flagship university of my home state’s higher education system: the University of Virginia.
Who very few people care about outside the state of Virginia.
Some back-to-back it would be, though. To lose as a one seed one year then win the championship the next?
Stranger things have happened.
