My alma mater, Vanderbilt, has reached the Sweet 16 in the NCAA basketball tournament.
I will note that the alma mater of my brothers, and even of my bride, UConn, is no longer present and accounted for. Now I do like seeing UConn win, but Vandy needs a shot here!
And here is a very interesting article on why a strongly academic school like Vanderbilt manages to compete in the SEC – at least in some sports (football is another story, of course…).
Update – oh, well, they lost, on a last-second shot by Georgetown. It was a great shot actually, even if the G’town player traveled in the process. And I have never seen such a great exhibition of ball-handling and passing as the clinic Vandy put on during that game!
