2006 NCAA March Madness Final Four Bracket TeeThe NCAA Men’s Tournament has been spectacular. Well except for my Huskies losing to those other Huskies on Friday. More teams have come from behind to win or push the game to overtime than I can ever remember seeing before. Yesterday in the Texas versus LSU game was one of the most spectacular 20 seconds of hustle and scrambling by both teams ending in a game tying shot for Texas. This has been a great tournament so far. Hopefully we will see two more good games today. What have you thought of the NCAA Men’s Tournament so far?
