Historic First Round Friday and it may only be the Beginning…..

It’s been awhile since I posted a blog. This is actually my first blog posting of 2016. There are so many reasons why so many people, both sports fans and non-sports fans can never get enough of March Madness. It creates a playoff format where every one of the 64 teams each has (as equal of a chance as you can get) to win a National Championship game. It makes stories that no movie, TV show, or book can ever duplicate. Expect the unexpected is a understatement.

With this year’s parity in college basketball, before the tournament started on Thursday, I predicted that this year’s tournament will be one of the most chaotic in years. Boy was I right. It was more chaotic than I ever thought it would be.

Things turned on Thursday when this happened:

However it was only the appetizer of what was to come.

Friday March 18, 2016 may go down as one of the craziest and most entertaining round 1 days in the history of this tournament. Since no words can describe it, I will be mostly using videos and pictures to describe all that happened:

Practically everyone’s bracket gets officially destroyed at this point by MTSU vs a favorite national champion pick in MSU

Controversy in Temple vs Iowa. Offensive Foul or no foul on Iowa? No foul was called. Iowa wins.

SF Austin’s Thomas Walkup becomes a household name

Before I get to Northern Iowa vs Texas, here is how UNI got into the tournament by winning their conference:

Then they topped it with this in Round 1:

Which caused me to do this again….

 

WTF Face

And almost immediately after that happened, this happened which needs no explanation:

One week earlier this happened to the Bearcats to cause them to lose their conference tourney in 4 overtimes.

It’s why this is the best playoff system in sports. One play can make you feel like this:
