The NCAA men’s basketball tournament began today, and it’s safe to say there’s plenty of attention on televisions throughout the facility.
In fact, when Brady Quinn walked up to the podium to begin his press conference, he noticed that his alma mater, Notre Dame, was in a tight game with less than two minutes remaining.
So he proceeded to step off the podium and watch the remainder of the game, bantering back and forth with some of the media. Unfortunately, Notre Dame lost by a point, and the quarterback headed back up to the podium for his press session.
But that wasn’t the last sign of March madness at Dove Valley. When Wesley Woodyard stepped up to begin his press conference, he announced that he had his alma mater, Kentucky, going all the way to win the championship this year.
He also managed to tease a reporter about the University of North Carolina, who, as he said, “barely won” its first game in the NIT.
As a proud Tar Heel, let me first say that they’ll be much better next year. Also, an NIT championship banner wouldn’t look too tacky next to those five NCAA championship banners in the Dean Dome.
Hope everyone’s bracket remains unbusted this weekend.
