Swallowed Whistles

Great weekend of college hoops, but what makes the NCAA tourney are the upsets.  Davidson beating the Hoyas, while not a surprise, was still tough to watch.  Western Kentucky to the Sweet 16?  Amazing!  And of course I enjoyed watching the Dukies play like the bumbling squad they are; a marginally talented team that gains an advantage through superior coaching and beneficial officiating.

 What sticks out to me most from the opening weekend is the Texas A&M vs UCLA game.  UCLA was beyond lucky, the ref’s pulled a Donaghy and simply gave the Bruins that win.  How is there not more outrage at the obvious foul on A&M’s shot at the buzzer to tie?  If I was an Aggie (and I’m real glad not to be) I would be going ballistic.
