So our first day did not go so well. I finished with an embarrassing 8-8 record. Before today’s action begins, let’s just reflect on the fact the nation’s best conference(The Big East) should have went 0-4 yesterday. Villanova got bailed out by the referees in OT, Georgetown forgot to show up, Marquette stopped playing defense, and Notre Dame choked like usual. We’ll see what today holds for the other Big East teams in the field(Syracuse, West Virginia, Louisville). Let the Madness begin…Updates all day……
