O/T First Time In Its 78 Year-History — NCAAs — Wanna’ Lose A Bet?

If there is anyone out there, willing to take the southern side of this bet, I’ll give points — but I will see my Wildcats win their first appearance in the Big Dance, in the 78 year history of the tourney.

With 44 no longer publishing a bracket, I’ll no longer post all of my picks (for a comparison), but I will have NU going through the second round. Vandy just won’t be up to it, here — in my estimation — come Thursday at 4:30 PM EDT. Here’s a bit:

. . . .NU coach Chris Collins was not worried.

“We’re going West,” he told his players.

And he was right.

At 5:32 p.m., CBS put a halt to agonizing NU fans.

“The No. 8 seed, out of the West,” Greg Gumbel said. “There they are … the Northwestern Wildcats … 78 years in the making.”

And the gym went nuts, with NU players leaping from their chairs. . . .

Hey — the Cubs did it, right? So, feel free to come wearing purple on Thursday, one and all. It will indeed be a great day to be a Wildcat. . . Smile. . . .
