Thus ends the lamest First Thursday afternoon I can remember. )Even Stanford is rolling in that 5 p.m. game that no one on the East Coast ever watches.)
Let me just say this: Tonight better be better. Although, to be fair, a first round can be saved by one or two buzzer-beaters or upsets; no one really remembers first rounds beyond the one-off upsets or buzzer-beaters. There's plenty of time for Madness.
