The noise was deafening over the weekend – thousands of NCAA Tournament basketball brackets ripped to shreds as the underdogs slayed the hoops giants time and time again.

Arizona – axed.

Carolina – crushed.

Tennessee – toppled.

Virginia – vanquished.

And the list goes on and on and on.

March Madness like we've never seen it before.

The Big Dance on steroids.

UMBC.

Loyola, Chicago.

Nevada.

New names, new faces, new mascots, even a 98-year nun/team chaplain enjoying the spotlight and infusing energy and excitement into this annual event.

No complaints here.

Who wants to watch when you pretty much know the outcome before the game even tips off?

Not this time around.

So root for the Ramblers.

Back the Pack.

But don't be too disappointed if one of the heavyweights still hoists the crown in two weeks.
