Every year we faithfully fill out our brackets and gather around the TV to watch some great basketball. Carolina did not play well this year. In fact, they played downright pathetically. It has been depressing, deeply depressing to watch our team skid to the bottom of the rankings. Carolina is not going to the NCAA tournament this year. No Sweet Sixteen, no Elite Eight, no Final Four. Heads are hanging in our household. We are all so down in the dumps, we are not even filling out brackets this year. Big deal, they made the NIT tournament. No one fills out NIT brackets. No one.
