Calipari hiring bad news for SEC

As Homer Simpson said in “The Simpsons Movie” after watching Itchy and Scratchy on the big screen, “Boooorrring.”

That’s how I feel about what is usually one of my favorite things to watch, the NCAA Tournament. March Madness? More like March Nap-ness. I found myself watching a movie last weekend while an Elite Eight game was being played because the outcome was so obvious.
We have had 17 games out of 60 decided by five points or less. By contrast, 38 of the games have been decided by double digits. The average margin of victory has been 12.85 points.

Fortunately, we have the sideshow to keep us entertained.
