I love this time of the year. And while the brackets haven't been cast yet, the surprises are flowing and desperate teams abound - the Madness has begun!

Let's dispense with the Homers first. After playing tough down their brutal home stretch the Cards didn't make it to the Big East tourney. The faithful will cling to Louisville's 5-pt final deficit in their loss to Pittsburgh. The game wasn't nearly that close. Now we'll have to wait and see which Louisville team will show up in the NIT.

Still in the Big East, Syracuse! After being left for dead at the end of the regular season the Orangemen are making some big noise in the Conference Tourney. After a narrow victory over Cincinnati last night, the 'Cuse took out top-ranked U Conn in overtime earlier today. The way they are playing right now, Syracuse might just snag the auto-bid and squelch the at-large debate.

Marquette - GTown is kind of weird. Marquette got the Big East first round bye but the Hoyas are ranked higher. Oh well. Georgetown moved on and they too have strong game right now.

Tomorrow things will heat up as the ACC and SEC send their top dogs into the fray.
