Oh, perfidious North Carolina, rolling like a ruthless steamroller over all who stand in your way! Who could have known you’d be so unstoppable after losing in your own conference tournament!?! I was all set to crow about the brilliance of my Badassiest Mascot method, and you had to go and ruin it! You, a team with such a lame mascot that you should have rightfully gone out in the first round! Have you no shame? Have you no compassion? Have you no respect for out-of-the-box bracket picking?
The funny thing is that, had Michigan State won, my Badass Mascot bracket would have beaten my regular one, which is a pretty sad statement in and of itself.
Oh, well – the Badassity fight begins anew next year!
