Sweetness – With both UW & MU advancing to the Sweet 16 it was a pretty good weekend for Wisconsin basketball.  Conversely, especially with the results of last night’s games, my bracket is toast.  No matter, I would much rather have both Wisconsin & Marquette playing next weekend as I would think most of you are.  I like Wisconsin’s chances especially now, with the ouster of #1 seed Pitt, to make a run at the Final Four but will have to get past a scrappy & surging Butler team first.  I think Marquette will have a tougher time with North Carolina but as they say, it’s one game and anything can happen.  All in all though, a solid weekend and we have more to look forward to coming up.
