Plenty of you are probably less-than-thrilled about all the upsets that happened in the first four days of the NCAA men's basketball tournament, many of which turned brackets into shambles by the end of Sunday. (I have Michigan State winning it all, which is … yeah … not good since they lost in the second round).
But what's bad for bracket-pickers is good for viewers.
Among the most stunning wins: No. 7 seeded Nevada erased a 22-point deficit with seven minutes remaining to defeat Cincinnati 75-73 on Sunday.
Nevada head coach Eric Musselman, formerly a Wolves assistant, reacted appropriately — which is to say he lost his mind. After an enthusiastic postgame interview, Musselman ripped off his shirt as he entered the winning locker room.
Nevada will face Loyola-Chicago next. If you had that Sweet 16 matchup in your bracket, you deserve to rip off your shirt as well.
