Tonight officially starts the NCAA Tournament, with the play-in game set to begin. I haven’t even filled a bracket out this year, but I think that the committee has awakened a sleeping Tiger by giving my alma mater, Memphis, a #2 seed instead of a 1 seed. I think I actually prefer it better this way. John Calipari always seems to get the guys to play better when he can put a chip on their shoulder and play the “us against the world/no respect” card. While I don’t think this team is as talented offensively as last year’s national runner-up team, I think they can make up for it on the defensive end of the court. It’s been said that defense wins championships, if so, don’t count out my Tigers!
