Update [2008-3-23 11:26:3 by Joel]: Observation of the day, from the Tennesseean:
A bunch of wins: When UT (30-4) meets Butler (30-3) today, it will be the first time in NCAA Tournament history that two 30-win teams face off in a second-round game. The early-round matchup has raised eyebrows, and some have said it is unfair for both teams to be facing such talented programs this soon.
We'd better be up for this one.
