Lunardi's Logic

Congratulations to the Commodores on knocking off Kentucky for the SEC championship in perhaps the greatest victory in school history. It's one to savor as the history of such upset winners in major conferences come the NCAA tourney isn't all that great. Vandy should beat Harvard, but I think Wisconsin is a horrible matchup in the next round.
