Hope you had a fun time. See ya next year! Mayhaps they suffered from "Just Happy To Be There" syndrome or Mayhaps they weren’t all that good (they did lose to us at home, afterall). Either way, I’m happy with this outcome. They made it to the Tourney, so that 6 Pac10 teams made it. Go Westcoast Pride! And they got embarassed. Go Bears! Win-win!
Also, Drexel fans can be happy. They went ballistic when their team did not make it and the "Fraudinal" were Public Enemy Number One. Given how poorly Drexel did in the NIT, it seems doubtful they would have done any better had they made the tournament. Right below genuine success and victory, nothing feels better than indignant outrage and anger being vindicated. It probably feels a lot better than the crushing disappointment that Stanford fans are feeling now (and Drexel alums such as my uncle and cousin would most likely feel had they made the tournament). Really, a win-win for everybody!
Except for Stanford! Nah nah nah nah! Nah nah nah nah! Hey hey hey, GOOD BYE!
