Sweet 16 Preview: East Region

As we prepare for the second weekend of March Madness, one thing has become abundantly clear: There are a handful of top echelon teams --- and everybody else. For a lucid snapshot of the current college hoops landscape, look no further than the East Region. The two top dogs, Kentucky and West Virginia are still standing, but the rest of the bracket has been decimated.

Sweet 16 Preview: Midwest Region

As a believer in accountability, the first step here is to discuss why Kansas will not be winning the Midwest Region in this year's NCAA Tournament, as I've been projecting since Cole Aldrich decided to return to school about 11 months ago. The Jayhawks dragged their feet. They didn't make in-game adjustments until it was too late. And they threw up far, far, far too many 3-pointers in a game where that might have been their only disadvantage. Kansas could have won a national championship. Bill Self deserves the blame more than anyone for why they didn't.
