I certainly don't like them when an entire season of excellence ends because of a loss to a bad team like VCU.
That is exactly why I (and many, many others) love college basketball. VCU is not a bad team, bad teams don't make the final four. They are a decent team that caught fire at the right time. It's exactly what makes college basketball awesome.
Having an excellent regular season is great, having a great tournament run is better.
I didn't say it wasn't exciting, especially for casual fans. Close games and one-off upsets certainly are.
And what you define as decent, I define as mediocre to bad. I watch a lot of college basketball and VCU isn't even in the top 30 teams this year. Looks like they've gotten hot from 3PT range for a stretch, but how long can you really expect that to last?
