With the Wichita State Shockers tipping off against Tennessee at 3:30 PM EST, I offer the following in support of the Missouri Valley, and in my continuing attempts to annoy DrawingDead and other residents of the Volunteer State:
Once there was a team from Wichita
Lookin’ for a high seed to kill
Vols have not played like a #2 seed yet
Reckon they never will
Shocky Top, you’ll always be
Home sweet home to me
Let’s go Shocky Top
Shockin’ ol’ Tennessee
Shockin ol’ Tennessee
And with that, I’m off the RenFest.
UPDATE: DrawingDead responds.
For the record, I like the Tennessee men’s team. I have nothing but respect for the job Bruce Pearl has done. Obviously, the Vols are overseeded, but that’s not a criticism of Tennessee, it’s a criticism of the selection committee. Tennessee has had a good season, worthy of a #4 or #5 seed, and if they weren’t playing a mid-major, I’d be rooting for them.
Now, the Tennessee women’s team is another story. But then, I’m from Connecticut. You can’t expect me to like Pat Summitt & co. :)
