UNI Fight! UNI Fight!

It's another good sports year for poor kid U. Fresh off the exciting, yet disappointing, appearance of easily our most famous alumnus in the Super Bowl, those plucky Panthers won their way into the NCAA tournament yesterday afternoon with a thrilling victory over the Redbirds (not to be confused with Cardinals) of Illinois State.

This is the first time the Panthers have been to the big dance in 5 years, and while I'm not too optimistic about their chances, it's always exciting when your tiny middle-of-nowhere school gets to go compete with the big boys. Who knows? George Mason set the bar for scrappy little schools only a few years ago, and with the likes of Kwadzo Ahelegbe and Ali Farokhmanesh leading the way, antyhing is possible...
