Teams to Root Against

Who said hate is bad, when it can produce such scathingly funny results? It goes without saying that the two most loathsome franchises in college basketball, Duke and Stanfurd, are included. But who knew about the "Mocs" of Tenn-Chattanooga?

As for the Big Dance itself, I've watched perhaps 45 total minutes of college basketball this year, my interest waning as the play of my beloved Bears went to hell and the sad second-stringers at Michigan couldn't pick up the slack. Out of the tourney teams, I've only seen Illinois play for more than 5 minutes. So I'll go with the safe pick.

Oh, and yes, the congressional hearings on steroids were a joke. Where's Alan Alda when you need him?
