    Armageddon did not arrive. The end, as it turns out, is nowhere near. Conference realignment has come, team pillaging has gone, and the Atlantic 10 is still here and still fine, thank you very much. Just a year ago, teams gathered in Brooklyn f...

    Dana O'Neil

    It's so easy to bash the bracket and, by extension, the NCAA tournament selection committee. But this is also a subjective process, where beauty is in the eye of the computers and still, the beholder. The country will never see eye-to-eye with the...
