This feels right:
Here are your highlights for today:
- Automatic Invitations: Princeton threw a wrench into the machine last night with the Tigers' victory over Cornell in the first semifinal of the Ivy League Tournament. Can any other team ruin things today? Albany has a dangerous situation with Stony Brook, Denver can't screw around with Georgetown, Ohio State and Johns Hopkins both need wins to ensure safety going into Selection Sunday -- today has all the makings of a Univision telenovela. Throw in four one-shot looks at The Show -- Bryant-St. Joseph's, Massachusetts-Towson, High Point-Richmond, and Quinnipiac-Marist -- and today may be the best day ever.
- Syracuse at Colgate: The only two teams assured of an NCAA Tournament invitation at this point will meet in Hamilton in a non-NCAA Tournament game. [stands up from chair in talent agent's office] "The Aristocrats!"
- Notre Dame at Army: Army West Point meets Notre Dame South Bend at Michie Stadium West Point in West Point West Point. That is the dumbest sentence I've ever written. Branding!
