March...

You feel that? Palms sweating, stomach tied-up in knots, knees shaking? Yeah, it's March...and I love it!

While there are plenty of reasons to love March (my birthday, warmer weather, St. Patty's Day, Spring Break, etc.) the main reason is college basketball.

Now there is just one week left in the regular season and here's what I know about my Louisville Cardinals...nothing.

Every time you count them out, they come up with a big win. Every time you count them in, they drop a game in unthinkable fashion. This team could honestly not win another game this year. They could also win the Big East tournament and then make some noise in the dance. I honestly have no idea what's going to happen. But isn't it great?

Beginning with the Cards last second win yesterday at UConn, each game from here on out has a ton riding on it.

Tomorrow night, the Cards head to Marquette with the winner pretty much locking up an NCAA tournament birth.

Saturday, the Cards will host their Senior Day and say goodbye to this place:
Oh yeah, we'll be playing the #1 team in the nation as well!

Then next week we'll head up north to Madison Square Garden for the Big East tournament.

Then, hopefully, we'll get a chance to dance in the NCAA's!

We might miss the tournament, we might make the tournament, we might lose our next 4, we might win our next 7 or 8! You just can't tell with this group.

But man, doesn't it feel great? I've got an extra hop in my step today and it's all because I'm dreaming about the Cards doing crazy, exciting things.

Seriously, is it crazy to think that this picture:
could turn into this picture:
in the next week or two?

It's probably crazy, but I've got a case of March Madness and you can't cure it!
