Each year on Selection Sunday dreams are made a reality for NCAA teams across the country while hopes are crushed for others as the official NCAA Tournament bracket is revealed.

The first real slight of Selection Sunday came about 30 minutes after the Michigan State Spartans (29-5) won the Big 10 Tournament 66-62 over the Purdue Boilermakers, which many presumed made them a sure-fire No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament. Well, they were wrong. Michigan State was tabbed as a No. 2 seed by the selection committee and then social media had a field day.

Don’t get up, guys. It’s just the NCAA Tournament. 

Bryan Altman is, for some reason, an unabashed fan of the Rangers, Jets and Mets. If he absolutely had to pick a basketball team it would be the Knicks, but he’d gladly trade them for just one championship for any of his other three teams.
