March Madness!?

This must be a sign of the apocalypse: The Texas A&M football team can't buy a win on the field all season, while the basketball team just knocked off the no. 6 Longhorns to run it's season record to 19-7 on the year and make a play for landing a berth in the Big Dance. Oh my goodness:
The 13,176 rabid Aggies — and yes, that is redundant — may have left the Reed Arena court by now, but we're not going to swear to it. They just might still be stomping and yelling and jumping and throwing the horns down.

If it's one thing the Aggies are really good at it, it's being noisy. They can do loud.

The school-record crowd outfitted in white T-shirts and waving white towels stormed the floor after Acie Law's 22-footer swished the net with no time left on the clock to give the fans something to shout about. That may include a deserving NCAA tournament at-large berth despite an atrocious non-conference schedule the Harlem Globetrotters would be ashamed to have.

Could the squad's cream-puff non-conference slate have disguised the fact that the Aggies might actually be--gasp!--a good basketball team? The mind boggles.
