Shocking the world

I watched it, but I don’t believe it.

Gardner-Webb, my alma mater, went on the road tonight to play Kentucky as a 25.5-point underdog. I sat down in my recliner and flipped on ESPNU hoping that my Runnin’ Bulldogs would play hard and keep it close.

“Anything but a blowout,” I said to myself.

Guess I’ll have to settle for the 16-point win.

This is a big deal for a team that was playing in Division II ball eight years ago. A school with 5,000 (and that’s probably stretching it) students taking on one of the most storied programs in NCAA history – and totally dominating them?

Wow.

This was no fluke. This wasn’t an unbelievable three-point shooting night or some one-in-a-million pot shot. This was a disciplined, prepared basketball team flat whipping a bunch of kids that had their minds someplace else.

Again, I don’t believe it.

But it sure is fun.
