Today we’re going to be rooting like hell for Michigan State because, well, Duke. Also Emily and Richard are State Alum and I could have gone myself except, well, Michigan. Auburn is worthy of mention because they’re the closest thing to a Cinderella left in the Tournament after their upset win over North Carolina.
Interestingly enough both the Michigan and Michigan State (who hate each each other almost as much as they both hate Ohio State) Fight Songs were written by the legendary Leonard Falcone who I studied Euphonium under. He thought I was hopeless and he was quite correct.
