[H4]College Basketball: Highlights and lowlights of the decade[/H4]


BEST SCHOOL: Michigan State
It's hard to go against North Carolina, which went to four Final Fours and won two titles, or Florida, which in 2006-07 became college basketball's first repeat champion in 15 years. But while the Spartans only won a single championship (in 2000), they also went to four Final Fours. Moreover, unlike the other two candidates, the Spartans made the NCAA tournament every year this decade. That is a remarkable achievement in an era when the best teams so frequently lose young players to the pros.

One of the least highlighted, yet most remarkable aspects of the NCAA tournament is its ability to purge the past...The water from the spring in Lourdes doesn't heal as effectively as March glory.

I disagree with this because of the weird logic bolded above. And I'll trade one more national title for two trips to the NCAA tourney any day.

You are not smarter than your favorite team's upper management, so stop trying to be.

That's debatable.

I firmly believe that any man's finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle - victorious. - Vince Lombardi
