Well, that was weird
So Penn State just beat Florida, at Florida. In a basketball game. A men's basketball game.*
And yes, I know it is the NIT, and the only people who actually care about the NIT (even the quarterfinals of the NIT) are people like me, people who generally have nothing else to care about when it comes to postseason basketball...people whose NCAA brackets are filled out, each year, with a certain nihilistic despair. But given the history, I still feel like this is one of those Cats and Dogs, Living Together moments in life.
*And the best player on the floor was this guy, Jamelle Cornley, who is essentially down to a single shoulder.
