And yeah, you do have to give coaches some time to show what they can do to develop their players.
Now that the tournament is over, it's basically out of sight, out of mind. Not going to lie, it hurt a lot at the time and while watching the tournament play out (especially with the blowing up of Missouri's bracket).
But the excitement level for next basketball season is high, as is football.
That seems to be the perspective of most of my friends, too. No sense dwelling on it, not when there are other things to be excited for coming up (like football).
One of the benefits of being competitive in both sports, I think... you never have TOO long to dwell on anything from the other sport.
