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.
I agree. It hurt like hell at the time, and I pretty much skipped the rest of the tourney, but the SEC move, the new unis, the excitement over the coming football season, and the rising level of excitement for year 2 of Haith's tenure have me looking forward and not back.
