NCAA Tournament of the (Previous) Decade

March 14, 2011


NCAA basketball logoNow that the first of a new decade of newly formated NCAA tournament fields has been set, Frump figured it’s as good a time as any to examine the best of the previous decade.

Some of you may recall Frumpzilla’s Top 25 College Football Programs of the Decade – it was a pretty big hit for us.

To top it all off, assuming your brackets are performing a bit below par, here’s a great opportunity to help pad your potential losses (assuming you’re doing this legally, of course). Make the jump to see why we think there’s enough of a lean towards the Wolfpack in this one to make it our lock of the day…
