The opening two rounds of March Madness are in the books, and there’s no doubt we’re witnessing something we’ve never seen before.

It’s been a complete and utter bloodbath through the first four days of the tournament. Carnage has overtaken the sport, and I absolutely love it.

Nobody, and I mean nobody, has been safe. You think being a top seed gives you protection? Think again.

So far, in a grand total of only four short days, Virginia, UNC, Xavier, MSU, Arizona, Tennessee and Miami all got upset. Are you kidding me? Anybody who claims to have predicted even half those upsets is somebody that I’d have no problem calling a liar to their face.

Virginia became the first ever one-seed to lose in the first round, and they didn’t just lose. They got blown out. It’s like UMBC came in as Ari Gold and just dispatched like it was a bad boardroom meeting.

I honestly don’t even understand what is happening at this point. It’s pure chaos, and that’s what we should all be cheering for. This is the craziest March Madness of my lifetime, and it’s awesome.
