Most, if not all, on this board look forward to Taxman's thoughts.
I hope he is wrong, but his opinion is very realistic. In this century, ND has made it to the second weekend 3 times. The NCAA tournament is really a crapshoot. As Taxman has said in the past, the tournament is like baseball at bats. Sometimes you strikeout. Sometimes you get a hit. You just need to keep swinging the bat.
