Nevada Most Boring Team in NCAAs/Sacramento Union/March 1984
Just five years out of college, I was more bemused than upset that those teams in the late 1970s I got to watch from press row never made it to the NCAA tournament. I was able to unload in one of the only times my mug graced a column in the Union until I wrote a regular column on card collecting several years later. I was right, by the way, as Nevada was bounced easily in the first round. In 2004, though, Nevada made a Sweet 16 run, and hit the Big Time for real.
