The Madness was lacking. Stephen Curry's jersey is in his mouth, and Davidson is walking away from the Jayhawks, who are rejoicing at their escape to the Final Four. San Antonio has evaded Cinderella for the second year in a row, though on a grander scale this time. All four Number 1 seeds are going to the Final Four.

That guy in your pool who picked all 1's to go to San Antonio will never shut up. Never. (He also picked two 9 seeds to upset 8 seeds in the first round.) All these bracketologists who figured you've got to have at least one 3 seed playing in the National Championship? Yep. They were wrong, too.

Will this be a recurring trend? Now that the ice is broken-will 4 No. 1 seeds just become locks to make it to the Finals? Nah, I just think Cinderellas are in a bit of a funk. This is Karma punching us back after they gave us George Mason.

So this is all well and great for those of us who want to see games that should be interesting, but it's inevitable, now, that another College Powerhouse will win a championship. The storylines are kind of lacking, as there is no bitter Memphis/UCLA rivalry, and as Kansas/UNC aren't exactly harsh to each other.

But then again, this is what the NCAA wanted when they established the seedings-didn't they? They sure as hell didn't want a Mount St. Mary's vs. San Diego final.

Has a commercial ever rang more true than "There are no Cinderellas?" Just hope it's temporary.
