Well, it looks like Maryland should be embarrassed (and maybe their fans should shut up). Maryland (and its fans) were upset that they didn't get an at-large invite to the NCAA tournament and pouted by at first declining an invitation to the NIT. They were given a #1 seed in the NIT, only to be bounced in the first round by Manhattan. Meantime, a team that a lot of people complained about getting into the NCAA while powerhouse conference teams like Cincinnati, Maryland, and Florida State were left at home is busy knocking Michigan State (another powerhouse team in a powerhouse conference) right out of the NCAA. Congrats Patriots!
