Here's another good piece...

We get so caught up in the results at this time of year, the ramifications, the bubble, the seedings, the bracketographers or whatever they’re called, that we sometimes forget to look at what’s right in front of us. Like, say, a great freaking basketball game.

Tennessee and Kentucky played one of those Saturday at Bridgestone Arena, an SEC Tournament semifinal so good, so intense, so emotional, so loudly appreciated by the fans of both teams that it kind of felt like nothing else mattered.

If you were in the building, you know exactly what I mean. If you were watching on TV, hopefully you got some idea of how special this was. If you want to take the outcome and apply it to how either of these teams will do in the big tournament to come, don't bother. Both are mentally and physically capable of staying in it for a long time. And it is powerful enough to eject anyone at any time — that's part of why we love it.

So just enjoy this sucker for a second, OK?

Opinion: Take a second and enjoy Tennessee's win over Kentucky in SEC tournament classic
