March Madness is upon us. Whether you are a college basketball fan or not, you can’t help but be aware of it, as the headlines change from Sweet 16 to Elite 8 and Final 4. However, all along the way, one of the most endearing story lines year after year is related to the underdogs ”“ the Cinderella stories ”“ the David and Goliath match-ups.
We love the underdog! Villanova Wildcats, Jimmy V’s NC State Wolfpack, Gonzaga. Originally little known, these teams and many others found a following as they clawed their way to the top.
Which is truly inspiring to basketball coaches on every level of play. But what about you?
Where is your campus underdog hiding? The easiest way to find out is to take part in a typical campus tour. What parts of your campus are skipped on the tour? Or worse, what parts of your campus should have been skipped?
If there is an underdog on your campus ”“ a building from the brutalist era of architecture on your traditional campus, a quad that functions like a repellent, misleading walkways, dysfunctional gateways ”“ that means there is also a Cinderella story waiting to be told.
