The 2010 NCAA (Division I) men's basketball tournament brackets were announced yesterday. The most intriguing possible 2nd round match-up is between Baylor University and the University of Notre Dame. Although I am Catholic and spent last year at Notre Dame as a visiting faculty member, I'll be rooting for Baylor, the Baptist institution at which I am a professor. For those who think this may be heresy, I have no doubt that Mark Noll, a Baptist and history professor at Catholic Notre Dame, will be pulling for Our Lady's university.
What a country!
