Let's Go Bel-mont!

You know it's March when an entire bar in Northern Virginia anywhere except Nashville breaks into a chorus of cheers for Belmont University. As the 15th-seeded Bruins hung tough with Duke throughout the second half of yesterday's opening round game at Verizon Center, one enterprising Duke-hater at the bar started looking for the words to Belmont's fight song on his Blackberry. Sadly, neither the song nor Belmont's "Grr Cheer" will be heard for some time. I have Duke advancing to the Sweet 16, but Coach K's boys will have their hands full with West Virginia tomorrow. After all, they're playing in a venue that flashes the Duke logo and images of Greg Paulus and J.J. Redick on the video screen to get fans to boo during NBA games.
