Who Is The Next Loyola? (TJ Otzelberger's Jackrabbits are on the list)

The 2018 NCAA Tournament was full of so many amazing moments and performances that it’s hard to remember every single one. There was 16-seed UMBC’s epic win over one-seed Virginia, FSU’s big win over one-seed Xavier, Nevada’s 22-point comeback against Cincinnati, Syracuse’s run from the First Four to the Sweet Sixteen, Texas A&M’s obliteration of North Carolina, Jordan Poole’s huge buzzer-beater, and finally Villanova’s dominant run to a second NCAA title in three years.

In the end, though, the 2018 tourney will probably best be remembered for the Loyola-Chicago Ramblers, who rambled all the way from an 11-seed to the Final Four thanks to a series of last-second heroics and huge performances. They transcended what was expected of them and become one of the few true mid-majors to make it to the Final Four in the last few decades.
