Baylor vs. Xavier: 3 Reasons Both Teams Will Exit Shortly

Welcome to the Sweet 16! We've narrowed the field all the way down from 68, and one lucky team from this game will move on to the Elite Eight to take on the winner of the Kentucky versus Indiana matchup. 

Don't get me wrong, though, this isn't necessarily a happy or congratulatory article. While moving on to the Elite Eight will be a great achievement for one of these teams, there's just no time for me to celebrate what is likely to be the beginning of the end.

One of these teams will be knocked out in this round, obviously, but the winner of this game shouldn't get comfortable because they''ll be out soon enough.

While this statement may sound pessimistic, dark or even downright rude, I have to stand firmly by my beliefs. Sorry Baylor and Xavier fans—the truth is sometimes hard to take.
