Bilas: This Sweet 16 is neither unprecedented nor revolutionary

OK, let's get a few things straight: A revolution is not happening in college basketball. Nor is what is happening in this NCAA tournament unprecedented. We've had crazier tournaments. What isn't crazy is The Bilastrator's order of the 16 remaining teams.
