March Madness Bracket 2012 Reactions: Kansas State A Disappointment

As they say, all good things must come to an end, and Kansas State's season came to an end on Saturday as the Wildcats lost to the top-seeded Syracuse Orange, 75-59.

Mike Rutherford over at SB Nation's NCAA Tournament Central posted some of his thoughts about Syracuse's win, lauding the Orange's effort.

Against a bigger and tougher Kansas State team that many folks had pegged to pull the upset, the Fab Melo-less Orange got a sensational effort in the paint from Rakeem Christmas and cruised to a surprisingly easy 75-59 victory.

Rutherford also called Kansas State the second biggest disappointment of the Round of 32 so far.

They had a clear advantage against Syracuse inside, they out-rebounded the Orange by nine, and they lost the game by 16.

It's tough to be disappointed in an eight seed that fails to beat a one seed, but Rutherford is.
