Blank: Badgers' NCAA loss busted my bracket


Rebecca Blank isn't the University of Wisconsin-Madison chancellor quite yet, but she already feels the pain of the Badgers' loss in the NCAA tournament.

Blank told reporters Friday she had Wisconsin going all the way in her brackets. She says she's very sorry about the outcome, but she reassures students, "There'll be another year," and Wisconsin will redeem itself.

The fifth-seeded Badgers were upset Friday by Mississippi 57-46. The loss snapped a string of six straight first-round wins for Wisconsin.

Blank was selected as Wisconsin's new chancellor, subject to approval from the Board of Regents next month.

Blank is currently the acting U.S. Secretary of Commerce. She says she prefers not to leave that post until a new secretary is nominated. She expects to arrive in Madison by late July.
