If we had any pull in Vegas (we don't), we would place tighter odds on many once thought impossible feats---like the Cubs winning the World Series, capitalism in China, and even the Earth spontaneously stopping from rotating on its axis---than the North Carolina Tar Heels failing to take down the nets in April.
