Watching the end of the UCLA/Gonzaga game, it never occurred to me what a fan of UCLA was feeling at the finish. I did think about the players, and how crushing it was for them. I believe it's worse for the players in the moment, but they will also move on from it more quickly than most fans will.
Also, I've watched every minute of the tournament that I could, and will enjoy watching tonight's game. No criticism of your different attitude towards it, just not something I can really understand.
