with the acquisition of a second PG, i'm guessing that Morris won't be brought up anytime soon. hopefully he can find another team in the offseason.
Murray State opens up against Colorado at 12:15pm on CBS.
We are about an hour away from tip off! Let the fun begins!!!!!!
As the deadline for filling out brackets and joining pools approaches, I just wanted to post a reminder to join the MGoPool.
However, I can't find the information needed to join the pool. I've searched ESPN, Google and gone through MGoSearch; can anyone help a fellow MGoUser out with the name and password of the group?
This thread would be lacking in conversation if these were the only topics, so why not post some thoughts on your bracket, funny ways the girlfriend/wife picks her bracket or anything even tangentially related to the topic of March Madness.
Last year was a beautiful March - CBS streaming all the games for free, for anyone around the world.
This year, CBS/TNT/TBS/TruTV is streaming their games for free, but only if you are a cable subscriber. NCAA has all the games for $3.99 - beautiful.... except this won't work for all countries. I'm in South Korea and this deal won't work here. I've tried to sign up while shielding my IP address, but NCAA won't allow.
Do any international MgoBlogers have an easy solution to the streams (besides the standard Firstrowsports, etc...)?
So the Knicks are 2-8 since Carmelo returned, he has been sulking visibibly on the court because he does not fit into D'Antoni's offense, and has had to deny he told the Knicks he wanted to be traded unless D'Antoni was fired. Whatever the story, he looks like he's wearing out his welcome with another team. D'Antoni wanted to build the entire offense around Lin, as he did in Phoenix with Nash, and that was unacceptable to Anthony. In any case, the coach resigns and player stays, as is common in the NBA.
I have to give credit for the idea of this post to User "ijohnb" and his thread http://mgoblog.com/mgoboard/open-work-not-working-tourney-thread but I wanted to create a spin-off and start a different discussion:
What is your favorite personal story relating to the NCAA tournament? It can be anything, no matter how tangentially related to the tournament. Here are my top 2:
(1) Trip to Vegas for the first two rounds of the tournament. That place is insane at tournament time - the games start at 9am and continue into the night. We camped out at Mandalay Bay where they had a huge screen set up and arranged for waitresses to take orders. Oh, and I won a few bucks by betting on Michigan in an NIT game.
(2) Attending a first round game back in 1991 that featured the Richmond Spiders (15 seed) beating Syracuse (2 seed), the first time a #2 had ever beaten a #15. The crowd was going ape-sh-t!
What say you?
