Above is the link to the SB article.
They filled out the NCAAT Bracket as if it were the football teams playing the games.
Of course Harbaugh storms into the final four:
Michigan State (aka disrespect!)
Breaking down the Michigan-MSU Final Four game:
We already know how Michigan State-Michigan would play out, based on the authoritative, decisive, leave-no-doubt, wire-to-wire domination of the Wolverines displayed by MSU in their most recent football meeting, when the Spartans beat their rivals down for a full four quarters in totally replicable fashion. That game would've ended up exactly the same way if they'd played it 100 times, everyone agrees.
And finally, the championship game between Oklahoma and MSU:
Our championship pits two College Football Playoff teams, and we'll go with the one that finished rated more highly by the polls and computers and that actually managed to score points in the Playoff.
I know, we're in the middle of Hate Week right now, but seeing as Beilein has made March relevant for UM again, I figured I'd share this with the board
Apparently, to avoid competing with football (both pro and college), the NCAA is in preliminary talks to start college basketball in the few weeks after Fall exams and before Christmas.
But the season cannot be condensed because of student-athlete welfare issues, so starting one month later means ending one month later. Conference play would commence after the Super Bowl, allowing more than 50 percent of the season to take place out of football’s long shadow. The NCAA Tournament would move to late April or early May, which is the most radical aspect of the idea.
Seems like a pretty interesting idea, to say the least

I will only start this thread because I'm confidnet I'm the only Belmont grad part of this MGoBlog community.
I couldn't be more proud of Belmont for being the first in the tourney, especially considering they have won 2 out of their first 3 years years being part of the OVC.
Any predictions on who will win the other 'MidMajors?'
Matchup issues for other conferences?
Thoughts on conference champioships for MidMajors? Worth it? Not worth it?
Best time of the year!
Ok, this might be tempting fate doing a thread like this two nights in a row, but when I saw this image of Matta on Twitter I couldn't resist. And since we're playing them tomorrow it might be a good way to pass the time. Just like the Creanface yesterday, the transparent image is below along with my first attempt.
