First set of games are about to begin. Other than the obvious, which game (or games) are you most looking forward to watching today?
also duty-free guys falling over and grabbing their shins
I think Virginia - Florida is going to be a tight one and I am excited to see if FSU is legit. I know St. Bonnaventure isn't the cream of the crop, but they're a solid team capable of an upset.
shooting percentages in the conference. Very for real. Playing with confidence. A not-so dark horse to win it all.
They'll flame out like they usually do, round 2 or Sweet 16, if they get past today. (Not meant in a snarky way!)
Belmont vs Georgetown
I choose Belmont over GT but I'm not feeling quite as confident about it, especially after picking Montana over Wisconsin as well...
I did too (EDIT: picked Belmont to win). However my reason was becuase I am hoping that Georgetown's loss to OHIO 2 years ago was because Georgetown as a 3 seed is bad and not because OHIO has a strong ability to knock off higher seeded teams.
to all of them. I love March Madness. Already gave up on getting any work done today.
That's a great DTV Charlie Sheen commercial
Wow, Texas can't buy a basket early on.
From Dan Wetzel:
Texas, backing up the committee's faith.
Texas: This.. is.. so.. bad.
Steve Fisher and SDSU in action against NC State. Down 5-2 early
Will Texas get to double digits this half?
I've got a shiny nickel that says they don't.
Don't worry, I'm sure you'll find another shiny nickel one day
Was that Cincinnati guy wearing black face?
They have scored another point!!!!!!
The crazy thing is that as bad as Texas is playing, they're far from out of it.
Kinda reminds me of that UNLV game. They could not buy a basket, but somehow they stayed in it enough to make a run at the end...where they proceded to miss every big shot when they needed one.
Florida State's season ends today. Since I will be working while this happens I'm going to assume it's correct and look forward to seeing the Bonnies on sunday. Go Bonnies!
is it 7:20 yet? Slowest....day...ever.
This SDSU and NC State game is actually really good. The Pack have been hot lately, so the Aztecs got a bit of a rough draw here. It has been back and forth with good play on both sides. In case you have only been watching Texas try to hump a doorknob, there is a good game going on.
Texas is shooting 13% from the field. This is horrendous. 4/30.
but I am not seeing how to stream games live for free. When I go to cbssports or ncaa.com, it's asking me to pay $3.99 to see all the games. Aren't able to stream it for free every year? Anyone give me a link where to do that?
You had to text 0Michigan or 0Wolverines to a number, and get a code back. I heard they were out of codes, though. The thread is somewhere on MgoBlog
now it's letting me stream it for free. But my lunch break is about over so it'll be shortlived!
It's like Bizzaro first half
Texas down only 3 now.
It's MADNESS!!! (yuck that was bad)
I need Cincy to win this... come on Bearcats!!
Why do teams do this? Texas plays through their offensive system to get back in the game, and once they are tied, they go back to the willy nilly offense that got them in the mess in the first place.
because they're coached by Rick Barnes?
SDSU down by 10 with 3 minutes left
The reffs have it out for bama
As I can. Primarily Creighton game right now; looking for the Midwest team to get a matchup with UNC. Looking for Florida St. to get beat and looking for a Florida win.
When you need 2 to win. With like five minutes off to design a play. Nice going Bama.
New-ish thing I guess. You're down by one but you jack up a 3-Ball for no other reason than it looks glamorous. Well, glamorous to the shooter, I guess, because I frankly think it's assinine the way they do it. I don't understand why the coaches allow it either, I've seen it many times now over the past few seasons.
Let's go Bonnies! Nicholson is too good.
I believe Creighton-Bama is the first game to come down to the last possession so far. Of course Alabama made a mess of it.
Let's Go Bonnies!
that Georgetown is a 3 and Michigan a 4 is because the Ohio rematch. I am happy we have the 4 though cause I would rather play North Carolina than I would Kansas.
made a ill-timed call on the timeout with 2.2, sometimes you gotta let the energy of March Madness flow and let your guy go with the ball and I am surprised he didnt call the timeout with 4.5 to go to set it up. Seems like he has to live and learn but he'll probably be back, good coach all year long.
Come on Belmont! Go on a run.
Don't fuck me over FSU! Also come on Belmont!
WHY!!!! he's spinning the ball on his finger fergodsakes JUST TAKE IT!!!
Also call Kenny Loggins FSU because you're in the danger zone
Bonnies lose track of the game score. What are you doing trying to take a 2 with so little time left?
Lame for sure...time to head to aa for tonights game
Glad we dodged them as they got rolled.
Maybe they meant the Bonnie's.... At least they put up a fight. That would have messed up a lot of brackets.
Moral of the story? Never go for who all the experts say is going to pull an upset... Pisses off the favored team. And Kenpom's overrated teams = overrated.
