Discuss, have fun, and scout future Michigan opponents.
Kentucky is losing by 8 at the half despite shooting 56% from the field. Wow.
Interesting stat of the day:
John Calipari is 1-8 against Bob Huggins.
this UK WVU game is exciting.. the fauxhawk with the designed sides is amazing.
West Virginia and Kentucky... Winner gets a trailer with their Sweet Sixteen bid?
Just mentioned Beilein for potential coach of the year..
After our Final Four bid, it's hard to imagine that he wouldn't be.
I don't know who to root for in this game. You've got the anti-Big East and the anti-SEC component, so that comes out a wash. Calipari is a scum bag, but so is Huggins. Kentucky hates dentists, but West Virginia abhors dentists. I'm conflicted.
Root for George Mason to knock off OSU and the winner of this game.
Hard to root for Calipari no matter who they play. I am pulling for WVU in this one.
I picked Kentucky but not sure it makes a difference to me. In basketball I dislike the Big East much more. Should not have gotten 11 teams in although the Bubble was weak.
from the MGoBlog brackets on ESPN.com, so I'm pulling for WVU. I went 27-5 in the first round, but 4 of my 5 losses were teams I had in the Sweet 16, so there's that too.
Where is John Wall when you need him?
This last 6 minutes is going to be fun.
with Huggins and Cal and you have a Corleone family picnic or a Paul Mitchell commercial. Rick is definitely Michael and Cal is Fredo, who is Bobby? Pitino looks like he has a $100,000 suit.
In terms of the actual game, my mom is a UK grad and I was born in Lexington, so I usually go for them except now with Cal as coach it's been difficult.
HAha when they show people from the stands every other one has either long hair a a hunting hat on.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oof9pZ6CWD0&feature=related this is the first time i have seen this. its after WVU beat Kentucky last year. the players started to mimick John Wall and well, do the John Wall.
Don't get all the Calipari hate. The guy wins games everywhere he goes.
Damn UK has to hit their FT's, keeping WVU in it
The programs also vacate most of those wins shortly after he leaves.
When you are 3/3 in terms of former programs being hit with sanctions, you've earned some animosity.
Jim Tressel, is that you?
It's pretty easy to understand the Calipari hate.
1) Calipari is hired.
2) Calipari cheats at his new school.
3) NCAA begins to investigate.
4) Calipari leaves, and only then does everyone realize that he has left yet another steaming pile of NCAA violations at said school.
5) Calipari profits.
There is no way I can take two more weeks of that NAPA commercial.
Dang, Stover on UCLA free throws are UGLY. I thought he was going to put one of those through the backboard. Gators up two at the half.
It is nice watching these games and realizing M can play with and beat any of these teams. Just keep us away from the big fella on OSU. Sullinger is our Achilles heel.
It's been 909 days since Duke beat Michigan.
the cbs feed of marchmadness on demand is pathetic. ive tried 1 computer and two laptops and it is slower than ever. i cant watch the pitt butler game.
then you just missed two of the dumbest fouls in tournament history
#1 seed Pitt is done let's make it two #1's out and knock of the dookies tomorrow
How in the hell can they call that a shooting foul on Pitt? The dude just chucked the ball in the air. What a shitty call
I don't think it was a shooting foul. Moot point anyways, Butler was in the double bonus
didn't realize they were in the bonus, I had just flipped it on. Bizarre end to the game
They were in the double bonus. If they would have called that a shot, it would have been 3 free throws.
I don't think I've ever seen that.
That's ONE 1 seed taken down by an 8. Lets make it two tomorrow!
(And maybe George Mason can beat OSU for three?)
Also, for non Big Ten teams, getting up against Bo Ryan in the tourney must just be horrible. You're like, "Since when do posessions take 27 seconds? WTF?"
Jacob Pullen has one of the better neckbeards I've seen in a long time. A long time.
Every year, the same choke-job in the post-season.
Wisconsin just hit a huge three with a minute and a half to go. Repping the Big 10. Won't root for them beyond this though.
