I didn't see one yet, and I thought having a forum for general discussion of the evening games suvh as Butler / Marquette and Gonzaga / Wichita State (among others) might be convenient for all.
Would it be if the remaining Big teams make the sweet 16!!!! Lets show everyone we are indeed the best league in the land... Go blue
Ehhh what the hell, why not
I would love nothing more than to beat their ass in the NC game!!!
hope they lose the rest of their games.
besides LaSalle, cuz everyone loves a cinderella.
i think he's the coolest white trash since eminem...but that's just me
also, the thought of henderson getting under the skin of wisconsin made me happy
Are getting scarce fast.
I'm hoping one of games is competitive.
today's games have all been blowouts.
The Butler game is close, so far.
Looking for payback against Butler!
Seriously.. are all eight games going to be blowouts today?
Marquette v Butler might be the best bet.
but the zags are trailing at the half. Could turn out to be a pretty good game.
...as it relates to the evening games:
Interestingly, St. Louis was given a 67% win probability against Oregon, and Butler is favored slightly (55%) against Marquette. Gonzaga is actually getting 69% as an estimated win probability against Wichita State. California is not getting much of a chance against Syracuse - 28% for that one.
Getting out of hand.If it's a basketball move it shouldn't be a flagrant and in the Marquette game it wasn't even a foul.
I'm a blind squirrel who located that quacky nut.
Ehhhh...replied to the wrong post.
By changing the very definition of what a flagrant foul is, they changed how you have to play the game. A flagrant foul should be just that, a flagrant action taken against another player, not some arbitrary action that takes 5 minutes for 3 refs to agree upon. 95% of the time it should be able to be called live without any review. I'd rather they do something like the NBA does when reviewing these like they did with flops and penalize the players that react 3 seconds after any contact to trigger the review in the first place.
Not just have a guy stick his chin in your face.
And does anyone thing any of these makes the players safer? They're not wearing dresses out there.
Really pulling for Oregon and Marquette right know. Would give me 6 of the Sweet sixteen picks correct.
Oregon yes. Marquette nyet.
I would be pretty screwed if Marquette does not pull it out. I had them going to the Elite Eight.
Anyone else pick Oregon going this far? I did. I kind of thought it was obvious for them. A pretty easy walk to sweet 16, maybe further. Though, I think it stops after STL.
The PAC 12 was way underrated this year. Oregon looking good against St. Louis.
I think that Oregon dunk attempt landed in the upper deck
Louisville and Arizona advancing in blowouts - liking my picks for the final 4. Hope I am wrong in one of my picks and Michigan beats Florida in the elite 8.
are a tad boring. Did we get any football commits this weekend?
But Michael Wilbon is doing Turrible with his picks.
It's still early but I'm still right behind Al Horford near the top. Problem is only Butler and Syracuse wins can help tonight...first round misses screwed up the rest. But it's fun while it lasts.
Edit...I forgot about that other school in Kansas - Go Shockers!
Who do you all need to win tonight for your brackets?
I need St. Louis, Butler, Cuse, and the Zags (although I wouldn't mind seeing them lose as a 1 seed).
I would like Oregon, Butler, Zags and the Cuse to win.
re possible flagrant in St L-Oreg game
Going to give it right back with darling St. Louis not even showing up. So my night's success is probably dependent on Butler upsetting Marquette (thanks, Davidson).
Technically I have Cuse and the Zags winning but either could lose and help me in te long run.
And the crappiest blocking foul ever in the Oregon-St. Louis game. They owe SL like four after that.
same game,20 seconds later,flagrant review
about player safety in college basketball? i've been following cbball for a while now and i don't ever remember so many stoppages to review these mundane plays...
Often a player will drive to basket,get bodied hard to the floor with no foul being called because the defender 'got all ball'
Should have had that during my ill-fated marriage
that there won't be any real "home team" advantages in our regional. That is good. We seem to do good on neutral courts.
get an extra day and a half rest because Kansas-NC game tomorrow at 5PM.Winner be get home late Sunday night while our guys have been home since saturday afternoon.I was hoping we'd play Thurs. for that reason.
Butler is 10 of 25 and shooting 53.8% (7-13) from three-point land right now, good for an effective FG% of 54%. Six Marquette turnovers are starting to sting a little.
EDIT: So, I say that and Marquette starts to narrow the deficit a little bit. Still, now it is about one turnover per minute for the last ten for Marquette.
McGary, Hardaway and Robinson have had an outstanding tournament thus far, while Stauskas, Horford, Skip and Burke (except for his shooting) have been okay. Now if Lavert could just step up his game, Morgan contribute some solid minutes and a few more shots start dropping for Trey and Nik, look out.
The coaching staff has done an outstanding job.
If today's game was any indication, number 52 will not see any serious minutes for the rest of the year. A shame, but with McGary we have a player with just too much talent to not be out there for around 70% of the game.
if there is one more stoppage of play for a flagrant foul review, i'm gonna poop on a biscuit and feed it to my computer
Is the oddest thing I have ever read
Gonzaga game lol I hate it to
Charles Barkley is starting to look like he knows what he's talking about.
