|1 week 15 hours ago||I was thinking the same thing||
I was thinking the same thing earlier this season in RE: to making the TV timeouts at the 15, 10, and 5 minute marks, instead of every 4. I'm sure they would cram another minute to minute-thrity of commercials into each timeout but it'd almost be worth it to get more gameplay/flow and to actually rid of one of the timeouts.
|1 week 15 hours ago||Any reasons for the lane||
Any reasons for the lane widening?
Liveball timeouts being elimitated would be great. Or maybe they could just enforce some of the timeout rules e.g. I saw multiple times in the Tournament, maybe even against us, where a player was falling out of bounds with the ball and a timeout was awarded to them. That is NOT supposed to be allowed anymore. But eliminating Timeouts while the 10 second rule is in play, at the very least, would be a good rule change (or tweaking that rule, where if a timeout is called while still in the backcourt, the 10 second clock is still in play once play resumes, and once the shot clock hits 25, boom, turnover).

|2 weeks 5 days ago||I'm with you, more so in||
I'm with you, more so in regards to your first paragraph/sentences. I won't go into detail TOO much but a couple of your lines are where I'm at in. This shit sucks. It sucks so much that I have a hard time rationalizing why I feel this way. It's fandom, sure, but it's more than that; at least it seems like it. This emotional investment I, this nobody from the Midwest not even in Michigan, have for these young groups of hardwood and gridiron players isn't sensible and has to be something more than just "being a fan". What, I'm not sure anymore. If I made money off of my fandom by blogging or gambling, something, it would/could seem more reasonable (I know that's an unfair statement in a way, in and I don't mean anything offensive by that as I'm sure that can come across in ways I really don't even know right now).
I still digressed...more than I wanted. But I'm at a juncture in life where this is wearing on me too much and I'm not settled in or in a secure enough spot for this to drain me and take up so much of my life. And to relate to more of your post, all of the above holds true especially when we start factoring in how all of these games are officiated and supervised (i.e. the NCAA and the shitty rules, the money and greed) by such half-assed people/organizations. I'm sure this comes across bitch-like, I'm aware some of you are hardened badasses.

It was a bit of a subconscious thing and took me a minute to realize what I was doing. I just can't cheer for Sparty to advance; and I'll be glad to hear about that Seniors to the Final Four streak ENDED.

Good half of basketball I thought. A little low scoring, sure so I'm sure that turns some people off but the defensive aspect of the game can be entertaining and I feel this one so far has been (no, I'm not a Bo Ryan style of play-lover, not even close!).
It'll be interesting to see what tweaks/changes are made for the 2nd half. Maybe none? I think these teams match up pretty well even though their styles aren't exactly similar so it may just be a slug fest, so to speak; who can hit the most shots (no shit sherlock...but I don't think there's a talent discrepancy so it comes down to true fundamental basketball, not always seen these days).

Good chess match going on so far. Pretty damn good defense by both teams as tough shots are being forced on both ends; both are also hitting a few of said shots, helping to put some actual points on the board. Nigel Hayes has been huge for Wiscy, getting a couple tough baskets to fall to keep Wiscy within striking range. Nick Johnson has done the same for Arizona. Kaminski and Tarczewski are both playing damn well, also.

|3 weeks 4 hours ago||Does Beilein work on||
Does Beilein work on different out of bounds plays, possibly with a different in-bounder (not Caris, unless he's worked his kinks out)? Spike does okay, his smaller stature usually not a problem, but his "passing" wasn't great tonight. Granted, it's tough to doback to back to back to back to back in-bounds plays without being able to move, for any team. I guess I assume Beilein strives for perfection, like he should, and may tweak some things to an area that can hurt this team at critical moments.
This isn't the only thing I took away from the game. I thought 38 minutes was dominated by Michigan.

Fair enough. I do agree. The end of the game counts for quite a bit! It was such a great game for the first 30 minutes to me, though.

Agree somewhat. I think/thought Creighton is a damn good team. I mean they lead the nation in ppp (p/100p). In theory they had the firepower to match up to Baylor but in reality they didn't have a 7 footer, a la Frank Kaminsky, who is a pretty nice neutralizer to this zone. That's not the full story of course but in the game last weekend Creighton tried to go down low but it just wasn't happening like it is tonight and I think Baylor was better able to guard shots, hence Creighton getting very little good looks.
|3 weeks 1 day ago||Why? Because that's what||
Why? Because that's what they've been best at and honestly they are pretty good at it, especially this hot stretch they've been on. They've also been playing this zone almost strictly for a month now.

I'm by no means a Florida homer nor am I trying to argue. But you have to think part of the reason Pitt. is building Brick City is because Florida's defense is pretty stifling. It may not show itself as such all the time, their "press" I think takes away from how good they are in the half court, but they are tough to score on. I have a feeling Pitt isn't a great jump shooting team; today isn't helping that perception. They were a top-20 KenPom team, though, definitely no slouch at scoring the ball throughout the season.

Didn't see the shot at the end. Pretty much a 1-possession game though for intensive porpoises(!). Pitt is acutally playing fairly well. Like Kenny just said, the cumulative effect of the full court press I have a feeling will yield some points in the second half and give Florida an edge by the time the last 2:00 rolls around and before a free throw shooting contest starts. However, if Pitt keeps playing smart and doesn't turn the ball over, getting some shots to go, they'll hang around and make a game of this.

Right! "FOul...No, TWO fouls"
Or in the OK St.-Gonzaga games, the refs were probably wishing the could call 7 fouls at once.

Bryce Cotton is a fuggin' beast. Not sure the Fryars can keep up and/or pull this off but he's working his ass off to try and help them knock UNC off.

Ugh I hate doing this but another officiating blunder. Called a T on Memphis player for hanging on the rim while TWO GW players were underneath him, one with his hand on him. Such shit.

Worst game ever. Seriously. OK State an go to hell for starters, followed by the officials.

Just like last night, I'm angry with myself for forcing myself to root for bad teams...Fuck Okie St. I say.
This game also happens to be one of the worst games I've ever watched...the 2nd half that is. No hyperbole.
|4 weeks 10 hours ago||Oh my Lordddd....Anyone||
Oh my Lordddd....Anyone watching the Ok St.-Gonzaga game? It's become a literal whistle fest. And most aren't really the fault of the officials, surprisingly enough. The players are forgetting what's legal and what's not.
Edit: Actually the officials are helping this mess of a game out.

Right. And I dunno, since these games are so fast these days and officials "can't keep track of everything", add another official or two so they CAN watch the things that need to be watched, instead of relying on shitty video.

And Peteway just loses a fairly easy two point transition bucket off his leg out of bounds. Not a good outing for him. Three fouls now, to boot.
|4 weeks 15 hours ago||That is occuring at a high||
That is occuring at a high rate for them right now but I agree that hasn't been their MO, so to speak, so that wasn't quite what I'm thinking of.
More, Duke gets loads of very open looks. They are hitting shot after shot after shot in this game. I know we hit our fair of shots but many of ours come off somewhat-to-very contested looks. Dukes are 90% OPEN. And they nail them. It's keeping them in this game, quite honestly.
|4 weeks 15 hours ago||So we get compared to Duke||
So we get compared to Duke quite a bit as far as offensive prowess. However, anyone see a main difference?
This is a real question...One I have an answer to, but seeing what everyone thinks.
|4 weeks 15 hours ago||How the fuck is that a BLOCK||
How the fuck is that a BLOCK foul??? Call the goddamn charge and be fair about it...
|4 weeks 15 hours ago||Damn Peteway cant get a shot||
Damn Peteway cant get a shot to fall. They will lose if that continues.
Also, on a semi-related note, Nebraska can't really get anyone to hit a shot.

Mercer just ripped Jabari Parker! 2 point game again. Duke needs to quit hitting 3/4s of the Threes they take.
Mercer hits a three!

Day 2 of heaven. Two good ones on to watch. However, Baylor's uniforms are an atrocity against mankind and literally streak across the screen like a damn highlighter (I have a very mid-level tv, so I know it's not a low quality tv issue).

12-4 on the day. Lost a Sweet 16 team in Oklahoma. Good day of basketball. Would have liked to seen NC St. and Cincinnati advance but I'll surivive...but probably won't be making much dough this year (though it's obviously too early to tell).

I really underestimated the A-10 apparently, I have them with zero wins in this tourney.

Holy shit I see a much different game that some of you, apparently. I've not comment if all you see are turnovers and missed shots and a theoretical lack of effort.
|4 weeks 1 day ago||Well, Yea. I mean, I don't||
Well, Yea. I mean, I don't mean to rip on the guy by the above. He is who he is. He's limited in athletic abilites compared to many other bigs, yet he's very much succeeded in that role even under those limitations. That says something about the guy. He isn't a great player, no one will argue that, but he plays hard and plays a very fundamental game down low and that makes up for his lack of overall talent.
We all wish he could be a more dominant or even more typical Big Man but we've had to settle for who he is. That said, we've won quite a few games with him playing that role; that's also hard to argue against.

Quick chime in. Three things have been done by Jordan Morgan that have rarely been done.
A dribble drive dunk, a blocked shot, and a jump shot from 15/16 feet.

Good fun by Dayton here. Big bucket by Ohio to stop the 9-3 run.
This game seems a toss up at this point. Going to be an interesting 2nd half. The longer Dayton stays ahead or even within a couple points I'm wondering if Ohio will start tightening up.

Took today off. Already have tomorrow off. Then took the entire weekend off as well. Is that bad?
N.C. State is my "big" up set as well. I found myself, even before the front page post by Brian, Seth, Ace, Mathlete, etc. about their brackets and a few of them noting how it was hard to pick upsets this year, saying that exact thing. There really weren't just many for me to pick. In a few of the ESPN brackets I have Kentucky and/or Okie St. advancing to the Final 4, but again my biggest upset in my real bracket is one measley 12 over a 5.
This may all come back to bite me in the ass and I'll realize I didn't know the teams as well as I thought I did (I watched a lot of college basketball this year...again) but to me this year's bracket is different. The teams are different. There isn't a great one, but a few can play that way, when the moons align, but when all's said and done the better teams to me will likely prevail most of the time. It's all down to the matchups and what the players had for a pre-game meal at this point, and a little fate and I'm just pumped to be able to watch for four-straight days!
