Only missed 2 so far. Arizona, but only had them once (Wes Clark is a stud). Also missed Va Tech. Rooting hard for NMSU and Texas today for the sake of my bracket. Everyone have a nice and safe weekend.

when I don't do brackets (gimme chaos), I'm down for cheering for one and only one B1G team today.  My old neighbor played at PU in the late 80s/90s and was the "guy you love to hate" who ended up playing in the NBA for awhile.  Nicest guy in the world so Boiler Up!

I think Providence - Texas A&M will be a tight game, I had trouble picking. The winner of this likely plays UNC next...... who would potentially be our next opponent, obviously

Providence is running the same offense we ran in high school.

"This game is setting basketball back 40 years" isn't necessarily a bad thing.

Bracket is in the top 10% after yesterday, but the majority of my picks today are upsets....wish me luck (#needchaos):

  • Providence
  • Butler
  • College of Charleston
  • Texas
  • Syracuse
  • Marshall
  • Kansas State

Good news is that the B10 teams were high seeds and avoided a quality 11/12 team, or we might have two out already, and with Purdue in some trouble.  Geez

3 Big 10 teams have struggled against double digit seeds,ACC trounced Big 10,only 4 Tourney teams, poor non conf.performance.Most are blaming "rust" but maybe,just maybe the Big 10 isn't very good this year..Stay tuned.

Umm, Purdue is looking like they will win by 20-25. OSU controlled most of their game, even though it was pretty close and very entertaining. And we controlled our game most of the time, even though it was ugly as fuck.

I’d say the conference is in fine shape.
