March Madness Tournament Games Thread
Anybody been watching? Lots of people think it is the best 4 days of sports in America. Wall to wall basketball, win or go home.

No upsets yet, although UNC-Asheville almost became my favorite 16 seed of all time. They led Syracuse for much of the game but lost. Some real "MAC Official - like calls" in that game, though. Funny how they all seemed to go in one direction. Conspiracy theorists could have fun with that one if anybody cared about UNCA.

Been watching the S.Dakota St.wabbits against Baylor. They were in it after a quick start but the tide is turning.

No surprise about UK whipping up on WKU.

Likewise, not surprised that Colorado St. lost to Murray State but the margin was shocking. An 18 - 2 run by the Racers after half doomed CSU. Sound familiar?

I think that Colorado will lose tonight to UNLV, too. They lucked out this year moving from the tougher B12 to the weaker PAC-12, whose regular season champ Washington didn't even make the dance. UNLV is a team who style will give CU fits.

Gonzaga pounding West Virginia. VCU/Wichita St. very close.

Still looking for this year's Cinderella team. Will there be one?

All the extra TV and internet analysis ruined upsets. I get the feeling that the 80's and early 90's upsets were fueled by the committee basically stuck using RPI as their only useful tool, so a team that nowadays would be a 11-13 seed could end up as a 15 and spring the odd upset. Murray State and Princeton were the closest 16's ever came to winning, and their conferences nowadays are usually 11-14 seeds now, with Murray State a 31-1 beast this year.

Honestly, if you have a smart phone, the $4 is totally worth it. You can put a game on the tv, a game on the computer, and a game on the phone, and just watch in pure bliss.

No, it's not worth it, and these early round games appear fixed. I'm watching IU and earlier Syracuse get away with MUGGING people and not get calls.

If theat's how they want to roll, I won't watch. Over it.

Any non BCS gets my vote.

Eddie B has already had to hang up his soft shoes.
LBSU, not a dog but an under based on size of program against the $ guys.
I think St. Mary's has a shot. When in Arizona I caught their championship tilt with Gonzaga that went OT. I like their size but the perimeter is slow. Could be their 'heel.

If the Bonnies can get past FSU and the Pugilistic Bearcats of Cincinnati they could make A LOT of noise. They play hard, have quicks both in and out. And have a skilled big who can go in and out. Beat Xavier at their own game.

I have OU getting past the Arborists and making the Owls play in day light. Will fall to the well Heel'd Rams of UNC. Groce then gets an offer to go big.
