I know this is probably the kiss of death, and it will end up being a 20pt win .......... but don't look now, the ACC would take a major hit with that loss ...

http://awfulannouncing.com/ratings/despi...urner.html

According to a press release, CBS, TNT, TBS and TruTV averaged a 5.9 household rating, up 5 percent from last year’s 5.5. In fact, that 5.9 is the third highest average rating for an opening Thursday since 1991, the first year every NCAA Tournament game was shown on TV.

So, NO.

Wonder how much streaming is affecting that ... positively ... on what are otherwise workdays????

IE, the March Madness Live app on phones lets you watch pretty much any game, any time, if you have a login for a cable/sat account with those channels.

MY interest is drying up.

Geez, some people only come here to make sure they put others down. Grow up.

Very bad possession by SMU there at the end. USC advances.

Should have started the drive 3-4 seconds earlier to leave time for a rebound and put back, or a tip in.

I saw USC come back from 17 points down in the Second half vs Providence to win. They're an interesting team. If they could put together a full 40 minutes like the second half vs Providence, they could go far.

But otherwise, this tournament has been very boring so far.

Not the one I had in mind but still cool, other than that it's an AAC upset.

We're still waiting for a really big upset. Top-4 seeds are 11-0 so far.

12-0, you mean. Texas Southern might as well just stayed in bed.

SWAC schools operate on DII budgets.

RE: **The official NCAA Tournament thread**
In fact, of the remaining four games for the top 4 seeds, which of these do people think will have the smallest margin of victory??

1 Kansas v 16 UC Davis
2 Duke v 15 Troy
2 Kentucky v 15 N Kentucky
3 UCLA v 14 Kent State


I'm gonna go for N Kentucky, but I have no idea why.
