    Didn't watch the first game, but Hampton earned the chance to get sent home by Kentucky.

    Watching the BYU vs Ole Miss game. Entertaining style of basketball being played by both sides. Would love to see the Buffs adopt some components of BYU's offense. Would be a huge advantage up here at altitude. Winner of the game plays Xavier.

    BYU loses despite making 15 threes.

    62 second half points by Ole Miss.

    No defense played in that 2nd half. Lots of entertaining basketball though

    Really do not like Dayton playing a true home game. Not appropriate for the NCAA Tournament. Great for tickets but for the sake of the NCAA Tournament this game should've been moved to Louisville or another nearby host site.

    The loss almost makes me want to create an account over there. Almost.

    I don't necessarily disagree with him. Depended on matchups, but I thought CSU belonged in the Dance and had a good shot at winning a game or two. I also thought Temple deserved to make it. I don't see how it can be justified to take teams with RPIs in the 60s while leaving out teams with RPIs sitting around 30.

    I'm confused what the criteria is. I thought I understood, but now I don't. It seems like being a P5 and the overall SOS including conference play is now being weighted more heavily rather than focusing so much on non-conference SOS. But even then it doesn't make total sense this year.

    Seems like the committee recognized that tons of schools in the non P5 schools were just loading up their OOC with RPI whales, so they adjusted the formula to reward teams that play a harder schedule from top to bottom. Still don't see how an RPI 30 team gets left out and UCLA gets in. The P5 are running the show at the NCAA though, and it becomes more apparent with every event they put on.

    However, I will still laugh at the goats, because they would be laughing at us if the situation was reversed.

    The only way to prove you belonged in the NCAA is to win the NIT. The way to prove you didn't belong is to lose to a nobody in the first round.

    I was annoyed that the Rams were snubbed, but guess I was wrong.

    CSU got screwed, but I'm disappointed that Eustachy didn't have them ready for the NIT.

    When CU was snubbed a few years back, Tad had them ready to go and they played a great, fun tournament that helped propel them the following year.

    So glad our guys were tough enough to use the 2011 snub as a reason to come out and prove themselves by making Madison Square Garden instead of quitting on the season like CSU. It's their loss. As infuriating as being snubbed was, that NIT run to MSG did much to develop maturity and learn to deal with adversity.

    It'd be nice if we could look back on the CBI this season as a point where this team started to figure some **** out.

    Northeastern has blown it ... no one wanted to take the last shot, and they lost the ball.
