    That would be cool. Coaches Cal and Pitino hate each other and so do the schools/fans. That would be a bloodbath.

    Definitely a more interesting story than another "Billy Donovan played for Pitino and now they're coaching against each other" lovefest.... :puke:

    Mostly I just want Bailer to lose, though.....

    Someone needs to tell Kevin Harlan that those Florida 3-pointers weren't for the lead.

    I was actually rooting for W. Washington to win the DII championship just so somebody from west of the Mississippi could make a good showing... :huh:

    I'm stunned that Louisville pulled that out. This is not one of Pitino's more talented teams.

    I'm getting disappointed with the work Billy Donovan is doing at Florida. He won those back-to-back titles in 05-06 and 06-07. Those '07 and '08 classes were supposed to be special. He didn't get much out of them the first few years (out of the tourney the next 3 seasons). I guess he missed and is now getting it back. Back in the tourney in 09-10 and then Elite 8s in 10-11 and 11-12. It's really good, but I expected more consistency.

    Just got back from the game. Awesome comeback by Louisville, I really like their fans, pure class. Florida went 8-14 from 3 in the first half and 0-9 in the second, how do you go that cold that fast?

    Awful charge call on Syracuse just now. The defender was in the circle and still moving into position. Took 2 points off the board, took away a FT opportunity, and then causes Jim Boeheim to get a 2-shot technical called on him.

    Refs need to learn to look at the defender's feet and also assume that a close call goes to the offense... like the NBA refs are so good at.

    Officiating has been terrible in this game, imagine that. They switched that one call about 3 times when they claimed that the SU player tipped the ball, which he didn't, and then that offensive basket interference call on OSU was a bad call.

    OSU is struggling against the zone and they aren't getting lucky from 3 like Wiscy did but Cuse is struggling offensively.

    Let's go Orange!!!

    :woot: I was worried there, but Florida finally cooled off. I got every pick right in my West bracket... EXCEPT the Mizzou loss to Norfolk. Now, let's go Ohio St!

    Officials are really getting out of hand by calling every nit-picky BS foul. Christmas got 2 quick fouls out of the half, apparently guarding a player is a foul now.

    There isn't any team that I even remotely like left in the tourney. I guess I will go for Louisville because of Pitino.

    Yeah. I loved how he handled things with that crazy chick he nailed on a bar room table (or something like that) and then went all stalker extortionist on him.

    He just went public and said, "Yeah, I did it. So what? I'm turning you into the cops and my image will be fine because... **** YOU! I'M RICK PITINO!".

    Not quite a hero. Just like him better than any other coach remaining.
