    indiana finished me. Still not sure what I was thinking, I hated that pick as soon as the bracket went final.

    Then tonight should be your night.

    The only game IMO that might be a blowout is the first one ... but if the UO team that has shown up with a chip on their shoulder for the first two games shows up, then it will at least be close, and I wouldn't put it past them to actually beat Louisville.

    The Gulf Coast-Florida game has tons of blowout potential. FGCU has been a blast to watch and I hope it doesn't go that way, but the biggest Cinderella's bow out in ugly fashion to superior teams often.

    Need the gayhawks and Louisville to win tonight. Michigan state, too. Those three things happen and I might actually win my pool.

    You may be correct. If Florida can keep it to a half-court game and prevent FGCU from taking advantage of their speed and athleticism, Florida will win. Just don't think it will be a blowout either way.

    FGCU reminds me a lot of UNLV in the "Runnin' Rebels" era (1989-91) ... not so far as the level of skill or accomplishment of that team, but in the style of play they employ. But as we all saw in the 1991 National semis against Duke (at least those of us old enough to remember :huh:) a good half-court defense can frustrate that kind of attack.

    KU's Eljiah Johnson with the early flagrant foul for nutshotting Michigan's Mitch McGary less than two minutes into the game....

    Oregon has fought back again to get it within 11. But Louisville can turn that from 11 to 20 faster than any team in the nation.

    Oregon has the offense just not the defense to hold up

    Wonder if that has effected McGary's game ... he has absolutely no soft touch on in-paint shots, has missed several layups and put-backs.

    Ducks hanging around. Kazemi has really turned it up a notch. A deep run by Oregon is not going to help us much from a recruiting competition perspective.

    I disagree. I think we would get a boost from a deep run by any Pac 12 school ... the conference has been disrespected for the two seasons we've been in it. I'll take success by any Pac 12 team right now ... it can only help us IMO.

    The conference profile has already been helped by 3 teams getting past the first round after what has universally been condemned as underseeding, and two teams making it to the Sweet 16. I have confidence in Tad that he can deal with any intra-conference competition in regards to recruiting.

    Plus I think UCLA's program may very well be in chaos for the next couple of years, failing a blockbuster announcement in the next few days.

    McGary gets all ball on a clean block and gets called for the foul because the guy goes down from his own lack of body control.

    GAWD .. refs SUCK!!! :bang:

    And I HATE the Squawks!

    KU puts 6 men on the court after a TO ... should have been an automatic technical, but were allowed to remedy it.

    Go figure. :rolling_eyes:
