    Something's missing from this Michigan State team. The talent's fine, but they just don't seem to have that intimidating presence of years past.

    They seem really slow to me. Maybe its because I started drinking already.

    MSU has gone to the Final Four like 6 of the last 14 years. I think I picked them to the Elite 8

    Sometimes I find I have to check myself when rooting for the underdog. I have MSU in my final 8 yet I keep rooting for Valpo.

    Izzo is the Greek God of Final Four Appearances. Valpo is putting up a fight early on.

    Also as an aside, anyone know how I can get a watch party on the alumi website? There's a handful of buffs up in cheyenne where I am, and it'd be nice to watch with them.

    After filling out a couple of brackets, after Miami, CU's bracket really opens up to get to the elite 8. No disrespect to Illinois, Butler, and Marquette but they don't scare me as much as some of the teams in the other brackets.

    bucknell is missing a lot of easy shots and somehow missed an open layup. 6-4 butler.

    Is Valpo gonna break CSU's low mark of 41 points last year?

    hope not - it's nice to see them with one of those records no one wants.

    This Bucknell-Butler game is SLOOOOW, but, I guess that was expected with these teams.

    I was just going to write that. Bucknell seems like they cant throw the ball into the ocean, but are only down 5. muscala has less than 4 pts.

    Bucknell is highly conservative. Tried to warn everyone.
