    It's been a great season. March Madness will awesome. I'm just hoping there aren't too many upsets or else the Final Four could turn into a bore.

    I don't think there will be a lot. Therell be some, but the top 15-20 teams are so strong it's gonna be hard for a Bucknell to excel.

    It's going to be a good tournament, but I think there will be a lot of surprises/disappointments in the early rounds.

    Good game between Iowa and Michigan State tonight. MSU won, but it was hard fought.

    Really good defense played by both teams. It was aided by the referees not calling much out top, but both teams were right on each other the whole time. It concerns me that State's been terrible out of timeouts this year. They never seem to get a decent shot. Out-of-bounds plays are pretty much just throw it into the backcourt. Why can't they just throw it up to the rim for Payne every once in a while?

    Izzo said it best. Didn't deserve to win but you get lucky every now and then

    I have a bet with Krish the Fish on tomorrow's game. Loser is buying Cohiba Lanceros.

    Why can't Indiana ever beat Wisconsin? I think it's now 12 consecutive losses to the Badgers. :confused:

    That was a beatdown.

    Good first half by both MSU and OSU. I hate Craft

    There is a long and storied tradition at Syracuse of losing big games. Much better teams than this one have lost to much worse teams than Louisville.

    For me, the only thing more enjoyable than a Duke tournament loss is a Rick Pitino tournament loss. He is truly the scum of the college basketball coaching ranks.

    I have no strong opinion about Pitino, but I detest everything about Jim Boeheim. He's a thin-skinned, Napoleonic bitch, and his teams are full of wannabe gang-bangers who repeatedly piss down their leg as soon as it's required that they actually show toughness. They'll be out the first weekend.

    The B1G championship game is no disappoint. As good as I suspected it would be. The Buckeyes and Badgers are going at it hard.

    That's the thing about 'Cuse though, when you think they are going to go out in the first round, they go 3-4 rounds deep and when they have a strong team that should go deep, they lose to southwestern christian poly tech. They are the most frustrating program in college basketball in that regard. This team has no business getting out of the second round but depending on who is their bracket, I would be shocked if they go to the sweet 16 or final 8. That stupid 3-2 zone gives a lot of teams trouble and they can shoot the 3 ball.

    Burke v. VCU's defense should be fun to watch in the second round. Arizona-New Mexico is another potential matchup I'm looking forward to. Indiana-NC State would be up and down. Tip times are out now: Michigan State-Valpo is the first at 12:15 Thursday.

    Looking at the brackets, I think all the number 1 seeds face potential trouble and none may make the Final Four. I think Louisville seems to have the easiest route to the Final Four but it won't be a cakewalk for them either, St. Louis or Michigan State could beat them
