    i have one quick question that always baffled me:


    why is there no "North" bracket?

    why is it midwest , east, west, and south?


    (and please dont tell me it is where all the colleges reside geographically; it isnt)

    thanks.

    Hmm... hadn't realized this. And I don't know the answer.

    I'm excited about the Butler/Syracuse game tonight. It would be nice to see the Bulldogs come away with a win, but I'm not expecting it. Folks around these parts are hyped about the game, and rightly so. Go Bulldogs!

    I didn't expect a start this good for Butler.

    The officiating in the UW v. WV game is fucking shameful.

    eh, I would say Washington, but then again I'm a Husky fan - its been bad both ways. They've just been all over the place with the kind of fouls they call. UW has been called for about 4 charges, and dont seem to be getting any fouls when they hacked inside.

    One of the things that really sucks about basketball is the influence of officials in the outcome and the degree to which errors are made. The game is so fast that calls are going to be missed and games won or lost on those misses. Ditto for soccer. There's a scoring chance taken away because of an incorrect offsides or flopping call about every other minute, which is ridiculous in a game that averages about 2.5-2.8 goals a game on the pro level.

    That's one of the things I really like about curling. It's self sufficient.

    Butler has the second best arena in college basketball so I support their success.
