Mrtraveler01: That and I picked Belmont over Arizona.

I wish I could say I was drunk when I made this bracket but I really wasn't.


I think I was when I had Okla State going to the sweet 16 in one of my brackets.

Actually I was 6/8 in both my brackets, messed up Davidson and OkSU in the one, but didnt have an OkSU going farther so far.  Why was Oregon a 12?

Yall care about my brackets dammit

Torrent of Rubbish: Tangential, but has anybody watched CSU this year? Seems like a pretty generous seeding and opponent for Missouri, but I haven't seen them.


They're tough.  Senior laden, and they attack the glass like no one else.  It's far from a gimme for Mizzou.

Torrent of Rubbish: bionicjoe: Reason #4849543798453 I can't stand corporate America.
All the NCAA tournament floors re-branded with NCAA logos, black lines, and blue letters so they're all the same.
Part of the fun was watching all the different teams on different floors. Wildcats vs. Wildcats on a 3rd Wildcats' floor. Sycamores vs. Salukis on the Sooners' floor.

Assholes.

According to some sports writer's tweet, a Belmont player was told that he couldn't sit with his teammates if he didn't pour his Powerade into an official NCAA Gatorade bottle. Second-hand info, but I'll support it because it feeds my existing opinion of the NCAA.


Posted this to FB too and got this reply from a reliable source.
They require people in the press room to pour their drinks into NCAA-approved cups. 

*sigh*

Both of my brackets were filled out while drunk, and one of them is 7/8 so far and doing well for the current 4 games. But I have Gonzaga going to the national championship (they were a #1 seed!) which apparently isn't too likely.

The other bracket is doing pretty bad.

Gators win it all in both!

I for one am still getting over their game last year with Norfolk State.

Yeah, this has been in a few press sources as well. They can't even have BOTTLED WATER without some officially-branded NCAA sponsor on it.

Go Cal

2013-03-21 09:07:02 PM  
I wish I had checked to see that Cal was playing in San Jose. That's basically a home game for them.

Erk. Crabbe and Solomon already have 3 fouls each for Cal.  That's gonna cost them if it stays close.

Yeah...UNLV got jobbed.  Cal is underseeded at 12, has a home game, and already lost to the Rebels in the regular season.

UNLV very very rarely wins a game when they are favored in the tourney.

I'm not at the game, but I would suspect the home game advantage doesn't apply that much in this case - San Jose is an easy trip from Vegas, and most Cal fans expected them to be stuck on the East Coast somewhere (like they have been just about every tourney trip I can remember since the Kidd-Murray days).

True, but Cal very very rarely wins a game in the postseason, period.

Is that Bennett from UNLV considered a one-and-done'r? Because he's getting exposed pretty hard in this game.

The commercials this year have been pretty entertaining actually.

I haven't seen one yet that seems completely annoying like in past years.

JayCab: I wish I had checked to see that Cal was playing in San Jose. That's basically a home game for them.


Yeah, the guys on the CBS bracket show pointed that out immediately. One guy yelled out, "They broke their bracketing principles! Those two teams played each other during the season. And you've got Cal as a 12 seed playing in San Jose, that could be trouble for UNLV!"

So I decided to drink the Kool-Aid Flavor-Aid NCAA-approved Gatorade and put Cal into the Sweet Sixteen in 2 of my 3 brackets.
