Any thread will do. And quickly please, we have a good game on our hands.

Yeah, it is a good game. I just notified the admins.
 
2013-03-24 01:32:12 PM
Awesome, thanks again Admins!

GOOOOO UPSETS!!!

I really want Iowa State to win this game to complete the destruction of the West.

I'm torn on that. I fully do. But I also would love to see an all Big Ten Final Four, which is a very real possibility.

That would work too. Unfortunately, the odds of Purdue being one of those 4 teams is very, very small. Oh well, maybe next year will be better.

Well, unless they get in touch with a really good ticket broker....

My 2 teams in my at work pool (that they made us pick out of a hat) are Creighton and Duke.

I'd like to as well (IU alum).  But I was also thinking that that would be a pretty crappy final four/championship game for the rest of the country that's not a follower of the Big Ten.
 
2013-03-24 01:46:15 PM
It sure as hell does look like Craft got a piece of that.

Well, then it's about time we convert them!

Unless I'm not understanding how your pool works, that seems like a poorly organized/understood pool.

yeah, it's not going to happen.  But would it really be a bad thing?  I've been enjoying the hell out of this conference all year.

Iowa State seems to be playing a "Let's not guard the three point line at all" zone...

I'm not sure I understand it either but in general my bosses couldn't organize a 2 car funeral.


Has to be "fair" that way

thecpt: yeah, it's not going to happen. But would it really be a bad thing? I've been enjoying the hell out of this conference all year.


Agreed. I can't see it happening...the chances are pretty small. But it would be incredible to see how close it could be, with the teams knowing just about everything about each other. I'd love to see the coaching matchups and how they would try to play and come up with some craziness that hasn't really been seen.

haha niiiiiiiice

Oh well. At least you're guaranteed to get one team into the Sweet 16.
 
2013-03-24 01:53:50 PM
That's nothing but rewarding the flop there on that rebound. Questionable call.
 
2013-03-24 01:54:35 PM
Subby, your answers are YES.
 
2013-03-24 01:54:58 PM
Man, I believe the Cyclones are experiencing allergic reactions to the ball.  They keep handing it back to the Buckeyes.

2013-03-24 01:55:51 PM
Where is the foul there in the post? He was giving zero resistance.

Let me guess PAC-10 ref.
 
2013-03-24 01:56:03 PM
Figures, thread opens up and the game starts growing in the spread.

If only they could start penalizing intentional flops, most especially when shooting a three and falling over like a European soccer player.

Hehe, sounds like where I work, too.  Every Christmas party there's a vote amongst employees for employee of the year.  There's only around thirty of us.  One year one of our bosses was excited to say everyone got a vote.  I had to bite my tongue to keep from saying, "So nobody won, then?".

But these days one girl from mailing will always win, because that whole dept. is high school friends and they'll all vote for her -- then they'll go out and spend the bonus at the bars they go to each weekend.
 
2013-03-24 01:59:09 PM
ISU should try to get to the line. They can't shoot right now.

They should run this Bud Light commercial more.

The entire script, scenery and minute details are not yet burned into my brain yet.

Or just show her....she's pretty cute.

/first few times I actually thought it was clever....now, not so much
 
2013-03-24 02:05:26 PM
Wow, someone looks like they have something riding on this game.  Some of these fouls are ridiculous.  Fake foul on OSU and the makeup on ISU

Heh.

"I watch 8 college basketball games a week. I can name at least 3 starers for 90% of the teams in the tournament. Oh look, I drew Iona and North Carolina A&T".

"I'm a 48 year old housewife, who hasn't seen a game of basketball since high school. I twice asked someone which team LeBron was on. Oh look, I picked Duke and Ohio State."

Sounds better than the one they did at my work last year: 20 of us went through the hassle of picking 3 teams each in a snake-draft, but if your team was favored and didn't cover, your opponent owned your team. Last standing wins.
Since there was no control over spreads or which side of the line you get, we'd have been better off picking from a hat.
 
2013-03-24 02:08:45 PM
Cyclones should just start raining 3's now. They're just running 25 seconds of clock then taking a bad three anyway, might as well do it earlier.

That's mostly true, assuming you didn't peak in high school.

Wow....that's a hell of a WTF pool.

Ummm...this got very interesting very fast.

Dammit I'm not getting anything done again today.
