(ESPN)   Will Kentucky's Kiddie Cats do what the Fab Five couldn't? Will UConn break Kentucky's tourney win streak with a bookend victory? One thing's for sure - they'll be fighting like cats and dogs. It's your 2014 Men's NCAA Basketball Championship thread   (scores.espn.go.com) divider line 329

I"m shocked there are any couches left in Kentucky. Must be a lot of IKEAs there, or maybe several large couch factories?

Sorry Fark honchos but I have to root for UConn, as they beat the woulda-shoulda-coulda Cyclones.

The wife repaints furniture artistically as a hobby/side income and thus trolls Craigslist for cheap pieces to repaint. Over the weekend she saw a massive jump in people posting ads like this one for $20:

We have a couch. It can burn. It is not comfortable to sleep on. It is not comfortable to sit on (really.)
If you have a truck and maybe some cash, come get it.
This couch can catch fire.

As a Friar, I cannot possibly root for any team currently in the Asshole Athletic Conference, especially THAT shiat-tastic one.

So...question:  Are we allowed to loudly, rudely root for UConn, or will that buy us a "till end of game" ban?

Purely asking.  I have absolutely, as they say, no dog in this fight.

Rooting for Kentucky is like rooting for the bank in the foreclosure case of an old ladies home.

Not if you're a fan of a Catholic Big East team.  WAY lesser of two evils.

There are purveyors of alcohol and painkillers who just wet themselves with anticipation.

\and on that note, let's have a swig of the Ev.

I don't know who'll win the game but I know that Jim Calhoun won the coveted NCAA Chutzpah Award. In a recent interview, the guy who got Connecticut banned from the NCAA tournament due to his infinitesimal graduation rate criticized Calipari over his one-and-done policy,
 
2014-04-07 08:24:09 PM  
I'm a UK alum and lifelong fan. I want to see the Cats win, but I have no doubt this will be a tight game all the way through. Anything less than a nailbiter would be a complete disservice to the rest of what has been the wildest tournament in memory.

On a more serious note, the selection committee royally farked up this year. This is the lowest seeded matchup in tournament history. If UK wins, they'll tie the record for the lowest seeded team to win. But more to the point, were they ever truly an 8-seed in any realistic way or was UConn a 7-seed? Same goes for UL as a 4-seed. Dumb.
 
2014-04-07 08:28:11 PM  
One thing is certain: at the end of the game the CATS will have either 3 times the number of National Championships as UConn...or twice as many National Championships!

/GO BIG BLUE!!!

Calhoun isn't shy about talking smack to anyone (case in point)  He has never liked Calipari.

UConn and UMass used to play every year, even after UConn joined the Big East.  Pretty sure that stopped when Calipari became the UMass head coach.

Anyway, go UConn (sorry Drew)

They didn't seed. They bracketed the pairings to get the matchups they wanted.

/are you not NCAA Entertained?

Enough with the new Kid Rock set.  The Final Four is not the Super Bowl, stop with the unrelated entertainment CBS.

SquiggsIN: Are any of the players playing (not bench-riding, actually in the game) for Kentucky actually going to get a degree from Kentucky in the next 2 or 3 years?


I'll just leave this here.

Good times, good times.

2014-04-07 09:08:30 PM  
Wow, they got Kid Rock and Darius Rucker to appear at the Final Four! Those guys are usually so hard to book and selective about their appearances.
 
2014-04-07 09:09:04 PM  
Go Uconn

Holy crap.  Looks like I'm rooting for the Cats tonight, and not just for the free TF.

This game is going to start at like 930pm isn't it?
 
2014-04-07 09:10:30 PM  
Good God, the NCAA is getting as bad as the NFL and MLB at dragging these big games out.
 
2014-04-07 09:11:29 PM  
I should be doing more for this game than just sitting in UK pajama pants watching the game with only 2 beers in the house. 
Might take a victory lap downtown though. 

/I got work tomorrow

I saw both their games in Birmingham that year (as we lost to them in OT because someone thought it'd be a good idea to have the worst shooting PG we had out on the floor at the end of the game).  They were ridiculous.

Newspaper lied to me. It said it was supposed to start at 9PM EDT. I turned it on at 9 to skip all of the pregame nonsense.

Nah, it's when Duke loses in the tourney.
