Default March Madness

Anyone watching?
Do you take the field or Kentucky? 34-0.

So now it starts 0-0.

Hogs are a 5th seed. Bad seed. #5 is the most upset seed in this tournament.

My favorite time of the year, after NFL season. I can't believe UCONN couldn't beat SMU to make the tournament, we came so close. Oh well can't win it every year. I usually fill out at least 10 brackets on ESPN, I'm taking Kentucky on every single one of them. Whatever team I pick every year they lose and I want Kentucky to lose, hence I'm taking Kentucky.

What logic. The Jinx breaker. HHS.

No team has ever had 49% in PRESEASON to win it all. That is just unheard of. We played them twice. At their place and a neutral court. Both were blowouts. We are the best SEC had to offer this year. It is not even close. We took out SMU at their place. Kentucky can play size. they can run. then can play inside out. They can shoot from outside. Their bench would start in most teams. I don't know how Coach Cal makes them believe in TEAM FIRST. These are all-McDonalds high ego guys!!

By the way, Huskies women are making their own history. Still undefeated this year.

Calipiri is popping out top draft picks every year. Thats why McDonalds All Americans are lining up to play for him every year. Even last year with 4-5 freshman players starting by tournament time Calipiri turned them into a complete team. They were all over the place during the regular season. If it wasn't for Shabbaz Napier they would probably be going for back to back championship this year. Calipiri's one and done business is booming.

Dawgs are dancing! Been to almost all of the home games this year and even road-tripped to see a few road games. Probably the most invested I've ever been for UGA basketball. Could see us making a run to the Sweet 16 if we get hot.

In terms of winning it all, I'm going with Wisconsin and Frank "the Tank" Kaminsky.

Ya but who have they really played though. 1 early season game against Kansas and sprinkle in UNC and Louisville in between. They played good teams. Kentucky is loaded top to bottom but they are not invincible. A final four match up against Wisconsin can go both ways.

Georgia is a good team. A tournament bound team. You saw how Arkansas handled them. We got run off the court by Kentucky.

Early season they beat Kansas (2 seed) by ...... 32 points. UNC (4 seed) by 14. UCLA (11 seed) by 39 points. Texas, L'Ville all good teams lost to UK.

They haven't lost to anyone. Wisky lost 3. Duke, Rutgers and Maryland. Would have lost to Michigan State had B1G refs didn't help the top seed.

Big12 darling Iowa State's dance is over. #3 seed gone packing by #14 UAB. Woohoo!!!!

Baylor another #3 seed from Big12 gone home. Courtesy by #14 Georgia State.

Texas bounced by Butler. President's bracket is busted already.

The only team standing is Kentucky from SEC.
LSU, Georgia, Ole Miss all exited in the first round. Hogs got by the first round against Wofford. Couldn't beat UNC. Turnovers. We were suppose to be the master of it in creating havoc. UNC was suppose to be careless just like all season.
+++
Anyways,
Virginia was all season #1. At the end Villanova took that spot and Virginia was #2 at the same bracket. Guess what? Both are out. Hahaha!!! So is over rated Big 12 Kansas joining Texas, Baylor etc. WVU will face Kentucky. It is already over.

If Michigan State takes care of business (O'khalamma), Big 12 will not have anyone after this round.

Seems like L'Ville, Duke, Kentucky and Wisky in the final four. It could be Rick Pitino (ex UK coach) vs Cal (current UK coach) again.

lol, that is what you get when talking trash against this Kentucky team. WVU guard is getting it. So does his coach Bob Huggins. 78-39 final score. This is the lowest score ever in NCAA tourney after shot clock was instilled. This tournament, Texas has the lowest score of 48 against Butler in a low scoring affair.

36 and won. Hahaha!!! Brilliant. Next up: N Dame.

Cal is two wins away. Got a scare from N Dame. Although Cal didn't admit that N Dame was the hardest test this year. I agree. They won by one point and they had a game that went to over time.

Chora Puke, Michigan State, and Wisconsin are the bridesmaid.

9 McDonald's American couldn't get it done against Wisconsin. Even though I picked Kentucky to win it all I was rooting for Wisconsin the entire way through. I knew they would be the only real threat to Kentucky reaching the final. No one gave any other team a realistic chance, this is why I love march madness. Monday will be a good game. I hope Wisconsin takes it, they haven't won a title in 70+ years.

Perfect shmerfect...I wasn't following march madness this year because of CWC. As I was watching the Notre Dame game I knew I'd pick the field against KU. They'd be playing 2 teams as good as if not better than ND and they're struggling mightily against them. Watching how Duke dismantled MSU in game one I was convinced a match up between Duke-KU would be a toss up at best if not favor Duke. I'm also rooting for the Badgers -this is a matchup between the two best teams for sure.

Cal is dying for these Harrison Twins to declare to the NBA

Duke vs Wisconsin should be a great game.

Sam Dekker vs Justise Winslow is going to be the Matchup to watch.

There were better teams than the 9 McDonald All Americans who didn't win.

Phi-Slamma-Jamma had starting 5 playing in the NBA at one point. 2 in NBA Hall of Fame.

We move on to College Baseball now.

Great game by Wisky. However, I feel like Puke is gonna win it. (Tarheel fan )

Well well well. 2017 and Puke is out of the tourney already.

So how is your bracket? (Did anyone fill it out?)
So far I have
East:
Baylor at sweet 16. No one advancing for the elite 8.
West:
Zag and Zona still alive.
South:
UNC and UK.
Midwest:
Kansas and Oregon.
