    No thread? Was one started by an ignored inmate? WTF? Anyway, RCJH.

    The Shockers were in quite a dogfight! Dayton put up a helluva battle. But dang! those turnovers. i cant believe how many times they coughed the ball up. certainly not a Shocker trademark.

    Seriously? That's it? One comment on how the Shockers won sloppy (debatable). One comment that is anti March and somebody hates direct tv commercials. Meanwhile...

    2016 National Champion and #1 seed Villanova craps out to Wisconsin. My Mountaineer's annihilated Notre Dame (Up yours Digger Phelps!) and we still have the bottom half of the second round schedule to get through today.

    I'd love to go riding, just like everybody else. But it's nasty raining outside. There's leftover corned beef and cabbage to devour. The garage fridge is full of beer and there are some damn good games on today.

    BTW Troidus... Boo Jayhawks. Should have whooped you both times. Your fans leave early. Real hall of fame coaches wear warm-ups. (Actually like and respect your coach. He's a good dude). Go Mountaineers!

    To be fair, I think everyone has some fans leave early when they're down by 14 with 2:58 remaining. It's not common to bounce back from that, but the Mountaineers were kind enough to lend a hand. :happay:lol3 (Bob Huggins is a hell of a coach. I hope he gets his health squared away.)

    The only time I root for DOOOK is when they play UNC, so I was happy for the Gamecocks today. Too bad about WSU. A couple of stupid fouls, and some brain-dead offense at the end sealed their fate.

    I'm hoping the AZ. Wildcats can pull it off.
    My cousin will pony up for tickets if they get far because he has season tickets.
    Since the finals are in Glendale, it would almost be a home game.

    I was hoping for an all Pac-12 final 4. USC messed that up but UCLA, OR and AZ can still do it.

    Go Pac -12, it was a tough division this year, so they are ready to rumble.

    Yep, that's what i'll be watching now. I'm not big KU fan but I guess I'll glance over once in a while.

    Looks like the ACC was way overrated

    I did not expect KU to blow out Purdue. Tyler Self now has time in all three games they've played.

    Having lived in Spokane for some time and attending games at the kennel years ago when they were simply a good local team I've got to pull for the Zags. It's amazing a school smaller than some CCs can have such an impact on a region. Go Zags.

    At this point, I'm OK with whoever wins, as long as it isn't UNC. So for today only, I'll be rooting for Kentucky.
