And this is a great point


No 16 has ever lost to a 9 either, lots of positive trends in their favor

Because of Brad Stevens, I learned it was never over until the clock hits zero. Today looked to be over, down 5 in the last few seconds. Made it interesting with what was the best look you could ask given the circumstances. Baldwin's shot was almost on the same spot of the floor as Gordon Hayward's infamous near make!

Please, for the love of god, get Syracuse out of this tournament. Its brutal watching their games, besides the fact that they shouldn't be in the tourney and I'll have to start hearing their fans all over again deja vu after what happened two years ago.

say what you will the Cuse is generally always game ready come March, sometimes even April


I think PSU should have gotten the nod but doubt would be watching them now if they had.

Well those are two hours of my life I will never get back. A fantastic tournament marred by about the worst game I've ever seen in my life. Set basketball back to pre-Hickory days of Jimmy Chitwood.

I guess you'll have to suffer for a few more days. I don't feel quite like you do, but I for some reason get tired of Boeheim (sp?) and his sideline antics.


We're all so used to just penciling in Michigan State to the elite 8 after all these years, with them getting beat it just cannibalized a whole lot more brackets. Mine included.
