they didnt deserve to be in the tourney no doubt, but being a Duke alum, Im happy to play them again since when we beat them earlier this season it was a dunkfest.
refs tried hard to keep MSU alive...calling a tie up when a cuse guy is laying on the ball and msu guy has his hands around cuse guy with 6s to go

This was predictable with Michigan State and UNC. I just didn't necessarily think it would be Syracuse and Texas A&M giving them the boot. Look, I credit Syracuse for their runs (two years ago) and less far this year. I see no way they beat Duke next Friday- that would far and away be its biggest accomplishment between the two years. I just hate when I hear these Syracuse fans trying to claim all the naysayers were wrong. What happens after the fact doesn't matter. They didn't belong. They've earned what they accomplished in 2016 and so far this year in the tournament. They could win the national title, still doesn't change anything in terms of what they didn't accomplish (which is a long list vs what they did) in the regular season.

Well my team is out, my bracket is obliterated.....I've lost 3 out of the 4 teams in my beat the spread pool...

The only thing I can hope for now is that anyone but Duke or Kentucky wins it all.

Yeah - when it gets to that point, you need complete chaos to bring everyone else down.

Sort of like UMBC up 5-0 on Kansas.

Or a 30-8 run to wipeout a 22 point 2nd half lead... with one of Cincy's top performers fouled out.

Unbelievable - Nevada wins by 2 after being down by 22 well into the 2nd half.

That should just about shut down the South bracket - unless you have Kentucky.

Tweet from Seth Davis... It's so BS the way the committee gave UMBC the easiest region

What in the hell happened to Cinci? I had already written them in on my sheet to the Sweet 16! Now I have to scribble them out. I didn't tune to the last few hours of action. 22 point lead with 10 minutes left!? Wow- amazing these same programs year after year- like Cinci and Tennessee always choke: doesn't matter the coach, the players, etc... . This is an all-timer I believe. Maybe worse than Northern Iowa being up 12 with about 40 seconds left a few years ago?
