I'm convinced there is some kind of dark cloud hanging over the city of Cincinnati that affects their sports teams.

We'll have to see what happens with Xavier later tonight.

What's crazy too, it seems just by the points given up in the last 10 minutes, Cinci's great D crapped the bed- much like Virginia's notorious D the second half of its loss. Lesson learned however. Auburn down 43-19 at the break. I will NOT pencil in Clemson yet. Yogi Berra would be proud.

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?
You know what's interesting... the lower seeded teams get down a bunch and have it within them to come back... UVA, UNC down a bunch - and wilt. What's up with that?

The least boring, for sure.

Now I officially don’t care that UNC beat Duke 2x this year. Enjoy watching us play Cuse Tar Heel fans! I know at least 2-3 of you are around here.

Then again, I'm penciling in Clemson. I knew Auburn was a fraud, like the sleazy Bruce Pearl, but getting more than doubled up by Clemson???
Nevada has the two biggest comebacks of this tournament so far (down 14 against Texas). Also they had a game last year, I think versus New Mexico, where they were down 17 with about 2-1/2 minutes remaining and won.

Clemson up 38 - I think you are safe. 10 min to go.

It would be great if 'Cuse could stun Duke like they did two years ago. I hope 'Cuse makes it to the final four again. They did it as a double-digit seed two years ago; they can do it again.

SC's very unlikely trip to the final four after beating Duke in the 2nd round was pretty great last year too
