March Madness 2012

And so it begins... and it begins with Mississippi Valley State doing their best impersonation of the 2007 Mets.

Ok, forgive my ignorance, but I really haven't followed College basketball much at all until a couple of years ago, and not very closely at that, but what's going on with these games today? And the others like them?

They're essentially play-in games to get into the main 64-team tournament. I refuse to call Thursday-Friday the second round and Saturday-Sunday the third round.

So they never did expand it to 96 teams (yeah, I'm just that bad)?

Here's my predicted Elite Eight:

Kentucky
Duke
Michigan St.
Florida
Vanderbilt
Ohio St.
North Carolina
Kansas

And I have Kentucky, Michigan St., Ohio St., and Kansas moving on to the Final Four and Kentucky winning it all.

Hello!

I haven't filled mine out yet, but I will be taking Iona to the sweet 16.

Regional Finals:
Kentucky over Duke
Missouri over Michigan State
Ohio State over Syracuse
North Carolina over Georgetown

Final Four:
Missouri over Kentucky
North Carolina over Ohio State

Final:
North Carolina over Missouri


No big upsets in my bracket. Vanderbilt and Cincinnati are the only non-top4 seeds in my Sweet 16.

And this is why I'm waiting until after the play in games to fill out my brackets.

What an unbelievable choke job by one damn good coach in Tim Cluess. When you completely dominate the pace of the game, and its clear to everyone with eyeballs that BYU can't keep up with your pace... why on earth would you stay in a passive zone for the entire second half, even as the other team is clearly on a run and getting hotter by the second? I wanted to throw my remote through the TV.

Wow. I only just saw that BYU came back to win. That's fucking nuts. Iona don't feel too good right now.

Meanwhile, tomorrow is going to be a blast. Just like every year.
