If that guy can chuck a basketball 94 feet and nail the backboard on demand, I think the Detroit Lions have a job for him.

I'm on the East Coast and they broke into the game just after the national news. And now Belmont is getting blown out.

I think you have nailed at least one of the Lions' issues: they are playing with basketballs!

well the lions do seem to be stockipling mediocre quarterbacks these days... i guess they're gonna get one mediocre QB for every mediocre wideout they've drafted over the past 5 years.

gonzaga's point guard looks like he's about 14 years old.

What a crazy bracket day... I only missed two games in my #1 bracket, but of those two games I missed (Nevada and San Diego State), I had both teams in the Sweet Sixteen.

Oh well. Washington took down Utah State so I am 100% satisfied.

I went 11-5 today, but ended up losing two of my Elite Eight teams (Syracuse and Oklahoma)...

A fairly solid 13-3 day. I guess I can go ahead and chalk it up as 13-4 since I had Cuse making it to the Sweet 16.

well after the first day, those who picked uconn, villanova, west virginia, pittsburgh or georgetown to do things in this tournament might start to become a little nervous after watching the big east go 0-3 on day 1. and not only did all three teams, including the tourney champs, lose, they lost fairly easily... seton hall getting run off the court, marquette getting blown out early before making a late run to get it closer, and syracuse trailed the whole way against a&m.

so there are only a few explanations i can think of to explain this...
a) it's a fluke
b) the big east schedule & tournament is so tough that teams are just worn out by now
c) despite having 258 teams, the big east simply is a tad over-rated.

a stellar 10-6 on day one, two sweet 16 teams gone, all regional finalists and final four teams still alive... knock on wood.

only pool i'm in for money requires you to pick only the final four teams, the winner, and the total points of the championship game...

Quote:
Now some people, like the folks at a bar in Staten Island, N.Y., take this to great heights. What began as a simple $10 pool has escalated over the years, until last year thousands of people wagered enough money that the pot was more than $1 million. If you think everyone in that bracket pool had a rooting interest in anything but their bank account you're kidding yourself.

... yup, that's the one... so i'm good to go.

I always defended him when I was growing up as a Michigan fan, but he really is an awful in-game coach.

Northwestern St. just got wanged -- clear foul on an Iowa player (wrapping his arm around the defender) gets called against them at the end of the game.
