OU over Gerogetown was a bigger upset, IMO.

9th best team in the MAC beating Georgetown compared to the most overrated #1 overall in a long time losing to a team ranked a large portion of the season? Not even close.

2006 George Mason over both UNC (#10) and UConn (#2) have to be well up near the top. Like Pup said, UNI was ranked most of the year. GMU was #25 in late February, and ranked for the first time ever in the program's history.

UAB over Kentucky in '04 was just as huge as Kansas' loss...

Actually, it was bigger because I lost 2 bills on that one

Okay Buckeye fans, who left in the midwest concerns you the most?

Tennessee: Has never made it out of the Sweet 16...Does Scotty Hopson show up Friday? Will Pat Summit show up without a shirt?

Michigan St: Lucas' out, Izzo's in

Northern Iowa: This year's GM? These ugly goons would be like Motley Crue winning a best band contest

Shitty way for the kid to end his season.



Real bad news for the Spartans but Izzo is like the McGyver of college coaches. If there's bubble gum and kite string around that locker room he'll fashion it into something that will give great effort and fight you tooth and nail.

Lucas is done, Delvin Roe is limping like an 80-year old man...... Get by Tennessee Buckeyes. Take your chances with UNI or a wounded Spartans club.

Not that I'm pulling for 'Cuse, but Butler is laying down a lot of contact on them with no calls. Refs like an upset, too.

Re: the parlay- Why not just bet all 3 individually and hope to hit two and make a tidy profit? Don't get greedy for pie in the sky, you'll hurt your neck... Unless you are on fire right now. Alas, it's probably too late for advice. Did you?

I recall discussing with Pitt fans on another site about how they didn't want to join the Big Ten, because our basketball wasn't near as good as the Big East's.


...

Today was just further proof that, that conference is nothing but smoke and mirrors.

Please don't kill me for wanting to talk Purdue/Duke over the Buckeye game tonight, but how do you guys see the game going?

I'm a bit worried about the matchup problem Singlar creates and the fact that Purdue has struggled to score offensively ever since Hummel has left.

also, I think a ton bares on JaJuan Johnson, when Purdue was facing a 4 game losing streak back in january, he played terribly, and usually when he shows up he has a shot.

that said, I think the final score will probably be...75-65 for Duke to be Kentucky's bitch in the final four.

Gus Johnson's stock is going way up. It's a cultural phenomenon, complete with Rome and Simmons spin support. He's always seemed a little over-excited to me, but I only knew him as a football guy who's coverage was blurred in my orange and brown glasses. I'm liking his college calls- excited, but descriptive enough in real time to add to the game. Savvier than I thought he could be.

I recall a line in "Monday Night Mayhem" when they let Keith Jackson go from MNF and said to him "Keith, you're going to become Mr. College Football"..

In the same sense, Gus Johnson is sort of similiar in title. Does anyone really associate Jim Nantz with college basketball? He deserves the promotion. He had a passion for the sport and would even make a pickup game between friends entertaining.

PROMOTE THE MAN.

This clip is Exhibit A of why Gus Johnson is the single most overrated broadcaster in all of sports right now. The guy is literally screaming incoherently here. Look, I'm watching the goddamned game. I know it's dramatic and exciting, because I have eyes and a brain. I'm not a two-year old, I don't need this guy shrieking at me.

The fact that people actually consider this clown the best in the business is yet another example of how debased standards in our society- in this case, in sports broadcasting- have become. I mean, listen to Ray Scott, Chris Schenkel, Lindsay Nelson, a young Dick Stockton; then listen to Gus Johnson and tell me the guy isn't a complete fucking joke. Seriously.

Love Gus Johnson.

The valid criticism with him is that he tries to force excitement into games where there is little. But a game like yesterday....I thought he was fantastic. What would have improved the telecast as a whole would be the elimination of Len Elmore. That's one dog you could take out behind the barn and shoot. Christ Len, take ten minutes of your week to research the four teams you'll see. And, no, there isn't a need for your only observation is a double overtime game to be "these guys are starting to get tired"

My criticism is that he tries to force excitement into games in which the excitement doesn't need to be forced.

And to be fair, when he's restrained and in control, Gus is capable of being a really, really good broadcaster. I just don't like the histrionics.

Nobody is moving without the ball. I see why Simmons doesn't play. He looks lost on the floor. Bring Hill in to bring the ball up so Turner can get free.

Pretty good half I feel a strong Buckeye 2nd half coming.

Lighty rested and now has all 3 fouls to play with. Madsen and Simmons getting some run allowed a few defensive breakdowns, but Simmons also hit some nice shots. Too bad I have to watch on the laptop as I am stuck with Baylor St. Marry's. If Baylor keeps blowing them out, we should get the feed.

Wow the Bucks have gone cold. Turner needs to get inside the lane and take over.

Brutal. Now I root for Kentucky so I can win $100 in my dad's pool at work.

I heard Turner's banging the women's team's PG. Not sure if it's true, but he might stay for her?

Ah, who am I kidding? Go get your payday, kid.
