Lots of good stuff today, and as much as I despise their NFL coverage, I think CBS always does a great job covering the tournament.
Nice day for the SEC. Like the Big 10, it seems the SEC generally performs better than its teams' rankings say it should in the tournament. Should they meet in the Sweet 16, Florida & anOSU would be very interesting.
How the does a player like Joah Tucker end up on a team like UW-M? I thought he was clearly the best player on the floor in that game.
Hell of a back & forth contest between Tennessee & Winthrop. I'd forgotten this, but my girlfriend remembered Bruce Pearl saying on the Jim Rome show a month or so ago, "Watch out for Winthrop...one team I sure wouldn't want to face in the tournament is Winthrop, etc." and you know he had to be sweatin' that one...in his case literally. (Not since Patrick Ewing have I seen anything quite like that) Crazy shot to win it. Too bad he took about three or four steps without dribbling before jacking it up.
Pacific let me down. Wasted opportunity at the end of regulation, and then up by 6 with 2:30 to go in OT they completely fall apart. BC can be such an enigma. They play basketball like Tressel coaches football, except unlike Tressel that style(?) won't take them very far.
I'm already regretting picking the Zags to advance past UCLA. The disparity in athleticism in that game might be enough to make you question whether or not the Zags' players are in fact moving.
And while it's better to be safe than sorry, somehow I don't think I'd categorize a dog sniffing around a hotdog cart as a "security threat."
