Taking my mandatory 4 day weekend starting today.

Kentucky, Missouri, Florida St., UNC. Tried something different this year- only looked at 2 sites for any research and did not allow myself more than 30 seconds to make a pick. It's set up for the Buckeyes to make a run at the final four but I'll predict their usual flame out in the sweet 16= a WVU/OSU match in Pittsburgh should be a true neutral site/tourney atmosphere.

One of the few pros of working with primarily women- I can get these days off every year!

Wife at work, kids at school, take out for lunch, Rome on in the background, tourney on the tube. Meeting the suckers who had to work today for the second and third batch of games. It's like adult male sports fan's x-mas morning.

Colorado St. up 7-3 early in the first. I just tore up my bracket. ;-) ;) :wink:

Thoroughly enjoying Iowa St. beat the shit out of Calhoun and UCONN. Watching him bitch and moan all over the sidelines is an enjoyable way to spend an evening.

Team with a lot of hype and shit for substance this year.

I think Ohio State's guys enjoy this uptempo game. It's a refreshing change from the slower games in the B10.

Gonzaga looked really good today, albeit against a bad WVU team who is one of the dumbest in CBB. Should be a decent test for Ohio State. It'd be nice for them to get tested early in the tournament so they don't piss down their leg when they're in a dogfight later.

Love DTV. Will never switch away.

Wish I could get to Willoughby, sounds like a blast.

Sullinger needs to stop bringing the ball down after he rebounds it. Keep it neck level or higher. Get it right back up.

Thomas may be tOSU's best/most consistent scorer.

Loyola's entire team is going to foul out by half time.

Gonzaga looked good. WIll be a tough game.

Sullinger is overrated. That's OK, it distracts people from other players.

That's it for my random thoughts today.

AT&T has its issues, mostly the price, but it's not too bad. Had it for a couple of years now. Plenty of DVR storage, each box can pause, rewind, etc. Plenty of on-demand options. No major complaints.

Help me out on Twitter with some scores and updates over the weekend, guys...those of you who can. I'm driving all day Sat and Sun, and can't watch anything after Friday night. Thanks in advance. This is my first good Internet connection in about a week, and I've got cable at the RV park we're at, so I get to see the Bucks tonight, but then I go off the grid again for four days...drive and sleep.

The Buckeyes might have a lottery pick after all. DT

These games have been terrible thus far. No upsets (VCU doesn't count), no buzzer beaters, no overtime games.

I have no logical reason behind it, but I can't stand VCU.

lets hope these games go better. Because, this isn't March Madness.

Too bad that they looked great down the line and were a trendy Final 4 pick. Guess the perfect bracket challenge lives on for another year.

Early March Madness thoughts:

1) If Melo's suspension was issued by Syracuse and not the NCAA, do you think its an accident that it wasn't until after the tourney draw, as to not jeopardize their #1 seeding?

2) With 3 or 4 games on at a time, my remote is smoking. I need picture in a picture in a picture in a picture. And when can I hit the john??? My bladder is being stretched to its limits!

3) Was pulling for VCU again. Tough way to lose. Led most of the way.

4) There are times when the Buckeyes try to force feed the ball to Sullinger TOO much. Especially when he's struggling. They work so hard to get him into the flow of the game, that they often disrupt the whole team's rhythm.

5) Loved OUs beating of scUM.

6) Syracuse was handed their game vs NC Asheville. What I hated most was Boheim's comment afterwards. "Luck had nothing to do with it, the better team won." Way to have a little humility when your team gets handed a game by the refs. How about a little props to the opponent.

7) Contrast that response to Duke's Coach K's response when his team got upset. He handed all the props to Lehigh.

8) What a freaking insane run by UK over Iowa State. Tied at 42 and then UK goes on a 20-2 run. Sharks smelling blood.

9) Big 10 doing well. A big change from football. Hope they keep it up. Although the Michigan loss was still wonderful.

10) Speaking of OU, how about them having a 12-13 match-up with USF after USF upset Temple.

11) Marquette v Murray State game turned into a playground game many times. Pace was chaotic.

11 - This just in. The Society of Jesus has how many small expensive colleges that pump out disproportionately great basketball teams. Undefeated in round one.

Eyo can now head down to the arena next weekend and watch his favorite future NBA player. Be nice for the Big10 to get 5 into the sweet 16 but Purdue has it's work cut out for it. MSU with a smallish 7 point lead as I type this, but watching the flow, they'd have to fall apart right here to lose this.

Word up. Walsh started recruiting me at the tender age of 12 before I knew what football was. Those dudes WORK.

Did they stop as your personality came more clearly into focus?

Shhhhh. Catholic high schools don't recruit. Each prospective student makes their choice based solely on academia, completely free from any real or perceived pressure from anyone associated with the school's athletic department. ;-) ;) :wink:

After a quick google search, I am sad to report we forgot about Loyola MD and Detroit the only two 15 seeds to lose. St. Iggy is rolling in his grave- may they be sentenced to random masses taking up half of a school day, saying the Our Father before every practice and a dress code that would make the NFL look lax.
