March Madness

34 posts in this topic

This is one of my favorite number non-football times of the year. College hoops have their conference tournaments this weekend which leads into the NCAA Tourney on Tuesday. Time for filling out brackets in company pools and to watch some really good basketball.

Is anyone else down with this, or is it just me?

I'm in on it Billy.  While I'm only moderately following college hoops during the season (see local teams) it picks up for me at the end of the season.
My Xavier muskies haven't had the season they expected, but should still make it to the field of 64.
UC will certainly be there and the Northern Kentucky Norse punched their ticket the other night.

Fun times !!!

I'm happy NKU made it finally. I was a student there briefly before I went into the Marines.

Poor Norsemen. Their first game in the dance is against the Wildcats. They will experience the Bengals effect. Make the show only to be shown the door.

Sadly the Dayton Flyers go one and done in the NCAA Tournament. There are rumors Marvin Lewis was sitting behind their bench for support.

NKU loses by 9.  That's pretty respectable.
UC took care of business against Kansas St. last night as well.
I'll be rooting hard for my Xavier Musketeers today !!!

Northern Kentucky played a solid game against a far superior team. I like them a lot.

Louisville is in a struggle with Michigan and the Kentucky/Wichita State game is coming up. So many good games I actually have to record the Nascar race in Phoenix on the DVR to watch later this evening!

I did the same thing!  Recorded the race so I could watch hoops, among other domestic duties that call.  

Michigan looks pretty hot right now.  Could easily see them winning their region.  

'Nova and now Louisville fall.  Sometimes those super high seeding numbers can be too much for those youngsters to bear.

And Big Blue comes through. On to the sweet 16 for the Wildcats! 

I don't like to be negative towards my Kentucky team, but I don't see a lot of wins from here.

Holy s**t! #11 Xavier knocks off #2 Arizona to go to the Elite Eight. If you guys didn't see this one, you missed a great game!

I missed that one, but saw the Michigan loss.  They had that game and just blew it.
