Sorry James, MSU out in the first round. I picked them for you in my bracket though. I went with them over the Southern California boys. I hate fucla. Damn Spartans! I picked Tennessee over Michigan tomorrow in my bracket.

Man was I wrong about Michigan today James. Michigan is kicking Tennessee by 30 points with a minute left. Bye, bye Bruce Pearl.

It was a thing of beauty, nervous about Duke though especially after that Fab 5 documentary. First team in NCAA history not to make a free throw 0 for 1.
It would have been nice to see Oakland beat Texas, that Benson kid is a joy to watch.

Michigan didn't make a free-throw with all the points they scored? If so, WOW! Yeah, you guys will lose to Duke, sorry. I was hoping Oakland would beat Texas too. Oakland played well.

Disappointing finish but an overall success of a yr, it's been great to see UofM basketball back in relevancy.Honestly we over achieved a bit this yr. Next year is looking like a strong as have dont have a single sr. and a couple of real nice recruits on the way. Big Ten should be strong as well

Would have preferred your UofM team (James) winning, but now my Arizona Wildcats will take a shot at Duke. The Honda Center is 10 miles from my house and really wanted to go, but hard to justify $300 for the nose bleed section (those tix are gone as of this morning, the cheapest seat is $425 on stubhub) when I can't even get there until the end of the 4:15 pm SDSU-UConn game. Pulling for Tom's team to win, and stay to cheer us on (which will happen for sure w/an Aztec victory). Regional Final tix start at half the price (they can't charge for the doubleheader) and an all-west final of UofA-SDSU will see the price sky-rocket, but there will be plenty of seats if one or both of those fail to advance.

SoCal I am suddenly a Wildcat fan since they are playing Duke.  Also hope SDSU and BYU have good results on Thursday.

SoCalJoe, I am cheering for your Wildcats. Would love to see a SDSU/AofA regional final. Let me know if you are going and we can meet up.

Tom, not going on Thurs., you driving up? I like your teams' chances and even though they didn't play their best in Tucson, I think they'll actually relax and raise their game v UConn. Arizona has exceeded expectations (our next recruiting class is rated highly) and all Cats' fans agree we hired the right coach to get us back to where Lute had the program for decades, but not overly optimistic about beating Duke (won't rule it out however). The tix for the Regional Final are on sale at stubhub starting at $180 and plan on going if UofA advances. If both teams make it, a pregame beer in Anaheim might be the call since I'm pretty sure beer will NOT be sold at the arena (NCAA rules).

Congrats to all of you who still have teams playing.  I was pretty bummed by A&M's opening performance until I saw what FSU did to Notre Dame.  The Jayhawks would seem to have the easiest path to the Final Four now, but with the defense FSU is playing, the Noles may pull the upset.  Hopefully for SDSU, another week off will help cool UConn.

Getting ready to leave to go catch the Amtrak Aztec party train and head up to Anaheim. I hope Arizona knocks off the Dukies. Go Aztecs!!!

These two games right now have been great, having a tough time picking a game. Jimmer is one of the best shooters i have ever seen

It was a great game James! Sucks we lost but we had a great season that I will never forget. We hurt ourselves by not hitting our free-throws.  :tom:  And those two T's they called on us were total bullsh!t! Kemba is a f#cking flopper. I thought I was watching a soccer game.  :tom:  We had the lead and momentum when both of them were called and that changed everything. Great season Aztecs! I am proud of you!  :wine:
