Watching WVU-UK

They're not even 15 minutes in, and UK is up by 22.

They should've made the Wildcats play in street clothes to keep it in the teens.

I think WVU's 'strategy' was concocted by their starting five: "If we foul out in the first half, we won't be on the court to get our asses kicked by 45 in the second half"

this ought to count for 2, at least.

WVU has scored 1 point in the second half in over 6 minutes.  And committed 7 fouls.

The local sports guy on the radio was talking to a handicapper about this game.  The line was 13 1/2.  The handicapper, Brandon Lang (from the movie Two for the Money (with Pacino, McConaughey and Rene Russo)), liked West Virginia to keep it close.  Mostly due to Huggin's 8 & 2 record against Cal.  The sports guy said, "I'll give the 13 and a 1/2 with the 'A' squad and then with the 'B' squad.  Kentucky will be up by 30 in the second half"

Right now, WVU could go on a 31-0 run and still be losing.

It's all going to come down to the non-Kentucky games at this point

I'm (very briefly) in the top 20% nationally!!!!  But this will all come crashing down since I can only have 2 picks right in the Final 4 (Wisconsin & Kentucky).  Hope Gonzaga beats Dook regardless of where that places me overall.

Both UNC & NCSU played well in their final games.

I was hoping Gonzaga would help me out and get rid of the Dookies for me, now, I have to rely on Izzo.

3 out of 4 #1's made it to the Final 4. It's been a while since that happened.
If it looks like chicken, tastes like chicken, and feels like chicken but Chuck Norris says its beef, then it's beef.

So when Xavier played Arizona on Thursday night, most of America got their first taste of Matt Stainbrook. Itís fair to say they liked what they saw. The combination of the game tipping at 10:30 p.m. ET, Stainbrook operating at peak Stainbrook, and TBS accidentally forgetting to mute Reggie Millerís mic led to millions of viewers thinking, Am I hallucinating, or is an Uber driver with goggles and a patchy beard who canít jump over a phone book tearing up one of the best frontcourts in college basketball?

If Wisconsin held an auction in which the highest bidder got to ride mopeds, play FIFA, eat cheese curds, drink Spotted Cows, and do whatever else happens when you hang with the Buzzcuts for a week, Iíd bid somewhere in the neighborhood of $7 billion.

We take Notre Dameís mascot for granted.

Every single year for the last half-century, Notre Dame has found at least one student who is short, has red hair, can grow a beard, is smart enough to get into Notre Dame, and who is willing to appear on national television dressed up like a cartoon character from a cereal box. Thatís amazing.
