NCAA Tourney
Who's your pick? This is my favorite time of year for sports. Can't wait till tonight. Really think it's anyone's year this year. FSU surely impressed in the ACC tourney, but can they beat UNC again? It's hard to pick against UK but it almost seems like that's why they will lose.

kstateskier 03-13-2012 4:34 PM

Ian, I just got a little more excited when I heard the Melo was out of the tournament for Syracuse. If K-State can play like they did against Mizzou both times, no reason for them not to get to the Elite 8 at this point. We need our big men to step up!

I've got KU/Michigan State in the final with the Sparty's taking the title. Fiance is a huge fan of MSU, so that might be part of that and the fact I despise KU ;)

wakereviews 03-14-2012 11:02 AM

Yeah, i had to re-do a few of my brackets to put KSU past them after I heard that. Can't believe you put KU in the final... Mind. Blown.

kstateskier 03-14-2012 9:21 PM

Mizzou has passed KU on my hate list. I now know why you guys hate them so much. Have Florida beating them. Hatred may have clouded my judgement.

wakereviews 03-15-2012 7:36 AM

At least we can agree on that then.... can't believe we are the only ones in WW who are into the NCAA tourney. only 2.5 hours until tip off and I'm psyched!!!

wakereviews 03-15-2012 2:30 PM

thank god for MacGruber.

ttrigo 03-15-2012 3:00 PM

I have Duke beating Wisconsin in the championship game. did not have a chance to adjust my bracket after Melo was declared inelgible. would have taken KSU over them otherwise.

wake77 03-15-2012 3:49 PM

Syracuse just got their wake-up call. They will beat KState by double digits.

kstateskier 03-15-2012 9:52 PM

Wake up call? They were lucky the refs gave them that game. If they bring that effort on Saturday K-State will thump them by 15. Would be surprised if K-States length gets them like they did Mizzou, especially of McGruder is on from outside. But being a K-State fan, I also wouldn't be surprised if we lost by 15. Gotta love the tournament. Big 12 3-0 through the first day.

wakereviews 03-16-2012 7:16 AM

yeah, i totally disagree with Jeremy there. Refs blew that one. I think KSU has a good shot at taking down Cuse.

ttrigo 03-16-2012 6:27 PM

ouch. had Mizzou losing to Duke in the final 4. wont find anyone who saw that one coming. ouch.

kstateskier 03-16-2012 7:01 PM

I had Mizzou losing to Florida Sunday, but have to admit that most of that was driven by my hatred for them. Mizzou didn't have the length to get deep in the tournament and anyone that says they did doesn't know much about basketball. This was the reason K-State manhandled them twice.

03-16-2012 7:27 PM

Holy crap Duke going down!!

And I could care less now if my Buckeyes dont win many more...just glad the OU Bobcats knocked off that stupid state north of Ohio and their best team since the "fab five"!!

Ur bracket done for now?? Better start drinking the hard stuff tonight lol

ttrigo 03-16-2012 8:08 PM

pretty much done now. that one hurt me a lot more than Mizzou losing, obviously. already had my gin poured before the horn sounded.

wakereviews 03-17-2012 7:29 AM

Mizzou and duke going down in round 1, seriously could this tourney have started out any better?

wake77 03-17-2012 12:30 PM

"yeah, i totally disagree with Jeremy there. Refs blew that one. I think KSU has a good shot at taking down Cuse."

You two can eat crow and suck a toe.....Wildcats were declawed by the Cuse.

wakereviews 03-18-2012 6:01 PM

For the record I said they had a shot..... However I will eat my crow

kstateskier 03-18-2012 8:01 PM

I said I wouldn't be surprised if we lost by 15. Why am I eating crow? I made that comment when I thought we would have our second leading scorer. It's crazy the different way schools operate. Pretty sure $200 would have gotten swept under the rug up in Syracuse. Not a lot of moral fiber around that place.

wakereviews 03-21-2012 8:24 AM

So, is UK unbeatable? I'm thinking UNC blows away Ohio. Pretty worried about KU vs NC State, they are hot.

polarbill 03-22-2012 9:36 AM

Sorry for missing the start of this thread. I went down to Vegas for the first round. I really have no idea what is going on in the tourney other then Kentucky is good and North Carolina is good but oen of their guys broke his hand or wrist. In my bracket I have Kentucky beating UNC, yeah I know went out on a limb there. I have Ohio State and Louisville(led by another stud, undersized PG from the Seattle area) in the final four.

Oh yeah, the PAC12 sucks at basketball. UW is going to win the NIT though. Yeah.

phatboypimp 03-22-2012 10:52 AM

Why oh Why do I pick Kansas to win it all each year. Don't hate too much on the Pac-12 - UW could pull off the NIT and WSU has a shot at the CBI as they made the finals last night.

CBI finals is the best of 3. Never seen that before.

jhartt3 03-22-2012 11:05 AM

ROCK CHALK all the way !!!!

wakereviews 03-22-2012 11:35 AM

phatboypimp, i pick KU all the time too, but this year I refrained and dind't pick them to win in any bracket. I just don't see it. I do think UNC is going to pound Ohio though.

kstateskier 03-23-2012 11:29 PM

Ohio looked pretty tough. KU tried to give it up in the end. Should be interesting game Sunday.

wakereviews 03-24-2012 8:20 AM

KU has played like donkey D*** all tourney. I think we shot like 1 - 13 from three???? Gave up a ton of boards (but we did get a nice amount of offensive ones too).

CAn't believe UNC didn't clobber Ohio. That was a shocker. It's anyone's game Sunday... can't wait!!! RCJH!!

dav51lin 03-24-2012 3:26 PM

i have been watching the ncaa hockey tournament i like it alot more than basketball by far more intense non stop action.

nu2dagam 03-25-2012 8:38 AM

Ian, whaaaaaaaat up?? 5:50 tip I think. How much
Did y'all pay the Cretin dirty birds to injure the
The most indispensable player in the NCAA? : )
I'm praying for a win and a Marshall return in
NO. Dont stop this train please: )

wakereviews 03-25-2012 9:35 AM

Bill self vs. Roy Williams round two.can't wait!

polarbill 03-25-2012 1:15 PM

I am killing my bracket. I have Louisville, tOSU, Tucky and UNC. I already have half the final four and looks like I am going to get the 3rd in Tucky. They are pounding Baylor. I am not very confident in UNC without Marshall but KU hasn't exactly been setting the world on fire in their games so far.

wakereviews 03-25-2012 5:14 PM

Rock chAlk jayhawk KU!!

polarbill 03-26-2012 11:02 AM

Damn broken wrist kept me from a perfect finar 4. Good win by the Jayhawks though. They looked good.

wakereviews 03-26-2012 2:04 PM

Paging Jonathan..... :) OSU is the early favorite at -2.5 over KU. Obviously I"m pretty biased but i'm not buying that at all.

phatboypimp 03-27-2012 12:05 PM

UK and Ohio are the teams to beat now.....how does your bracket look?

wakereviews 04-01-2012 1:21 PM

Rock chalk! Can Self take down Calipari again? Hope so

jhartt3 04-01-2012 2:22 PM

Lets GO Rock Chalk!!! That would be something if he took down Calipari again!
