    I’ve made an executive decision to condense the single day tourney threads to an overall tourney thread.

    Wichy State vs Kentucky is must watch basketball. I’m predicting a barn burner.

    Nope, you are correct, they seem to have an easy path every year. Duke deserved that #1 seed more than the Holes in my opinion if you look at their respective resumes. It is what it is I guess.

    Uncle Roy won’t ever learn to call the TO when the other Team erases a 17 point lead…

    HOLES looking at their bench, not getting any help…

    Couldn’t happen to nicer guys…

    POP!!!

    Duke lost three of four games before the tournament. Carolina won the league over several months. No way Duke deserves a number one seed for getting hot for three days. Especially considering they won two of those tournament games when A key Louisville and a key Carolina player got in foul trouble and made life easier for Duke.

    HOGS show what they learned from all them big games they play down in Football country…

    Scoreless the last 3 minutes…

    HOLES win on the floor…
    not from the Bench.

    I did like that hard full court press from Uncle Roy with a 4pt lead and 10 seconds left…
    although it was pointless.. still it was cute…

    Butler (#4 Seed) showcasing Wee Tiny Tyler of EX-NCSU Fame. Boy’s name has been uttered MORE that Gottfried. Someone else posted this…so it is NOT my work. Followed Mr. 538 in the election. He is a “Probability” statistician that writes complex formulas and algorithms that “Predict” the outcome based on “survey”. He had a site that got a LOT of hype (due to its accuracy drying PAST elections….and he was a WhizKid Pollster for the WJC folks and went “public” for the big bucks.

    https://projects.fivethirtyeight.com/2017-march-madness-predictions/?addata=espn:frontpage

    He was always (in the home stretch) “HRC by Landslide”. Somewhere around 7:30 PM (EDST), his numbers shifted a little. Then around 9:30, he “called it” and the Soon-to-be-loosing party went ballistic and in self denial (HMMMM….I think that I have seen that reaction sometime quite recently). He then walked around Time Square tweeting what was happening and “marveling” at what was happening and what his “infallible” model was predicting. He was also a quoted source on so many programs and cable “news….(real and/or fake) outlets…”

    SO, I have NO idea as to his correlation based on past NCAA runs. It WOULD appear that his “services” are not in high demand and he has had to “make a midlife career change” and is doing sports. It IS a pretty good interactive site and you can “observe” the odds and compare them with our own gut feel or vast Statistical Analysis. I would say….”He Ain’t no SAS”.

    It will be interesting to see UNC vs. Butler and the WTTL. ORW probably DOES remember him…

    I am sorry. That’s totally absurd that a 2 seed plays in South Carolina vs. South Carolina (the 7 seed)…And to make matters worse, the heels played their earlier. It’s disgusting – and on an IOC / World Cup Soccer corruption level.

    I mean this is absurd….On a criminal level. Some type of investigation should take place. Seriously. Was this incompetence or intentional.

    Duke is dead. The ACC with all their invites, down to one, the chronic cheaters.

    Can we pay Martin 4 mil and be done with it? We didn’t hire a coach yet…did we? Did we? We did?

    Frank Martin is very impressive. That guy won’t be in SC much longer.

    ACC with one team in the Sweet 16. What was that Gott was crying about, the unbelievably difficult, veteran ACC? Thank goodness we pulled the plug on MG.
