Ad Nauseam - I like college and I hate pro.
Bwahahahahaha! Nice game, Kobe!

Every time I look at UCLA's Lorenzo Mata I think to myself...
I need some NOSE candy, yo!
You know Texas A&M is screaming CONTROVERSY! But it wasn't...
All the games went according to plan.
Did you see that Oden reject to end the game?!?!?!
Pics and vid coming soon...

Waiting for tomorrow just like everyone else.
Am I the only one in the world who thinks Greg Oden will NOT turn pro this year!?
Unless they win the National Championship.
In the meantime, your moment of Zen...
Will Butler "fuck" her team's hopes?

I would love to redo that Second Coming Nike commercial and replace all those NBA players with some of my fav college players. That would be an awesome video!
They say the family that plays together, stays together...
Josh McRoberts (and his mom can be there too...)

This will be updated throughout the day...
1:07 pm - At home, heading out to the bar soon. WHAT WAS I THINKING PICKING STANFORD TO WIN AGAINST THE CARDINALS?!?!? Why didn't anyone say anything?!?!
Currently watching Washington State vs. OSU... Oh yeah, also watching G'Town vs. Belmont on the computer. I LOVE YOU CBS SPORTSLINE VIP ACCESS!
Oral Roberts has a player named Ken Tutt!!!!!
2:18 PM - Yeah, there is a small part of me who would like an Ivy League school to make it to the 2nd round of March Madness. But damn, not against Acie Law!!!!
Fuck Mark Wahlberg, I'm the real shooter!!!
2:31 pm - You've got to be shitting me! The Price Is Right is now on CBS regular TV... George Washington is playing Vanderbilt! Once again, thank you CBS Sportline online access...
Fuck you, Bob Barker...
3:41 pm - I have never seen such a woodshed ass kicking March Madness game such as George Washington vs. Vanderbilt. 30 points?
4:18 pm - O-M-G I was dying that hour of no basketball... We are back with Duke vs. VCU...
4:39 pm - Ok, that would be fucking funny if Weber State won...
6:31 pm - Duke vs. VCU has become the game to watch. VCU 74 and Duke is 72...
Dear Lord this is close!!!! VCU 79, Duke 77 with 1.8 seconds left!
Duke is OUT!!!!!!!!!!!! Yeah it messes with my bracket a bit but what a game!!!!
MARCH ------ MADNESS
Say no more.
8:09 pm - Xavier vs. BYU is a battle! Tune in now. Go BYU (conference root)!!!!!!

I think there is a lot of hatred for Duke and that hatred is blinding people into saying VCU will beat them.
The stats seem to say Virginia Commonwealth is a better team:
Duke Team Averages - 32 (GMS), 70.2 (PTS), 35.1 (REB), 13.2 (AST), 15.4 (TO), 1/1.2 (A/T), 7.4 (STL), 4.7 (BLK), 17.4 (PF), .469 (FG%), .692 (FT%), .383 (3P%), 1.32 (PPS)
VCU Team Averages - 33 (GMS), 74.8 (PTS), 33.3 (REB), 13.6 (AST), 11.4 (TO), 1.2/1 (A/T), 7.5 (STL), 3.1 (BLK), 18.0 (PF), .460 (FG%), .725 (FT%), .400 (3P%), 1.34 (PPS)
However I think Duke has an intangible being battle tested in March.
That will get them past the first round.
I'm not saying they will go far. Just saying that they will be able to squeak by VCU.
Let the hate mail begin.

And probably won't until Thursday.
Lots of people predicting a first round loss by Duke from VCU. I use to do incramental bets against Duke during March Madness.
Round One: I would bet $20 moneyline for Duke to lose
Round Two: I would bet $40 same thing
Never had to go past that and would make a little coin.
Tennessee vs. Long Beach State as a game to watch?! Hardly.
North Carolina predicted by some to win it all. Not me.
Ok, so I'm rooting a little for UNLV (and BYU - conference root) but WHAT is the purpose of this Running Rebels promo ad for the tournament?
Hey, we might get bounced out in the first round, but look at us!

EDITOR'S NOTE: We noticed a lot of page hits for this post and should mention that the bracket below is for THIS year (2008). It looks like CBS deleted our 2007 bracket. We recommend people go here instead.
My bracket picks for the NCAA Division I Basketball Tournament starting March 15th -
The right side is cut off a little bit, but you can still see my picks. Don't laugh or I'll eat your lunch...
Living here in LA, there is the usual talk of USC and UCLA getting in. But there is also talk of Long Beach State getting in. Go 49ers.
Tennessee is gonna crunch them! Example of this below...

Real time reactions to the Selection Committee.
3 pm - Let's begin...
Nothing surprising about the #1 seeds (Ohio State, Florida, Kansas and UNC)...
Ok, that was a funny Sprint whatever commercial when they steal the guy's phone and then give it back.
I so predict Arizona getting beat by Purdue. Arizona is WEAK!
Go UNLV!!!!! Hey, if your school is not in the tournament, root for the conference! GA Tech, huh? UNLV will have their hands full with the Yellow Jackets.
Notre Dame vs. Winthrop... That is gonna be a vicious game!
VA Tech is a #5 seed?!?!?!!? Ok, color me shocked. I had them as an 8th or 9th seed. Wow, Illinois is a #12 seed?!? I had them the same way (8 or 9)! I think Illinois will beat VA Tech.
Go Joyce!!! She's an alumni of Indiana (and co-worker/basketball lover). Hoosiers are in as a #7 seed vs. Gonzaga. I would be a little worried, Joyce.
Duke as a #6 seed and Illinois is #12!?!?! Can you say Dookie bias on the committee? At least they will get past the first round (they play VCU).
They have rewarded Arkansas for some strange reason with a #12 seed playing USC.
Ok, I have GOT to see Golden "fellatio" Eagles of Oral Roberts vs. Washington State. That seems like a good game. Hey, Seth Davis agrees with me.
One more region and I'm hoping for some Cougar action.
Go BYU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Conference root. Playing Xavier though.... Ouch.
Oh c'mon! Tennessee is playing Long Beach State?! Why don't don't just give the Volunteers a bye?
That's it! I will do my bracket and post it on Monday or Tuesday.
Side note: It looks like Kansas State's begging didn't work.
Good job, Committee. Go home to your wives now.

After the debacle by Air Force from that giant killer Wyoming, all SDSU had to do was win ONE game to give their chances for getting into March Madness an extra boost.
Colorado St. 69, San Diego St. 64
In other news...
It took overtime for USC to beat Stanford. Surprising.
Washington State shows once again why they are the most frustrating team going to the Madness.
2 more days until Selection Sunday!!!!!!
Might as well JUMP!

From now until Monday, March 12 will probably be a lot of quick posts on this blog.
I'll have a complete post after Selection Sunday along with my personal bracket (warning - I would NOT use it for betting purposes unless you have money to burn).
Looking forward to the action in the MWC Tournament starting today.
Syracuse is in! And out fast I reckon.

God I LOVE March Madness!!!!!!
I think the soundtrack right now to what's going on is Nine Inch Nails - The Only Way Out Is Through.
You and me, we're in this together now!!!!!!!

Last night's game between Oakland and ORU was a nail biter. But Oral is in the Madness!
How the Mountain West Conference can get four bids:
Assumption - UNLV (ranked #25) and BYU (ranked #23) are a lock to get into the Dance even if they crash and burn in the opening rounds of the MWC tournament.
Air Force would have to make it to the semi-finals of the tournament because of their recent slide. The committee would look very favorably on that.
SDSU would have to win the tournament OUTRIGHT to get the auto bid the selection people give out.
And now, your moment of Zen...

George Mason is out.
The Zags are in. I predict a quick exit though.
And please stop with the Fire Tubby Smith stuff! He's only won over 365 games and has a 77% win ratio and has won the NCAA Tournament AND has won the SEC 5 times!!! But what have you done for me lately?!
I'm not a Tubby cheerleader and he is on the hot seat. But geez!
What. The. Fuck.
The new March Madness uniforms...
Tonight it's Oral Roberts vs. Oakland. I like rooting for Oral because I like that school's name.
"What school do you go to?"
Wow, that's a surprising amount of Black women at Oral Roberts (from CSTV.com)...
Ok, are you ready for this? 5 more days until Selection Sunday. 9 more days until the beginning rounds of March Madness. My eyes are wellin'.

First, get this...
This will allow you to see the games online. Great for work!
I came so close to jamming to Vegas for the MWC Tournament this weekend. The only thing that stopped me was the date. I could go from March 11th to 12th. The tournament is from March 8th to 10th.
I know, I wasn't thinking. The tournament would HAVE to be over by the 11th for Selection Sunday.
Next, spinning off of yesterday's post I have found that VICIOUS dunk to end the first half of Nova vs. Syracuse.
DAMN!!!! Talk about posterized...
Oh dear Lord Cowboys, beaten by Baylor. Yer fucked now!
Lucky the ones who were able to watch the overtime thriller of WSU vs. USC.
Tyler Hansbrough injury during the Duke/UNC game does nothing but stoke the fire even more with this bordering on silly rivalry.
I can't show the bloody picture, I just can't...
I am starting to dislike Joakim Noah of Florida more and more each day. He is so ready for the NBA...
"Why's he talking trash?" Joakim Noah asked of (UK player) Ramel Bradley afterward. "I'm his daddy! That's my son! Why's he talking to me like that? I shouldn't have been upset? When your son starts talking bad about you that's not right. You can't do that. So I overreacted. The cops had to stop me. The ref told the grandpa, coach Donovan, to get me out of the game. But Ramel's really my son. He's my guy, though. I've got mad love for him. He's just talking trash."

Great game last night (WSU vs. UCLA). Defensive struggle until the last 5 minutes when the Bruins started gaining ground. A lot of Cougars players got hurt unfortunately, but that shows how much of an old skool smash mouth game it was.
Not really much to say today. Maybe I have a case of the Fridays.
In the meantime, THIS IS A GOOD LINK (below)! Ganked from NCAA Hoops Today, Warren Nolan shows you the nitty gritty of all the teams:

Maryland beats Duke 85 to 77!?! I know people were expecting it, but I wasn't!
Do you know who the hell I am?! Make the calls that will benefit US!!!!
UCLA at Washington State tonight is gonna be a BATTLE! That's the game I'm watching.
This from NCAA Hoops Today:
Idea for ESPN: Put Dick Vitale and Mike Patrick in the Cameron Crazies section, take away their microphones, dress them up in Dookie gear, during timeouts show them dancing with the Crazies, and and let Doris do the game. She is clearly the only one paying attention to the game and the only one who really analyzes the game. Validation point: Doris figured out how to properly pronounce Vasquez's name while Vitale and Patrick did not.
DING DING DING DING DING!!!!
How painful is this picture?!
New Mexico's McKay walking to the locker room after his team lost his last game as head coach (he was fired a couple of weeks ago).
And finally, I leave you with Texas' double overtime win against Texas A&M.
Gives me goosebumps and I'm not even from Texas! C'mon March 15th!!!!
