Well that was fun...
Our only regret this season was not buying tickets from one of the many ticket brokers out there to go to an actual game. But such is life and more on that later. Now we start the time of year where there is no college basketball to occupy us. There isn't even so much as college football to bide our time. We call this banishment. Others have another term for it.
During this time of year we here at M2M switch into our off season posting rules. We are making some changes though from last year's rules:
2) Wednesday's Moment of Zen
3) Off topic? Yes citizens, we will be doing a lot of off topic posts. Cooking and politics still gives us grist for the mill.
The look back / ahead
Although we didn't get tickets to any of the games we had our correspondents. Plus we organized our annual blogosphere famous trips to Vegas, this time for Selection Sunday. While that was beyond fun we really need to get our asses to actual games. Either we need to grab ourselves regular season tickets to ncaa basketball games or at the very least tickets for March Madness. Seriously, this is our goal for the 2010-2011 season. Blog brethren like Rush The Court is leaving us in the dust in this area.
So there you have it. Stay warm, keep hydrated and we will be back in force come October.

Funny moment - While we were watching the NFL Draft we noticed when Alabama linebacker Rolando McClain was picked he was totally surrounded by a lot of screaming White women. While there's nothing wrong with that (we guess) it made us say "Damn" out loud. Mrs. March To Madness was in the kitchen and we know she heard us but maybe not have known why we said that. Well, it looks like someone from the Twitter world noticed that too. Introducing Kentrell Lockett:

1) Toby Gerhart got penalized for being a White running back
2) Erin Andrews is essentially hanging out with Jimmy Clausen
3) Can't believe Colt McCoy has fallen this low
4) A lot of kids are crying when they are getting picked. Must be the money!
5) First you had wine in a box, now you have BEER in a box. Thanks, Coors Light
6) We think NY Jets fans would boo even if their team's selection was Jesus of Nazareth, South Galilee University
7) The Tebow Child goes to the Broncos. Good luck with that, guys. Mel Kiper is pissed
8) These pro football analysts don't know a single thing about college football. All night we kept on thinking to ourselves "What?!"

Duke is your national champs. Butler put up a good fight, but everyone knew the Blue Devils had too much horsepower.
So ok, we are now officially at the start of the off-season. We are going to take a little vacation from the blogosphere and then we will be back with our off-season rules. Don't mess with our 8-track while we are out.
P.S. We tied for second in the blogger March Madness bracket picks. Rock on.

Have we said how much we love the NCAA in their infinite wisdom?
We don't really. They treat these kids like indentured servants, come up with the most asinine rules (our fav was when they penalized a school because one of their basketball players went back home to whatever foreign country they were from to compete in the Olympics on that player's national team. Why would the NCAA penalize the school for that? Because the player got a small stipend from the country's government.), we can go on and on. Looks like this idea of expanding the NCAA Tournament from 65 teams to 96 teams with the first 32 teams getting a bye is going to come true. Never in our wildest nightmares could we imagine the NCAA fucking something up so badly.
There can only be ONE reason for this. Hit it, Diddy.

Believe it or not we are watching the women's Final Four Oklahoma / Stanford (with bottles of wine and other assorted booze). And we are actively engaged in it making comments to each other.
And it doesn't hurt that Oklahoma coach Sherri Coale is a freaking MILF!
Congrats, you Bulldogs. We are always suckers for the underdog story. This is it, as Michael and Kenny would say. Hey coach Huggins, Mike Krzyzewski is laughing at your 1-3-1 defense right now.
And as a side note we want to say we (the Mountain West Conference) almost had two football teams in the BCS. We had FOUR basketball teams in March Madness. Regardless of the outcome we deserve some respect. True dat.

Being in Las Vegas when San Diego State won the Mountain West Tournament outright for an automatic bid to the Dance. This will stick with us for years to come. Go Aztecs.
2) Kansas State / Xavier double overtime
Two overtimes because of ridiculous last second off balance three point shots to keep each team alive. The phrase "This is what it's all about" kept on being said at Gabby's house long after the game was over.
3) Kansas State / Butler
You had crying cheerleaders. Enough said!
4) Northern Iowa rocks the fucking world
This will be remembered as the defining moment of the tournament. Kansas. Kansas? UNI beat number one ranked KANSAS! After the game we turned to Mrs. March to Madness and said "Remember this moment. Tell your children about this moment. Tell your grandchildren about this moment. Make sure they never forget."
