Welcome Joe, but I'm afraid you're too late. There were a handful of folks who wanted to talk, but a couple of trolls sent most of them packing. I'm only still here because Indian, a BC fan, has a bunch of killer Notre Dame and Alabama jokes he shares with us from time to time. In between those, I dangle a feather in front of the trolls, keeps them amused and off the streets. It doesn't take much so I don't mind performing this public service.
I haven't the foggiest who will make it to the Final Four. I'd like to see Larry Brown and SMU do it, but that seems unlikely. Wichita State is my pick for the first 1 seed to bow out, but I suspect I'll have lots of company there.
Syracuse has been stumbling. If anyone other than that jerk Boeheim was behind the bench, I would say they have the pieces to pull out of it and make a run. But Boeheim is an overrated game coach in addition to being an insufferable pr!ck, so that is not happening.
On the other side of the spectrum from Boeheim, Tom Izzo. If he had more horses I'd say Michigan State was a lock for the Final Four. I like him so much I'm going with him anyway.
UConn looks like a Sweet 16 team. Kevin Ollie still is a little green, but so far he's been doing a great job. The American Conference is not their friend, as far as preparing them. The drop off after the first 5 is substantial. Can't rule out Louisville to go a little deeper.
As for my UMass team. Hoping for a Sweet 16. They're mentally tough enough, but watching them on the court gets very aggravating. They'll make a series of truly stupid plays, and then follow with a lightening quick run. I've aged a decade watching them this season. They can win a couple, or bow out right away, neither would be a surprise.
And for the Fighting Irish Troll: I think the best place to watch the NCAA tournament is probably Father O'Malley's, that Bar off of Broad and Main.
Chairborne, you're excused. Watching the Locker Room attendants fold towels as they get ready for Spring Football is your best bet.
I like UMass' team this year. fighters. would be cool to seem them go on a run.
I just like seeing good basketball more than anything.
sadly, The huskies got murdered by Louisville for a second time this year..
