At least USC didn't go 8-10 in a very weak Pac-12. What has ASU done the past 2 months? At least USC made it to the Pac-12 title game. 

 

Oklahoma also hasn't won a game away from home in 2018. But of course it would be a travesty if Trae Young wasn't involved in the NCAA Tournament. 

The three bubble teams which were part of the FBI investigation were not given bids: Louisville, Oklahoma State and USC.

The season’s more than two months long…

 

Bit annoyed about being the first team out when you beat the last team in, on the road, without your two best players, AND they finished with the same conference record as you and didn’t really have better wins, but at the same time, I can’t make the good case that ND should be ahead of some of the teams behind it in the pecking order (SMC and MTSU most notably), so I’m fine getting left out.

 

Notre Dame wasn’t winning this thing or making a good run anyway — we were never as good as preseason expectation when healthy — so I’d rather go tear things up in the NIT and send off our seniors right.

You know you got hammered when a 13 seed can clear the bench against you in the waning minutes.

And that is how the Pac 12 goes out of the NCAA Tournament, on a whimper. What a forgettable 2017-18 academic year for the PAC-12.

College basketball is stupid, and the NCAA Tournament is HANDS DOWN the most overrated sporting event in the history of mankind.

 

That being said, watching the Arizona Wildcats flame out year after year in spectacular fashion will always make me smile.

 I think it's mostly the fact that there's games on top of games on top of games at all hours of the day.

 

It's like an NFL Sunday, but not boring.

UVa's pace of play (or lack of) makes this game OVER!

UMBC is also now in the Bonus.

The Virginia players look like they're about to go to their execution. This is fun, but also a tad excruciating.
