  1. The field is set... I do have a few complaints, though. My biggest... -Why in the hell is Iona one of the stand alone 16 seeds? I'm sorry, but the records don't lie... Prairie View went 22-12. Iona went 17-15. I'm sorry, but that 17-15 record there ought to send the Gaels to Dayton to play Fairleigh Dickerson, not Prairie View. Otherwise... -If you're looking for a 12-5 upset, may I suggest Murray State over Marquette. I just have my doubts with both Liberty and New Mexico State. -Anything lower then a 12 for an upset? Well, UC Irvine looks like a possible bet to beat Kansas State...
  2. And assuring the Big West won't send a team that would of went .500 in Fullerton to Dayton. If anything, the teams heading to Dayton are going to be Iona, Robert Morris, North Dakota State and North Carolina Central. These are the weakest of the auto bids.
  3. Super Saturday is fast approaching... here's the bids up for grabs on this day. ACC - Charlotte, NC: #4 Florida State vs. #3 Duke (The Zion Show might hit peak performance here...) America East: #3 UMBC at #1 Vermont (Guess who's back? Everyone's favorite 1 seed killer seeks a return trip. Not if Vermont can stop them, though) Big 12 - Kansas City, MO: #5 Iowa State vs. #3 Kansas (The streak may be over, but the Jayhawks look to take home a tournament title instead) Big East - New York City, NY: #3 Seton Hall vs. #1 Villanova (The Pirates look to pull a fast one in the Big Apple) Big Sky - Boise, ID: #3 Eastern Washington vs. #1 Montana (Can the Eagles stop the mighty Grizzlies?) Big West - Anaheim, CA: #3 Cal State Fullerton vs. #1 UC Irvine (Anteaters look for payback from last year's loss to Titans) Conference USA - Frisco, TX: #2 Western Kentucky vs. #1 Old Dominion (Does the top seed have any gas in the tank left after two nail biting victories?) MEAC - Norfolk, VA: #3 North Carolina Central vs. #1 Norfolk State (Will home court be enough for the top seeded Spartans?) Mid-American - Cleveland, OH: #3 Bowling Green vs. #1 Buffalo (The rubber match between the Bulls and the only team to give them a threat in conference play) Mountain West - Las Vegas, NV: #4 San Diego State vs. #2 Utah State (Aztecs look to jack a bid from a potential bubble team) Pac-12 - Las Vegas, NV: #6 Oregon vs. #1 Washington (Dawgs and Ducks meet again for title) Southland - Katy, TX: #4 New Orleans vs. #2 Abilene Christian (The Privateers seek a 2nd trip in three years while spoiling a potential maiden trip for ACU) SWAC - Birmingham, AL: #2 Texas Southern vs. #1 Prairie View A&M (Winner here may avoid a trip to Dayton) WAC - Las Vegas, NV: #3 Grand Canyon vs. #1 New Mexico State (GCU looks to stop the Aggie juggernaut)
  4. One bid up for grabs tomorrow... Patriot League #2 Bucknell Bison at #1 Colgate Raiders Records BUCK: 21-11 (13-5) COL: 23-10 (13-5) The top two teams in the Patriot League square off on the home court of the Colgate Raiders. Bucknell has owned this league in the last few seasons, but they split the season series with Colgate. Thanks to tiebreakers (Colgate swept the season series with 4th seed American while Bucknell split the season series with American), the title game is at Colgate. Who takes home this rubber match?
  5. What Cleveland just did is make themselves a playoff contender. OBJ is going to help out big time...
  6. Five bids are up for grabs tomorrow Colonial - Charleston, SC: #2 Northeastern vs. #1 Hofstra (Both teams survived tough semifinal games. Can Justin Wright-Foreman, who dropped a tournament record 42 points in the semis, power the Pride to victory?) Northeast: #2 Fairleigh Dickerson at #1 St. Francis [PA] (The top two teams in the NEC square off) Horizon - Detroit, MI: #2 Northern Kentucky vs. #1 Wright State (The two best teams duel in the Motor City) Summit - Sioux Falls, SD: #4 North Dakota State vs. #2 Omaha (Both schools are more known for other sports, but these teams now have a shot at March Madness) West Coast - Las Vegas, NV: #2 St. Mary's vs. #1 Gonzaga (Yawn... wake me when someone other then these two are playing in this game...)
  7. Two more bids tomorrow.. Southern - Asheville, NC #2 UNC-Greensboro Spartans vs. #1 Wofford Terriers Records UNCG: 28-5 (15-3) WOFF: 28-5 (18-0) It's been an unusually strong year for the Southern Conference. How strong? Well, the top four teams (which includes Furman and ETSU) all had 20+ wins and two schools (the aforementioned Furman and Wofford) have been ranked in the Top 25 at points during the seasons. Wofford is currently ranked and is riding a long winning streak, which includes two beat downs of the team they're facing in the title game in UNC-Greensboro. Can the Spartans do the impossible or does Wofford continue to roll on? MAAC - Albany, NY #6 Monmouth Hawks vs. #1 Iona Gaels Records MON: 14-20 (10-8) IONA: 16-15 (12-6) On the flip side, the Metro Atlantic has had a massive down year. Only a few teams finished above the .500 mark overall and they're all within a loss or two of being at the Mendoza line. This includes conference champ Iona. Monmouth, on the other hand, had a godawful OoC portion of the season (1-12) but recovered in conference play and has won three in a row to get here. The winner here more then likely heads to Dayton, so... who wants that more?
  8. At least the games are good... that has helped the AAF at least be better then the original XFL.
  9. 3 bids will be up for grabs tomorrow... Big South #4 Gardner-Webb Running Bulldogs at #2 Radford Highlanders Records GWU: 22-11 (10-6) RAD: 22-10 (12-4) Radford returns to the scene of the crime where one year ago, the Highlanders won the Big South final on a buzzer beating shot to give them a trip to the Big Dance. Most of the cast from last year is back and looking for a repeat. Gardner-Webb is making their first trip here after knocking off conference co-champ Campbell in the semifinals. Can they take another high seed or does Radford return to the Big Dance? Missouri Valley - St. Louis, MO #6 Northern Iowa Panthers vs. #5 Bradley Braves Records UNI: 16-17 (9-9) BRAD: 19-14 (9-9) There will be no repeat of Loyola of Chicago's magic as the Missouri Valley has a final that no one saw coming: Bradley and Northern Iowa. The Braves started 0-5 in MVC play before getting red hot and taking down the top seeded Ramblers. Northern Iowa took down arch rival Drake with an upset of their own. Which surprise team takes home Arch Madness? Atlantic Sun #2 Liberty Flames at #1 Lipscomb Bisons Records LIB: 27-6 (14-2) LIP: 25-6 (14-2) A year ago, Liberty was in the Big South final when it saw their hopes go up in flames (literally) when Radford hit the game winning buzzer beater. New year, new conference and the same result for Liberty: A trip to the conference finals. This time, Lipscomb stands in the way. The teams split the regular season series, so this is the rubber match. Can Liberty take flight in their new conference home or does the Bisons snuff the Flames out once again?
  10. It's that time again... one bid on the line tonight. Ohio Valley - Evansville, IN #2 Murray State Racers vs. #1 Belmont Bruins Records MURR: 26-4 (16-2) BEL: 26-4 (16-2) It was a two horse race in the Ohio Valley this season and these horses meet for a shot at the automatic bid. Murray State has a player who has captured the nation's attention in Ja Morant, a stud who leads his team in scoring and has gain attention for his scoring ability and his dunking prowess. Belmont counters with a great player themselves in Dylan Windler, who can light it up as well. The Bruins won the only meeting between these two teams, so this is for all the marbles.
  11. Why couldn't they flip the Memphis-Atlanta game to the crappy app that no one has and put Birmingham-Orlando on CBS Sports Network? I think that would be far more interesting.
  12. It's probably down for good. Like what @NicDB said, EA has bigger fish to fry then fixing a game's team creation suite for a game that's 5 years old and on older hardware and is in the middle of a legal mine field.
  13. I'm taking International Falls here. They have home ice (no pun intended) for the Kellogg Cup Game and that's probably enough to end Hibbing's cinderella run.
  14. Oh, the beauty of single elimination... where a weaker team like Warroad can stun a powerhouse like the Victorias.
  15. Name: Donovan Masterton Age: 45 Home Town: San Diego, CA Bio: An owner of three car dealerships in the San Diego area, Donovan was originally from Australia and came to the states after living there for 15 years. His father and mother were farmers and they taught him the values that he holds today: That good honest hard work can lead to success. After graduating from San Diego State University with a degree in Accounting, Donovan started his own business at a car dealership. The owner of the place died a few years later, allowing the young Donovan to become the new owner of the place and allowed him to combine both his passions: business and selling. His dealerships also very popular as they are the local sponsor for Markball broadcasts in the area. As a former Aussie, Donovan loves how the game feels close to what he grew up watching as a kid. He roots for the Guardians but wishes for the league to come to San Diego one day. Top Cities: 1. San Francisco. CA: Part of Donovan's wishes is to see the game grow out west. While he is a fan of the Los Angeles Guardians, he secretly wishes for a franchise in San Diego. While he has been in San Francisco in the past, he feels that they would be the best location to help expand the game in the region. 2. Atlanta, GA: On a recent trip to Atlanta to meet with regional Ford dealership owners (One of his best dealerships is a Ford dealership), one of them was a fan of the regional Markball team that has seen the attendance numbers grow year after year. After watching a game with him, Donovan had an epiphany: Atlanta would be a great place to put a team in the league. 3. New Orleans. LA: Donovan's wife, Cherry, is from New Orleans and, like him, a fan of Markball. While she is 10 years younger then him, she grew up watching her team play. She celebrated the team's recent regional league championship. For her, getting a team in her old home town would be a great moment for the city she grew up in and, furthermore, a chance to further her bond with Donovan over something they both love. Realignment Plan Eastern Conference: Atlanta, Boston, Montreal, New York, Philadelphia, Toronto, Washington Western Conference: Chicago, Los Angeles, Michigan, Minnesota, Milwaukee, New Orleans, San Francisco
