2014-15 NCAA Basketball Thread: March Madness

Recommended Posts

I remember when the Great Alaska Shootout used to matter. Now, it is where Pete Gillen becomes irrelevant as a coach and as a person who is on CBS Sports Network.

I just looked at the schools that played in this tournament the last few years...this tournament used to have the likes of Duke and Kansas and Marquette. Now they have the likes of Mercer, UC Riverside, and Northeastern. What happened?

All of these other tournament have popped up and they provide better competition. I'm sure you remember the days where it was just the Maui Invite and the Great Alaska Shootout.

Now you have the events ran by ESPN (The Orlando Classic and the Wooden Legacy), the Battle 4 Atlantis, the MGM Grand Main Event, the Las Vegas Invite, and so on and so forth. It's kinda hard to get big names to go up to Alaska when you can spend your Thanksgiving in a warmer place.

ESPN didn't buy it.

Wow historically downtrodden NJIT beats Michigan in Ann Arbor.

Yet they beat Syracuse. <_< At least Louisville doesn't lose to those teams.

I cant believe it NJIT beat Michigan, that may be the biggest upset since Chamaniade beat UVA.

Just impressive by Arizona today vs Michigan, although some of it had to be that the Wolverines are now a garbage team.

Okie State @ Memphis..a game with:

fan bases with too high expectations;

mediocre coaches;

too much talent to lose as many games as they do.

Gus being Gus and losing it with Syracuse @ Villanova. I will rewind my DVR for the next half hour.

Looks like UCLA is reliving the late days of the Steve Lavin era today vs Kentucky.

Cannot watch due to the court.

Embarrassing loss for Arizona tonight in Vegas. Stanford and ASU pummeled UNLV this year, yet the Cats forgot to put them away. Hopefully this is an aberration and not a sign of things to come.

That was only if Louisville ended the season unranked but I'll change it anyway. :P (look back at page 2).

You are right...yesterday I could not view the entire forum as I kept getting malicious spyware warnings so I could not remember what the challenge was.
