 Four incredibly ugly Sweet 16 games tonight -- but hey, at least Duke lost!

It feels like it's the ACC, and then everyone else.

 

ACC 0-2 tonight, plus Maryland who should still be in the conference.

Heckuva game by Oregon tonight, especially beating Duke the way they did.  Oregon-Oklahoma should be a good game on Saturday.

Disappointed, of course, that the Terps lost last night but to be honest I didn't expect anything else. Kansas was the overall number one and Maryland was the definition of inconsistent this season. 

 

College basketball "experts" and even some fans may look at this season as a disappointment, but reaching the Sweet 16 for the first time in 13 years is a huge accomplishment. I'll be honest, I'm not much of a college basketball fan, but the Terps season this year forced me to at least follow it more than I usually do. Congrats to Kansas on a well-deserved win.

Maryland hasn't been to the sweet 16 in 13 years?! That's stunning. 

Always a good day when Duke loses in the tournament.  

I went heavy on coaching this year in my bracket and that's bit me. Miami and Michigan State especially. Currently 162 out of 182 in my money pool.

Wisconsin sure did crap their pants in the last minute of this game.  Not quite like Northern Iowa did, but for a team that was in the championship game last year...they sure had a lack of composure at the end.

That's slightly unfair. This team is much different than last year's.

 

Going into this year they lost the national POY and Sam Dekker to the NBA plus three other Seniors, two of which were 30+ minute guys. Their HC was coaching his 24th game ever, and their best player now is a redshirt Frosh.

All true.  But I would like to thank UNI for making Wisconsin's choke job less memorable

Syracuse, the team that wasn't supposed to be in the tourney, is now going to the elite 8. 

 

Wow, well this is March.

Ok, you can go back to calling Gonzaga choke artists if you wish.

Fixed. Those damn bullies are and will always be choke artists. May they suffer through 100 years of winless basketball!

Assuming North Carolina can hold on to this lead, it'll be the ACC Invitational on Sunday and the conference will have a representative in the title game....

So far, Oregon is showing why they didn't deserve a 1 seed.

 

On the OU side, Buddy is amazing.

Now, if we can only have a puppet Jim Nantz.

 

Wait, he already exists and works exclusively for the NFL on CBS season.

I used to doubt Buddy. After that Kansas game, I've been a believer ever since.

Buddy was just unconscious today.  Just nothing you can do when he's hitting fall-away threes with a hand in his face or hitting 28-30 footers.  Props to OU and their defense for shutting Oregon down today.
