Ohio States’s Athletic Director should ask for $8,000,000 or else God will call him home after this loss.

Been a while since we've seen a 2-3 zone demolition like this in the tournament. Or at least that I can remember.

 

SDSU has no idea what to do and Syracuse is making shots. Really fun!

Everyone's favorite pick for an upset is getting throttled by a very underrated Buffs team.

Looks like the VCU Rams just became the first team in March Madness history to not lose a game in the NCAA tourrnament, but not win the tournament.

I wasn't sold on Georgetown when the brackets came out and my thoughts were validated in a very emphatic fashion. It's funny how the 5-12 games were this year: The upsets everyone wanted didn't happen and the one that did happen was the one no one wanted (Oregon State).

Ohio University upsetting Virginia. Not the Ohio team that I expected to still be in the tournament but way to represent the Buckeye State Bobcats.

If it wasn't for winning in 2019, one would think there is some curse on Virginia.

Maybe there is? Did they make a deal with the devil after losing as a 1 seed?

16 years after getting whipped by a fat nobody in the title game, Illinois is getting curb stomped in the Ro32 by a fat nobody with a sex offender mustache.

You knew the bracket seedings would be a little off with some incomplete seasons, all the covid breaks, etc -- but still, gimme all the upsets!

I'm still trying to figure out why people thought Texas was a good 3rd seed.

True. But this year they were never guaranteed to put a complete game together all year.

I think a combination of AAU and the rise of positionless basketball means there's no predictability in college basketball anymore. Talent ultimately wins out, as it always did, but there's less talent in college basketball.

 

Seedings are increasingly worthless.

Especially when Kentucky and Duke have continued to underperform year after year. Getting great talent that realistically won't be there past April is not a sustainable plan. When those kids say, "screw it, I'll save my legs and sit out the second half of the season", do you really want to not have kids that are good players but will stay around longer?
