Well, Stanford his getting their ass handed to them by Louisville.

Not that it would have helped them, but I really felt Stanford should have gotten a lower seed.. they were a team "on the bubble" and they got an 11 seed.. oh well.

Alright, let me ask a question to those of you watching CBS's coverage today. Are your local affiliates running a periodic crawl to advise people that The Price is Right and The Bold and the Beautiful are being preempted for tournament coverage and will return on Monday with no episodes missed? KMOV is doing that here in St. Louis. Seems to me that the kind of people who are regular daytime TV watchers are probably already well-enough informed to realize why their shows aren't on. I guess there are enough shut-ins and decrepit Bob Barker groupies who are placing angry calls to the station to justify running the crawl here in the St. Louis metro area.

Yeah, a six seed in the NIT is what the Cardinal deserved.

I must say this has been one of the least exciting opening days of the tournament in recent year. Not many if any close games down the stretch. Plus it hurts that I'm not living in an area with crappy college basketball teams that don't make the tournament (like NYC). So far are three games here have been local DC area school and thus CBS can't switch out to a closer game.

Plus Syracuse isn't in. The whole things feels illegitimate.

I think the committee didn't put Syracuse in just because Boheim was bitching on how they should expand the tournament.

I think we can all agree SU didn't make it for some stupid reason that had nothing to do with the team's wins and losses.

By the way, every year I pick a Bob Knight team to win based on his tournament experience, and every year I'm disappointed. It's my only blemish on an otherwise perfect bracket.

Congratulations to Washington State, their first NCAA tournament victory in twenty-three years I believe.

6 conference losses and a 23-10 record, and just barely beat Southern Alabama by 6.

Yeah, its the worst snubbing in NCAA history. :rolleyes:

I don't care how powerful your conference is, how much big money is tied to your school and how closely tied you are to Nike clothing marketing endeavors, but if you can only rank sixth place in your conference, and could not get past the quarterfinals in your conference tournament, you should expect that you might get snubbed. At least it shouldn't be a shock, and its certainly not some outrageous offense to humanity.

I'm a Huge fan of Stanford and to see them get crushed is Dishearting,partly the reason they lost is Louisville with the home court adavantage,being only 70 miles away and stanford 2400 miles away,no matter how good your are,your not gonna beat Louisville playing a home game,the committie messed up there and other places too :(
