The UK Cats are in. I'm also cheering for the Grizzlies!!

Posted by Sod Buster (+100) 16 years ago
Damn right John! You and everybody in the State of Montana should be cheering for the Griz. This is their best oppurtunity to win a first round game in years!!!!!!!!!! This is the best oppurtunity for the State of Montana to say... [email protected]*% you Nevada!!! (not that Nevada is all that bad) If they can get Nevada's starting 5 in a little foul trouble, then the Griz can finish them off. Let's go GRIZ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Drinks at Johnny Blades after the game.

The only way the Grizzlies can possibly win is if Larry Krystkowiak comes off the bench to guard Nick Fazekas.
Top
Posted by Sod Buster (+100) 16 years ago
Or if Fazekas gets in foul trouble...which could happen...maybe.

The point is you gotta believe!!!!

Oh man, Duke lost! Now THAT will screw up the brackets.

Gonzaga killed me. I guess picking Montana to play Gonzaga wasn't a bright idea.

Someone in the milescity.com group is in the 99.4% percentile.

Who could that be?????

It's that great basketball mind, Bob L.!!!!!!!!!!!!!

*taking bow*

However, I will still lose to R. Bonine, who still has all of his Final Four participants remaining.

Oh, and BTW, I don't care what happens now since Duke lost.

Woo hoo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I hate you, Coach K. I hate you, JJ.

You deserve kudos. I wasn't in the 99.4% after the first games. DAMM IT!!!!!!!!

Life is good, Duke is OUT!!!!!!!

And, the Zags continue their fabulous choking streak! That game last night was one of the worst chokes I have ever seen in tournament history.

Nova! Nova! Nova!

Well, I'll be in last place in the milescity.com group after my bracket fell apart over the weekend. I've got nothing left. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted.

How much fun would it be to pick #1 seeds, anyway.

Posted by Russell Bonine (+240) 16 years ago
OUCH!!

Unbelievable, not 1 stinking team out of the 4, that I had remaining in my bracket, made it. My bracket absolutely blew up!

I guess every tournament needs a Cinderella story.

Bob L. it looks like you might get "bragging rights" after all.

I'm actually winning two pools where there is cash involved.

I need LSU to lose, and I'll be the big winner.

Unfortunately, I think LSU will be cutting down the nets.

I am hoping you are right, Bob. Big Baby is looking tough.

Gunnar:

Tyrus Thomas isn't bad, either.

UCLA's only chance is if the refs swallow the whistle like in the UCLA/Memphis game. Crap, that was chaotic and ugly basketball, but still compelling to watch. Howland has UCLA gooning it up like a Big East team.

LSU may find a way to win even if the refs let them play.

I think the refs have been choking on their whistles the whole tourney. It's been ugly in general.

Hard for me to believe Big Baby has that much stamina, he's a big, big boy.

Big Baby has a Big Skull too.

Dude must have a size 9 cranium.

He couldn't come close to wearing the LSU championship cap after the game.

I hear on ESPN radio this evening that there were 4 people out of 3 million that correctly picked all four teams left. Amazing.

Actually, one guy from Nebraska confused George Washington with George Mason. He meant Washington and wrote down Mason.
