Cut Kansas.

I like Texas and Kentucky.

West Virginia if they make it in.

Really can't stand Bill Walton. He completely ruins the game with his commentary.

Roguie, are we having a Bracket Contest here ??? :encouragement:

Unfortunately SS probably not. :sorrow: Yes Homos

Can't believe NCST made it over Clemson. Tigers beat them 3 times this season and finished two games ahead in ACC standings. I know they lost to a few cupcakes but still.

Pitt can beat Miss St but Iowa St will be tough.

Looks very favorable for them making it to FF and if Houston makes it not nearly as strong if Sasser can't play.

I never root for Duke but hot of late. Tennessee missing PG could easily beat them and Purdue has big Man but might not be good enough with guard play.

That sucks! It would be something fun to do... :amazing:

Yeah, I definitely like Pitt to win that game and definitely perhaps to the Sweet 16.

Really like the path Texas has. No one but me is picking them and I absolutely love that...

Who do you like MM? More importantly, how have you been? :cheerscheers:

Very true. I was actually surprised WVU got such a favorable seed and first game matchup against a subpar B10 team. If West Virginia is getting points an an auto play for me plus the ML... Huggins will have them ready to play...

Though this season think KU over achieved and Texas was Big12 preseason fav and playing high level presently. Bama and Texas right now look like best bets while Houston without Sasser? suspect. Purdue always chokes it and glad to see it. UCLA missing key member and Arizona can be offensive monster but their defense scares me. UConn could easily beat KU.

Just saw Dickie V predicting Bama vs Texas but missed who he picked it to win lol.

And I'm doing great my friend and thanks for asking! :cheerscheers:

PS Just saw Jay Bilas picking Duke to make it to the final. What a bias DB. I can't take him doing Duke games.

Great to hear that you're doing great! You're very welcome, my man! My favorite guys these days are definitely Bilas and Shulman. Used to be Vitale and Raferty, but unfortunately their days are numbered.

Can't fuckking stand Gus Johnson. I honestly couldn't wait to listen to Al Macguire, Dick Enberg and Merv Olsen. Pardon my missplelling. The 4:00 PM Sunday NFL games back in the day were priceless...

Can never count out UCONN playing in the Garden.

Actually something I'd like to see one of these days.

Just looked up and Terps only won 2 away games against Minny and Louisville. Even MrsM (loves CBB and knows it pretty well) said WTH when I told her Cards record was 4-28. Terps also got blown out at home against UCLA. They did beat Miami neutral court but back in November.

So playing in Alabama and probably have no clue how HOT Stevenson has been. Always loved Huggy Bear back to his Cincy days. Love coaches like that taking no shit from refs/players/everbody. F that cuddling crap!

Have to think about my winner awhile after picking my bracket. Lost my son's friends one by 1 point last year. Didn't even pick KU to go to final. Should have homo .... I mean HOMERED it. They let me down lots too many times previously killing my pool early.

SS, loved these highlights last season! Remy Martin was my boy on that team though didn't play much during the year. Self though will be forever grateful to him for in the clutch singlehandedly getting him the title. That 3PT at 65-65 was so big! Self doesn't play guys who don't play defense and Remy never previously did at Arizona ST but last play in vid shows he learned.

MM, I'm getting Rogie to merge these threads so they're easier to comprehend, read and understand...

By the way, I found a food that both of my cats simply love...

Hope my ex-fiance is doing well. We talk on ocassion so that's a good thing...

SS, you have to realize this is not anywhere near a sports discussion forum. Tron does his best during bases season but can't blame him giving up on posting plays when no feedback comes his way. I love March Madness and doing the bracket but other than a few here they probably know less than I do with regards to hockey.

I love hockey during the playoffs (especially if a game 7 OTer) but I do follow teams play but don't know enough about individual players. Like so many Euro and foreign players these days I can't remember how to spell their names let alone pronounce them. Like learning a new language too old to do so.

I liked it much better when 99% of the players were toothless Canadians! :canada:

I love talking sports. I’m a diehard Pittsburgh Pirates Fan and a lot of us aren’t left. I have a hatred towards the current organization and ownership, however they have so much talent it’s incredible. Players I mean. Up here and in the minors…
