^No, not random upsets,

^No, not random upsets, thinking back the St. Mary's pick was a bit foolish, but the I really thought the Lobos had what it took to go to the final four. However I was very weary of picking them over Lousville. Those weren't random upsets, but they just didn't pan out.

I did have Ohio in the Sweet 16, I had Duke going out in the second round, but too bad I had Notre Dame over them, if it weren't for Vandy choking, Murray St Choking, and VCU choking, along with FSU, and the Lobos I'd be in this thing, but I lost all the close games, lol.

Louisville was too athletic

Louisville was too athletic and quick in the backcourt for Michigan State, especially since they dont have a steady PG really.

Wisconsin needs more athleticism man. They have shooters and Jordan Taylor had a great last 2 or 3 years, but they just dont have the athleticism to make it over that Sweet 16 hump man.

This Marquette v. Florida matchup has intrigue. 2 guard heavy teams, but I think Crowder is the mismatch as usual.

Deshaun Thomas has 20 points at halftime against Cincy. He is an underrated prospect due to his ability to be a mismatch and put the ball in the hoop. He has a knack for scoring and at 6'7 240, he is strong enough to function anywhere from 8-18 ft just as much as 22 ft. Dion Dixon has been ineffective, and Yancy Gates has been floating like he has a penchant for doing at times and he got hit with 2 fouls.

Joe Jackson's son is on the roster and he played a little this year. He's a combo guard in the Travon Hughes mold

If Jackson plays well next

If Jackson plays well next year then they could be really good. Evans, Gasser, Berggren, Bruesewitz, Brust, Sam Dekker coming in and they always have someone new step up every year.

Cashmere Wright has stepped

Cashmere Wright has stepped up as a leader for this team, I never really liked him as a PG but he's grown up alot.

Kilpatrick for Cincy is an athletic guy with length and energy, and he hasnt shot bad this game. Intriguing prospect as well

Don't understand what Barnes

Don't understand what Barnes is thinking. He's way too predictable. Take two dribbles and step back. He just needs to take one more dribble and he's right at the rim, he's bailing out too soon.

As expected UNC is a lost

As expected UNC is a lost cause without a point guard.

Happened with Felton and Lawson. Happening again with Marshall.

I had not realized how important Kendall Marshall was for this team. I mean, they have three 1st round picks on the floor and they're struggling.

It's really not surprising to me. I remember UNC in 2004-2005 a team with Sean May, Marvin Williams, McCants, and Jawad Williams would lose to mediocre teams without Felton. Santa Clara was one of them if I remember.

Harrison Barnes doesn't have

Harrison Barnes doesn't have that killer instinct.

I'll take Terrence Ross over him, no doubt, even though Ross is going 10-15 spots lower than Barnes in the mocks.

I wouldn't. Barnes hasn't

I wouldn't. Barnes hasn't played well at all, but I'm still definitely taking him over T-Ross.

Edit: He wouldn't still be shooting if he lacked a killer instinct.

Ross is a freak. I wouldn't want to compare anyone to D-Wade but have you seen the way Ross creates on the bounce?

Straight freaky.

I don't know how UNC beats Kansas or NC State without Kendall Marshall now.

Ohio scored 2 points in overtime, freethrows.

Yeah, he's good. But remember

Yeah, he's good. But remember who's playing in the Elite 8 next week instead of the NIT. UW isn't as talented as UNC, but they are too good to be in the NIT. Barnes mistakes are magnified by a lot, which isn't the case for Ross. He'll still be very good at the next level.

Dear Kansas,

Please croak.

P.S., if Kendall Marshall is good to go, you will lose by 15.

Kentucky has HORSES. Purebred horses out there. That defense? Woah.

Perry Jones is not tough, Im getting more and more concerned about him.

Quincy Acy is the only player on Baylor who is competing. That's why I really like Acy.

Shouts out to Coach Frank Martin for being on CBS as an analyst right now! He's doing great too, Charles and Kenny too.

Could I win the bracket if I got the finals matchup right and winner? Even if I had Missouri and FSU in the final four?

never mind, surprised how many people picked the final four right. I think Kansas vs. Kentucky, and that's wat I picked.

Horrible CBS Camera Work

It would be a lot more enjoyable game if the CBS director wasn't semi-incompetent. Why is he giving us a long distance, ultra wide, panoramic view of the court? It's like watching the game from high up in the balcony. He seems much more interested in showing us the crowd as opposed to the game.

The camera work in the Baylor-Kentucky game was vastly superior. In that game the director brought the viewer down on the court and it made the experience so much better.
