    Are we just not going to do this?

    OSU/Dayton was entertaining, even if it wasn't an especially well-played game. Sucks to see Aaron Craft go out like that, but at least it's better than that terrible shot attempt he had in the Big Ten tournament.

    Its good to see CU didn't bother showing up. Tad Boyle is a very talented coach, I have no idea where that went so wrong.

    Seeing OSU lose was amazing. I hate Ohio so much.

    Bigger question is who's still in the running for Warren Buffets $1,000,000,000 offer.

    Nothing wrong with that, so much of life is luck anyway, and judging who will win a game based on whos jersey you like better or whatever reason isn't a bad route to go. People think the mega millions odds are bad, the odds of a perfect bracket are in the order of 1 in a quintillion, thats a lot of zeros.

    I hope so, dropping out of school after 4th grade will result in adults who act like that.

    I love thinking up slogans to put under Ohio's state entrance signs:

    I still don't understand all of the anti-Ohio sentiment on this board. The pot-shots about education don't really make sense, and the weather is better than the northeast.

    As far as OSU goes, nobody who has been paying attention is all that surprised about the loss. It was a team with no scorers who routinely shit the bed throughout the conference schedule. There weren't that many people holding their breath on a #6 seed.

    I grew up in Ann Arbor, home of U of M, hating Ohio just part of me. As for everyone else, hard to say

    I hate Michigan unless they are playing Ohio, because fuck Ohio, as a Michigan native it's just in your blood.

    I root for Michigan State in football and Duke has always been my basketball team, all you haters can get fucked.

    For the first time this year, I participated in an auction where you bid on individual teams. Each victory earns a % of the overall pot, (roughly .75% for a first round win) and it escalates by round. My "syndicate" of 4 guys focused on value plays, today was a big day for us potentially as we had Dayton, NC State, Arizona St, and Oklahoma (who we got a discount compared to other 5 seeds). Needless to say, I've hurled every expletive imagineable and have hated large portions of the evening. FUCK FARGO NORTH DAKOTA. NC State's choke was breath taking and ASU made a run just enough to give hope before biffing it by not rebounding.

    16 pt lead with eight minutes left, 6 pt lead with one minute left. That NC State choke was the worst that I've ever seen.

    Wolfpack shot 54% from the line, 9 for 20 in the last five minutes of regulation. Woof.

    I bitched about this on Facebook. When did boxing out become a lost skill? The ASU center stood around like a lump, looked scared to reach for the ball, then barely missed the block. Had he kept track of his man he could've easily moved with him and boxed him out, as he was in good position before the shot went up.

    To be fair, it was a brick. Its alot easier to rebound a miss on the offensive end when its that bad of a shot. Its not like he picked up a clean rebound, he lost it when it went to the ground. ASU's center is really good, but Ridley is 10X quicker and more athletic.

    Mercer got Duke? Does anyone even know what state Mercer is in?

    I don't think anyone has a perfect bracket now.

    It's in Georgia, a member of the Atlantic Sun conference. Last season, they won the conference regular season title and lost to FGCU in the finals. Nice two year run for that conference, isn't it?

    If you're cheering against a school like Mercer or North Dakota State because of "my bracket", I don't think you truly enjoy sports.
