Ouch.... I was two three pointers out of first place. Poor Gonzaga and WVU....

Go Boston College - you are my only hope!
And definitely go George Mason!!! (Larranaga for president!)

Woah, so there goes my entire bracket (I had Duke in the finals, argh!)

Only UCONN can redeem me now. Time to put my tax dollars to use! Go Huskies [The Wave]

Sigh. WVU! Argh! Defeat snatched from the jaws of victory!

And that twit Battista blowing Gonzaga's game on three boneheaded plays down the stretch. In my opinion, they have him and only him to blame for losing.

#1 - Zags waste 35 seconds off the clock and miss a shot. Battista rebounds with 1 min left, and instead of dribbling out and wasting another 35, he puts up a quick shot that misses and allows UCLA to get the board and make 2 points.

#2 - Zags again waste 25+ seconds off the clock, and Morrison misses a shot. Battista overpursues and fouls on the rebound, stopping the clock and letting UCLA get two more points to come within one.

#3 - Zags inbound and get the ball to Battista, who, instead of dishing back to his guard behind him who was WIDE OPEN, decides to hold onto the ball, and gets it stripped. UCLA makes 2 more points and goes up by 1.

So, in the span of about a minute, this idiot makes three stupid plays that amounted to 6 UCLA points.

Ah, but it takes more than 6 points to come back from a double digit deficit.

Totally. But that twit did a huge chunk of damage that ultimately were the 6 straws that broke the camel's back.

And that Nova/BC game! One of the worst officiated games I've seen in the tournament so far, if not the worst, on both sides of the ball. I'm happy Nova won, but no matter who won the loser would have had a case against the refs.

Madness.

That wasn't a travel. [Frown]

But more, importantly... MASON WON!!!!! Fairfax, Virginia represent! I went to Jim Larranaga's basketball camp when I was like 12. That's about as close as I get to any person who's ever been a member of the Great Eight.

UConn is once again sucking the nails out of the floorboards. Perhaps Washington is a team they won't be able to come back against?

UConn is full of great players with great talent and great egos. They don't play well together, and don't get motivated. Only luck and raw talent has saved them from hungrier teams... it may end tonight.

Did I mention George Mason is in the Elite Eight? I just want to make sure that is clear.

UConn lives to suck another day. As much as I want Big East teams to advance to boost the conference strength of schedule next year, I'd love to see George Mason finally stick it to those bozos.

Still, I think it may come down to Nova beating them in the Final Four.

Despite the fact that it will put a permanent end to my bracket, I just can't help cheering for George Mason.

Shouts out to George Mason for making the final four. Their campus is just a few miles from where I live so this past week everyone was either drunk or crazy.

I'm not drunk, so I guess that proves I'm crazy.

Well, looks like we have to give the applause to adam613 in the Hatrack winners bracket. Everyone is pretty much set and can't move any higher than where we are right now. Although Pixie picked Florida as well, but it won't be enough to catch adam.

Congrats to the top three in our pool. I'm mid-ground, but I'm happy. Still did better than I thought I would (and picked more winners than Mean Old Frisco) [Smile]

Isn't picking the winner worth 32 points?

I was under the impression that Florida winning tonight made me #1.

And since I started this tourney in last place (or near 'nough to it) That would mean I went Worst To First.

You're right, Pixie!

For some reason, I thought adam had chosen Florida to win the final as well -- but he didn't.

It's all you! Way to go!
