That kid was hacked blatantly at the end of the Morehead St. game. I'm usually all about no calls at then end but the player has to be able to put up the shot.

UConn's path to the Elite 8 isn't really that difficult though. I'm not buying SDSU.

They're good. People don't watch them cause they play so many 11 PM EST start games. If UConn gets through SDSU, they aren't as good as Duke or Texas. They seeded higher than Texas cause of the Big East Tournament. I could even see them possibly losing to Arizona. When teams are so reliant on one player the way Conn is on Kemba Walker they rarely make it beyond the Elite 8, because one off or foul riddled game and they can't win.

I'm pretty much with you on UCONN, but after watching them in the Big East tournament, I'm going to find it hard to bet against Kemba Walker. Kemba himself moreso than the UCONN. I think the team with the best player and a guy who consistently comes through in crunch time prevails as often as teams that rely heavily on one guy fail. SDSU is flat out good. People sleep because they are from the west coast and a small conference, but they can play.

Crazy day today so far. That no-call at the end of the Louisville game was ridiculous. Horrible call.

I'm about 18 hours away from touching down in Vegas. I've already got my first ten bets planned. My whole weekend is going to hinge on hitting a five way parlay early tomorrow.

Betting on the NCAA tourney is a fool's errand. Even Nate Silver's odds aren't working out.

And Kansas' road is looking much easier now.

Walker is averaging like 10 dimes a game for the last month or so, so he's not the only scorer they have. Lamb has been excellent as well. Not really sure why people don't think UConn can't make a big run....Duke is not flawless by any means.

Michigan St. is so frustrating. That game was the story of their season, flashes of greatness but mostly terrible. I don't know how I was fooled. They looked good at the end of the season. I hate even more that they lost to UCLA, is there one guy on that team that's even remotely likable? Reeves Nelson looks like a real winner and not the Charlie Sheen version of winner. I'm holding off gloating about the Big Ten until I see Purdue play tomorrow but Wisconsin looked really good. I thought it was pretty hilarious during the Wisconsin game when the announcers made a comment about the lack of tats on the floor. :-b

You must have missed them get slapped by Penn State last week where they couldn't make a bucket and couldn't get a stop.

Aqua posted the sign-up link on Leftovers methinks. I played last year and so, I got an automatic invite back.
