More importantly, I want to know the name of the commedian that put us up against a "B" school. Six potential 16 seeds, and they put Kansas up against the "B". Someone threw CBS at least 15 minutes of air filler there. The first 6 point run BU goes on will bring out the highlight reel.

Louisville is riding a moderately hot streak, and ND is a bit of an enigma, but solvable. UNLV is full of players playing above what they should do on paper, and Illinois is full of underachievers. I think we will be facing UNLV.

Richmond could be the 5-12 game that supplies this years Cinderella (could also be KSU/ Utah State).

I think it is a toss up between PItt and KU as to who has the easiest side of the bracket. I know I don't envy Duke with both Texas and UConn. I think those are 3/4's that are better squads than the 2 seed in thier bracket and could have easily been 1 seeds.

BYU as a 3 is a mistake, but the true tragedy is CU playing in the NIT. How VCU and UAB made it, I will never accept.

Two good things in our favor. Both times we were in the 2nd round and neither time were we a #1 seed. Gotta think positive here.

CU did get screwed, but I don't feel too sorry for them as they are skipping out of the Big 12 next year. The Big East in general is overrated... I have seen way too many Big East crapfests this year. They will be lucky to have one team make the Elite 8. As for KU, I am expecting the worst, but hoping for the best. I can see parallels to 2008, but also parallels to 2010, so we will see what happens.

"CU did get screwed"... No they didn't. If the field was still 64 they wouldn't have made it anyway. I do agree with your comments about the Big East.

Another big joke is the Big 10 getting 7 teams in and the Big 12 only 5 teams.

Elijah Taylor? or Tyshawn Johnson? I can't remember.

Yeah I'm a little confused as to why everyone is b****ing about CU not getting in, when a couple of months ago everyone wanted them to fall off the face of the planet after announcing their departure from the Big 12.

On a side note, purely from an athletic standpoint...I'm not sure why they DIDNT get in, especially when Michigan State did??

Because they deserved to be in by any measure. Also it's because of Tad Boyle.
