    It's probably worth mentioning how funny it is that Kentucky didn't make it in. To put a little salt on their wounds, Louisville plays in Rupp arena. Time to paint Lexington red.
    But wait... there’s more to this wonderful story... In rather ironic twist, the Wildcats got a #1 seed in the NIT... but because the REAL tournament (NCAA) is using their building, they have to travel to Pittsburgh to play Robert Morris University in RMU's 3,000 seat gym. So, Kentucky is a #1 seed in the NIT but opens on the road, in a tiny gym.

    The Hoosiers got a #1 seed and open in Dayton... two wins there and they head east to DC for the East Region. Possible opponents include Miami, Syracuse, Butler and Illinois...

    Have to quote Tom Izzo here... He said he's ready to play a team that doesn't share Big Ten membership with Michigan State. Any team."I'd play the Lakers tomorrow," Izzo said after Saturday's 61-58 loss to Ohio State, "instead of some of the teams I've played recently."

    I think I can relate. Theses big conferences have been beating up on each other for the past 3 months or so... time to break out and play some other teams...
    cant wait for Thursday and the real action to start.

    Kentucky had better start picking it up or they are going to lose this game against Robert Morris. This is a heckuva game in the NIT. Team Robert Morris are not intimidated at all by Kentucky and they are playing to win!

    WOW! What a game. Robert Morris defeats Kentucky by two (59 - 57) and the game came down to the last second. That was fun.

    D, hopefully I didn't jinx you but I just filled out my bracket and I have Miami beating Florida in the Final Four and then beating Wisconsin in the Final. I went with a ton of upsets, figured the way it's been this year I've got a decent chance of being right!

    I loved it... couldn’t be happier for CoachCal! The only way to top that would be when the NCAA vacates last year's National TItle...

    There were a few upsets in the first day of tournament action... Harvard over New Mexico... Oregon over Oklahoma St... Cal over UNLV... along with the usual 8-9 flip flops... The Pac-12 had two 12-seeds beat 5-seeds (Oregon and Cal)...

    But I did ok in my pools... I’m in 3, and tied for first in one, 2nd place in another and tied for 3rd in the final one... Hope that continues today...

    Let’s go Hoosiers!

    I did call the Oregon upset, and I'm kicking myself because I ALMOST picked Harvard. I actually had them, and went back and changed it.

    Oh well...

    The sad/scary part is that Davidson had Marquette beat but threw the ball away instead of calling time out to settle themselves down... And the Akron thing was a disaster - kids sick and suspended... oh, what could have been. I guess it’s what makes the tournament so much fun to watch...

    No doubt about it, my friend. Also, I would never place a bet in regard to the NCAA tournament. The risk of upsets is too great...;D

    Dang, NC State lost and Kansas St is losing by 18 at the half. What the heck!? At least The U took care of business by walloping Pacific 78 - 49.

    I called the Temple over NC State in my bracket...

    K State's biggest liability is Bruce Weber... the rest of the B1G loved having him at Illinois...

    And the mouths telling ius how great the Mountain West Conference was are sure quiet now - the conference is 0-4 in the tournament.
