btw I ain't got no love for

btw I ain't got no love for the people who had Syracuse advancing to the Final Four then switched it up once Fabricio Melo went down.

Let's keep it real and have The Ohio State going to the Final Four since Day 0 baby.

Game manager and elite defender A. Craft at the point.

Athletes and shooters Bufie and D. Thomas on the wing.

Certified banger Sully in the post.

Ohio State will toss Cuse's salad with/without Melo just like they did to Duke to the tune of 22.

I had 'Cuse in the Elite 8 then moved them down to losing to K-State once I heard Melo was out.

Even with Melo, I didn't like their post offense at all.

Drummond really effects Iowa

Drummond really effects Iowa State's shots in the paint. It seems like he's nearly blocking every shot near the rim. Too bad he picked up that 2nd foul and can't get physical with Royce because of it.

Drummond stop laying the ball in! Dunk the damn ball! Go up strong every possession and at worst you get fouled!

It's ridiculous. I go up stronger then him and I'm 5'9 170. If I were his height I'd try to dunk everything inside of 7 feet.

UConn is too unorganized man. They don't run the plays, and they are not defending with urgency.

This is why I don't see the whole "Dwight Howard" or "Amar'e Stoudemire" comparisons. He plays very weak and doesn't use his size or athleticism as an advantage.

If you don't use your advantages against 6'8 and 6'9, 220lb centers, what makes me think you can do this against 6'11-7'1, 250-280lb men that get paid to play basketball?

I like Fred Hoiberg as a coach. Iowa State plays with the kind of spacing an NBA team does, it makes them tough to defend especially with a matchup ploy like Royce White.

you know im a huge pac nut

you know im a huge pac nut hugger, but i've never given colorado much respect. I thought they were the 5th best team in the pac this year and were extremely lucky to win the conference tourney. I have them losing to unlv in all the brackets i made this year. but they look really solid right now. The gaurds are quick and they defend well. ANd senior wing carlon brown is looking like he has it going which makes them extra dangerous since one of their weaknesses is lack of a go to scorer. But he had it going during the pac 12 tourney and is starting strong vs unlv.

Dale Worthington

You were a huge Mizzou fan about a month ago, now your changing your tune on them?

Whats up wit that?

I told you they weren't good enough or deep enough to go that far but you insisted that they would and now your switching it up?

Colorado is beating Colorado

Colorado is beating Colorado good right now.

Andre Drummond is lazy. Or tired. He looked at his teammate save the ball and did not move and the ball went right by his nose. And then he never jumps for rebounds.

Really like this New Mexico State team, even though they are probably going to lose this game. Tough matchup in Indiana. If they were matched up with any other 4 seed I would have really liked there chances.

Dave, I know. I'm not going

Dave, I know. I'm not gonna front; I've had a change of heart with them.

Their heart and perimeter play are undeniable but that's not going to be enough to make up for their lack of size and depth.

I'm still as high on OSU as ever though.

UNC is the favorite to win the tourney and I have UK and OSU right behind.

Wow, 134 people and no one's perfect, lol. I'm in one at school with 22 people in it, one guy has a perfect bracket, but he did make three of them, lol.

Not a bad start to the Tourney, very dissapointed of UConn, they had so much talent but just weren't able to put it together. Give Iowa St. credit, they played their asses off, and they might not win against UK, but they'll give them a run for their money.

we're seeing what i mentioned earlier with colorado not having a go to scorer being one of their biggest weaknesses. Askia booker and carlon brown have been quiet this second half and they dont know what to do on offense.
