I'm just glad UVA made it...been a long time for the Wahoo's. I'm happy with the ACC title this year (and beating Duke to win it). If they make it to the Sweet 16 I'll be ecstatic.

I could not believe ND won against Oklahoma, pew that kick me out of that bracket.

I am going with UNC all the way, Marcus Paige went to my high school, and my son wants to play ball there when he is done with High school. Go tar heels!!!!!!!

A pretty exciting day in basketball. Three upsets. Three nail bitters. Just some fantastic basketball. Setting up a showdown in the Bluegrass state as Louisville and Kentucky will meet again in the tourney like they did just 2 years ago.

UK - Louisville is a dream game for the NCAA. Probably exactly what the selectors wanted when they made the brackets. Talk about a must see game! The team I wouldn't want to play is Baylor. They look impressive. That should be a good game - a real test for Wisconsin. They should be used to playing teams with bright green colors by the end of the tournament

I didn't either.

We certainly cannot start as slowly as we usually do for that game.

Hey, AJs, I understand your team is playing in my neck of the woods tonight. Like 5 minutes down the road from me.

I checked on tickets. They still have tickets, but they are a bit pricey for me. $130 per seat! I guess I'll watch from home...

You'd get Arizona vs. SDSU in the 2nd game too, though. Look at it as $65 per game?

Honda Center - just a tad bit smaller than Rupp. Glad they're still playing in those types of arenas.

They'll be competing for eyeballs in Memphis with Dayton/Stanford
&
Fla./UCLA

...of course, for the FF - they'll be rolling out the portable court with its stiff, unbroken-in rims in Jerry's House, max capacity 118,000?
They shooting sight-lines change from 20K to 100k seating...

It's more $$ for the networks, etc, but I think the FF games' shooting% goes down...and it's not just nerves...

Kids gotta feel like they're shooting in a cavern.

Whoops...hit submit too fast...

"No team throughout the country has been more maligned despite more success than the Badgers," writer Will Leitch begins on Sports on Earth.

The Badgers have the second-most-tortured fan base of the remaining teams in the tournament, according to Leitch.

Whose fans have it worse worse? Virginia, coached by Tony Bennett, the son of former Badgers coach Dick Bennett.

Leitch continues on the Badgers:

"They've made the tournament 16 consecutive years, and have now made the Sweet 16 three out of the last four. Yet still no one ever believes in them, preferring to assume they can't score (not true anymore) and play boring basketball (never true). Bo Ryan is the most underrated coach in the country, but he's never made that Final Four. Badgers fans are intense about their team, and they've waited a long time for this. Here's hoping this is finally the year."

They're going to make it, USA Today says.

It's already done as far as the nation's newspaper sees it. At No. 6 on a list of bold predictions for the Sweet Sixteen is that the Badgers will make the Final Four.

Scott Gleeson writes:

"Bo Ryan has one of his most potent, gifted offensive teams that he's ever coached — led by forwards Sam Dekker and Frank Kaminsky and guards Ben Brust and Traevon Jackson. That won't be the key in Wisconsin reaching the Final Four, though. The key is on the defensive end, where the Badgers are always sound. The best offensive teams in this tournament — Creighton and Duke, for instance — are at home watching. The best defensive teams are still playing. If Wisconsin's Big Ten record says anything, it's that this offensively gifted squad can win when shots aren't falling."

I believe in you, Bucky!

jrc, no one thought UD would get past OSU either... but they did. And past Syracuse. And Stanford...

Oh, bit of trivia. That Billionaire Bracket thing QuikenLoans had going? UD knocked out the *last* person who had a shot at the billion. He'd picked OSU to win. Well, he'd have had a shot if he'd remembered to submit his bracket...

Don't underestimate UD. They've surprised a lot of people so far.

Oh and Moo? Loooved the DDN headline. Knew it was a shot at OSU the second I got the paper. THE in nice, big 144 point type.

We may need to put $301 (his judgement amount) in envelopes for some of them since they prefer deferred billing. Gainesville is a small town, so how could he not know he'd get recognized and caught? I can't defend him. He had excellent bob and weave maybe?

It's the aj's vs. the jj's!

Wow what a game! Coach Cal put someone right in their star player's face the entire 2nd half - it won the game (cuz that dude is WELL deserving of B10 POY!) - and some clutch CLUTCH play by the kiddie CATS!

Tell me again how the SEC had a 'down' year?
(remember - we did it WITHOUT Willie!)

Here's what's interesting too - I don't think we've played anyone quite like Wisconsin...very very VERY disciplined team - a beauty to watch, really...
NOR
has Wisconsin seen anyone quite like the kiddie Cats...
Can't wait!
BRING ON THE AJ'S!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I like how this was written:
"To make the Final Four for the third time in four years, eighth-seeded Kentucky had to defeat college basketball's only unbeaten team, the most feared No. 4 seed in the tournament and the regular season champs of the nation's toughest conference."

May I add that we beat 3, countem 3 - of last year's Final Four? From UNarguably, the toughest region in history? (me despise the nsee a a!)

Get ready ajs!
We're comin to git yew!!!!!!!!!

Exactly what my husband said when we were watching.
We just got back from an all weekend basketball tournament for my ds's travel team, that my husband coaches. In between games we watched games. I woke up thinking about basketball plays this morning.

Yeah.. you know what's been going through my head for at least 48 hours .. singsongy chants 'Take that ball away.. take that ball away!"

And my FIRST thought upon waking was "You know, we've gotta teach the boys hand singles next year. They couldn't hear each other when they called the creeper because the other teams bench was shouting DEFENCE so loud."

I mean where have all my other thoughts gone? The ones about other stuff?

Guys, ajs - no matter what, isn't this week just great?
It is turning into a week-long "savor" - I hope everyone could feel this at least once, you know?

It's a sense of being free to enjoy - either way - how the kiddie Cats do...after disappointing, then vastly exceeding expectations, not burden of expectation to win it all...I am high as a kite this week. It's fantastic. 4 more days to enjoy, & who know? maybe more...

Agreed, jj.

It truly is an amazing time!

I've been fortunate to have my fav football team in the Super Bowl this year. Though they lost, it was such a thrill! We waited 15 years!

Now, my favorite college b'ballers (who started the season 16-0 by the way) are in the Final Freaking Four for the first time since 2000!!!

And...AND...they are the final Big 10 team left!

God, Country, Family, Friends, Badger Sports, the Big Ten.

I'm so stoked today I asked a client who is in WA state to cheer for us Saturday!

You can't see/hear the games aj's? Well, Gators won by 50 and the final was cancelled because they dominated so much there isn't a need for further debate. They were crowned victorious. No, you need not check. Really. Don't.

Well...that's how the night started until our group took turns exhausting each other's phone batteries using the NCAA app.

Then one of the groomsmen (God Bless you, Eric) used one of the phones to pull a WIFI connection from where-the-hell-ever and stream it through his laptop.

Results here:

Yes, that's a wedding going on in front of me.

#OnWisconsin

What sucks is I could never at any one time really watch the game to determine where we went wrong, what with "Soul Sister" and "Celebration" being played and all.

Sheesh. Some people's priorities.

ajs - It could have been anyone's game. You got nothing, and I mean nothing to hang your head about.
That game was a classic, and do we ever know what it's like to lose that way.

Aaron Harrison. Freshman. 3 game-winning shots in a row. Toughest Region in history.
Uncanny repeat - the kid from Wisconsin could not have defended better (Aaron's 6'6"! )

Too much. My nerves are shot.

My nephew who lives in Fort Worth was there.

I blame him for Bucky's loss.

Agreed, jj - that kid can hit that particular shot well. What did that make it, 3 in a row?

Bucky's all good. Boys are back to gearing up for finals and graduation.

Prouder than heck of them all.

Thanks meta!
Proud of my kiddie Cats!
My buds were great - 3 of them, coming out in a wicked rainstorm, to hoot and holler with me, just love those guys.
Next season, I think we'll play A&M at College Station, and for sure there will be a party bus, we are definitely going.

You can mark this down too - we will be back.
