Absolutely LOVE March Madness!!!! For me it's the only thing that can equal football. Overall, football is better for the whole season, but March Madness is as exciting as it gets!!! I'm not happy about my Rebels seed, but it doesn't take away from the excitement. Counting down the hours till Wednesday. Hey, maybe UNLV will upset the Jayhawks in Rnd 2!! Haha

heh heh did you see the special they had on HBO? It was pretty good. Tarkanian would've had a dynasty in the 80s and 90s if he didn't keep fighting the NCAA. A lot of the suspensions and fines were BS.

I agree that our chances are slim, but I think we have a better chance than people are thinking. Our team is really BUILT for tournaments, and we can take advantage of it. For one, we bring something that no team has seen all year, and that is a Full-Court Press for the entire 40 minutes. And we can do that because our Depth is ridiculous, and Kruger uses the entire bench. Our defense is good enough to keep us in games, even when the shots aren't falling. Our defense also causes A LOT of turnovers, which can get our offense going. And if we start hitting from 3 point land, we can and will beat any team in the country. We just gotta come with our A game. I will not argue with you picking Kansas, it is the smart pick. I bleed Rebel red, and have been to every home game, front row in "Kruger's Corner" for the last 3 years, and simply, I am seeing Red.... Rebel red.... :D

Even if he is 50% and plays 5 minutes, he is that good where he will help.

And I really don't think anyone cares what his dad wants, he's a big boy, he's under scholarship, he will be playing if at all possible.

My day started 1-3, ended up 12-4, respectable. Not great but respectable.

Side note. I don't like that they have taken NBA announcers (Reggie Miller) to call and analyze these games. They have no clue about college basketball, and no clue about the rules in college. They know nothing about the teams they are calling.

I went 13-3, missed out on Louisville, MSU and Mizzou.

Still got all 4 Final Four picks, and 6/8 Elite 8 picks.

Oh, and i love Gus Johnson, i wish he was annoucing the UNC game, best announcer by far in all sports. Why does it seem he always gets the close games??

MSU is the only team I had going to the elite 8 that I lost. It was a risky pick but they always show up tourny time, just a little to late this time.

And because Gus Johnson is awesome, so that is the reason, he gets the close games because of how awesome he is love listening to him.

Whoever did the morehead st game, forget his name, he has an awesome call "Ohhhhhhhhhhhh ONIONS!!!!"

Duke played great today. Kyrie was limited, but definitely looked like he can help us down the stretch when we really need him.

I thought MSU was going to make another deep run, they seem to always play well in the NCAA tournament.

I wish Gus Johnson was doing the UNC game, he did one early in the year, so awesome.

Dook played good, but it's Hampton, win and advance and have no injuries. As for Kyrie, he looked a little bit tenative early, he will help for sure.

Hopefully UNC isn't in a close game, i don't know how may close games i can take. We've had so many.

They were a super popular darkhorse, by myself included, until they lost Jennings.

When you play the style they do (while great for the Tourny) and you lose a
starter who is a top 3 player on your team and handles the ball as often as he
did, you're gonna be in trouble.

I think he will, he is like a picture perfect NBA prospect.

Everyone knows his offensive ability but they dont pay attention to little things
like his driving ability or more importantly his off the ball movement. He also plays
defense unlike so many of the one n done guys.

I hope him and Irving stay in college one more year, but sadly I see both them
heading out.

If he goes to the NBA this year, I hope the Cavs get him, I think he'd help them a bunch.

As for Irving.....before he was going to play in the Tourney, I had some confidence that he would stay one more year due to his injury, and him only playing a couple of games. However, now that he is in the tourney, and looks like he might have a huge impact, I can definitely see him going pro unfortunately. I hope not....but he is just so good, he probably will.

I thought him and Bill Self were really good about keeping guys at least a second
year for the most part. I agree that Irving will probably go though.

As for the Cavs, two lotto picks that should be high, get Knight/Irving/Barnes

Nope. Coach K usually gets all 4 years out of his players. Last player to leave early was Gerald Henderson after 3 years.

I hope Kyrie stays, I really do, but he is just so good, I don't know if Coach K can persuade him to stay at least 2, if not 3-4 years. I hope he wants a full education before the NBA. :D

Yeah, I'm not sure how to read his desire to play in the tourney. Does he just
really like the college game experience n enjoy playing (much like Hansbrough did)
or is it because he knows this will be his only March Madness??

I'll give Coach K slight credit though, he is like a mind ninja with his guys.

Ahhh, I wish we could get either of those players, but we won't have high enough draft pick :(

We really need a big man, that will assert himself. But this draft class is weak on big men, like usual.

There is liken no centers in this draft, maybe the kid from Oakland?

But there are a few 4's out there that will be around for Denvers pick, nothing
spectacular but definitely solid players.

Ya we did get a ton of draft picks, and wouldn't mind seeing us try and move in to a lottery pick. I mean sullinger or Leonard would be a huge addition in just a physicality stand point, we saw this weekend we were physically outmatched by Howard and LBJ, they are the best in the league but other than K-Mart we aren't the most physical team.

I really have no idea. There are no big centers that I can think of that would be a good first round choice.

My ideal want is for us to get a big C that can play good minutes and do well, and move Nene to PF. Nene would be a dominate PF, but man, he just won't assert himself to his fullest potential to be a dominate C.

Center though, definitely the hardest find in the NBA, no question asked, no gonna change anytime soon either.

But if we can get a great PF, I guess I can live with Nene at C, I just wish he would assert himself more in the paint, and really try to take the game into his own hands when he has a good match-up. As our announcers say, Nene is one of the best 1st quarter players in the game, but he disappears after that.

Ya I think we should stick with what we've got at center for now we have mozzy Kouf as Nene. I want to target a big time 4 someone physical that can help us on the glass and in the toughness department

That was when Melo was still here, and that was discredited.

He was unhappy Melo was getting all the attention (his contract), whereas Nene's expiring contract wasn't even being mentioned.

He wants to stay here, he has made it clear. He has played here his entire career, and his wife is from Colorado as well.

I'd really be shocked if we didn't keep him.

Yeah that isn't fair at all.

There was only 3 games of teams who played on Saturday to fill the Thursday night games.

Friday games consist of 2 teams who played Saturday, but they both play teams who played on Sunday.

So I guess it was a choice between Zona/Duke, Marquette/UNC , and VCU/FSU to see who would get one less day off.

Because it would have been unfair to make Ohio State play on 3 days rest and Kentucky 4. Well I guess now it's OSU 4 and UK 5.

Either way poor planning.

Broncoholic JS
03-21-2011, 05:05 PM
For those crying over a team having an "easy road to a championship". I have a few things to remind you of. Everyone who is playing right now deserves it. They have either won conferences or enough games to play for the right to a National Championship. There is no "easy road" for anyone. Weather you are a 16 or a 1 seed, you have to go through some tough competition. Quit saying that someone had an easy road to a title. You forget they had to play an entire season before the March Madness started.

Therefore, Duke did not have an easy road last year.

This years champion will have deserved it and traveled a tough road to get there.

Potentially a run of LIU, Washington, Marquette, Ohio State, UConn or Arizona, and Kansas.

According to his logic, no he can't. It will be a fluke. They had to play Marquette and AZ/Uconn. You have to play #1 or #2 seeds to actually have won anything.

1. Lets not act like Duke didnt have a relatively easy road last year.

2. Lets not act like Butler is a bad team either.

3. Don't discredit Dukes win last year, it was as legit as any other Championship.

4. IF UNC wins this year, it will be a quite tough run IMO (sure their Sweet 16
matchup is only iffy but Washington in the Round of 32 was no cake walk).

5. Lets just mourn my bracket, since I changed it from UNC beating Duke in the Final
Four and beating Kansas in the Championship game to Duke beating UNC then KU
like 40 minutes before the first game. :hurt:

Oh yeah, Dook avoids Kansas and Kentucky last year, top seeds and gets cinderalla Butler. Never said they suck, but an easier game then Kentucky or Kansas or other top teams.

So what, not Roy's problem alot of players want to come to UNC.

And Butler won't make the title game this year, Kansas will beat them or Florida.

And ROFL, not close, if everyone comes back, UNC will destroy Dook and win the NCAA title next year, be real. Kyrie is a top 3 pick, he's as good as gone.

See your lack of knowledge is shining, the number 1 player in the country has been a star every year since the one and done rule was instituted. You have no idea if Kyrie is gone. You won't destroy us Irving>Marshall and whose your SG doesn't matter you can't guard Rivers lol

I give Irving a 45% chance of coming back after his tourney run.

I give Barnes a 5% chance of coming back to UNC.

If both return, Marshall + Barnes vs Irving + Rivers would be awesome..

I never said we would. I had us going to the Sweet 16 and losing to Syracuse. I think we're a year away from winning the title.

Everything from here on out is gravy.

Ever since Kyrie "Michael Jordan" came back everyone said Dook will in it all. We weren't supposed to go deep whhile everyone had Dook going far. It's ok, Dook will get a reality check next year without Irving, Smith, and Singler, and still nothing inside.

Weird. Remember in chat last night, when you said how fortunate you were to be playing #11 seed Marquette rather than #3 Syracuse. Of course you don't, because now Marquette is an amazing team.

No, it's not your problem. But Duke actually has academic standards, so we can't have the players. Yet we still produce great teams and get National Championships.

Butler is more likely to win it than UNC.

Yes, i was, and if we win, we'll probably have to play the best team in college basketball, Ohio State in the Elite 8.

Then if we win that, we'll have to face Arizona or UConn who is red hot. Then Kansas most likely.

Only reason is they're in an easy bracket. It's ok, this team has surpassed my expectations already.

East coast bias knows nothing about Arizona. The people who followed the Cats were not that surprised with that game. When I say that I mean it because everyone was a little surprised the way they came out and dominated in the second half.

I actually give Barnes a great chance to come back unless we win it all which i don't think happens. He's said he wants to get his degree, i think he has a by far better chance then coming back then Irving does. If Barnes comes back, Dook has no one to stop him.

Actually, word has it Barnes will come back unless UNC wins the title. I read an article on ESPN, said Barnes comes back if UNC doesn't win it all and Mason along with Irving are gone.

Irving is better than Marshall in pretty much every category, Barnes isnt even close to the best player in the country hes not even the best player in the conference, ya cuz your unstoppable duo lost to duke twice, also curry us a better scorer than Hairiston.

Irving is better overall but Marshall has the best court vision in all of college basketball and is a better PASSER, not player.

I said if he comes back next year he's the best player in college basketball. We had two freshman, two sophomores, and a junior who's played one full-season. Dook had more experience.
