Just something to get you ready.
That was awesome. Thanks for sharing.
Utes made $22k per year ($265k/12) for the next 5 years with USC winning last night
Just another reason to live vicariously through the Ducks, Cats, Bruins and Trojans over the next few days (if you can stomach it).
I picked all 12's over 5's this year.
Because...well, why not.
The perfect anti-bracket.
Thousands of perfect entries still remain in the Yahoo Sports Tourney Pick’Em contest after a first day that saw 14 of the 16 games won by the lower seed.
But only one entry stands alone as being uniquely terrible.
Of all the entries that picked results for all 63 games, only one bracket went 0-for-16 on Thursday. That would be “Bracket McBracketface,” a user who adopted a bold and chaotic strategy that included picking all four No. 16 seeds to win their first-round games.
Just watched the Wisconsin/Nova and Gonzaga/NW games today. I am envious of those programs -- even of North Dakota. Athleticism. BB IQ. Terrifically played games. Will be really interesting to see what Collins does with Northwestern going forward.

Worst tournament ever?
1. No Utah
2. No memorable upsets
3. No game-winning buzzer beaters
4. No overtime games
5. Multiple games marred by horrible late calls
6. Only one true upset in the first round (Middle Tennessee State)
7. Closest thing to a Cinderella (Xavier) was a 2-seed just a year ago
8. Duke gone early
9. UNC, Gonzaga, and Oregon survive games they could/should have lost
10. Oregon, UCLA, and Zona all in the sweet 16
Starting with the championship game last year, sports has given us its best year of drama ever. I think we are now in for a year of famine.
On the other hand, there is nothing that restores your faith in mankind quite like Duke going out early.
BTW, on Dan Patrick this am they were saying that Duke's Achilles heel all year has been its guard play. I haven't watch Duke much, but last night Frank Jackson seemed pretty good, but nothing like the other freshman guards who are going in the draft.
After Villanova, Louisville, and Duke, how many of your Final Fours do you have left?
Me: THEM, Arizona, and Kansas.
As far as Kuzma goes, he said that it wouldn't help Kuzma to come back to Utah at all. He is a second round player, this year or next. He said that he'd enter the draft, see what he is told and then decide if what he hears is to his liking or if he'd rather play college ball another year.
Here we go!
Michigan vs Oregon. Hail to the victors. What's bad for Oregon is good for Utah. Plus, who doesn't want to see Brooks' sad face tonight?
WVU vs Gonzaga. Go Huggy. Again, what's bad for Gonzaga is good for Utah. Plus, I am sick of Gonzaga blowing it every year against BYU.
Purdue vs Kansas. Biggie. Purdue Pete. Go 'makers.
Xavier vs Arizona. I question the heart of any Ute fan who can root for Arizona. X-men make lousy movies and good basketball.
So, Arizona vs Gonzaga. One coach gets to shed his "can't get to the final four" image.
If there are going to be 60 fouls called in a game, WVU is not going to win. Pressing teams need a bit of leeway.
Meanwhile, Oregon once again lets a lesser team hang but still pulls it out.

Miller getting brutalized on twitter for misusing Markenen all game and esp. Down the stretch. All least he got to go against better players in practice than if he had come here. So there is that.
I'm with you Sancho. I can't believe they'll let Miller go - four Sweet 16s out of the last five. No question last night was a huge collapse. I couldn't believe Trier was allowed to dribble away clock and then just jack a shot on three of their last four possessions. Markannen did not touch the ball on any of them - even out of the timeout when they went to Krstic. Horrible coaching or seemingly no coaching down the stretch.
