I'm fine with it if the money trickles down to the players and not just the University, but since it doesn't its just more of the hypocrisy of "amateur" sports.

Having universities and what amounts to our 2nd league sports tied together is just dumb as hell.

Craziest upsets you picked for your March Madness bracket?

Me:
#12 Winthrop over #5 Villanova
#11 Drake over #6 USC
Picked two of the #10 seeds to win in first round.
#6 BYU over #3 Texas in 2nd round.

Otherwise nothing more dramatic than a 3 over a 2, or 2 over a 1.

14 Morehead St -- sweet 16 team
13 NC-Greensboro

Then I have 3 1 seeds and Cade in the Final Four so I went pretty chalk really.

But I only really watched Gonzaga and Baylor this year so I was really just guessing.

People comparing Cade Cunningham to Lonzo Ball and Ben Simmons just proves that people base their player comps on physical similarities.

Is Oral Roberts the best #15 seed of all-time?

Certainly they must at the very least be in the running, but I'm looking for someone who knows tournament history better than me.

Made the Sweet 16---beating a #2 seed [obviously] and a #7 seed (by 3 pts each)---and then came a missed 3pter at the buzzer [and let's face it: that was as good a look as they could have hoped for in the circumstance; and that guy Abmas probably makes that AT LEAST 3/8 of the time] away from beating a #3 seed to go to the Elite 8.

Clearly underrated at #15, at any rate.

That Baylor-UConn game might have been the best women's college game I've ever seen. Incredible game. So much talent on both sides.

Won't lie, thought Baylor had em. Was working and watching at the same time, looked up and UConn is starting up a 19-0 run. Little fortunate the missed FTs didn't cost them.

UConn missed a bunch of layups too after that run that almost cost them. But incredible game and a great example of why I never understand why this board hates the women's game so much. Yeah they play below the rim but that was great basketball by both teams and incredibly entertaining.

Speaking of the women's game, saw part of the Gamecocks brutal win against Texas. They held the #6 team in the nation to 23% shooting. And they got a bit nasty about it at times.
Statistics are like bikinis. What they reveal is suggestive, but what they conceal is vital.

I am having the most bizarre internet experience right now on our laptop; wondering if anyone more savvy than me knows what to make of this:

I can open and view [and post replies, as I am here] in any forum/thread/article on RealGM........but I cannot open ANY other site. I've tried NBC News, Gmail, bball-ref, among several other utterly random others; I always get the "This site can't be reached" message telling me that the site's IP address could not be found (and suggesting network diagnostics).

It's the typical message that pops up any time the internet goes out.......except here I am still posting on an internet forum. NOTHING else works, though.

Zags play no close games all year, get into a nailbiter in the Final Four and Suggs shows he is ready for the moment. Still my favorite guy in this draft class. If some team takes Mobley over him they will regret it for a decade.

Yeah, still have Cade first this draft but Suggs is my 2nd guy as well. What a finish, audibly yelled at that ending, and as much a bummer it is for fans of the losing team, as a neutral fan just exciting.

Edit: Also his fit next to SGA if its OKC is darn near perfect to me and thats another thing.

Suggs is one of the rare prospects where you just have to watch him play for a few minutes to see he's special. Threading the needle on that pass after the block was just absurd. And that game winner had 2016 curry OKC vibes.

I love that he defends his tail off and defers to lower ceiling teammates Kispert and Timme offensively realizing that they are special offensive players in college. Doesn't act like the best recruit in program history at all or have any sense of entitlement.

I think he should be the first pick in the draft though I realize he won't be. This is the kind of player/guy who can turn an entire organization around. If the Wolves for instance hold on to their pick, they absolutely have to draft this guy. They don't just need talent, they need a leader and a culture setter. I'm convinced he is that guy.
