    I confess, I haven't watched a college basketball game the entire season, but I always watch March madness. I'm what you would call, a fake college basketball fan. Nevertheless, let's get it on!

    I'm right there with you DD! Have watched very little this season. With that said, I'm going to hop on that Gonzaga wagon! Go Zags

    DD I may be mistaken, but the teams look correct in these brackets but I believe the West and Midwest labels are possibly in the wrong spots??

    You're right, I think this is the way it should look. You might have to zoom in to see the teams, I can't seem to find a bracket that's up close.

    I don't know if this is what you are looking for, but it might help. All central time. https://www.al.com/sports/2023/03/ncaa-tournament-2023-first-round-pairings-full-bracket.html

    Clark Kellogg picked Gonzaga to win it all this year, Seth Davis picked Alabama, and Jay Wright picked Marquette. Why don't they ever let Greg Gumbel make a pick? It's not fair!

    Friday 9:55pm - #13seed Kent State vs #4 Indiana should be a good one for an upset.

    Unbelievable game, Furman kept hanging around and then this, here's the ending in case anyone missed it.

    Damn, I'm thinkinging and Hoping tomorrow Kent State vs Indiana. It actually looks good for Kent to pull this off. Fingers crossed............See you tommorow night (10pm)

  • DarinDarin Posts: 6,241 ✭✭✭✭✭

    So I wonder if Arizona getting beat in the first round has shut up Bill Walton at all? Hey Bill your second place team in the ‘conference of champions’ just got beat by an Ivy League team. Princeton over Arizona.
    Bill the bozo also was spouting off about Washington state deserving an at large bid.
    I enjoyed watching ucla and Arizona play late night ( for me) games this year but how walton holds down a job as color commentator is beyond me.

    Congrats to Arkansas- it is their first win against Illinois in six games.

    Penn State is playing well

    Congrats to Princeton- that was a huge win.

    Don't have cable or satellite, we don't watch much TV, just college football, NFL, March madness and the occasional cop show. Oh yeah, and the Olympics.

    Bill Self not committing to getting our freshman big man Udeh decent minutes from the start of the season really cost KU today.
    So now when we desperately needed a big to compete for boards he wasn’t there because Self didn’t develop him during the season.
    Critical strategic mistake.

    Case in point… ark. 15 offensive boards, Ku 7.
