    K-State scores 61 tonight after scoring 95 points on Wake on Tuesday.

    Just confirms what I thought on Tuesday, Danny needs to really work on the defense during the off-season.

    Can't believe I picked Marquette. I made my bracket after I watched K-State, a team with a suspect offense, drop 95 points on Wake Forest. Wake Forest and Marquette are basically twin brothers, their teams are so identical. Electric offenses, terrible defenses.

    You rarely get away with having a poor defense during the tournament.

    This was a close game like 5 minutes ago.

    Yeah, and they lost by 20+ points. Gave up over 90 points to an offense that is ranked #152 in kenpom. That is not good. Defense never stops. Offense does.

    This has been a pretty boring first round, the only top 5 seed to lose was Minnosota and everybody picked that upset anyway.

    Yeah.

    I never lost a championship team so early. I should've just been a homer and picked UNC. I knew this Wisconsin game was dangerous, but I thought Nova would pull it out. West Virginia and Nova next, right? WVU looks scary.

    The thing about results like this is that Villanova was considered a safe pick, so most people had them going far. You probably aren't as fucked as you think you are, unless you had them winning the entire thing.

    I'm a Wake Forest fan and I picked UNC.

    Wisconsin will play the winner of UVa/Florida.

    Yes. Their lackluster play during the last 10 games of the season earned them that 11 seed.

    Yeah, they started to turn it around in the Big East Tournament. Thought their win against Butler was a fluke. Guess it wasn't.

    FWIW, Xavier lost their best player for the season before their slump. I had very little faith in them without him.

    Chris Mack is a damn good coach, they're better than Marquette and Seton Hall even though they had a rough ending. Should have been higher than both of those teams.

    That being said, they go as far as Trevor Bluitt allows them too. He hasn't taken the next step in his Soph. year as far as being a go to player. Vanishes in games and has been held nearly scoreless for 1st halfs quite often this year.

    All the games I have seen them vs the Johnnies, they look so damn good this year. What the hell happened? How did a Bo Ryanless squad do this to them?

    So the Madness in March hasn't really been "maddening" except for Villanova being knocked out in the second round. I feel like the first two rounds were highly overshadowed by referee decisions and that's bad for the sport. We've seen a maybe-not-so flagrant foul called in a late and tight game. Today we had ourselves a goaltending that wasn't called. Great showing by Northwestern, though. I was really pulling for them to Morrison Zaga. It was looking like such a great story and then ENTER ZEBRA. They're choking on their whistles.

    Anyways, on to the Sweet 16 match ups we have in store for us.

    Wisconsin hot off the biggest upset of the weekend to face a school just chomping at the possibility of another successful run in March, the Florida Gators. They just smothered Virginia. Not many saw this match up coming, but people also felt that Wisconsin was way too strong of an 8 seed. I think the Gators run comes to an end in this match up and it won't be close. I feel like Wisconsins win over Villanova did more for that group then Floridas crushing of Virginia. We'll soon start hearing the name Frank Kaminsky, again. Wisconsin wins 78-53.

    Gonzaga comes into this game off of a close and controversial win. The most important question of their whole season is this; are they MENTALLY strong enough to do this? Are they that good? I always judge by past accomplishments and I fear for the future of Gonzaga. I fear for their future, because if they thought Northwestern trying to fit into a glass slipper was tough, imagine what it's going to be like having to go up against the baddest team in March right now, West Virginia. West Virginia may be the biggest wildcard left and I think they're Final 4 potential. I think it's going to be a great game, but at the end I don't think Gonzaga is mentally strong enough for this. West Virginia is serious. I got WVU winning 78-73.

    Xavier is going to dance at the Sweet 16 and this is going to be such a great and underrated game. They will be squaring off against a red hot Arizona team. This match is going to be the Steamboat/Savage game of the Sweet 16 round. I think it goes to OT and I think it goes down to the final shot to win it. I'm bouncing back and forth for who I think is going to win, but I'm going to go with what I had already pushed going further. Arizona. I got them winning in OT 89-87.

    When I was at the deli this morning getting my morning heroes, I started talking with this black dude about March Madness weekend. I told him I got Villanova winning the whole thing against UCLA and he told me he had Duke winning the whole thing. He said "that coach is the best coach in college sports and that Grayson kid is funny." I said "yeah right. I hope we get some upsets, because it's been boring lately. He said "yeah, my Cinderella team is Iona." I said "who?" He said "Iona." So I thought to myself, second guessed if Iona was in it. He started rambling about this great win they had in round 1. I'm thinking no fucking way. I start to analyze him and notice him lift his arm up towards his mouth. In his hand was a brown bag and just peaking out was a fucking Budweiser 40 can. I went "what the fuck?" This whole time I think I'm having a sports convo with a regular dude at 11am in the morning at the bagel store. Instead, I was talking to a fucking drunk, drinking at 11am.

    Fucking Iona.

    Xavier was seeded correctly. Before the NCAA Tournament started, they were 3-7 in their last ten games. 2 of those wins were against (#183 in kenpom) DePaul. That streak started without their best player. Said player isn't coming back.

    BTW, I do think that Xavier is a better team than Seton Hall, Providence and Marquette. Seton Hall, Providence and Marquette just had better resumes than Xavier.

    Also, you don't really need to remind me that Chris Mack is a good coach. Take a closer look where he's spent some of his assistant coaching career at.

    That NCAA Championship for Villanova is looking a little strange, as its now sandwiched in between a ton of Round of 32 exits.

    Shit happens in March.

    I hope Michigan continues their run today. They got a huge game to start the day against Louisville. I'll also be pulling for UNC and UCLA to win their match ups. Hopefully today's games are good.
