I thought it was a sad day when they fired him. Hindsight is a cruel way to look at it.

Cav’s lost their top 2 players to injury in the ACC tourney if I’m not mistaken?

Not surprising. There is no documented history of anyone ever filling out a perfect bracket. I think I read that last year, in the millions in ESPNs bracket contest, only 18 even picked a perfect Sweet 16.

Warren Buffett used to offer ONE BILLION dollars for anyone that picked out a perfect bracket. He never had to pay. The number or perfect brackets will continue to drop.... eventually to zero.

Warren Buffet told all of his employees this year if anyone had a perfect Sweet 16 they would get $1Million for life... doubt he'll have to pay

No. I'm not allowed to pick brackets after my time spent working for the NCAA as Interim President.

Tough loss for UofH. Buzzer beater gets them. Didn't anyone watch Duke v. Kentucky when Laettner hit the game winner......put a man over the ball!!!! Contest the in-bounds.

Yep, that was a tough one for sure. I'm sure Davis is feeling pretty low for missing his last two free throws too. In his defense they wouldn't have been where they were if he hadn't hit most of them up to that point.

Congrats on a hell of a season coogs!

When Michigan missed at the end and then fouled Houston with 4 seconds to go, I got pizzed, turned off the tv and went to bed.

What a surprise when I woke up this morning!

it helps that we are shooting 50%, and hitting our threes. I told my buddies before the game we can match up with UNC, and if we start hitting our 3's we usually win.

We are so streaky it's either on or ice cold.

It's because good D is forcing 40ft jumpers...and they are changing shots because of the Aggie length that has resulted in 7 blocks so far.
