Sweet 16 matchups:

Michigan St. over N. Iowa. Close. No Kailin Lucas
makes it tight.

Tennessee over Ohio St.. Too much depth. Can't let Evan
Turner run amock, however.

Syracuse over Butler. Even without Onauku ( sp.?), I think.

Kentucky over Cornell. Kentucky has 1st two guys to go in NBA draft and maybe another lottery pick. Calipari loses this one and they ought to run him out of town.

WVU over Washington. Down to the wire. Hopefully Eers can do it again.

Duke over Purdue. If they can contain Jajuan Johnson.
WVU couldn't.

St. Mary's over Baylor. Only big man better than that big Arab is Cousins. Maybe.

WVU has no chance against Kentucky.

Kentucky has 7 McDonald's All-Americans.
Cousins is no.1 pick in NBA draft this year.
Wall is no.2 pick.
Patterson is lottery pick.

Our center is a 6'7 nobody. Cousins is 6'11 and the best big man in the nation.
Patterson is 2 inches taller than our center.

Wall is 6'4 and the best player in the country.
Our pg is 6' and a nobody.

Kentucky is taller, faster, quicker, better shooters, 12 deep.

If Huggins had that team he would never lose a game.
Kentucky has more talent than some NBA teams.

You'll get no pissing match from me.
I'm just worried about Washington right now.

It would take a miracle for WVU to beat Kentucky.

Mich State over UNI... but then again I didn't think N Iowa would get out of the first round, so hard to sleep on them. If the 3-ball is falling, watch out! But as we see so often, live by the 3, die by the 3.

Tenn over OSU. This is a tough pick, but Tenn is better than they have shown all year. I'm hoping they can keep stepping up now.

Syr over Butler. I thought the orange would be the first #1 to fall, but they have looked like they are supposed to. I think Butler will give them a game, though.

KSU over Xav.

UK over Cornell.

WVU over Wash.

Duke over purdue

Baylor over SMC

I was merely commenting on your continual lamentations of assumed victimhood.

You brought the other board up my friend ... why do so if you didn't want to discuss it, unless it was stirring the pot so you could claim to be victimized. Again.

Oh, wait ... that's exactly what you did.

7 out of 8... not bad for us there buddy! I sure do wish I had stuck to my theory on the Orange falling early, though!

For this next round, I'm gonna take a little chance...

So I'm going:

Tenn over MSU

Butler over KSU (there's my "chance" I say I'm taking)

UK over WVU (but I am gonna call it and say if UK doesn't get any more solid on their free throws that WVU will pull it out)

Duke over Baylor.

Oh... and I also realized we have been ignoring the women's tourney... so I'm gonna go on a limb and say Uconn, UConn, UCONN! lol

Tenn over Mich. St.
Kansas St. over Butler
UK over WVU. No Trucky, no winneee.
Baylor over Duke. My shakiest pick.

WTH happened to St. Mary's? The team and their big
man looked scared to death.

Don't you own a mirror?

You trolled your own thread into a "WOE IS HONDO ... BANNED BECAUSE OF BEING AN ANGEL" symposium.

WV dies in this round.

My sheet still has Tennessee, Michigan State, Kentucky, and Duke.

My final 4 was Kentucky vs Duke and Tennessee vs Syracuse, with Kentucky beating Syracuse in the final.

I would love to see somebody knock UK on their ass
but I doubt that will happen.

Cousins, Wall & Patterson will go in the first 7 NBA picks.
Cousins and Wall one and two.

WVU has nobody to guard Cousins or Patterson and Orton for that matter.

The only team with an outside chance to beat them will be Tennessee but that's a stretch.

UK by 30 over WVU.
If WVU wins Huggy Bear is coach of the year and they ought to run Cal out of town.

1 - You lament the discussion can't be about basketball.

2 - I point out that this is simply because you insist upon turning the thread into a "WOE IS HONDO" thread.

3 - I return the topic to basketball.

4 - You launch an ad hominem attack.

These threads are so predictable.

dub, you know nothing about basketball other than
bragging that the most loaded team in years is gonna win. DUH!

All you've done is trash a fine thread again.

I am trying to be civil to you but you are such a vile lowlife that's it's hard for me to do, bro.

At one time I used to think that you had some redeeming qualities.
I'm trying to remember what they were.

You're not honest, honorable, sincere, forgiving, Christian.
All you do is hate.
I pity you, brother.

Also, you can judge a person by their friends.
Look at your friends:putrid haters like punter and ugo,
blowhards like slide rule and Dawg, really slow guys like
Johnny and Cuejoey.

Yeah, you've got quite a following.

You must be very proud.

Well, you got it! And even though I missed the pick, I called it about the free throws. I was out at the poolhall last night, and some asked me what my pick was, I told them UK unless they shot under 65% ft's. They were only 55.2% for that game. Pathetic, and ya can't win big games that way. But congrats to WVU, they played great. The defense was solid, and forced UK to fire up all those 3's they missed.

And I got Butler over KSU right.

Also, I do gotta give it to dub, he has been calling a strong run from Tennessee since the beginning. It's a tough day for folks in the SEC states. We always want the SEC to get championships... but nobody likes rooting for Tenn... I don't think people in Tenn even like rooting for them /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/wink.gif

The inability to make the 3 has been their Achilles heel all year long.

Yesterday it cost them.

Granted had they hit their 3's it woulda been no contest. But those are always hit or miss... live by or die by in basketball if that's part of your game. But free throws... those should be drilled drilled drilled in practice, and nearly as second nature as dribbling the ball. They are just like they sound... "free"... free uncontested points for the team. And the way a good team can counteract it's cold shooting. Granted, it ALL "matters", but IMO the FT's were the difference in the game.

It didn't hurt their cause that WVa was able to drill so many 3 pointers either.
I have made it clear, being a Carolina boy, that I have no love for KY, although I do grudgingly give them respect.
Now, I find myself having to pull for Duke, which also goes against all my natural instincts! I have to support the ACC, just as you pull for the SEC.
Next weekend should be interesting.

Yeah, and you know I think I've been a little unfair in my analysis. I stand by what I've said about UK's mess ups... but WV played great. They did win the game. I think I've kinda sounded like I'm saying UK lost it... but no, WV WON it and earned their final four trip.
