    Think it might be a wild and wacky tournament this year with Louisville sitting this one out
    and Arizona, Duke and Kentucky all not in the top 10 as of this weekend.


    Who's ready for some college basketball?

    The tournament will likely save what has otherwise been a blah boring regular season. No great teams so it should be wide open

    I'm looking forward to watching Obama fill out his brackets. Just kidding. Basketball sucks.

    I'm an NHL fan. Go Rangers!!

    I can't recall the last time I watched so little college ball. But that's not stopping me from taking a mental health day off on Friday to watch all day.

    My season was ruined when my small school lost in their conference championship on Wednesday:depressed:
    But I will still burn a vacation day with some friends watching the games on Friday afternoon :burp:
    Nothing in sports is quite like the long weekend of the first/second round when it goes from 64 to 16 teams in 4 days.

    Can't wait for MSU to win it all. Michigan is making a nice run in the big ten tourney hopefully they can both make it deep like last year.

    Love the Tournament. The first two rounds is pretty much the best four days in all of sports.

    Yeah, I especially like to take the opening Thursday and Friday off and spend the day home alone drinking and eating a disgusting amount of wings, etc.

    Luckily, I start a new job a week from Monday and have the entire week off. I hope my hangover doesn't carry over into the new job.
