    Excuse me sir, we are grown men here. We do not want to hear about how a 9 year old is beating us. I was feeling bad enough about my bracket.

    On a side note I once cruised to the first seed in my church fantasy football league to only get beaten in the finals of the playoffs by my son. He was about 10 or 11 at the time. I was way too confident. I still have to hear about that one at home and at church!

    Hey Bulldog Tom......I thought there was an age limit.....you had to be at least 10 yrs old to play, right? Is that how you remember it too?

    Usually I am willing to overlook a technicality, but in this case........ Really doesn't concern me much anymore as I had Duke as national champions, but the weekend was fun. LOL

    Good grief the ACC was certainly overrated this season! 8 of 9 teams eliminated during the first weekend. I am totally shocked.

    I thought the SEC was vastly over represented in the tournament but they've been solid. Arkansas gave UNC all they wanted yesterday. Florida, Kentucky & South Carolina all made it to the Sweet 16.

    Just curious, I haven't followed basketball since mid-early 2000s, and I was curious what some of our basketball gurus thought, as I answered earlier to Bulldog Tom. I'm more of a religious football fan, but a Tech fan regardless

    Re: Yahoo Bracket Challenge

    Is it possible for a great Women's team to beat a men's college team? Well...yeah, I suppose. Maybe a Dream Team, WNBA all-stars, could have "one of those nights" and beat some weak men's college team. I never say "never" in sports. Is it likely? Nah....

    I did coach a girls' soccer team (U14) and we were so dominant, beating other girls' teams by double-digits, that it was boring so I entered us in a boys' state tournament. We won it. We won the championship game on PKs after the match ended 1-1. My goalkeeper was a special young lady who later played college basketball and she was a superb athlete. She stopped every shot and we won the PK shoot-out 1-0 (each team has 5 shots). The boys' goalkeeper was very good and stopped 4 of our shots. BTW I caught grief from some folks saying we, my team and I, had damaged the psyche of the boys, by them losing to a bunch of girls.

    But, that was 12 & 13 year-olds when boys and girls are much closer in physical/athletic development. By the time people reach age 20 or so, males have distanced themselves from females.

I could see a "dream team" of women's teams being able to beat decent men's teams, I just wasn't sure. Based on my very limited experience, I'd say they could beat anyone, under the right circumstances

    Thanks for the info, I was pretty sure that was the case, but I was curious. And funny story

    The fact the Hogs got a SHUT OUT pitched against them for 3:50 is why they got beat, and the fact they fell behind by 17? to start the game

    And the coaching mismatch was the worse since Bobby Knight vs Dale Brown....

    If it were a TV show or a movie they'd have a great chance. The Snowflakes would line up to see it, too.

    Uh yeah.

    A traveling non-call that gave UNC 2 points and a 3 point lead. Who knows what would've happened had it been called. The circumstances become completely different. Now, who knows if Arkansas would have been able to capitalize.

    UNC shot 25 FT's to 8 for AR, and AR had twice as many fouls.

    I guarantee you there would have a traveling or charge called had the roles been reversed.

    See I love seeing SEC teams get the shaft on the officiating side of things, regardless of sport due to their biased refs

    That said - don't go scoreless in crunch time and don't fall behind by 17

    The non-call foul caused the walk - so technically the Heels should of been shooting FT's

    Kentucky got nearly every call in the Shocker game and they should of went down

    Said thing is - WSt would of not made the tourney if they had not won their tourney due to the name on the jersies
