    I need to remember to be careful about saying other teams sucked during the tournament so that when I'm courtside in a wheelchair for Tech's first tournament game in 87 years, I can lose with grace.

    Re: Yahoo! Tourney Pick'em

    Couple of footnotes to some previous discussions about coaching.

    Syracuse beats Michigan State. The were up by 3 with 8 seconds left. The announcers said they had asked Boeheim about that specific situation before the game. He unequivocally said I ALWAYS foul. He did it twice in the last 8 seconds. I personally consider Boeheim to be one of the two best coaches in the game; maybe we can incorporate that strategy in the future?

    Nevada beats Cincinnati, erasing a 22 point deficit in the last 11 minutes of the game. What sparked the change in a 5 man rotation? Eric Musselman went bat-shit crazy and drew a technical after a questionable call against his team. He showed up in the winning locker room shirtless and leading the cheers. Passion matters.

    I agree. I watched that Syracuse-MSU game, and it was a very good game. Jim Boeheim is one of the very best there is. The question posed to him was, "if you have a 3 point lead with 5 seconds left, and the other team gets the ball, what do you do? Do you foul 'em and put 'em on the line shooting 2, or do you make 'em drive the length of the court and let 'em shoot a possible 3?"

    Without hesitation, Boeheim said "I ALWAYS foul 'em".

    Lo and behold, with 8 seconds left in the Syracuse-MSU game, Boeheim was in this exact position, and did exactly what he said he always does: he fouled 'em. And MSU could never catch up.

    I have Michigan winning it all. But the rest of my FF bracket is ruined. I had Kentucky, West Virginia, and Duke all making it. Meeeeechigan is my last pick standing.

    I wanted so bad to put a so-called "mid-major" in the FF, but couldn't decide on which one. Loyola-Chicago? Who knew?

    Love me some Jay Wright and his offense

    I picked Michigan to win it all, but now I'm leaning toward Nova on Monday. The 'Cats are playing really well and are on a roll.

    Still, the reason I picked Michigan was their team defense. So....

    The B10 sux so bad.

    I regret my White State-T Bulldog dogtag is coming in second tonight.

    (I'm sorry, Coach Maxie Lambright, for this embarrassing performance by me in the Pick'em competition.)

    Congratulations to Sportdawg.

    Villanova is simply the most complete team out there. Congrats to the Wildcats on their NC.

    Had to go ahead and freeze frame it while it looked good! (The brackets had all been updated, so, hey...Just go back to my post #25.)

    We’re all good.

    Another fun exercise!

    PS-B10 still sux!
