  • ... can this get us a commissioned podcast like the fantasy football league?

    Can the commission be basketball related?

    I’d love to hear Bald Move’s take on Hoosiers.

    I like that idea but that would be up to @Jim and @A_Ron_Hubbard and would require a buyin if they are game. 
  • Doubtful it would have a commissioned prize but I’m in for bragging right.

  • I’m thinking my Jayhawks are probably going to be an early exit this year for sure

    That was such an ugly W. 

    Apparently they are suing 3 former adidas people for cost of legal fees and the cost of scholarships for 2 ineligible players

    My buddies went up for the next beer round and came back saying they bumped into Master P. And I was like pfffft na-nah na-nah.

    yeah they had everyone there to taste that unfortunate loss:
    Hakeem
    Elvin Hayes
    Master P
    Warren Moon
    Carl Lewis
    Case Keenum

    I think I'll play as well.

    If Jordan Bone keeps playing like he did when TN blasted KY Saturday my Vols will make a deep tourney run. 

    How many people think Zion will never lace them up for Duke again?  I'm convinced he's already shut it down for the draft and Duke keeps stringing along his injury news and possible return so they will still get a 1 seed.  They'll be out early without him.
  • I think he's done enough in terms of proving his draft status.  There's no reason for Zion to get back on the court other than the fun of playing in the tournaments.

    No argument there, I'm just wondering when that news breaks so Duke gets declassified from a 1 seed as they should if he's not playing.  They are a 3 seed at best without him.

    Pretty interesting analysis here - ranks coaches since 2000 on their performance in the Tournament vs expectation (you can sort by performance vs. Ken Pomeroy rating or seed expectations). As a UNC fan I'm happy to see that good ol' Roy is number 1 ... and Coach K is all the way down near 350. Part of that is because Duke is often seeded/rated very high so it's hard to perform to those expectations, but it's not like the Heels aren't usually getting a high ranking either. Duke is tied w/ UNC for the most titles since 2000 (3) - not sure how heavily that weighs into the calculation. Duke definitely has a decent amount of exits at or before the Sweet 16 in more recent history and that has to hurt their standing.

    Top ten is a pretty solid list. And in dead last is poor UVA coach Tony Bennett ... losing to a 16 as a 1 will do that!

    UVA can't score.  I know they are better this year on offense, but you aren't going to win the tourney if you can't score more than 60 points.
  • Brackets are revealed Sunday night, don’t forget to sign up

  • I watched Yale v Harvard earlier today, so I think I know everything I need to know about hoops.  Now I can successfully create a bracket that gets busted by day 3.

    Dammit, you beat me to the joke. I was going to say that I listened to One Shining Podcast this morning so now I know everything there is to know about NCAAB without watching a literal minute this year. Feel free to delete your brackets now and hand me a giant trophy, and a giant tv, and a helicopter.
