Discuss college hoops right here. Hopefully Temple can show the country how underrated they really are, and hopefully Villanova can avoid choking yet again. Duke seems to be everyone's #1 for the time being with Kyle Singler returning for another season.

Don't really care who wins, as long as it's not Duke again. Last year was so painful, especially after they got my hopes up at the very end of the final game.

Would love to see my Owls win but they have a tendency to either go far or lose the first game.

Owls beat #10 Georgetown. Nice win boys. Time to crawl our way into the top 5.

Don't you guys feel the success of the NCAA tournament has made the regular season less interesting? I'm not even motivated to watch a game until March.

Now if only the conference champion made it into the "big dance", then it might make regular season games more interesting/watchable. Since half the teams in the conference make it into the tournament anyway, who cares?

College football is just the opposite, every weekend is critical and can make/break your chance at winning a national championship.

it"s different for a lot of people though. For example, I go to a college that is ranked top 25 in basketball, so naturally I root for them every game since they have a legit shto at the title. A lot of alumni root for their alma mater every game as well. Although the nation as a whole doesn't usually start caring about college hoops until March. But there's no sports event that's better than March Madness.

Temple loses in a nail-biter to Nova. Nova vs. Temple, hmmm reminds me of 12th grade when I was trying to decide on a college.

I've decided just to root against the Big Least in the NCAA tourney. It's a disgrace that they got 11 teams in the tournament while the likes of Alabama, Virginia Tech, and Colorado have to stay home. Think the selection committee wasn't rigged in favor of the Little 10 and the Big Least and against the ACC, SEC, and Big XII? Have another drink if you answered no.

As of this typing three Big Least teams have been sent to the showers (Louisville, St. John's and mighty Villanova) while Georgetown is losing by 20 in the second half to unheralded Virginia Cannabis ( who also didn't really deserve a bid). Looks like it's four down and seven more to go.

Looks like the Big "Least" is gonna win it all. I hope Brad Stevens knows how to perform the Heimlich Manuever, cause his team choked pretty bad tonight.

And I would like to point out that the same VCU that didn't deserve a trip to the tourney made it to the Final Four

This is definitely proclaiming lots for that mentor might tried more than a few pressure-packed computer games, maybe even including the last two AFC titles.

Nailed all four of the Final Four picks this year. Now I just need a UK win over Kansas in the championship game and my bracket won't look so ugly anymore.
