I didn't see a thread so I thought I would start one.

Things are moving right ahead and the boys are working hard to entertain us.

My favorite game so far was last night's Iowa Loss! I cannot believe there is NO criticism of Iowa coach giving his son Connor a scholarship for SIX years - he offered him his first one while Connor was still in High School. And the Covid portal has kept him on two MORE YEARS.

He is a middling player at best. Of course we still have scholarship son Patrick for another season....and two more McCaffrey sons coming up (one in high school who will no doubt be offered a scholarship during his senior year....and a boy in Jr. High.......).

None of them are really outstanding players. Last night at the end of the game Connor was bawling and moaning because his college career is finally over. My guess is he'll be back next year on his father's coaching staff.

Rant over.

Tonight: Purdue!

Hmmmm.....I guess no one else is interested. That's okay.

I knew Arizona would lose early without a decent point guard. I'm hoping UCLA can work out another magical run down two starters.

Glad I switched over from the Kentucky game to watch fdu/Purdue. Purdue couldn't do anything right. How do you the big 10 player of the year only take one in the last 12 minutes of a one and done game. Last year I was on reddit and there was a comment by a Purdue fan who hated Matt painter. I pointed out they kept Gene keady around for decades and he never got them to the final four. Looks like painter may be another keady. He has underperformed in March.

While I don’t think Purdue was worthy of the 1-seed, FDU has put on two very impressive Tournament performances.

by Anonymousreply 14March 18, 2023 3:29 AM

Yes......Painter saw exactly what FDU was doing in the first quarter and didn't change a damned thing.

So goodbye, Boilermakers! Sad.

Fairleigh Dickinson coach is a weird hyperactive guy with a gorilla face.....I'm not sure if he has a speech impediment or is on something.....

I'm not into basketball at all, but saw the end of the Princeton game in the gym locker room. They were interviewing I guess the lead player and the coach. Princeton is hot! I was so excited for their win. The coach is super hot as well. I'm going to be watching them. The whole team is very cute.

I had Baylor versus ucla in the final. Baylor lost tonight so my atrocious bracket continues to sink further.

I worry UCLA's injury woes will sink them. Too bad because healthy, they have good balance and great defense.

R41 Ahem, did you see what BIG 10 did in the tournament this year? ACC, Big 12 all have more successful post seasons. UCLA will help restore prestige to BIG 10 basketball.

Having said that, I'm not happy being in a league where we have to travel to Rutgers to play FB instead of rivals like WA and Oregon. Better restaurants in Palo Alto than West Lafayette.

I am loving these cute white boys killing it. I have only love for the traditionally majority black powerhouses which is why it is so fun to see these boys go to the top. It's rare, even genetically. Maybe what they are saying is true about gen z having the biggest cocks because of the all the hormones in foods. Maybe that goes for height, too.

Duke out. Kentucky out. Kansas out. North Carolina never made it in.

And there was a wide-spread media comment about this tournament - "all the Blue Bloods are out!!"

Ahem... UCLA w/ 11 national championships. UConn w/ 4 national championships since 1999.

Also, given DL's obsession with plastic surgery, seems like on this thread we should remark on the astonishing facial surgery on that crook Rick Pitino, who has just moved from Iona (let's see if he can stay out of jail) to St. John's (now he can break more laws).

I have a good friend who went to Duke and roots hard for the men’s and women’s teams. I haven’t the heart to say what I think of Duke.

Though Kara Lawson, who coached the women, is quite likable. That’s because she didn’t go there so lacks the arrogance.
