Upset pick of the day Albany over UVA.

Great minds think alike. I also believe Long Beach will knock off Tennessee.

Bill Simmons of ESPN.com Page 2 had this about LBSU ...



Sorry, had to pick the Beach to win two games. I've been a Long Beach supporter ever since Dre' and Snoop brought Compton and the LBC together in "The Chronic." Which reminds me, how much would you pay for a March Madness sequence where a Long Beach State player dunks on a fast break, followed by Gus Johnson losing his mind for a second and screaming, "Long Beach in the motha****** house!" I think I'd pay $750.

They just showed a stat on CBS that said that Small Schools and Mid Majors are 3-12 in the tournament so far with only 1 of those wins coming against a "big school."

Also 14 of the 16 games have been decided by 9 points or more so far.

I'm liking the way the Mean Green from No. Texas are playing. They play hard and are crashing the boards. Still don't think they'll beat Memphis, but it's entertaining to watch.

That's a little skewed since Butler played ODU in an all mid-major extravaganza.

If that were true, I wouldn't be doing so poorly. I'm quietly making my way towards the bottom of the ranks. :(

First time I do this (brackets) and it's fun. Otherwise I guess I wouldn't pay much attention except for the finals.

rotnoid

It's too early to be panicking about the brackets. The first round doesn't mean a whole lot anyway. The way Yahoo does the scoring, every round counts for the exact same number of points. The people in trouble are those that are losing Elite 8 and Final 4 teams. I seriously doubt many people have done that given the low number of upsets.

I haven't lost any Elite 8 or Final Four teams (yet), but I've lost 2 Sweet 16 teams (Old Dominion and Ga. Tech). If upsets aren't abound in those two areas of the brackets those are significant points I'm going to lose to the rest of the field.

This is why I am glad gambling is illegal. Im not real sure what the spread was on that game but I am sure UVA covered. The worse part about going to a quarter college is that we have Finals this week (I had 3 today) and it really gets in the way of getting the whole March Madness experience.

But based on the lack of upsets, they're looking pretty smart right now. If 2 sixes are the only real upsets and all the 7's win, they look pretty good.

Lack of upsets because it was a very weak at large pool and they somehow still picked the wrong teams. Stanford and Arkansas are the two worst picks I can remember in a LONG time.

That was insane.

I had forgotten about that but remember it now. I was trying to think of anyone else scoring that much in a tourney game.

Michigan was the defending champs so that made it even more impressive, though Glen Rice had gone to the NBA.

That was the Loyala team that still had Gathers right? It was the next year that he died and Bo Kimble shot the lefty free throws in his honor. Is that correct or did they score the 149 or whatever it was WITHOUT Gathers? Now that I think about it, it almost seems like maybe they did do it without him.

I think the PG on that team was Terrell Lowery who ended up in pro baseball as a pretty high draft pick. I think he made the majors for a short time, with perhaps Texas. Or maybe it was someone else.

Loyala was amazing there for a few years. I remember one game with Oklahoma in the reg season where it was like 154-153 or something crazy like that and 3 or 4 players had either 50 or close to it. Brent Price, Mark's little brother had something like 54.

I did the same thing. You have to pick a 12 seed to win a couple of games though and we didn't pick the right one. I guess there weren't any right ones this year.

Its only one of 16.

Amazingly, I'm 7 for 7 so far today to up my overall totals to 19 for 23. Like many other people, I picked Winthrop to beat Notre Dame, but I may be able to pick up some ground with some other picks such as Nevada over Creighton and UNLV over Georgia Tech. Both those games were 7 seeds defeating 10 seeds so they weren't upsets, but quite a few people picked the 10 seed upset in one or both those games. I have UNLV defeating Wisconsin and reaching the Sweet 16 so their win was particularly big for me.

Right now, Miami (OH) is playing Oregon very well as they're only down 39-36 with 12 minutes remaining. If Miami wins this game, my bracket will be busted up since I have Oregon reaching the Elite 8. Still, given that Miami's local, I'd like to see then do well and would sacrifice a few points in the bracket in exchange for them pulling a major upset.

MaineRed
03-16-2007, 06:16 PM
Price actually had 56 in that game.


once rang up 56 points against Loyola-Marymount in a performance that included an NCAA-record 11-of-19 effort from three-point range.

http://www.nba.com/playerfile/brent_price/bio.html

Also thought you guys would be interested in this, I sort of stumbled across it by accident through google, interestingly enough it is from the Enquirer. It is the 50 things we love about March Madness:

http://www.enquirer.com/editions/2004/03/14/spt_spthoop1abtop50.html

Here is a sample:


27. Neutral sites. Not since John Wooden's Bruins cut down the nets in LA in 1972 has a team won a title in its home city. Nothing says NCAA Tournament quite like a first-round Boston College-BYU matchup in Boise.

28. Jerry Tarkanian's towel

29. Chris Webber's timeout

30. Keith Smart's swish from the corner

31. Danny Ainge's drive

32. Rumeal Robinson's free throws

33. Christian Laettner's turnaround jumper. He catches Grant Hill's fullcourt pass, he twists, he shoots ... he scores, beating Kentucky 104-103 in double-overtime.

34. Loyola Marymount 149, Michigan 115, 1990. Jeff Fryer hit 11 of 15 3-pointers in the highest-scoring game in tournament history.

Razor Shines

Duke. I root for them almost as much as IU, and so I picked them even though I didn't feel good about it. But the Elite 8 is still intact. Wisconsin gave me a scare though. After watching that game I really think that Tex AM CC was miss seeded, they were better than a 15.
