    March Madness 2013 discussion

    It's that time again.

    First things first, congrats to RichRed and Scrap Irony, as James Madison and Western Kentucky have punched tickets to the big dance.

    UK should have at least 25 championships by now.

    Lets see, I will be 134 years old when this thread becomes relevant. Mike Krzyzewski will be a robot by then and will still be manipulating refs to the enth degree.

    Hey thanks, Rev! I drove the two hours to Richmond for the game and had an absolute blast. I'm a little hoarse and tired this morning at work but so happy for the kids on that team. We might be destined for a "First Four" matchup in Dayton but right now, I don't care. I was a young man of 25 the last time the Dukes were in the NCAA tourney (1994), so it's been a long wait, and it feels great!

    You'd have thought Northeastern would have learned from falling behind 28-4 to George Mason in the semifinals that it was important for them to come out firing on all cylinders. Then they did basically the same thing in the finals. Perhaps coming all the way back against Mason just left them with nothing in the tank.

    Having seen that comeback against GMU, I was a nervous wreck almost until the final horn sounded. NU did manage to cut the lead to 8 at one point, so there was definitely an "Oh no, not again" feeling for a while there.

    Hoping UC makes the tourney at this point. They escaped USF, and ESPN thinks they're a lock but they need to beat Providence to ensure punching their ticket. Once in the tourney, they need to hit some of their 489 three pointers they fire up each game otherwise they'll be bounced early.

    Nevertheless, when UC walks off the court for the final time I'll probably root for Miami (FL) the rest of the way, purely because of Larkin.

    I have a feeling WKU will get an early tourney matchup with U of L.
    Just my prediction

    Wow, Wright State. That was probably the ugliest final 5 minutes of a basketball game that I've ever seen.

    I'm guessing Indiana.

    They've played Louisville already this year, and the NCAA is typically loathe to re-match schools in the same season.

    WKU would provide the Hoosiers an opponent that requires little in the way of preparation and one that can't shoot straight.

    It will also give me a chance to scream at the TV and act like a moron everytime Zeller pratfalls onto his face for another phantom foul on his opponent-- so that's a bonus.

    Perhaps I can stroke out as WKU is leading early in the first half...

    Just a hunch, Scrap, but I can see a Gonzaga/WKU first round matchup.

    The reasoning:

    * Two non-BCS schools with rich College B-Ball traditions/NCAA tourney success histories. It wasn't that long ago when nobody at all would have been surprised to see the aforementioned schools matched-up in the Sweet 16.

    * For the simple reason that Gonzaga does not play in a BCS conference, they are perceived as the weakest #1 seed, not that I agree with this line of reasoning at all -- they are for real. But, given the fact that WKU was largely an injury-riddled team all year and are finally healthy and playing well, WKU profiles as the type of low seed capable of taking a heavy favorite down to the wire, with a chance to steal the game at the end.

    If said match up were to materialize, I imagine that the record for viewership of a 1/16 match up would match or exceed the Georgetown/Princeton classic match up ratings of 1989.
