    As much as I love him, words cannot describe how mad I was at DJ Cooper for continuing to shoot when he had Offutt and Kellogg, who basically couldn't miss, begging for the ball.

    I have refused to listen to any and all people trying to give me the, "well, it was a good run and you should be proud of them," line. Not only should OU have won that game, it shouldn't have been that close. When the Bobcats figured out how to deny the entry passes to Zeller and Henson, the game should have been over.

    Its a good thing UK won or my kids would have learned the definition, contextual, and syntactical use of some colorful words and expressions they have never before experienced.

    Awful call against Baylor.

    Going to be a blue-blooded final 4. Louisville will have the fewest F4 appearances of the bunch with 9. That's pretty stout.

    Certainly, it's a change from last season.

    Wonder what the ratings will be nationally?

    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    It amazing that when the Wisconsin types disappear from a tournament the quality of play rises exponentially. I feel like there should be some minimum points per game threshold to be an "At Large" bid. Conference winners still get automatic bids, but you need to prove that you can actually entertain an audience with basketball to be invited to play.

    Re: 2012 NCAA Tournament

    You could argue that four of the top five or six programs (in terms of following) will be in New Orleans.

    The Top Ten, in no particular order (IMO):
    UNC
    Duke
    KU
    IU
    OSU
    UK
    UofL
    Syracuse
    UConn
    Tennessee

    I thought about Arizona, Wisconsin, and Notre Dame for the last spot, but went with the attendance leader among them.

    I got three of the Final Four teams right on my bracket. Maybe I won't be in such bad shape after all when we get our round 2 update tomorrow for my work pool!

    It used to be what I referred to as Big Ten basketball but this season it seemed many Big East teams was going to it as well. As one commentator said the other day on ESPN radio, South Florida is a good story but do you really want to see that brand of basketball advance ?

    The officiating in this entire tournament has been just really, really bad. Inconsistent and just flat-out wrong at times. Very frustrating considering how big these games are for every team.

    I am in no way a UofL fan but there were a couple of occasions where Fla should have been called for 5 seconds inbounding ball violations. This is in addition to the bad T on Pitino.
