    You mean like the foul fest during the OSU Syracuse game? The problem I have with the officials is that they are anticipating fouls now. The charge/flop call has gotten out of hand with the semi-circle. I absolutley can't stand when an official makes an emotional call, getting his whole body into it, instead of making the unemotional call.

    Overall for the most part 3 of the best teams made the Final 4. OSU, UK, and Kansas are probably the best 3 in the tournament when you take Marshall's wrist and Melo's suspension into consideration. The other region I think everyone knew was up for grabs and I wasn't surprsed to see UL come out of it. After Missouri lost I thought it was going to be a Marquette and MSU final, but shows you how much I know.

    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.
    Tennessee? You talkin' men's basketball?

    That was terrible. There were two fouls called against tOSU in the 1st half where the Syracuse player missed a layup and a dunk and no tOSU player touched them but the refs called a foul on them anyway.

    What are you talking about? If you are talking about programs, wouldnt UCLA be on that list? Went with the attendendance leader for the last spot? You got 4 teams on that list that werent even in the final Top Ten rankings.

    But anyways......3 of the 4 in the FF do not surprise me. I thought UK, Syracuse, UNC, OSU, MSU, and Mizzou were the 6 best teams in the country and maybe Baylor and Duke could sneak in there. I am surprised a tad bit about Louisville, but they got a coach that has excelled in this thing.
    ...and this one belongs to the Reds.

    All this flopping is due to the soccer influence. LOL

    Congrats to Thad Matta for finally beating a higher seed in the tournament. You're finally performing better in the tournament than William Buford.

    I'll bet you are. I haven't heard of anyone having three of the four teams left in their brackets. Kudos to you...

    My son was 8-8 in the elite 8 and 4-4 with the final four. He is leading the bracket pool at my wife's workplace and it looks like there is no one that can catch him at this point. Unbelievable.

    NCAA tournament bracket winners are about as random as Super Bowl champions

    I watched less college basketball this year than I think ever. In the regular season I saw Ohio State-Duke and part of the Ohio State - Michigan State games.

    I'm in the 98th percentile of brackets at Yahoo. 6/8 elite eight and 3/4 final four. It really can be pretty random.

    I also cashed two $100 bets in Vegas over the weekend, one on Ohio State -3 and one on Kentucky -8. Better lucky than good.

    Can your rapier wit consider the seed numbers his teams have had during his osu tenure? How do you propose they beat a higher seed in 2007, for example? Or how they may have accomplished that last year as a 1 seed, even if they won it all?

    Did you come up with that one on your own or steal it from Jim Rome?

    Kudos. Don't you just love walking up to the cashier and exchanging little pieces of paper for new crisp bills?
