    So I go to the Ohio/Gtown game....and at the end of the game with about a minute left...the crowd starts chanting "Georgetown sucks" hahahahahahah obviously those were people from RI not Ohio, whereas them and UCONN are the 2 most hated basketball teams around here....

    BuckeyeKing you must be happy.....

    Georgetown does suck, embarrassing the big east like that. John Thompson needs to do a better job embracing his dad's tradition of defense at that university. I mean if he was teaching it the way his dad did then Greg Monroe would be the dominant big man he should be.

    Yep.

    And how do those Robert Morris fans feel now? Nova always struggles in the first round...last year they nearly lost to American before making the final four. :lol:

    Cornell's first ever tourney win. My sister and brother in law were thrilled....silly cornellians think they actually have a chance at winning the whole thing. I thought Ivy leaguers were supposed to be smart :)

    If Duke beats WVU I finish 3rd.
    If WVU wins Championship I finish 5th

    But if WVU beats Duke, but losses in Title Game, I finish 1st.

    WVU has the BEST 2ND HALF DEFENSE IN THE COUNTRY!!! :yes:

    THAT'S why we will win the National Championship...plus we are the best at rebounding in the country now. :up:

    Do you REALLY think Duke will beat us?

    I picked WVU, so think they have a punchers chance......that said, Duke is a far more consistent shooting team.

    That consistency can be the difference. Even Coach Huggins knows that. WVU shooting could be our down fall.....but if we stay as hot as we did from 3 like vs. Kentucky, yes, we (:up:) can beat Duke.

    LOL...I see what you mean now. :up:

    What I was saying is that if WVU wins the National Championship, I win it all, no matter who they play. :wink2:

    Wow, just realized I won. Thanks for the banner, Crunch. My brackets were so destroyed by the time Syracuse lost I thought I was done for.
