    Ugh! My Hoyas aren’t in it, but I guess that might improve my picks.

    • Presumably Thompson III didn’t whine like Boeheim of Syracuse did about his team’s non-inclusion.

      • Bob_Hendley

        No one whines like Boeheim! But turmoil in Georgetown after two losing seasons in a row. Many want JTIII’s head despite pretty good decade of coaching before that.

        • DXMachina

          I was worried when the Big East split from the football schools, but I gotta say that I don’t miss Syracuse or Boeheim at all.

          I do miss UConn, though.

          • Bob_Hendley

            I hear UConn may want back in.

          • DXMachina

            Yeah, that’s the talk around here, although both sides vociferously deny it. The football people at UConn are certainly against it.

        • And it looks like they got that head too. Fickle!

          • Bob_Hendley

            Yeah. Let’s see who’s coming. Current crop of students haven’t tasted much since 2013 (though we got bounced by a double digit seed that year!). Fans were pretty vociferous. Me thinks because they felt that unless they had a strong voice things wouldn’t change given the weight of his father in the program. Then, after the season a couple more players defected and the wonderkid HS point guard who had signed up decided to ask out of his commitment. Basically, the administration had little option at that point, as next season didn’t provide much promise for a turnaround.

  • Bob_Hendley

    Ha! Saying “Go Wildcats!” is a mouthful. Knowing you it is Arizona, but other wildcats included Villanova, Kentucky, Northwestern and Kansas State.

  • Pfft. One final and my bracket is already busted. Thanks, Notre Dame!

    • DXMachina

      Happened to me, too.

    • Bob_Hendley

      Dang! Had the Tigers beating them as well.

    • Bob_Hendley

      Have Xavier beating Maryland as well. We’ll see how that works out.

  • Bob_Hendley

    Ha! So far we are not so bad as a group ranking just outside the top 50 in the ESPN tournament.

    • No help from my choices, though. Ah well, as Scarlett O’Hara once said, “Tomorrow is another day.”

      • Bob_Hendley

        Right at the moment, we are all three tied with 180 points!

  • DXMachina

    And there goes the alma mater (Seton Hall). Bother.

    • Bob_Hendley

      Had them winning that one. Angel is a monster on the boards.

      • DXMachina

        He is. I don’t know how you can get that many offensive rebounds and still lose.

    • Bob_Hendley

      Just saw the replay of the end. Officials sure missed the obvious travel on the Razorbacks.

  • DXMachina

    Welp… That’s it for me. Thanks for nothin’, Nova.

    • Bob_Hendley

      Big Eastwise Xavier and Butler in the Sweet Sixteen, but with major challenges in Arizona and UNC, if the latter can get by the Razorbacks.

  • Bob_Hendley

    ACC down to one team.

  • Bob_Hendley

    Well, two Wildkitties still in the hunt.

  • Bob_Hendley

    See that you two have done well, despite early round whining. Me? Not so good.

    • I’m number 1808141!

      Seriously, getting two out of four Final Four participants right almost makes up for Arizona getting beaten by Xavier. Almost.
