I find it really interesting that we match-up with Iowa State and Talen Horton-Tucker.

Man, he'd look good in the Scarlet and Gray.

For a long time, I thought he was going to be a Buckeye.

If I remember correctly, weren’t we the ones who actually backed off him? He was a very lightly recruited 3-star before he exploded as a very late bloomer.

I think he ended up in the top 50 of the 2018 class. (Not that any of that actually matters)

Is everyone on Cal-Irvine as a sleeper? They have one of the scrappiest defenses in NCAA. I think they can take K-State. I am a St. Mary's fan but they have a tough matchup.

Zion over North Carolina in an instant classic.

Was kind of rushed to make my bracket this year. Didn't have near enough time for any research that I usually do, and my S16 doesn't have as many reaches as I like to have. Here's some notable upsets (#11 seed or higher) I have in the first round:
#11 Belmont over #6 Maryland
#13 UC Irvine over #4 Kansas State
#11 Saint Mary's over #6 Villanova
#12 New Mexico State over #5 Auburn

Fucking kid from New Mexico passed up a game tying layup for no goddamn reason.

Then some other dude goes 1/3 from the line with a second left. New Mexico loses by 1 point and destroys my fantastic upset pick. Fucking losers.

Any players to watch out for tonight or tomorrow, outside of the obvious Duke/UNC/Ja Morant?

I was watching. What the fuck kid. I mean, I guess that was how the play was drawn up, but at the same time, the defender left the lane WIDE open. lmao

Purdue in final four would be my college lifetime sports highlight.

And my Big Bros alma matter. He was there when Hersey Hawkins played there and made a run in the Tourney in the late 80's
