    March Madness NCAA Tournament Thread

    New Orleans coach just gave his team zero chance to win. You have to foul that last possession.

    Question....say game clock would be at 4.1 when shot clock (which was at 3 and there was 7.1 seconds remaining in game) expired. If player releases the ball at 4.5 and ball hits rim...clock keeps running on a miss....what if the released shot does not hit rim? Clock automatically stops at 4.1 or officials stop play and get it to 4.1?

    Could the player shoot a very very high arcing shot towards the rim and release at 4.5 and ball miss rim and get the clock a decent bit under 4.1?...probably nearer 1.0-1.5 by the time ball is rebounded and time out called?

    Yeah, gotta extend the game instead of leaving your team 2.6 seconds to go the length of the court.

    By the way, that Thibodeaux dude for New Orleans went nuts. Got in his teammate's face, tried to choke him, and then screamed at the coach. Sat basically the last 10 minutes, which might have cost his team a win.

    My guess without looking at any rules is that, if the ball is released before the clock expires, time should continue to run until someone touches the miss or it hits the ground.
    GO TRIBE.

    That was my initial thought while watching....take it down to 1 and shoot a shot from 25 feet away and shoot it pretty much high as you can but to not hit any cameras or anything in reach...go ahead and try to make it like a trick shot.

    Filling out my bracket was weird. I think each person's bracket will look more similar to everyone else's than normal. Mine was pretty damn vanilla.

    Wake was one of those teams that didn't really do anything to deserve being in, but got the "they're in a really good conference" bump that made their mediocre performance seem better than it actually was to the people in charge of things. And it showed last night.

    Mine wasn't. Four double-digits in the Sweet 16 and about 5-6 more winning in the first round. My main fear is that I've become so annoyed by ESPN's rampant ACC-blowing that my bias against them got a bit extreme, but that's life.

    ACC had 6 of the Sweet 16, 4 of the Elite 8, and 2 Final Four teams last year, plus the conference has several really good teams again this year. A lot (not all) of the ESPN love is deserved.

    Oh, I agree with that. For me, it was the post-bracket-reveal ESPN show that featured 20 minutes of whining over Syracuse's mediocre ass not getting in, followed by half the studio predicting a Duke-UNC final. My Backlash Meter eventually blew up.

    Not filling out a bracket this year. But I think it's gonna be fairly chalky.

    I did this last year and loved just enjoying the tournament.

    I filled out a bracket on ESPN this year, but didn't enter one in any pools for money. Gonna just enjoy the madness again!

    The tournament is great either way. But last year was so much better IMO. Able to just watch(other than the player pick em) and not care who wins. Other than Carolina and whoever was playing Duke, of course.

    Providence led by 17 early in the 2nd half. They're now down 1 with 6 minutes and change to go.

    I haven't looked at spreads or anything. But Winthrop +11 seems like a great value. I think they have about a 25% chance for a win.

    I want to PayPal you money to throw on the Nevada ML for me, lol. They're my team this year, which probably means they'll lose by 15.
