Thread: The On-Going NCAA Mens Basketball Thread

    Default The On-Going NCAA Mens Basketball Thread

    There wasn't an NCAA 2012/2013 season thread yet so I figured I'd make one that will cover future years as well.

    That said... Is it football season yet? Ugh.

    Though I do like the new UK t-shirt...

    Saw the end of that last night. Almost posted here about it. Then remembered I'm a Clemson graduate, which requires me to go into hibernation until baseball season.

    My hometown team, Gonzaga, is ranked #7 in the latest AP poll. Can't get excited, though. They were ranked #2 several years back going into the tournament and were bounced in the second round. Even ranked second in the country, they were a 2 seed. No respect.

    I'm guessing they'll get a 4 or 5 seed and make it to the Sweet Sixteen this year. Definitely win their first tournament game and get no farther than the Elite Eight. Pretty much par for the course.

    Gonzaga ranked #2. A #1 seed is a definite possibility. I can't help but think they'll lose to an 8th or 9th seed in the second round, though. They were badass in 2004 and suffered that very fate.

    Lordy Gawd, may they make it to the Final Four this year.

    UK might not even make the tourney this year. Still a chance, but it's quite slim.

    Does the SEC have a tournament? They're second place in the conference. Some of the guys on ESPN were saying if they win out, they shuld get in.

    Yeah, the SEC has a tourney, but I would think Florida's the odds-on favorite to win it. Still, weird shit happens during THE MADNESS, so who knows. I think UK will probably get an at-large unless they really shit the bed.

    So, Gonzaga....... #1. Pretty cool.

    We're hoping for a Final Four appearance. They definitely deserved the ranking, as everybody else continues to lose. Ranking doesn't equal championship, not too many people are getting their panties in a bunch.

    I think if you're the defending champs, with 68 friggin seeds, you should be able to get an automatic bid in the NCAA tournament.

    Losing in the first round of the NIT? All you can say is "we were champions last year." Fuck it. I'd rather win a championship than keep going to the sweet sixteen or elite 8 just about every year. The goal is to win it all. Kentucky did it, so don't hang your head.

    The nightmare is over.

    Yeah, you would think defending champs would get a free slot in the tourney, but when the NCAA absolutely hates your coach with a passion........

    21-12... I'll take that. A bad UK year is better than a lot of teams' good years.

    No surprise there. As a 1 or 10 seed, they pretty much perform the same.

    Sigh. I'll be rooting for the cinderella teams. I picked Louisville to go all the way.

    Fuck Louisville. People outside the state are like "at least you have one Kentucky team to root for". Pfffft. Louisville fans are the worst. And generally, people from Louisville are ashamed of Kentucky. Pretty sure they would secede and become part of Indiana if they could. Their fans are never gracious and cheerful when UK does well, so why should I cheer them on?

    Again I say fuck Louisville.

    FUCK RIGHTS, just as it should be. I can't stand those people that will be like, "eh, you should be happy when South Carolina does well since it's good for the state." FUCK THAT. I would get a sex change and root for the fuckin' Taliban before wishing good things on South Carolina. FUCK THEM.

    But, on the bright side of a Louisville win... this will ensure that TV's 'The First 48' will get renewed for another season.

    Theres been a lot of upsets this year. Kansas has lost to some lesser teams.

    I don't follow college basketball too much but I have been paying attention to Wiggins and Parker as I am hoping one of them ends up on Sixers.
