    Sparty is only a 9 seed this year, and won't have to face the buzzsaw that is Middle Tennessee State.

    Still surprised by this format. I think the most Ivy thing besides no tournament would've been a best two out of three between 1 and 2.
    I actually like it this way. Cut off the really bad teams (like us) but have a single elimination tourney at the Palaestra and broadcast it. Perfect.

    Is there a USCHO MM bracket contest anywhere?

    Indiana fires Tom Crean right as the NCAA tournament begins. That's how you news dump.

    Pretty quick trigger on Crean. Wondering if they have someone already lined up.

    Like the way during the Butler game they said...'let's see if the Gophers can get the upset'.

    The buy out on Steve Alford's contract on April 30 will be half what it was two years ago, but still pretty steep at $5.2 million. Plus, his kid is done playing at UCLA after this season. He'd be my guess.

    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

    Not sure if the Gophers will win or not. But it was actually very good we had the refs we had in Madison. After getting called for everything and getting handchecked the whole game without any calls our way, the game so far is significantly easier due to the refs alone.
    Go Gophers!

    Depends. Did you pick them to win the tournament, or just one round?

    Losing Springs was a big deal. With him, we have depth and a foul buffer. Without him, its very tight. In large part, it depends on Lynch keeping out of foul trouble and Mason getting started. Neither looks promising at this point.

    I had MTSU and Wilmington as my 5/12 upsets. WVU was close with Bucknell but pulled away the last ten minutes. Northwestern/Vandy good so far.
