    1. Coach k did one of his best coaching jobs this year.

    2. MD is going to be good, so i wouldn't be busting on them.

    3. Rivers does need to stay but he is a lottery pick.

    I wish Dawkins would retire...softest player in the country.

    Losing Ryan Kelly killed them.

    2. MD is going to be good, so i wouldn't be busting on them.-- i agree they will be good.. just not really in the mood to hear cheering from fans with a team not in the hunt.. kinda like a skins fan giving an opinion in the playoffs.

    3. Rivers does need to stay but he is a lottery pick.--agree

    I wish Dawkins would retire...softest player in the country. --agree- add seth and cook

    Losing Ryan Kelly killed them.

    Wow! What a day. Not a Mizzou fan so glad to see them bounced. Expected more fire power from Duke besides Plumlee and Rivers - a huge loss there - sorry to Frobby and SG. Thought Duke got jobbed on numerous calls including the intentional foul (actually didn't think there was any foul there, let alone an intentional one). Michigan falling to Ohio - that's nuts also - would have loved to see the B1G go 6-0. This was supposed to be the year where the big conferences dominated and we now have three staggering results.

    Who's the first #1 to go down?

    Marquette might be the team to beat in the West.

    Have 2 15's ever won in the same tourney?

    Big opportunity for the winner of the Xavier ND game. Winner should get to Elite 8, IMO. I'm not impressed with Baylor.

    Here's an example if the power of the hangout. I don't care about the nd/Xavier game, but I'll root for Holliday and co because of privateO.

    Ehh whatever. Bad calls, good calls...whatever.

    They got outplayed. They played stupid...they got out hustled and they didnt want it as much as Lehigh.

    I don't care if there was maybe a bad call or not. They deserved to lose. It's an embarrassment.

    They don't lose if Kelly plays but he shouldn't have had to play for Duke to win either.

    3. They had to redshirt because they lacked strength.

    I'm gonna take a wild guess that you are an Indiana fan, judging by your handle.

    That being said, I've been a VCU fan since the early 90's during the Sonny Smith era. Looking forward to a good game tomorrow!

    3. They had to redshirt because they lacked strength.-- goes back to recruiting the right players, no true wing player in years. Who was the last good 3?

    I have a boy, despite Duke University, who advised my wife to have an abortion two months into her pregnancy. My hatred for that particular institution knows no bounds. Yes, it's very personal. So to those who don't appreciate me dancing on their grave tonight.

    Tough.

    Oddly I owe my life to that institution.

    One of my Final Fours is already down (Duke).

    I still have North Carolina, Cincinnati, and Marquette.

    I'll say this about SG. He loses with grace. Being an O's fan must transcend other sports.

    As for "pushmonkey" well you can go suck an egg.
