A&M looks like they've never shot a basketball before. I know FSU plays tough defense, but come on.

I made a facebook post about that. Evidently FSU played the best matchup zone in the history of the NCAA tournament during the second half. I've never seen a team look so clueless on offense. There was a period of like 10 minutes where they only got one legitimate look at the basket. Pathetic.

Mason!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The deceptive athletic Luke Hancock is back!!!!!!!!!!!!

Wow, did he step up or what?!! And where did that performance from Johnny Williams? Nice to see him have a big impact off the bench.

So, my work only had CBS and I could only follow the game online. A boss down the hall had it streaming online and I was able to watch the final minute. I'm going to look for a replay online.

Vcu 2 - Espn and the other haters 0

GO RAMS GO!!!

It was never a matter of whether or not VCU was good enough to be in the tournament. The argument was about whether their resume was better than the other teams'.

Regardless, a great win, and you should be proud. Hopefully they'll continue their magic. Gotta love the cinderellas.

Big East has been pretty strong with Louisville, St John's, Villanova, and now Georgetown with great efforts in the first round.

4 down, 7 to go. :)

Of course, for ACC fans, we're already down to two teams, and realistically, they were the only two teams in the league that were any good this year.

Florida State also won. Or have they been removed from the league. :D

That was easily the most...er...original ending I've seen in a basketball game.

I can only imagine the range of emotions going through Mack's head during the last, say, 30 game-seconds.

2 obvious foul calls too. I actually took Pitt to the Final FOur in 3 out of my 5 brackets(Florida in the other two) but I really wasn't feeling it. History tells you Dixon isn"t going to get Pitt to a Final Four. I just wish I would've pulled the trigger on Wisconsin in a few brackets( they still have to get by KSU tonight too)

    • I am sure a lot of people in Texas are trying to get tested right now.  Perhaps they should have picked a different state to train in.  Seems the places where players have a hard time getting tested are places with high rates of new infections.   Not sure why you would want your players to travel to Texas, Florida or California right now.  Should have picked minor league stadiums in areas with low infection rates to train.  Seems like Houston is about the worst area in the country right now.  So Astro''s decide to have their training camp there?  
    • Maybe combine the ideas? Perhaps later I will look to see if it's possible these expansion teams embraced an offensive philosophy that reduced strikeouts. 20 -> 24 teams isn't nothing, by the way, it's an additional 20%.
    • Well we were scheduled to play the Braves as they are in NL East so that is a negative to Markakis opting out.   Markakis has made over $120 million in his career and would only make $1.48 million this year if the whole 60 games get played.  Seems to be a trend that the guys who have made a ton of money in their career but not making much this year opt out.  Other than Price who has made more than a ton of money and will have a ton more money coming the next couple of seasons. 
    • LOL the Orioles are going to be trying to save money.  They are going to have very low revenue this year.  More likely the big market teams with their big television contracts are the ones that get teams to trade them great players while only taking on part of the players salaries and give nothing much in return. 
    • I don't think Price costs them anything although losing him may hurt their chances. Arguably Betts is still worth it if you believe that a WS this year is just as meaningful as any other year. 
    • It seems to me that these are among the incentives to play, other than the pro-rated salary:  the extra income from making the playoffs, having a shot at a pennant or WS title, the chance for borderline/aging players to show they belong in the majors in 2021, the possibility that in the future some owners or GMs will take a dim view of healthy players who opt out, and (for a few) the enhanced opportunity to reach career milestones. Players are likely guessing, and talking to one another, about how winning the 2020 WS will be regarded and about the likelihood of going through the risks of pre-season training and then not getting in many games before the season implodes (along with the related uncertainty of the owners'  interest in pulling the plug if a full playoff schedule looks unlikely).  Judging from the comments I see on this board and elsewhere, I am guessing players will be all over the place as to how they value these incentives, as well as the health risks. BTW, I assume that once a player opts out, he's not eligible to return later in the season. Is that correct? 
    • Also, he has been with players and staff for over a week.
