Awesome! Kentucky just keeps coasting like I said.

Definitely good for Kentucky IMO. I was actually worried about playing Arizona because I don't think we matched up well with them. Buffalo runs an up tempo offense and Kentucky is really good going up tempo. Much more winnable game for us I think. 

 

That said, Buffalo is dang good so Kentucky will need to bring it. That was definitely a heck of a game from Buffalo last night.

I wouldn’t bet on it. Buffalo could win, they look pretty good

Yup Buffalo is certainly impressive. Coach Cal ain't gonna overlook em though so I bet UK gives a much better effort than Zona did. It should be a fun game as both teams play close to a similar style.

Hass out for the rest of the Tourney! Fractured elbow. Really Bad news for Purdue. I am not sure they beat Butler without him?? That would hurt my bracket bigtime if they lose Sunday.

SON OF A BISQUIT!!!!!!! Terrible way for him to end his college career!!!!:wall: Poor dude! And why was he even out there anymore??? They were already smokin Cal, not sure why most there starters were out there so late in the game with such a lead? I just don’t get Painter sometimes :nono:  Time for Haarms to step up, Butler is ALWAYS a challenge!!!!!

Virginia is tied with a 16 seed at halftime. 

 

Wow. Tied at halftime and they end up losing by 20! That's terrible. 

 

I used to love March Madness. I stopped following college basketball after the conferences, especially the Big East, started changing (conference realignment). But I love upsets. I hope they continue.

That was 1 reason why I had KY going to the Final 4. I never thought Virginia was that great. I didn't think they would lose to UMBC but I had faith in KY if those 2 were to play. KY has to be careful with Buffalo, that is a game they should win but Buffalo smoked Arizona.

Virginia just never has a good offense. In some ways last night was probably a fluke and if they played a 7 game series Virginia would probably win, its still a stunning loss. One of the biggest upsets in sports history. Its right up there with App. State beating Michigan in football years back.

That's why I love college basketball. The best team doesn't normally win the championship because anything can happen in a one game scenario.

Me too. I love it. One of my favorites was the Valparaiso upset years ago when Bryce Drew made that last minute shot to beat Ole Miss.

 

 

My alma mater is a member of the America East, the conference that UMBC is from. I will be rooting for them and for Buffalo. This is exciting. :)

I am a fan of Notre Dame, which is in the ACC when it comes to B-ball. And Virginia's defense was great, but if you could play defense and give theirs trouble, you had a great shot at beating them. Also Notre Dame looking to be NIT champs! (better than what Virginia did :)

    • Thanks, I appreciate that. I feel that people should know why 1.) I'm so negative when the team loses and 2.) That I'm not just some crazy person lol. I feel the same way about Alex Anthopulous (the Braves GM in baseball) as you do about Chris Ballard for the Colts. I have full faith in him and have the exact opposite personality when I currently watch baseball. Honestly, I just want to get into the playoffs every year and give ourselves a chance to win a championship. I don't expect to be the best every year. Give me the sweat of being in the playoffs. I got that with the Braves and got a WS win, got it with the Nuggets and Avalanche and they won their championships.    I make a joke with my friends that I sold my chance to win a SB down the toilet to win a championship in baseball, basketball, and hockey. Football is my favorite sport, so it's like that sacrifice "you can win in everything else but the sport you truly love" lol.    I know I'm a bit overbearing at times, but I'm a great person to be around when the team is winning. I truly want to win more than most, and I just want what's best for the team. Making the playoffs would make me happy most years as it's a major step forward and I guess it set me off last year when I raised my expectations at the end of the year based on how the year went. 
    • I look at it this way. Steichen probably isn’t the HC if we had fired Ballard.  Yeah he should have been fired but I am actually glad now that we didn’t make that change. 
    • You said Ballard had one of his best drafts last year.   How would you know that if you have to wait 3 years ?   Hmmmmmm....... ????
    • No I don’t want him fired today right before the combine and the draft. But I’m on record saying he should’ve been fired after the 22/23 season and I stick by that. I do think we’re married to him for this season and the next because of AR. But now he has to build a competitor and he hasn’t in going on 8 years.    The team did better than I expected last season which I’ve said multiple times, but there are mitigating factors (like more than half the league losing their starting QBs) and in any other season I’m not sure we would’ve won 9 games.    I very much like Steichen. I have very high hopes for AR. I like the changes to the coaching staff and hope they pan out and elevate the positions groups that’ve been lacking for a long time. I have high hopes for Downs. I’m just not going to crown anyone until they’ve proven they’re worth it.    I’m sorry if you feel that’s not positive, but I want results/production not fairy tales and unicorn farts. Talk is cheap.   If you want positive comments I suggest you take a look at twitter/X - Colts fans there are already proudly proclaiming AR will topple Mahomes and that he’s a MVP candidate next season. Lol.
