    THUR or FRIDAY first game?

    Is it impossible to plan for work next week? I am given a choice of if I want Thur or Friday off for the NCAA tournament....and I have to let them know tomm. Brackets don't come out until Sun night. WTF?? My question: Is there anyway to know if we play on Thur or Friday for the first game of the big dance? Last year we played Thur night if I am correct....but this means nothing I understand.

    Wow, that blows. Nothing like having to guess. I took both days off a few weeks ago. No way to know until they announce the pairings.

    Just a wild guess. If we win today, pick Friday. If we lose today, Thursday. Remember, a guess.

    If we lose tonight against Kansas, there is a possibility of not playing either Thursday or Friday, but a play-in game on Wednesday...

    After beating OU, I really don't see us in a First Four matchup even if we lose by 40 today

    No there isn't. Stop that silly talk. OU is safely in, but behind us now in seeding. If anyone from the big 12 is in the play in game, it is OU. We are safely out of the play in game.


    Ill put any dollar that if I get this ball again, Long said, Its going in.

    I would just tell them one way, and if the opposite happens, do the opposite.

    It's going to be Friday 50% of the time, every time.

    Re: THUR or FRIDAY first game?

    Flipping a coin is your best option. I'd take Friday off. If you're right, great! If you're wrong, you still have a three day weekend.

    Our first round opponent will dictate the day and time a lot.

    Re: THUR or FRIDAY first game?

    As a #10 or #11 seed, we play in the evening.


    Using latest Lunardi guesses that we go East in bold: http://espn.go.com/mens-college-basketball/bracketology

    DAY
    As a #12 seed, we might play St Louis, Belmont, Syracuse, Pitt or Wiscy. If we win, then we might play Marquette, Okie State (won't happen), K State (won't happen), or Arizona.

    NIGHT
    As an #11 seed, we might play #6 seed like UNLV, UCLA, VCU, or Butler. If we win, then we might play next round against Mich, Mich St, New Mexico or Florida.

    NIGHT
    As an #10 seed, we might play ND, UNC, Creighton , or Memphis. If we win, we might play Ohio St, Georgetown, Miami or Kansas (will not happen).

    DAY
    As a #9 seed, we might play Illinois, North Carolina State, Missouri, or Colorado State. If we win, we might play Duke, Indiana, Louisville, or Gonzaga.

    Order of playing preference in the East from easy to most difficult:
    #12>#11>#9>#10

    Re: THUR or FRIDAY first game?

    There is better odds then you think, Kansas City is hosting the first weekend and Iowa State will not play there as it will be Kansas and Kansas State and Kansas City is Friday/Sunday games...

    If I was you I would take off Thursday as it seems like ISU plays on Thursday/Saturdays most times!!!

    I am confident Iowa State will be a 10 seed playing in Auburn Hills and that is Thursday/Saturday games in Auburn Hills.
