    Things going to seed make for nice looking matchups. VCU-Mich, Memphis-MSU, CSU-Louisville, Butler-Marquette are must watches in my book. This first Saturday and Sunday are the best days of the tourney.

    The bold are the teams I need to win that somehow survived the first round so I can have a salvageable bracket. However, I would love to see upsets rule the day.

    I really need VCU to win, otherwise I would declare my bracket completely out of the running in my pool

    I have Louisville, Gonzaga, Syracuse, and Michigan State in my elite 8. Cannot have them lose or else bracket = dead.

    Michigan taking VCU apart right now. Kind of proves my point that if you have the ability to attack a press, you can get a ton of easy buckets.

    VCU's press works a lot better when they're facing a team whose starting pg is in jail and two other starters are out with the flu than it does against Trey Burke

    That seems like a fairly narrow set of circumstances to game plan around...lol

    Re: ***Official Saturday Madness****

    VCU is my favorite non Iowa State team. So I've watched them when able this year. Their press is good but their shooting is suspect. I wouldn't have picked them to beat akron had their pg not been out.

    VCU is a really good team this year, but not elite.

    Dang I was rooting pretty hard for VCU.. they are getting torn apart. Tv commentators said Michigan has been preparing to beat the press all season long. Couple that with ******* auburn hills and VCU got a tough draw.

    VCU seems to run very hot and cold. Michigan brought a freezer to this game for them, and they can't escape it.

    Michigan has missed a lot of open 3's too, this could be worse
