    ***The Elite 8 Thread***

    We got some good games for the next two days

    Syracuse vs. Marquette - The last game against each other as Big East foes. Marquette has already beaten Syracuse once, can they do it again?

    Ohio State vs. Wichita State - The last of the Cinderella's remain. Will Ohio State need another last second three to win and get to the final four?

    Florida vs. Michigan - This is going to be an up and down game. Should be incredibly fun to watch. Both teams match up very well against each other.

    Louisville vs. Duke - Pitino vs. Krzyzewski. Need I say more?

    The first Final Four team is Syracuse. That zone is looking unbreakable.

    I hate Syracuse, but Marquette has been irritating me in recruiting. Plus, Syracuse might have any wins vacated if the investigation rumors are true, so this is a win/win.

    That was a real yee-hah game, and a nice chance for a nap.

    What a boring game. Hopefully the second one is better. Syracuse is looking more and more like a team that could win it all.

    Yup. If Gardner could have had his windmill moment, at least that would have been entertaining. Can't even steal from two teammates hugging.

    Boeheim joins some elite group of coaches. Marquette breaks records for futility.

    Hopefully this game will be better than that awful pregame speech.

    I'd run through a brick wall for that man. Well, I'd jog through a brick wall. Or maybe all I'd need to do is mosey through a brick wall. Yeah, that'll do.
