    Bilas Blog

    Quote from his recent blog post, "Because there are no dominant teams like there were in 2007-08 or 2008-09, it would not be at all shocking to see a team like Colorado, Iowa State or Oregon get hot and reach the Final Four in Dallas. It could be that kind of season, and those seasons can be all kinds of fun."

    Also has OSU at #8 in his title contender list, with Iowa and Kansas as "also receiving votes."

    Yes please. :)


    I don't do signatures. Blondes, brunettes, and red heads are a different story.

    With less gutless officiating in the NCAAs this could have happened last year.

    Love that legit national folks say things like that. If we can get a good tourney draw, you never know.

    Credit to ISU, as they have looked the part of a team that will contend for a conference title. Who knows in the NCAA, it is about match ups, but like Bilas there doesn't look to be a team in the country that ISU couldn't hang with.

    I mean seriously.....all this week everyone saying you don't blame the refs, you are gonna go and blame the refs for a game that had 20 Personal fouls called for both teams, on a single call with 1-2 minutes left in the game?

    Ha. Totally different situation. It was a blown call that even the media said was a blown call and it was a singular call that decided the outcome of the game.

    On paper this has the look of a wide open upset infested NCAA tourney. With that said, it'll probably be a boring chalk filled bracket in the early rounds taking the air out of that balloon.
