    Was really hoping Allen did something stupid there just to provide more evidence.

    South Carolina and Michigan are my jams from here on out.

    I know Frank Martin is an intense guy, but always liked him as a coach

    Wow just saw UCLA drain 3-3 pointers in about 30 seconds. When they're on, they're unstoppable.

    A Wisconsin Baylor match up would be interesting.

    Did I just see CBS put the #2 next to South Carolina's name when they showed their bracket?

    They are Golden State of the NCAA's. Cinnicinati is getting boat raced right now.

    I want to say they don't count certain things prior to either 1985 or 1980, or whenever it was the tournament started getting officially "seeded".

    I think West Virginia will be in the final four.

    because those sweet 16's were in the 70s way before there was even just 64 teams in the tournament. They only had to win one game back then to be in the sweet 16. I think the announcers mean modern day sweet sixteens.

    Too bad. Seeing Duke get pasted was a bit of redemption, and I was hoping Alford would fall on his face.

    Wouldn't doubt it. Hey CBS, where is your ACC 2-0 graphic showing how great their record is? Not to mention that it was wrong as they "forgot" Wake Forest had already lost. #FakeNews

    It's kind of like how nobody talks about how ISU has a Final Four appearance. It happened back when ISU only had to win one game to get there.

    Like ISU's Final Four in 1944 really only being the 2nd round. :)
