Iowa lost because I overlooked my hatred of them and put them in the final four.

Dick Vitale had UK winning it all and Iowa in the Final Four. There ya go.

Day 2 is underway! Who've ya got?

Loyola 310 and Ohio St 289 in tempo... good grief, the under wasn't low enough. Still less than 50 combined pointes 4 minutes into the 2nd half.

Auburn let Jax State give them trouble for much of the first half, then are pulling away.

Their guards seem hot or cold. I could see them wrecking some teams, or losing to anybody. Pearl's a good motivator, so maybe they'll get stronger as the tourney continues.

Yeah, they've been dominant at times this year... and then vanished for stretches. I am quietly pulling for Yale, since Purdue clobbered us earlier this year, but I don't think Yale has the personnel to handle them.

Love Barkley at the desk. His philosophy on wearing a jersey in the stands. Only allowed for three categories:

*Used to play
*Little kids
*Hot chicks

Not prefered for random dudes.

Early 4 games all gonna be double digit wins. Except maybe Purdue.

2 Villanova losing halfway through the first

As a Vol fan, I'm down with that. One of our two blowout losses of the year (other being UK), although our guards are much better now.

That UK game was all about celebrating Joe B.

They could have beat an NBA team that day

Well it gave UT a new level of focus and player leadership. We're probably better off afterwards.

Apparently there's been some 'clever' editing of Wikipedia afoot -

Look at the "mayor"

This one is already doctored appropriately.

Never mind, Purdue running away. All 4 first games were snoozers. That's more than we had all day yesterday

Hopefully the ACC teams can have a good showing. Miami looking like the dangerous team that beat UNC and Duke earlier this year.

Oh yeah I forgot to post day 1 recap this morning.

How did I miss the cheerleader saving the day?

Miami tried to give it away. 7 point lead to 2 in the final minute, and a 3 at the buzzer off the rim, they survived.

No kidding. I thought they had it, and then nearly snatched defeat from the jaws of victory. Those back to back 3s by Peterson were exactly what you expect in a March Madness game.

Chattanooga looking like the better team than Illinois all game so far

Dang. Illinois first lead at 47 seconds and back and forth and got the win

Boy CBS really wanted that K-Izzo game. Refs handed it to Sparty in the final 2 minutes

Definitely looked like it. Refs have been similarly lapse in this Colgate/Wisconsin game. Some absolute mugging going on under Wisconsin's basket, but then Colgate gets called for a touch foul.

Stop trying to make the Big 10 happen, refs.

First time seeing a Wisconsin game?

Unfortunately not, I don't watch a lot of big10 ball, but they crushed my Tarheels in the tournament last year. I was only flipping around, but there did seem to be a fair amount of physical play allowed on one end tonight!

And of course that means you're in 1st place after 2 days.

So between my wife and I, we have four alma maters--Marshall (me, didn't make it), Kentucky (me, out), Ohio State (my wife), and Ohio University (me and my wife, didn't make it).

Looking forward to Nova ending my rooting interests in the tournament.

You can still root against Michigan.

Dang UNC another good half

We're getting jobbed in the second. Hard to win when it feels like 8 on 5.
