This coach on coach stuff at the same school is getting more common. Just a couple of days ago, Saban suspended a guy for getting arrested going up to 141 miles an hour running from the cops with a half a pound of weed, $7K, and a gun in his car. Said there is no such thing as "wrong place at the wrong time".

Your turn Nate.

Loved this. The cognitive dissonance inflicted on Bama fans must have been vertigo-inducing.

Damn overtime. K St should have taken it to the rim up 2 in regulation. Maybe they will this time.

Vols losing to underdogs at the end of the year is a theme this year. Baseball, football, and basketball.

Oh well. This offense can be frustrating.

One blowout and 3 pretty entertaining games tonight. Not bad.

Oh look at that, 4 for 4 in the make-up bracket. My lack of faith in Tennessee pays off.

Low bar though, I am also 4 for 4. So not much to be proud of yet ukick.

Challenge Accepted

Lol I did my real one for GWJ and then 5 random sweet 16 brackets and my best result from last night is 1 out of 4.

How in the world

FEAR THE SPEAR BABY!!!

Alabama loses and Houston getting smoked by Miami. All our brackets are dead. lol

Only 4 times have we had only one 1-seed in the Elite 8. 2000, 11, 13, 22.

Never had 0. Until now.

Firs time since they introduced seeds in 1979. Some tournament!

Perfect bracket baby!

Spoiler:

every pick wrong. I really suck

Cards won the late game in Seattle in the women's bracket. 5 straight Elite 8s. Pretty damn good.

Showdown Sunday night with Iowa. Caitlin Clark vs Hailey Van Lith. 2 of the best scorers in the game. Should be fun

Teams in the Elite 8:

Mountain West: 1
Pac-12: 0

Don't forget...

ACC: 1
B1G: 0
SEC: 0

But all season some narrative about how it's a down year for the ACC and the B1G was the best and how the SEC was on the rise with new coaches...

What a great first game

How many tickets do the teams get in the Final 4? Are they hard to get? Not that it will matter?

My Vol women's team went out in the Sweet 16 along with the men. Both teams dealt with some pretty critical injuries, but made it further than I expected in their tourneys. More potential was there for both of them, but that's the way it goes.

Wow. UConn looked like that scary good team from earlier in the season, and Gonzaga... well, Gonzaga forgot how to shoot. Brutal loss for the 'zags. Wonder if Timme will come back one more time?

Happy Dream Game anniversary. 40 years ago today.

Enjoy the best overtime in March Madness history.

Spoiler:

Cards score the first 14 points.

If you're a season ticket holder / donor, usually not that hard, particularly for smaller schools where I'm assuming the athletic donor base / season ticket holder history isn't super long.

I'm shaking. That was SUCH a close game.

Definitely thought it was a foul and the right call. Creighton guy got a handful of jersey and pulled.

Not sure WTF was going on with the clock though. Thought they added too much on the foul and then took away too much on the inbound. Whatever, I guess it evens out?

2nd game looked like a blowout but here came Miami and we're tied in the final 4 minutes

And they do it! Miami comes back from 13 down to claim the win!

What a comeback. And I think they did it without making a 3 in the second half?!

I was worried that we'd lost it after that inbound steal.

I think I already locked a win in the tournament challenge. Not that anyone cares any more LOL.

Well sh*t. Caitlin Clark had a 40 point triple double and knocked out Louisville.

Be interesting to see undefeated favorite SCar try to shut her down next week
