You think vandy makes the final four and i think they lose in the first round...i really really want to pick detriot, but the match up is all wrong. However didnt a really good kansas team lose to bradley a few years ago?

By the same token that UNC got a cakewalk bracket, Kansas has one as well AND they're virtually playing home games. Kansas may be the only team I'm worried about in that bracket.

The south is plain nasty, and I think the East is slightly easier than that.

Michigan St and Syracuse don't make it out of their regions.

I got UNC, UK, Mizzou, and Ohio St as my Final 4 teams

And I have Wichita St going to the Sweet 16. Vandy don't make it out the first round and New Mexico shocks the Spartans to get to the Elite 8

Although I don't think UNC's draw is tougher than the other 1 seeds, I think some of you guys are seriously underestimating Creighton and Temple.

Temple especially is a very good team.

I wouldn't complain either if I had something not deserved handed to me or my team.

Like beating State earlier in the year...I get that now

I think Indiana loses its first game. I think UConn loses to Iowa State. I think Vanderbilt makes the Final Four. And I think my Cats are going to hang number eight this year. That loss yesterday was exactly what they needed.

UK definitely has to be the favorite followed by The Cuse, Michigan St and Kansas.

On an opening night of colossal comebacks in the NCAA tournament, BYU climbed out of the biggest hole.

Brandon Davies added 18 points and Damarcus Harrison 12 for the 14th-seeded Cougars (26-8), who advanced to play third-seeded Marquette on Thursday in Louisville, Ky.

    • I'm not even going to say blessed, but what about those who aren't lucky enough to have that many people in their community? What about those who come from communities where the populace, let alone 1100 people, can't afford to even buy a plate? This is that compassion thing ive been talking about. Compassion thrown your way, but when it's time to do your part to help others who are in need, all of a sudden you and the ones who think like you then decide it's time to go on a lecture about how it's time to strap up your bootstraps and get to work. I also hope and pray you were not one of these individuals who were the "let's vote Trump in, so we can watch it all burn" type people. Those are probably the most selfish and least understanding of all people. Wanting to see things burn without even considering that most aren't in a position for this thing to burn down. 
    • Funny how conservatives want to legislate all of these biblical morals, but not the ones that Christ espoused.
    • I keep writing, but you aren't reading. One more time: he wasn't speaking of taxes as charity, but as a duty, something one had to do within their society. And on the wealthy man, please refer to his admonishment of Timothy. And that's as far as we're going with this. Either you get it or you don't. I can't explain it more simply. Beyond this, you're just trolling for an argument and attention.
