    I know no one cares about others brackets but holy shit I am at 98.3% right now. I hit 7 out of 8 Elite 8 teams. The only one I missed on was that I had North Carolina beating Wisconsin or I might have been in the top 1000 brackets overall. Left to go I have Kentucky, Arizona, Louisville and Duke making it into the Final 4. Kentucky beats Arizona and then Duke over Louisville. Then my shocker of Duke over Kentucky. This Kentucky team reminds me of the undefeated UNLV team for some reason. Calipari is overly arrogant as was Tark plus Kentucky seems to need someone to poke them to get them to wake up and play hard. So I went with history repeating itself.

    That is outstanding!

    Im still sitting at 90%

    Wisconsin is making some ridiculous 3 pointers. It's a good thing too because Arizona is banging out a shit load of free throws.

    When will the College coaches learn the 2 for 1 at the end of the game? ND had the ball with 1:10 left on the clock: (70 seconds). They HAD to take a shot, even if they miss, that left them with a BETTER shot at the end. ND had the chance to control there own destiny if they went for the 2 for 1. Coaching(and Brey is a GOOD coach) 101 IMO.

    I'm so bored with KenCROOKY (love that name though).
  • Cliffy6745Cliffy6745 Posts: 26,199
    Kentucky did not miss a shot in the last 12 minutes. That is absolutely insane

    agree 100%. just absurd not to go 2 for 1 there. I also think ND should have given a foul and put Kentucky on the line for a one-and-one instead of letting them take the clock down to under 10 seconds late. I know coaches never do it but there was little chance in the situation Kentucky wasn't scoring. coaches are also calling way too many timeouts before late game situations and are routinely getting stuck with no timeouts for the last possession. You have to make sure you have one late.

    Also Grant came up small late. 4 bad possessions by him. he got bailed out on the one hitting the long 3 at end of the shot clock but the others were terrible. last play guys never pass in the ball in that situation but they should almost always pass it. he had 3 guys around him. pass the ball. and if not pass you sure as shit can't dribble into the corner.

    college basketball has to do something about the timeouts. with tv timeouts there are now 20 timeouts per game if the coaches use all of theirs. it's absurd and there is no flow to the games in the last 10 minutes. over coaching and too long tv timeouts.

    I, for this game, that i agree that ND could've fouled. Why not when you're a BIG underdog? I'm sure if you asked ND before the game, that you could be down 2 pt.s with the chance, and with ample time on the shot clock, with about 15-20 seconds left, would they take it? I say hell yes. Yeah, with 5 timeouts for EACH team, plus the 8 TV timeouts how can you not have any TO's left? I think Brey is a good coach but to have no TO's?

    Yeah, it's kind of easy for us , but it's kinda hard if you're actually in it. Grant could've passed it but i'm not gonna kill Grant for it, but you're correct: why did he dribble into the DEEP corner?

    I've been complaining about the amount of timeouts for years, but it's never gonna change and you know why?$$$$$$$$>MONEY of course. TV has too much say. Plus, the control freaks (AKA: coaches) would never want less timeouts. In fact, they probably would like to have 10 timeouts>LOL>But like you said: there's no flow to the game.
