    I'm very glad to see the defending champs Duke gone from the tournament. Now that Arizona and Florida are also gone I'd love to see Butler take the title. Their coach looks like he's one of the players....so Go BUTLER.

    Unless you have a dog still in the fight or can win a bunch of money on someone left you have to be rooting for Butler or VCU. GO UNDERDOGS!!!

    VCU??????


    Unreal. That might be the biggest upset in college basketball history. Considering Kansas was one of the top 2 teams all year, and VCU had to play in a play in game. What's the highest seed ever to knock off a 1 seed? I don't remember a 12 seed ever doing it. G Mason was a 11 and they beat UCONN in the elite 8, but I don't remember what seed UCONN was that year.

    You just have to root for those underdogs. As much as I like Butler I think I'll root for an even further out underdog in VCU. I've visited that campus in Richmond and you just gotta love what they have done so far.

    GO VCU!

    Please don't remind me of George Mason. UConn was a 1 seed in the tournament and was #1 for sometime during the season.

    the unpredictability of this tournament makes it one of the best in all sports, if not the best.

    this final four is incredible.

    I love that we get a "underdog/ small school" vs the big guy in VCU or Butler vs UCONN or Kentucky. Hoping VCU or Butler wins it all.

    mid-majors against two lying cheating scumbag coaches. love it. and vcu winning is so awesome to shut those f'rs on ESPN up. Sadly those losers like Hubert Davis and Jay Bilas will never admit they were wrong.

    More than 5.9 million brackets were filled out for ESPN.com's Tournament Challenge, but exactly two went 4-for-4 in picking Final Four teams.


    Those are some tremendous odds those 2 people broke. Almost as difficult as beating the odds to the lottery. You either have to be from one of those underdog schools to get ALL 4 correctly or be tremendously lucky.

    1) convicted of recruiting violations who sold out all of his assistant coaches to keep his job
    2) kept convicted criminals marcus williams and aj price on this team and in the program after they were caught stealing laptops
    3) defiant when questionned about his salary and trying to keep it quiet as state was broke (he is a state employee)

    he is a great coach, but like many at that level he is a shady character

    and jaegs explain to me how i am bitter? i hate nova yes but it ain't because i'm bitter or jealous. Can I call you bitter because you hate the New York Giants? (and you still can't admit i was right about the kitty cats)

    1) HE didn't commit any violations and HE took the blame for it. Nate Miles didn't even put on the jersey and was kicked out of the university in October of his freshman year. The chairman of the infractions committee did say he should be aware of what's going on but obviously can't be aware of every single thing that is going on in recruiting. He didn't pull a Bruce Pearl and have players go over his home for a BBQ.
    2) Both were suspended and AJ Price didn't play the season because he was still recovering from the bleeding in his brain.
    3) Who asks a question about someone's salary during a press conference?

    1) he is the head coach and it's his responsibility and so very nice to sell out his assistant coaches. and yeah i'm sure he didn't know his ex-manager was paying players and steering them to Uconn :roll: :roll: :roll:

    2) should they have been allowed to stay in school and play for that infraction? questionnable at best. i'm you'd be fine with your child living in the same dorm as thieves.

    3) so the highest paid state employee salary shoudn't be public knowledge or in question when a state is in financial trouble? i agree that reporter who brought it up at the time was a douche bag but it was a legitimate question and instead of answering it he proceeded to act like a punk and like he was above being questionned on it.

    as i said above great coach but shady character a la Calipari.

    agree, especially at the highest levels. the AAU circuit is a cesspool in a lot of places and they handle many of the top level players. shady for sure.

    i'm not talking stats... just where they rate on the douche scale... OFF THE CHARTS
