2017 NCAA Tournament Thread

Ok, one of the best sports days of the year, the start of the NCAA tournament! Who you got in the final four??

I've got Arizona, Louisville, Villanova and Butler in the final four
Arizona and Louisville in the finals and Arizona winning it all.

With my history, this will most likely NOT happen....

In my bracket I have a UK U of L final 4 match up. But in reality I believe UK gets bounced early

UK U of L Nova Notre Dame
UK winning over Nova.

Not sure how I got ND that far our. Pretty dumb of me

Well Princeton almost won. Had a chance to win at the end being down 1 and the ball.

Taco MacArthur has a little shameless behaviour in the past
It was a good look but I don't understand taking a long 3 when you're only down 1 with about 3 or 4 seconds left

March Madness always brings some good and bad hero ball moments.

Certainties: Death, taxes, and a lot of stoppage in play during the NCAA hoops tourney.

This thing is getting close to unwatchable with the final couple minutes of a game sometimes taking 20-30 minutes to complete between fouls, official's reviews for almost any close play, coaches subbing just before putting the ball into play, team time outs, and TV timeouts. Got to let CBS make some $s so everyone but the players can get paid.

Vandy was up by 1 point, then the Vandy player intentionally fouled the NW guy as he was running up the court. NW had the double bonus, they make both foul shots and win the game. I guess Vandy player didn't know the score or that NW was in double bonus.

Gonzaga is a joke. They're treated with kid's gloves, they want the perks of being an elite program w/o the public scrutiny that also comes with being elite.

^ Same except I have Kansas though I don't know why considering they bite the dust so often. I have a Duke - Carolina finale, which would be the first head-to-head meeting in the NCAA.

Gonzaga is hardly a joke, and I'm not really sure what your point is about the kid gloves. Teams take it easy on them?

Maryland was an awful 6 seed. FSU might have a legit shot at Final Four in this bracket

Still an upset when a higher seed beats a lower seed. But yeah, they were favored to win.

not if they were mis-seeded, which clearly both teams were.

do you call it an upset when a 9 beats an 8?

seed # doesn't always determine an "upset".
