What would you say is the biggest misconception people have about you?

Too bad Arkansas didn't finish off UNC. Would have been epic to see the two ACC powers fall to low seeded SEC teams in the same day

I actually didn't really care about that one. I think by the end I was glad SC won. All of the ones I cared about came excruciatingly close but failed

My bracket is busted, I've lost Villanova and Louisville already. It's been a good tournament to watch so far with alot of close game. Really glad the big ten has fared well. I've told people all along the big ten is the most competitive conference, top to bottom. Other than Rutgers, there was no easy wins in this conference, especially on the road.

Really have to feel for the Vandy kid, as a coach you can't go over every situation that comes up, you hope your kids can understand time, score and situation.

Michigan is playing really well right now. Wagner has really turned it up the last month, with he Walton and Wilson, they have a nice group of players who can spread the floor and defend just well enough.

And let's please just stop christening the ACC as the best basketball conference because we THINK Duke and NC is great every year. The mid to lower teams in that conference are bad. No one ever brings that up. Duke lost 7 games in the ACC this season, and it's not that good!

One thing is for sure, you don't turn the ball over, make your free throws and you win close games. If Iowa State makes free throws down the stretch, they may knock off Purdue. They went 3-6 in the closing minutes of a close game.

My bracket, save the East is holding up just fine. I have all 8 teams remaining in the lower half of the bracket. If I get my Arizona/Kansas final, I'll likely win both pools I'm in. Such a long way to go though, we all know anything can happen.

I have all eight left in the West and South Two in the East, three in the Midwest. Villanova is the only Final Four team I've had eliminated. Too bad the guy who runs the money pool at work dropped the ball this year.

What sweet 16 match-ups are you most looking forward to?

UK-UCLA for me. Should be high-octane, up and down the court with the score reaching possibly the 90's for both teams.

Gonzaga-West Virginia is an interesting match-up I'm looking forward to as well.

Refs have taken over and ruined the West Virginia-Gonzaga game.

17:40 to go in the game and 31 fouls have been called

I hate when teams use timeouts on every possession at the end of the game. It never helps. They took a TO the possession before and ended up taking a garbage shot

So? They clearly didn't have a good idea of what they were doing, they were lucky to get the shot they did.

Unwatchable. 7 straight fouls called on Gonzaga; went from 3 fouls to putting WVU into the double bonus in 3 mins.

When you call a timeout the defense gets to set itself up too. You're arguing they should have called a TO, yet they ended up getting a pretty good look. A look that was much better than the one they got after taking a TO previously.

A side factor is that if Michigan takes a TO there, the Oregon coach has time to tell his players to use up the rest of their fouls before UM can get a shot off. They only had 3 fouls at the time

Yup. Pboy's never played a sport beyond 4th grade. He doesn't have a clue.

They were lucky to get the shot they did. It was clear they had trouble getting the ball inbounded.

Knowing you, you probably weren't even watching the game. A lot of pundits are criticizing Michigan for that final possession.

Michigan blew it by not blocking out on that foul shot with about a minute and a half to go. Easy two. Game.

Good God the play review in the WVU vs Gonzaga game is ridiculous. This is what kills the NCAA game.

This officiating crew is entirely incompetent. It's an embarrassment

Why inadvertent whistle and not just an overturned call? WVU just lost the possession arrow because of that? That could be huge.
