It amazes me that in the West 5/12 game, Cuse is only giving 2. I was originally going to bet BYU straight up if there was value there but I might turn around and bet Cuse giving only a couple.

So far, I've got St Joe's -24 and Manhattan +210.


GO TERPS! FEAR THE TURTLE!

2 of the 4 games being shown locally are pretty lame...Wake/VCU (I guess this is considered local interest, sort of) and Duke/Alabama State. I wish we were getting Cuse/BYU and Texas/Princeton.

Normally, I would hit the sports bar, but this dog has been feeling under the weather this week. Still cannot understand why CBS does not offer the PPV package for the digital cable - they would clean up. I really wish ESPN carried the first few rounds so they could multicast it on their various outlets.

The other 2 games we get are MD/UTEP of course and UNC/Air Force.

I'm not too thrilled with the games we get here in Philly. Maryland-UTEP... Liberty-St. Joe's (of course), Princeton-Texas, and Air Force-UNC. At least I like the last game. I like Princeton-Texas as well, but I'm in class til 9:45 on Thursdays.

My first bet of this tournament is a 4 point teaser...

St. Joe's -20
Syracuse +1.5
Southern Illinois +6.5
Pittsburgh -10

CBS needs to do a better job of bouncing around and switching off bad games than they have in the past. If we even see more than a minute of the 2nd half of the Duke game, I'll be pissed.

Nice one -- I just got a call that I have a ticket to tonight's games in Raleigh, gratis.

I hope that Seton Hall mops the floor with Arizona! Should be a good game.
