still "Game time decision" .... he better be able to go.

If Tech and Duke win today I will have correctly predicted the final four for the first time in my 20+ year history of filling out brackets. Obviously the first year I did one for my dad's office pool when I was in Junior High, I didn't do so good with my pick of Alcorn State to go all the way I don't know why I remember that...couldn't tell you I picked any other year (except Oklahoma - bastards!)....but I've had a fondness for Alcorn State ever since...as if their success in some form will somehow redeem my childhood fancifullness....

elder said an injury kept him out of and cost his team a state tournament.. so he will try his best to play
but that doesnt sound too promising for what type of performance to expect out of him.. and alot of times, will have the opposite reaction if he cant perform and holds his team back

Well the key to the Duke game is Williams and Deng. If this turns into a battle of the guards, Xavier can certainly hang with Duke. The difference btwn this Duke team and ones in recent years (where they have not advanced far into the tourney) is their inside game and interior defense/rebounding. If those facets of their game are prominently on display, then, yeah, it could be blow-out city.

I am definitely pulling for the Jackets since I have them losing to UConn in the finals (and the guy I am neck and neck with at the top of my pool has OSU winning it all).

I have Duke in the Final Four losing to UConn. However, it might be more advantageous for me for Duke to lose because 1) makes for an easier road for UConn, 2) I can't imagine that anyone in my pool has X in the Final Four, and 3) it effectively takes out all the Duke-Champion pickers.

I'm a Xavier fan today. Also pulling for Tech, who are the only other ACC team I can stand (besides Carolina, of course).

With that said, I expect Kansas and dook to advance. No way Elder is anywhere near 100%, and they definately need him to be in order to win. After watching Kansas look awful a couple times in January, I would have NEVER thought they would make it this far.

Looks like GT watched the tape of the Illinois/ND tournamnet game from last year the way they're defending the hi-lo.

How is it a ref can call a foul when he's being blocked by the players' bodies while the ref right there staring at it doesn't make a call

This is a crazy uptempo game so far, and I expect GT to stay with it because Kansas's half-court game is probably too good to defend if the tempo slows down.

CBS execs won't have anything left for tonight's Britney concert if they don't stop masturbating over Duhon.

What's the over/under on the number of times they bring up Duhon's ribs during the Duke game?
