The refs seem bound and determined to keep this game close.

MBAH A MOUTE!!!

Davis looks tired...Thomas looks confused...LSU backcourt looks overmatched...

UCLA is 20 min from a showdown with Florida on Monday night...

Wow, kiss this game goodbye if Davis can't get his rhythm back - which looks more than possible at this point.

Anyone surprised that for all the excitement of this tournament, these two games have been less than interesting?

I wonder if Adam Morrison is crying right now, knowing that they had a 17 point lead against this team?

Pretty pathetic day of basketball considering all the close, classic ballgames we saw in the 2 previous weekends of March Madness 2006.

UCLA has something like 5 points in the last ten minutes or so, and they're still up by over twenty.

Almost to the end of the second semifinal, and we're not even on page 2 of the thread for me.

I'm glad I didn't fall in the final four bandwagon like some people did and didn't spend money on crap. Around here, there were a lot of people buying final four t-shirts and stuff and the city mayor even named friday purple and gold day.

I think the positive spin fans still have is that well, it's not like LSU would have beat florida. The UCLA v Florida actually might be a good game.

Plus, LSU ladies play tomorrow, so still one team alive...

And so...

...It has come down to this:

Will the final be called:

1. The Mike "I won the pool and won the 'cache' " Golic Special?

2. The Mike "I have to stuff my mouth with a donut and talk and later wear a full leprechan suit before a Notre Dame football game" Greenberg Special?

3. The Jim "I told you so" Rome Special?



(If you're a sports talk radio fan you'll know what I mean. )

That was pretty crappy. We went from having last second finishes, OTs, and amazing upsets, to having two fairly pedestrian games where the higher ranked team lead by double digits for most of the game and then won. George Mason showed only the briefest flashes of life, while LSU never even got out of the locker room.

Talked to my friend who's there this weekend. Said the place is a scalpers worst nightmare. The UCLA and LSU fan turnout was pathetic and Florida should have a huge crowd advantage tomorrow.

Also said he got to see a high major coach commit a blatant recruiting violation by talking to a recruit using the phone of the kids AAU coach

Yeah, Andy Katz said that scalpers were only getting around $180 a ticket for the games last night.

And even that would have been a rip off for the two anti-climatic games last night (stuck watching most of them as the roommate had them on).

I saw that on ESPN2. Walton went on and on and on--it go so bad that Joaquin and Liam--the broadcast engineers for Mike & Mike in the Morning--was sitting in the hosts' chairs for a while! You really have to wonder if this was a deliberate setup....

Boy this final four was so anticlimatic that I'm not even excited over winning money in my pool. I'm guaranteed 2nd, and if UCLA wins I get 75% of the loot. It might have to do with the fact that I'm running my pool and already have the money in hand.
