Unfair...sure, but it is what it is. We don't talk about stuff like that, better swept under the rug.
To be fair, I talked about it in the 2015 off-season thread.

It seems a little unfair to allow one NCAA college basketball team to have all these games of competition and team building and extended practices while no other team can even begin practice until October. Seems like an unfair advantage, but as a KU fan, I can live with it.
Hope you're right about KU-Nova. That one looms large in my mind. Just read that Self as a coach, has a 7-1 record in the S16 as the higher seed (losing only in that collapse against Michigan in 2013), but is 1-4 in the E8 as the higher seed (they beat #1 UNC as a 2 seed in 2012).

For the first time in eight NCAA Tournaments, a night of Sweet 16 games featured every game being decided by double digits.

The last time this happened was 2008, which was also the one and only time all four No. 1 seeds reached the Final Four.

Marcus Paige on fire early. 4 3-pointers before the first media time-out.

IU fans are outraged about the officiating.

I think NC shooting 60+% and 10-12 from 3-point range has more to do with them being down.

4 sweet 16 victories in the same day by one conference.

Hard to imagine that's been done before.

Which will ensure an ACC team makes the championship game... Hope it's the Wahoos

F You Wisky. Terrible last 26 seconds. Up 3 to losing by 5. Ugh.

At least Cuse paid for me.

Without even getting a single shot off, IIRC. They got farther than anybody expected after Bo retired, but that's a pathetic way to lose. Future doesn't look so bad either, as they lose nobody really, unless Hayes decides to leave.

That's what's super bizarre to me. You chastise a kid (for something that's really not a problem, he took a shot at the end of the shot clock, there were still 8 seconds on the game clock), he owns up to it and says you were right and he'll learn from it, and then you call the kid a liar? Why? Just a terrible look.

Re: College Hoops Postseason 2016 (NCAAs, NIT, etc.)

some interesting futures I'm finding for winning it all this morning:

UNC +275
Kansas +325
Virginia +350
Oklahoma +750
Oregon +750
Villanova +800
Syracuse +2500
NotreDame +2500

I'm thinkin thats a good bet for the UNC chalk. But, I also feel like Nova has an opportunity to meet them in the finals...

What do you guys think?

Tough game tonight, but I think the best value there is Nova +800. The ratings before the S16 essentially had them and KU with nearly the same chance of winning it all. KU's odds are way too short. They may be the best team but they have the toughest road (besides Nova). UNC and UVA's ratings are short because they essentially have byes this round.

Speaking of gambling, the favorites went 7-1 ATS in the S16. And the one dog that covered, Cuse, had heavier action in Vegas. The books took a beating the last 2 nights.

E8 lines:

ORE -1, 153
KU -2.5, 144.5
UVA -8, 124
UNC -10, -155.5

Kind of like Wisconsin last year in the Elite 8, when the 3s are raining like they are there's not much you can do. Especially when your star doesn't show up and your rebounding woes catch up to you.

Luckily for me, there are a boatload of close college hockey games today/tonight.

But yeah, amazing how lopsided almost all of the games have been so far this weekend.

Impressive job by OU. Not crazy about them in a large dome setting against a top team.

That should have been your championship game right there.

Wow tough one from beginning to end.

I was driving across the desert for almost the entire game. Only caught the final 5 minutes. The Jayhawks put up a fight and lost to an excellent team, that's the way to go down I suppose. Looks like a very close game with near identical FG and 3 pt percentages. Difference was Nova hit 16 of 17 FTs. Hey, more power to them for that. Breaks my heart to say goodbye to this team and at least Ellis, but it was much more tolerable than flame outs against Stanford and Wichita State.

I should have taken Under 122.
