K-State dude took too many trolly rides in the 'burgh

The last time St. Patty's was on a Saturday and we were in the "second" round we played Xavier. 

I hope it doesn't come down to it but who is most likely to be our "Ron Lewis" today?

Barkley callin Sully out, and I agree with his assesment. He needs to go HAM today.

Craft shutting down their guard will be the difference.

Let your hobbies and interests supplement your life, not be the main course.

This Murray State vs Marquette game has been pretty good. Eventhough both teams at times played undisciplined. 

Wisky is a Wisky game about like a root canal. Bo and Badgers definitely has their hads full with Vandy. 

Indiana has come out with some nice shots and vcu is stingy.

Wow vcu has forced 222+ turn overs this season. 


VCU D was causing some headaches there for Indiana.

Usually around this time I get completely basketball'd out.  Apparently, 2 Guinnesses keeps you into it.  St. Paddy's needs to fall on NCAA Saturday more often.

Teams outside the B1G don't understand how truly frustrating playing Wisky is until March.

It's like chinese water torture.

I find it hilarious when opposing non-conference fans start watching a game against Wisconsin. For us, it's normal. We expect Wisky to be, well, Wisky. They are painfully amazed each time.

^ combined with a root canal 


Good job Wisky!

Anyone else think Tom Crean looks like Dwight Schrute?


"You're pissed because we went after a committed guy? Guess what, we got 9 guys who better go do it again," said Meyer. "Do it a little harder next time."

I'm so pissed I didn't see that. My love of Schrute being what it is

Fundamentals are a crutch for the talentless.

A very good look just short.

Good game between VCU and Indiana!

Respect Smart as a coach. Crean on the other hand......

Three B1G teams in the sweet 16 so far!

If Iowa State wins my brackets get recycled.

Other than Joakim Noah, Anthony Davis is the ugliest dude ever.

UK is just too tough inside for IAST. 

IAST is cold from downtown not looking good for them.

You can stick a fork in ISU. Too much dependance on one player.

UK is putting on a shooting clinic right now. 


Ugh Baylor with those unis. 

TheHumbleBuckeye's picture

I remember another overall number 1 seed that put on a shooting clinic in the second round that seemingly looked unstoppable, until they were ousted by a 4-seed the next week. It was only a year ago. Here's hoping IU can make history repeat and get some revenge for the Bucks!

I don't see it for IU next week.  I know they beat UK once but I think that's exactly why they don't.  They are going to get a focused UK team that is pissed off and ready to get revenge.  I wouldn't be surprised if they crush Indiana.  I hope IU pulls it off, but at this point I just can't see anyone stopping UK before the final four in that region.

Western tsun just beat them for the CCHA title.
