College sports discussion.
Anybody else watching this afternoon? Haven't seen anyone talking about the games.
Duke is getting all they can handle from Mercer.

That's because everyones bracket got them feelin some type of way.
That is when you turn to rooting for mayhem.
15/16 before Duke totally shat the bed today.
Same with me. In 2 of my polls, they weren't going past the Sweet 16 so not a total loss, but I had them in the Final Four in my last one so that hurts. But most people had them in the Sweet 16 too or further so it's not totally awful...except 1 guy who had Mercer winning that game...WTF?
Duke goes down, Duke goes down!
I saw a UFO once.......it told me to have a goodyear!
Couldn't have happened to a nicer team
I've lost (in my bracket) every single close game or OT game so far.
Duke going down is better then my second or third favorites winning.
I speak the truth but I guess that's a foreign language to yall.~~Lil Wayne
Who the heck is calling this Stanford/New Mexico game??
They are turrible.
**EDIT** -- Figured it out... It's Greg Anthony. He's so bad.
The first man gets the Oyster, the second man gets the shell.
The 'official' review stinks. In this Stanford game, they gave the ball to New Mexico after what looked like Stanford knocked it out. After review, it was reversed. But the review CLEARLY showed Stanford hacked the NM player which caused the ball to go out. But you can't call a foul on review. So the make-up call instead of the hack is overturned.
Stanford basketball plays Stanford football.
And gets away with it.

The Lowes commercial with the falling ceiling fan is fantastic.
These games have been weird today. At least the Duke v Mercer game was rather entertaining. Hopefully they pick up tonight while I sit at home and work on building a website. I need something to keep from losing it after sitting an office all day long doing stuff for my actual job...aka sifting through 11W all day long.
Wow, 4 point play from SFA to take VCU to OT.
If Shannon Scott has taught me anything, stupid fouls will kill you.
The VCU one was really dumb. Shouldn't have been near him.
This #2 for VCU is not a smart player.
Wow, three 12 seeds advance.
Wow. Awesome game... This year has been full of them so far.
Virginia is down 5 at the half...........
Coastal Carolina up 5 at the half.
Thank goodness Barkley wasn't in studio. I would have heard for the 3rd time it was the first true upset of the tournament.
UVA up 1. CC starting to take bad shots.
Already down to only ten minutes left and still a one point game. This might already be history.
Pretty sure Princeton took Georgetown to the wire in the mid 80s.
I missed that, thanks...and of course UVA started to pull away the second I posted that bit of nonsense.
I think Coastal Carolina just had them perplexed for a while with these uniforms.
Is it me, or does it look like CC is going to turn the ball over on every possession?
Very impressive defensive performance for Florida today.
The most "loud mouth, disrespect" poster on 11W.
Man, this flagrant foul rule is also terrible. I sure hope it doesn't alter the outcome of a game. I mean, if I'm coaching, I'm telling my kids to put their chin in every players space. If they get contact , two shots. & ball.
It's Saturday and I'm watching the OHSAA state championship games.
Giving the kids their due.

@11W: Tonight: OSU men's hockey in the B1G championship (8p/BTN) and wrestlers Logan Stieber and Nick Heflin go for NCAA titles (8p/ESPN).
This Louisville/StLouis game is painful to watch. 3/13 and 3/14 from the field. Six buckets TOTAL in 14 minutes.
Painful is just the beginning of description
Is that Jamie Bosley playing SG for Texas?
If it wasn't for the score, I would swear Michigan is down in this game. Look terrible, yet up double digits.
Texas is terrible. Not athletic at all.
Except they're hitting the threes again, and outrebounding Texas. Other than that they look terrible.
Only way Texas wins isif scUM gets stupid and takes bad, quick shots lie thy did against us.
How is this fat guard for Texas a D1 player?
There is a lot of beef on that team.
Except for #2. Check out those chicken legs
Hey Texas. Michigan can shoot the 3. FYI.
#3 for TX can't get his big ass around screens.
Morgan has perfected that 'leaning' screen.
Texas better get something going or they're going to get run off the court.
Buckeyes Hockey goes up 2-0 in first period!
Toggling between the hockey and wrestling
Heflin lost a tough match to a true freshman from Mizz - video replay showed Heflins takedown at the end was too late
Wow. So F*ing close. I thought he had the takedown.
Weak ass roughing call leads Wisky to pp to tie it up.
But Bucks come right back. 3-2.
Arhie Miller has a hot wife.
Wow. Wisky just caught fire.
Hockey Bucks score! Up 4-2
Wisky comes right back. 4-3.
Wrestling Buck Stieber wins 3rd Natl Title
Wichita St v Kentucky is already a hell of a game.
No question if there were any lingering ... Wichita St can play.
I don't know about making that declaration already, UK has had a lot of trouble this season and they're an 8 seed. They have talent but they don't play solid team D, and they're careless with the ball. That's why this game is close.
I surely can make the statement. Both teams are really good and playing really well today.
I agree completely that both teams played their games well today. But once Kentucky stopped turning the ball over (which they've done all year) the game went their way most of the 2nd half. Wichita without hitting those 4 tough 3's in the 2nd get buried in that game.
Wichita St is a good team, they aren't a great team, Kentucky isn't a great team, but they were always good enough to win this game. Too big and too individually talented.
Kentucky could have played a lot better for stretches, I don't know that the same could be said to the same degree for Wichita St.
Not sure what game you watched. Those were 2 excellent teams on the floor today. Those are 5 freshman playing for UK, so you can't go off what you saw earlier this year. I wouldn't want to play them right now.
Early's dunk at 46 seconds. WOW.
I don't understand how that's a foul on Cauley-Stein. If anything that's an offensive foul.
Didn't see that, but it seems like Kentucky is getting the calls their way in the second half. They just took the lead 48-46 and they have the ball.
Man, Early is good. Dude can ball. Saw him in Elite 8 last year and he's gotten better.
That Baker kid is deadly too.
Off the glass too!
Best game I've seen since the final last year. Of course I only watch the Buckeyes until tourney time.
Why does it feel like Shockers are getting called for ticky-tack touch fouls?
Umm...because Kentucky isn't?
Because UK takes it strong to the rack. Something we are not used to seeing.
So many good games this year.
Smart play by Baker.
OK, here's your game...will it be Early or Baker taking the shot?
I'd want Early.
The fact that neither took it was a shocker, no pun.
I thought it had to be Early without a doubt, the kid hit everything he looked at. Stagger like 3 screens for him and get him the ball and let him do whatever he wanted.
Questionable last shot. If that's your shot, get your body set.
Sold out on 3 rather than 2, also. And not sure why Early doesn't see the ball there.
I was thinking they would go for two. Oh well.
I don't like UK.
I think a team that's that much smaller than the team they're playing has to settle for a jumper with that much time left. And an inbound from there the best look they're going to get is a 3.
You're right on all counts. And Kentucky defended it well.
UK win so I can stop clamoring what a good game that was.
It also puts 2 SEC teams in Sweet 16. Was hoping for none...
The B1G still has 3, and either way it isn't going to affect the football coverage sadly.
Yeah...& Tenn could make 3 for SEC. Who isn't supposed to be a bball conference.
Crazy game But I wish the three was hit at the end - such is life
After watching the garbage we put on the floor all year, we deserved to see a game like that.
Kentucky almost haunted by the ghost of Christian Laettner? If that last shot had gone in...
Pretty good weekend of basketball, particularly today. I'm still holding strong with 2 brackets too and have 7 of my Final Four teams from the 2 polls intact (assuming AZ holds onto this lead even though it's at halftime as I type this).

While the Louisville tempo was uncomfortable for UK for a while, it's getting sloppy and they are going to let UK back in it.
I hear ya and I don't like it. Need to shut the Cat fans up
Calipari is up to his old tricks - Screaming at the refs and walking on the court.
Randle is a man.
Fucking Kentucky. Russ Smith for Louisville is out of control.
