Well, that was rude! I got denied in my own thread!
But, but.... I called you !
I am not very smart, but I recognize that I'm not very smart. --- W.W. Hayes
Head says Sparty, heart going with TT.
Should be another banger.
I'm not around that much, running exhausted and lost...
‘Sup fellas. Finally home from prom pictures and dinner.
SCPO, USN (ret)
Damn, prom season already...time is flying.
One day, you’re a screamin’ seamen, the next you’re taking Senior Prom pics.
Did your wife know you went to Prom?
it was crazy seeing half my former soccer team as hs seniors. I’m like “you were just in kindergarten!”
Crazy how quick it goes.
I gotta admit...that was a VERY unusual ending to the Auburn/Virginia game. Refs decided the outcome, intentionally or not.
They missed the double dribble...I sure did.
But the call on the last shot was correct.
Yep. Especially since Guy didn’t initiate the contact like so many other shooter do when the ‘kick out’ leg.
Think Sparty could have a slow start.
Hope this game is as exciting as the last one was.
Fields of Dreams
ACM Awards. Might have to miss that one.
Who is everyone rooting for?
I have Sparty losing to UVA in the final, in my 'ficial bracket.
But I like Tech...such energy and athleticism.
Got Sparty beating UVA in my bracket.
Sparty. I’m just glad Pearl lost.
So say we, all of us.
‘Get yer guns up’ is cooler than ‘Go Sparty’. I’ll admit it.
Bring your 3’s or go home.
Back to the foul on Auburn. It was a foul.
I may feel badly for those Auburn players but not for Pearl. His Tennessee Vols weren't whistled against OSU for fouling Evan Turner at the end of the Sweet 16 game in 2010.
Que será, será...
Once a Buckeye, Always a Buckeye
Lmao because I remember arguing that on here after that game!
Didn't see it, wasn't in that thread. My bad.
Did they say what the gold coin is on Sparty shorts?
I’m pretty sure it is a basketball and throwback to the Magic days. A lot of Nike teams did that (us, Georgetown, UF) this season.
Solid start to the game.
Still thinking about those GoT Oreos.
I'm Whitewalking to the store Monday.
Stop in at the liquor store as well.
They are cashing in on this final season.
Yep. Adidas has GoT sneakers as well.
They are a bit underwhelming though.
JW WW blend?
Sparty looks a little disheveled, need to settle.
I think I might weigh more than #11 for Texas Tech. He’s probably more than a foot taller than me too.
Maybe lay off the GoT Oreos.
3 the hard way
That dude, literally, using his head
Texas is well-represented tonight. In men's basketball.
Monday..... I’m all over those.
Lol... did he say Freaky Francis? I got a sea story about a dude with that name.
I don't know if he said that but I would like to hear this story
He was a Sailor and male escort for elderly ladies. I’ll stop there.
How gentlemanly of him to escort old ladies around
Speaking of Mahomes. I guess he just signed a big contract with Oakley. My next door neighbor is an engineer there. Guess they all got to meet him. He’s not much of a sports guy, so he said he got to meet some scrawny guy. He was ‘mvp of nfl or something’.
Did he say anything about his voice?
I’ll ask him next time I see him.
Nice. I remember reading about Lance Armstrong’s team and how they ran through Oakleys during training. I was like damn! Those are $200 each!
Mahomes is pretty cool. There was a pic of him wearing a Navy Chief hat that said “Kansas City Chief” with an anchor while doing Home rehabs for a veterans group.
We got a game here for sure
Buy the ticket take the ride.
Site painfully slow for anyone else?
no, not here KB
Good here as well.
Weird. Not my WiFi because everything else ok. But couple times now I’ve gotten the time out pop up.
Winston is pretty good.
#23 for Sparty was just in the lane for like 8 seconds. Sheesh.
And I think he is moving his pivot foot.
If he had the ball for 3 of those seconds, in the middle, it’s fine.
If I squint my eyes I can pretend Tech is actually the Buckeyes...
I wish we played D that tough.
Or had that level of energy...
Holtmann will get them there, hopefully soon.
Brown has to hit one sooner or later.
Some wild play out on the floor, Sparty now in the bonus.
Can’t hit a ft though.
What up everyone - finally climbing on board to watch Sparty and TT
Go get'em Cal Poppy - we are behind you !!
It's not a rivalry .............. it's a wreckoning.
What’s for breakfast?
Took Mrs Linga out for breakfast/lunch ended up munching on a club sammy.
Wife got a mimosa FTW
Funny Guy LOL
Your old mind never fails.
Just in time, SL. Almost all time zones covered now.
Life comes at you fast sometimes GTH.
Brick City...Brick City Nights.
That’s iconic for how the last couple minutes have gone.
First one to fifty wins
Izzo has to do some player rotations out there. His starters are gassed.
I appreciate the NCAA continuing to use different Final Four logos. I hate that the NFL stopped.
They can’t afford it.
Lettin' it all hang out.
Two missed front ends.
You guys want to laugh? I played one year of HS baseball and got 1 recruiting letter. From who?
Sparty. My batting average was .000. When I got the letter I thought “those guys must suck”
Maybe they wanted you as a Team Manager.
Oh, what might have been, Chief.
0/1 my Freshman year, sat out my Sophomore year, quit my Junior year.
Thank God for the Navy.
It’s not like your avg would’ve gotten any worse
We (jv) did win city my Freshman year. I never got the t-shirt I paid $10 for, but our coach got new tires.
Win city. Get tires. Got it...
Terrible clock management.
QUAID gun shy after the air ball
Tech playing some great defense.
Auburn will probably kill the winner of this game on Monday night.
Good call NHB
Duke would beat all of them. Usually.
Don't forget Kansas my man
The third place game is usually tough.
I didn't know the FF was still doing a consolation game. Or am I just being obtuse?
It was a bad joke on my part.
I'm just slow tonight.
Auburn will would probably kill the winner of this game on Monday night.
FIFY, unless /s was meant.
/s was meant.
My bad. Swing and a miss.
Thanks for the analysis, Steven A. Smith.
Gotta tip my hat to Texas Tech. Their players are fierce and frenetic defenders on the ball out there. The Red Raiders are giving Sparty hell. I don't think MSU can keep up with TT in the second half.
Culver has 1 pt. If he gets going Sparty will be in trouble.
AKA the Horseshoe, the Shoe, and the House That Harley Built
Ernie just said this had been a ‘3 yards and a cloud of dust’ game. Nice!!
He's really not that far off either
I'll never be a devout hoops guy (change my mind, Buckeyes), but this has been one helluva entertaining tourney...the Elite Eight on have been phenomenal.
Nothing beats the NCAA Tourney.
Well, until the Browns win the Super Bowl. That’s gonna be lit.
I can't even process that celebration...
These AT&T spots, every friggin' break, have been just ok.
Where art thou, Lily?
Gearing up for the second half.
In N Out protein style.
Wondered where you wandered off to.
This is the greatest thing I've ever seen. https://t.co/gdbSNzzgEk

If you laugh, you think, and you cry, that's a full day. That's a heck of a day. You do that seven days a week, you're going to have something special.
What? No toilet paper on the trees???
HAHAHA!! That’s awesome.
Also, Some dude poured a beer on his head inside the game thinking they won. He got arrested afterwards. It’s on Twitter I’ll post later
I felt a little bad until they started chanting.
That might be the style. In Florida.
Sparty getting pushed around.
Good Lord, but there's some hatchets out there. No fouls. At all.
That's not good.
Damn. Knee and ankle.
Gosh, I cringe every time I see an ankle injury like that. I used to have that happen to me a lot playing sports.
Man. Trainer shouldn’t let him walk on that until they check him out.
I have not seen a Michigan State team pushed around like this in a long time.
Where was the foul there? That was weak shit for as much as they have let go.
Dude...Mooney has been money.
Tech trying to deliver a knockout.
Something UVA couldn’t do
Can't believe the escapes UVA has had in this Big Dance.
I don't think TT would let them off the hook.
That was NBA trey right there.
I got a Trey for you...
Posting such would be off topic, and may result in the comment getting Anatasio'd.
Yeah, and, I’d be a Character Zero if I did
Can’t help but to root for Moretti TT
MSU has no answer.
Holy shit! Mooney is on fire.
Dude looks like he could play football
It’s over.(I think)
Sparty confused. Discombobulated
Remember when we went a whole second half without scoring against Sparty....
You got to make the bunnies.
Watch the Tech drives. Lots of pushing off.
Just carving up Sparty D
Wow...good for Owens.
If Texas Tech Basketball defense joined forces with Texas Tech Football offense they could win the Stanley Cup.

Sparty making this a game now.
Only way Sparty can get back in this game now is to get constant stoppages of play, get fouled, go to the line, make points, make stops. The clock is now their enemy.
Feel bad for McQuaid if that's that ankle.
My guess is that McQuaid is cramping. You see him pound the GU or energy gel?
I didn't, but have noticed he's stood up at the bench a couple times since...no trainer near him.
Edit - Hes coming back in.
I truly did not know anyone but runners used Gu.
They could probably call a few more fouls on TT
Sparty is gonna win this game.
I’ll take bets on that
Can’t buy nuttin with that.
I’ll give you 2 to 1 odds
Well that 3 changed everything. Sparty had all the Mo until that.
Izzo about to fizzle.
That was nice.
Oh wow! Huge shot.
Game over man, game over.
Guns Up, Texas Tech.
Sparty had a good run, and I'll forever be in their debt for taking out Duke.
Great night of hoops...good times, all.
I think it'll be a heckuva matchup Monday night between Virginia's rope-a-dope offense and Texas Tech's swarming, stifling defense.
Well I correctly picked both winners today. Tech and Auburn. Auburn got robbed, so that doesn’t count against me. I rule.
Who ya got on Monday? I’m gonna go with Tech. 67-62.
Just call you Carnac the Magnificent. ;-)
Tech plays unbelievable defense. I actually think it's going to be even lower. Something like 52-45. It's gonna be ugly for sure.
Izzo is such a crybaby. He actually makes me want to watch MSU lose games. This is going to be a slow, plodding final. I can see either team winning, but man TT plays smothering defense and I think that gives them the edge.
Gonna call it a night. Closing shop.
Go BasketBucks. Next Season, by Brutus.
