I'm getting Kentucky-Marquette like most of you, and keep the comments coming.
Is anyone else really disappointed with the MMOD? i think the picture quality is absolutely terrible. i know, don't complain about something that's free, but hey.. (Via Vic)
Yeah it was much better last year.
Is it just me or is Carter Blackburn sounding a lot like Mike Adamele. I am half expecting him to announce Dominic James having to go through Gemini and Nitro in Breakthrough and Conquer. (Via AR)
Does Jay Bilas ever stop talking?
When's the CBI live blog? (Via StalkingErinAndrews)
When is Richmond vs. Virginia???
Anybody see that in the Baylor game? dude just threw it up, not down...never seen that before guess it doesn't count if you make the basket from the bottom of the goal. (Via JD)
Yeah that was completely random. And Kent State with 10 points in the first half. Unbelivable.
Okay...your choice of joke....
A) Is that Topher Grace?
B) Is it take your kid to work day?
Thank you....thank you.
AA, picking Georgia over Xavier? Tsk tsk those trendy picks will get you nowhere! *goes back to watching Baylor get blown out*...goddamnit (Via JD)
Haha...I picked Baylor too. I suck.
Where's Enberg? (Via Mal)
He gets very tired these days. Must take breaks.
"When you give the guy the ball with the shot clock running down it is like handing him a hand grenade with the pin pulled out".- Jay Bilas (Via Mal)
What's everybody drinking today? How's that for a conversation starter? Bud Light. Go. (Via JD)
Just got some Red Bulls for my Vodka. Trying to turn this up a notch.
"They're going to have to do it over Joe Crawford who's played like Two and a Half Men."- Jay Bilas
Oh my god....that is so bad.
Is there a worse time to "win" a jump ball than with 1 second on the shot clock? You're going to turn it over anyway, might as well keep the arrow. (Via Spartan Dan)
I couldn't think of one. You probably shouldn't even jump....although I did see someone tip in a jump before. Also, HD seemed to be on the fritz but it's back now. That would have ruined my day.
I know I've given Mr. Carter Blackburn, esquire, a bit of a tough time here. But, he's pretty decent. He doesn't take away from the game. He doesn't talk over Bilas - which is tough because Bilas likes to talk. Not bad, Mr. Carter Blackburn. (Via Mal)
I agree. He wasn't bad at all (although he looks five) and actually made me enjoy Bilas a bit. So Pitt, Purdue, and Marquette look to be moving on. Can someone say chalk?
Here's just about the only highlight of the day.....
"What a run by the Giants. Eli and company."- Craig Bolerjack
Anyone hear about that? The Super Bowl???
Who's got USC/KSU? Nantz/Packer or Lundquist/Raftery? (Via Mike)
Kevin Harlan and Dan Bonner
