NCAA basketball: who are you rooting for?

  1. Mar 20, 2014 #1
    Games start today. I've got my Milwaukee Panthers and Wisconsin Badgers in the tournament. Feeling pretty excited. I love this time of year! Anyone else watching and rooting?

    I'm rooting for whoever I picked in the bracket thing for me to win 500 million dollars. I don't watch sports, so if I get them right, it'll be pure luck.

    I'm pulling for Michigan, as usual. Go Blue! Tonight they're playing the same small college (Wofford) that gave Wisconsin a bit of a scare a few years ago.

    Outside of conference play, I always root for Big Ten! :)

    Well there are 10 team in the Big Twelve. Rock Chalk, Jayhawk go KU.

    I'm waiting to hear this in the tournament:

    After Michigan, I go with Ohio State, then any other Big Ten schools that are still standing.

    And 12 teams in the Big Ten. :rolleyes:

    Unfortunately that pleasing symmetry will end this fall when Rutgers and Maryland join the Big Ten.

    Living in Tucson I go with the University of Arizona Wildcats. These guys are capable of winning it all. That doesn't mean that they will. For some reason they have hot and cold streaks that they should not be having at this point.

    The team has a great defense, but a lousy record on free throws.

    The kid, Sean Miller, in the video below is now the AZ coach.

    Wow, Ohio State got knocked out already! At least it was by another team from Ohio (Dayton).

    Not that there ever was any doubt but Buffett will hang on to his billion dollars. There are already no perfect brackets remaining in his contest.

    My favorite (UK-centric) description of basketball: It's like water polo, but without the water.

    You realize that's a very American expression, right?
    (It means something rather different in certain other cultures.)

    Huh? No, that's in a different fibre of the multiverse -- a mythical(?) place where (apparently) women blow and men chunder.
    Best avoided.

    Beware the PAC 12 :eek: and possibly Dayton.

    For some reason, I missed your post Borg. The Buffett prize, which I knew nothing of, came up among guest at a little basketball game viewing get-to-gether. Luckily there's Sensory Memory (must be longer than just a few seconds IMO) and knew just where too look.

    I've seen enough unlikely upsets to never rule anyone out, so I'm still rooting for Duke.
