NCAA March Madness

Postby Son of Butch » Thu Mar 16, 2017 11:43 am

Well the fix is in...
5 Minnesota (24-9)
12 Middle Tennessee State (30-4)

Minnesota is a 5 seed and should have been flipped with number 7 Michigan (24-11)
Michigan lost at Minnesota in overtime by 1 pt just a few weeks ago on a bad call by ref near the end of overtime..
Anyway it almost guarantees 12 seed Middle Tennessee State another big ten "upset" vs Over Seeded Minnesota.
M. Tennesee is 30-4 and ya gotta respect any team that has won 30 games.

Last Year M. Tenn a 15 pulled off one of the biggest upsets in tournament history beating number 2 Michigan State
in the opening round.

Trivia..... of the 68 teams in this year's tourney, 34 of them did not play in last year's tournament.
The only sure thing is there are going to be some exciting games ahead.

Does anyone else have any other "Guaranteed Lead Pipe Cinch" upset picks?

No. I rarely get that involved in bracketology but I do have a funnie.

I have a lot of Ky folks on my Facebook. It has been a wild week. People changing their profile page to all blue, praying for Kentucky to win and the best of all: several of the more conservative fans want Ashley Judd barred from UK games because she spoke at a woman's rally advocating that women be treated as fairly as men. I might be a little off base on the exact grievance. But it demonstrates how crazy people are about their sports and their politics.

One of the biggest idiots I know is a UK fanatic.
I felt obligated a couple of seasons ago to do a "Safety Check" on him when they got knocked out.
But even he has no delusions about Kentucky's chances this year.

I just googled Ashley Judd. I got the above information through a timeline feed from a Facebook friend. My information is limited but I did find some links to stories about the hostilities toward her. Here is an excerpt:

Actress Ashley Judd wrote a lengthy Facebook post recounting an "uncomfortable" encounter with a Trump supporter at a NCAA basketball game over the weekend.

During the Women's March on Washington, Judd famously recited a poem called "Nasty Woman," referencing President Trump's retort toward Hillary Clinton in a debate.

"I'm as nasty as a man who looks like he bathes in Cheetos dust," Judd said at the time, adding that she felt Hitler "traded his mustache for a toupee."

Judd, an avid Kentucky Wildcats fan, was in Nashville, Tenn. to watch her team play in the semi-finals when a man asked to take a picture with her.

The man told her he was from Big Stone Gap, Va., the location and title of one of Judd's latest films.

Maybe, I don't follow her but if UK starts barring every "certifiable dumb azz" from basketball games, revenue will not cover the cost of replacement goal nets. Lol

NCAA committee got one of the day one "Upsets" they wanted when fixing a Very Very Weak 5 vs an Extra Strong 12

Hope you all got as rich as me betting the farm on my Middle Tennessee Lead Pipe Cinch that I so graciously shared.
So.... what gifts do ya all have for me? :)

Answer me this, why is (was) the play in round 16 seeds playing 16 seeds and then 11 seeds playing 11 seeds? Seems like it should have been 16 playing 15 in each division. I know that means the 2 seed now plays 14 and so on, just didn't make sense to me. Also I agree on the mess up on the seeds, 30-4 was a 12th who beat a 24-9 5th seed....should have never happened.
