I don't watch college hoops anymore because it became oversaturated. I do watch the NCAA Tournament because it is exciting. It gets underway in a few moments. Anyone else watching? Final Four predictions? National Champion? Which team are you rooting for and why? Upsets?

I haven't watched any college bball this year, but I just caught #1 Purdue going down to #16 Fairleigh Dickinson. How awesome is that!.

That was incredible. FDU didn't have a player over 6'5". Love it!

I'm kinda all in on hoping for upsets. Not sure why? But, it's fun to see the big boys like Arizona, Purdue, Virgina, and Xavier go down.

Crazy... FDU didn't win their conference championship... got in because the conference champion was illegible for the tournement because they are transitioning from D2... then FDU had to play in the first four... crazy...

I picked Purdue to go to the final four this year... boy was I wrong... third year in a row that they lost to a double digit seed...

It wasn't FDU it was simply that Purdue Stunk the place up ... JMHO

Agreed. Just like when the Jets beat the Colts in SB 3. Nine out of ten times the Colts would have won. They stunk it up that day.

I think it was poor coaching.

The guards for purdue were clearly struggling
The purdue center is almost a full foot taller than anyone on FDU

The ball should have gone to their center nearly every if not literally every possession.
He should have had 50+ points
Instead the guards just kept firing away from 3

Agreed - they stopped going to him in the second... he should have gotten the ball down low every play..

Depaul used to do it all the time when Ray Meyr was the coach. They would have really good regular seasons with very good talent but when they got in the tournament, they stunk it up and Meyer was a good coach.

I think coaching had a lot to do with it. It was the perfect example of how speed and quickness can be used against a larger, slower team if it's executed properly.


Intoducing for The Cleveland Browns, Quarterback Deshawn "The Predator" Watson. He will also be the one to choose your next head coach.
