I can see I'm not alone. I'm not nearly the college basketball fan I used to be to begin with but this year's NCAA tournament seems to be particularly boring.

But for me I think part of that is that for some reason I've evolved into thinking that basketball is kind of a boring sport. Kind of the opposite of soccer but boring. It's like if it's a basketball game just tune in for the last two minutes or so for the bottom line.
Well, I believe that I must tell the truth
And say things as they really are
But if I told the truth and nothing but the truth
Could I ever be a star?

Thats probably because Trump is white and doesn't spend time filling out brackets like the previous baller did.

Michigan got #wrecked. Damn that dismantling was fun to watch. Especially since the guy I lost a bottle of gin to on the Montana/Michigan game is a huge Michigan fan and bet me double or nothing on the Tech game.

Auburn gives me one correct guess for the last 4 playing teams.

Edit: MSU gave me a second!

Hoping for an Auburn-Texas Tech final. So we’ll probably get VA-MSU.

Any combination of the four will be fine with me. Nice to see older (relatively) teams, that focus so much on defense make it this far. The one and done heavy teams seem to get all the media focus.

I don‘t don‘t watch any college basketball ecxept for some of the NCAA tournament and maybe a little JMU (in the once in a while rare season when they don‘t suck). Every year at the NCAA tournament they have this CBS announcer (Raferty? I think). He does these utterances, esp at the start of the game, where I can‘t even tell wtf he is saying. Its not ebonics- he‘s an old white guy. Its sounds like gibberish. Does he have tourettes?

Summit Transfer from South Dakota, Mooney, is doing pretty good.

I may be wrong, but I think this is the first time since 1979 (Michigan State vs Indiana State) that the championship is being played by two teams making their first appearances there.
