    This A&M/Houston game is a barn burner. Aggies are killing themselves with their terrible FT shooting.
    Jay Wright said the physical nature of the play is making it hard to officiate, said they could have called double the # of fouls. As it is the thin Houston Cougars are in foul trouble.

    If you didn't hang in there and watch the UH/A&M game to the end, you missed probably the most exciting game of the weekend. Coogs blew a 13 point lead and Ag's make a 3 at time expired in the game to send it to OT.

    Houston had 4 of their 5 starters foul out. They had to rely on a walk-on to make a FT to help seal the game.

    Both teams had to be exhausted, it was played at a phrentic pace.

    Hell of a game. Play was very physical, and yet A&M managed a stunning comeback to force OT. The 3 to tie at the end of regulation was wild.

    ACC shined in the 1st round, getting 4 teams into the Sweet 16, only UVA did not make it. The Big East has all 3 of it's selections and is undefeated. SEC, B12 and Big 10 each have 2.

    Lots of points still out there. As poorly as I did on the lower rounds, I still have 7/8 of my Elite Eight teams left. Looking at potential points for everybody, it seems as if most everybody still has a lot left.

    Dang Stu, you need some good news! One of my regular golf buddies just had that ablation done, good luck and quick recovery. Most of all I hope it takes care of the problem.

    Pretty impressive for the Boilermakers. But I am surprised that Purdue played that many teams in the Sweet 16.

    I see that Michael Ryckman is given a 36% chance of winning the contest, Corey is the next closest at 16 %.

    Me I have a less than 1% chance of winning. :(
