Well, I’ll say this...

My bracket was busted a long time before his, lol.

It’s been a crazy dance.

Katz of ESPN must be crying that his idol Odumbo didn’t get his bracket right.

Setting up nicely for the Gators to get their revenge, with UConn and Wisconsin already in the Final Four.

If Michigan beats Kentucky, the last three teams to beat Florida will be in the Final Four.

MSU played lousy. I say they deserved to lose, and I’m a big Spartan fan (and alum).

At least there won’t be any distractions here for opening day at Comerica Park tomorrow.

Is anybody keeping track of the losers he picked this year? I think he picked U of A, too.

..........Or rather UConn sending home the last number 1 seed that is FL and maybe just maybe repeating 2004, when both UConn men’s and women’s teams won the championships.

Yeah, well MSU busted my bracket, too.

Now I have a hard decision to make: Do I root for Michigan to win to have a Big Ten team make the final four, or do I root for my second favorite team, anybody who is playing against Michigan?

Mine was mortally wounded last night with Arizona’s loss, and died with MSU today. Wasn’t too hot before but my final four could have been 3/4 intact going into the second game last night. Oh well. Good to see Obama wrong despite that.

There is already one Big 10 team in the Final Four: Wisconsin.

The Wolverines are my arch-rivals, but since the Spartans peed down their legs today, I’m pulling for U of M to go all the way

I say they deserved to lose, and I’m a big Spartan fan

I am too.........UCONN played great!

As an aside note, I'm watching the UM - Kentucky game right now. If you are too, what is the first thing you see when you look at the TV?

Yellow Jerseys! (or maize if you want to be technical)

Which is the most noticeable color out there if you are a defender? YELLOW!

Which is the least noticeable? The blue jerseys of Kentucky.......

How many times in the MSU game did a UCONN player run up court unapposed to receive a long court pass and score?

My point being, you want to wear a school color that is least likely to be seen on the court by your opposing team..........MSU choosing WHITE was a wrong choice........

If I was in charge of court school uniforms, I'd choose a color that would blend in with the basketball crowd.............

I know, that sounds kinda stupid...........

I guess for Michigan, Yellow is White. Surprised the NCAA allows them to wear their yellow uniform.

So who is wearing white in the U of M, Kentucky game?

UCONN Final 4!

Oh boy! I missed the game.

Go Huskies and Kevin Ollie.

I got 2 tickets for Sox opener on Friday. Hope it does not rain. Loge box seats on 1st base line. WS rings will be passed out

This is better than going to Disney Land for me.

Sox and Huskies fan since 1966.

The only reason I want UCONN to win is that they are in the American conference.

Plus also a hopeful repeat of the 2004 year that BOTH the men’s and women’s teams won championships. In this case, it will boost the AAC.

Or light. Memphis colors are blue and gray. Some times we wear light gray at home or the higher seed.

That’s an interesting theory. Maybe it helps to explain why the Spartans this season played better on the road (go Green) than at Breslin (go White).

Speaking of yellow, it, orange and baby powder blue are colors that have no business being on mens’ sports uniforms.

But white uniforms aren’t why MSU lost today. They were dazed and confused for too much of the game. Appling’s careless 3 pt. foul at the end sort of summed up their overall performance.

Kevin Ollie, from the inner city of Los Angeles, was one of Jim Calhoun's first name players to come to UCONN. After a good NBA career, he became an assistant coach to Jim C. Last year, Jim retired and Kevin became coach and he was good last year, but this year they want the NCAA to have egg on its face.

We want to win both like we did in 1999, the only time both champions were from the same university.

I find it extremely difficult to believe that anyone could've had a bracket that wasn't busted by the end of the second round. There were enough upsets in the first round to take out a huge number of people. (Dayton?? Who's Dayton?) The Duke loss would have busted the majority of any remaining brackets.
