Re: The 2019 NCAA Tournament

Like to see you guys get by UCF.
Then you need to bring Mo Alie-Cox back (maybe hide his hair and pretend he's a walk on) to match him up against Zion.

Rothstein took his unlikeability up a notch.

Is Evans going to play? Those of us who wager on these types of events need to know.

Like that we are in the East, but only 1 team can make it to the sweet sixteen. Odd that they put both teams in the same bracket.

Right now this is the take on Evans.

From VCU you will hear the phrase Day to Day all this week. When the team arrived back to Richmond he was taken from the plane to the doctor for his MRI and then he went directly into treatment. Yesterday he was on the court for shoot around. From what I hear he does not have swelling. It is a pain tolerance issue at this point. VCU definitely needs him because without him as the floor general the team is squirrelly on both ends of the court.

Monday is always hectic for planning on my end. I have the hotel booked, Friday tickets and permission by my wife to pull my son out of school to go with me. Now, I have to decide whether to wait for Saturday to score Sunday tickets or pull the trigger. I hate purchasing tickets without knowing whether VCU will be playing. Sunday will be a tough ticket due to Duke and Virginia playing (unless Gardner-Webb pulls a UMBC)

The cartel.

It's bullshit and I firmly believe the committee is doing some of this purposefully. Almost like they looked at it and said, well they only deserved 1 team anyway, so that's all they're going to have possible out of round 2.

I thought a few years back the rule was conference mates couldn't meet til Elite 8. Then with the pods and power conferences getting 8+ bids, that became impossible so they relaxed the rules but it was still supposed to be one of those, "at all costs" things.

Until you can, of course, guarantee elimination of a non-P5.

SLU & VCU also play on Friday night at about the same time (EST). VCU is around 9:45 and SLU begins at 10 pm.

Minimize non P-5 at all costs is their motto. Buffalo, which had a net of around 15/16 got a 6 seed but more importantly was stuck way out West in Tulsa.

Rothstein kind of went out on his own by leaving CBS Sports online yet he still does studio work for them. He is a used car salesman to say the least.

This is three years out of date but it's a start.

That blog also has a post about the Bee Movie being a Marxist allegory, so it's clearly reputable.

Re: The 2019 NCAA Tournament

My father is 82 and does not really follow basketball like he used to but he does watch games. Last night while talking to him on the phone he said, I see your team is playing against that Tacko fella that is almost 8 feet tall. How tall is VCU's center? I said, 6'7. My father said, I hope he has long arms.
