I freakin' hate UConn and if Calipari wins it's just going to get vacated eventually anyway. So I'm not watching either.

This basketball junky will be riveted to tonite's game. Fascinating matchup and clash of styles. Could be one of the better championship games in recent memory.

I was so out of touch that I was watching the replay of Wisconsin/Kentucky yesterday and thought it was live. This has not been an interesting tournament to me...or at least the first 2 and a half rounds weren't interesting enough to keep me around.

Offensive fouls have become a scourge on basketball. That was a terrible call

I just won the expected value of $3.30, as I ended up in the top 1% of ESPN College Hoops Pick'em (I think slightly over 1,500 people) and so now I will be included in the random draw for $5000 Best Buy gift card. The funny thing is that I think I was at best slightly above average, but I suspect over 90% of the original participants simply forgot to fill in the winners for the next round on time (the participants were supposed to pick the winners after every round, not to fill all the brackets at the beginning).

I am almost one McDonald's meal richer (in expected terms)!! 8-)

I guess in old times, CNN would go for "Dewey, Truman win Presidency" :)

You'd be too dumb to realize that you made a mist ke or missed out on anything. Probably too dumb to log into your computer to check anything.
