    Michigan and MSU would need to get to the championship game before they play each other. We're only going into the sweet 16 next Thursday and Friday.

    Diznee, Michigan is MUCH better than my Longhorns ... no doubt about it. Hitting 14 3-pointers is unreal. I don't see the winner of the Tenn-Mercer game beating Michigan (in their next game). :):)

    Midwest plays the west first. We are going to the Midwest regional. We have zero chance of seeing Michigan play MSU. Your link wants me to download something but here's a bracket from ESPN http://espn.go.com/mens-college-basketball/tournament/bracket. South will play the east and Midwest will play the west. For example, my final four is Kansas vs. MSU (south and east) and Louisville vs. Arizona (west and Midwest). My championship game is Kansas vs. Arizona. Sadly Kansas lost so I'm pretty much done.

    Fla UCLA We have beaten them 3 times in this tournament in the last decade. Should be a good game. They have a 6' 9" PG.
    We have a great one but that is tall.

    All my teams are out. Baylor completely embarrassed both Nebraska (and the officiating was awful) and Creighton. Ugh! I didn't have either of them winning it all, but I expected Creighton to get to the Sweet Sixteen. Now it's time to just sit back and enjoy the rest of the tournament.

    My avatar gives my preference away. My men and Lady Vols are in the Sweet 16! I don't really hold my hopes up for either one winning it all, but I'm proud they got this far. Sorry, Mrs. K--being a Lady Vol fan, I can't cheer for UConn, but I wish them health and safety!

    Four interesting games tonight........ I don't have a horse in this race so I can watch with relative lack of "tension." .... The most interesting game for me is UK vs Louisville ..... Guess I'm for Louisville in this one...

    I went grocery shopping while the Kentucky & Louisville game was on. The place was deserted. I still caught the end of the game.

    My final four is a mess with Louisville losing and Wisconsin beating Arizona. But so psyched about the Badgers and Coach Ryan making the final four. Go Wisconsin!!!

    Exactly. If Blue and Mich. State win tomorrow, it will be 3 B1G teams in the FF. So much for the B1G being "down" this year and the Big 12 being the conference of year.

    Tired of hearing from the B1G haters all season long.

    I'm sure all of the rooms in Michigan are booked already.

    I had a blood vessel in my eye burst during the game. Maybe I shouldn't watch the next one!

    We also got a call from school that we are supposed to wear UK gear and jeans to work all week. Time to dig out my UK stuff. I know I have at least two UK shirts that are presentable for public wear.

    My wish was granted. Wanted UF to make this final four. A tough experienced team on a mission. With three wins this year over one final four team and losses to the other two. Amazing.
    go gators oh yeah, that weak SEC has half the final four teams.
