When it comes to Iowa athletics, I have found that it's best for my health to expect the absolute worst and be pleasantly surprised if anything good at all happens.

Me too, then I can ask him to show me his full chest tattoo, because I really want to know how ridiculously bad it is! (Aaron White is still the man though)

edit: apparently it's this:

quote:

The other tattoo which slightly peeks out of his uniform along his right chest muscle is a staircase going through clouds, along with the names Deborah (Mom), and Helen and Susie (his grandmothers).

His mother is still alive, so I think I'm allowed to make fun of that.

Nothing new under the sun.

It seems everybody is locking onto the same double digit teams to possibly get to the sweet 16: Texas, Davidson, BYU, Dayton. One of those may but another will likely be a complete dark horse.

BYU is a fun choice, because they just love points.

Last year's edition wasn't as good as years prior because it gave too many hints as to who the teams actually were.

I don't know what it sees in Buffalo, honestly. I ran it a bunch of times and Buffalo got there just as often as Kentucky.

Duke, although I think Gonzaga could give them issues too. Duke especially though. Their offense is even better and the defense is about a wash. Okafor is also a massive mismatch against ISU's front line. They don't have anyone who can come even close to checking him.

I haven't watched enough Gonzaga this year, but I feel that Iowa could give the Zags a real good game. Am I crazy?

I'm in this survivor pool where I have to choose teams to win and then I can't choose them again, which is a lot more difficult than it sounds like. Because ultimately I have to pick teams that I think will win but won't win much more than that, and I chose Gonzaga in the first weekend as I don't see them in the Final Four, I have a difficult time seeing them going far really.

If you don't set Madness to the maximum level then you're doing it wrong. It obviously works because it keeps picking Wisconsin, and thinking that Wisconsin is winning anything sure is madness.
