BI NOW GAY LATER
Jan 17, 2008

So people stop asking, the "Bi" in my username is a reference to my love for the two greatest collegiate sports programs in the world, the Virginia Tech Hokies and the Marshall Thundering Herd.

Either that or win another Natty

(but it's probably losing in before the Sweet 16. Thank God SMU was not in the tournament)

I think we both know that UConn team had no place being a 7 seed or whatever.

So, uh, when are the CBI or CIT selections announced? Excited to see which one Illinois turns down. Although if we won the CBI, I would definitely buy a CBI Champions 2016 tshirt.

They have opened as a 6 point favorite. Whatever that Temple moneyline is, it will be one of the best bets in terms of value in all of the first round.

Temple is probably the worst at large team in the whole tournament but when you lose to loving Penn State it doesn't really matter.

I haven't looked at the bracket, but a shitload of 1 seeds lost their conference tournaments, and they get auto-bids to the NIT, so perhaps that had something to do with it?

Temple actually owns, thank you very much. Also probably capable of beating Penn State in basketball.

FCGU made the tourney. Do they play like the Dunk City team at all?

So, who do you guys have as your favorite to take home the hardware in the Vegas 16? The clear favorite is obviously the Online University of Liverpool but I'm gonna go out on a limb and take the Xenon International School of Hair Design as my sleeper pick to win it all.

I can't go any further without addressing John Calipari being a complete fanboy for Train. One of the greatest coaches in college basketball history gets down to "Hey, Soul Sister." I can only assume this will now be used against him in recruiting.

I specifically sought out one FGCU game to watch this year just to check up (because that's probably my favorite tournament run of all time, I was in coincidentally in Philadelphia at the hotel the team was at for the first two rounds and it was a loving RIOT) and this is and has been a tremendous disappointment.



Ughhhh the writing on this is more embarrassing than the (pretty tepid and safe) choices.

The West division has a serious dearth of real contenders for the title, I guess appropriate that they're all lined up against each other?

5 years with Georgia Tech's current coach and we haven't made the tournament even once.

Turns out a big part of the reason he hasn't been fired is because we're STILL on the hook for $900k/year to Paul Hewitt thru 2019, a full 8 years after he was fired.

The former AD should be stripped of any connections to GT.

Remember that time Paul Hewitt went to the national championship game? That sure was a thing...
