I was at the barber shop yesterday to get my little boy's hair cut and picked up a copy of Sports Illustrated with a Villanova player on the cover. My first thought was the Sports Illustrated jinx strikes again but then I opened the cover and their ncaa tournament issue actually has 6 regional covers. Of the six, Villanova, Gonzaga and Kansas are already out. The other 3 were Kentucky, Syracuse and (I think) Ohio State. May they all fall in the next round!

I'm a little surprised that no one commented on this thread but I decided to update it anyway. Syracuse and Ohio State both lost leaving just Kentucky remaining of the six regional SI covers. Let's go WV take them out to make the perfect sweep!

Plus wasn't Ali Farokhmanesh (crazy that I can spell that without looking!) on the cover this week, therefore "jinxing" Northern Iowa in their Sweet Sixteen game?

And the jinx may have some more legs here...

Watching Calipari squirm with no answers is giving me much more pleasure than I think it should. I'm sitting back, with my feet propped and a misting George Killians resting by my side, smiling at Big Blue Nation.

Hi, guys. See ya next year.

Kentucky loses to a good West Virginia team... Glad they didn't put Duke on the cover... yet! :D

Somebody in Lexington failed to push the "Easy" button.

Well that was a nice game last night. Heading into the tournament I had 2 goals: 1) Duke making it to the F4 and 2) Kentucky not winning the championship. One down and one to go.

Let's just hope that if Duke can get past Baylor SI decides to go with an underdog theme for their next cover!

Is there any way to petition SI to keep us off the cover for next week?

Or just all four teams on the cover and then we're even!

Butler should be on the cover.
