    Before there were 3 of 4 local 8/9s.

    There are still tickets available in the upper sections behind the goals.

    Their resumes against Q1 teams did them in. That and having a couple of bad losses. Themís the breaks. Needed to win one or two more of their close losses.

    So I just sat through the whole ESPN bracketology show, and every single "analyst" picked Duke to reach the title game. Dick Vitale, Rece Davis, and Seth Greenberg picked Duke to win it all. Jay Bilas and Jay Williams (of course) did not.

    Bilas picked Kentucky and Williams picked . . . . North Carolina. Keep in mind, this is over Duke, in the national championship game. Both of the Jays are dead to me.

    More Sunday night games than before on TNT etc. Any chance weíre on an off channel/not CBS?

    The whole thing may be scripted. ESPN could be directing them who to pick; similar to their edict regarding downplaying the greatest cheating scandal in NCAA history.

    The opposite (Williams picked UK and Bilas UNC).

    Obviously, it's possible..but if you were CBS and you had first dibs would you give up Duke/Zion to another of the networks? And not put in your prime time slot. Only way it would happen if someone else has first choice of games. Not familiar with the contract, but would imagine CBS has first choice.

    Glad they picked against Duke. Both have been wrong with their picks most of the season (JW more than JB). I'd be more nervous if they had picked Duke.

    In 2017, we got the last slot, tip-off was about 9:30. Made for a VERY long drive back to Durham.

    If Duke had Zion, Grant, Laettner, Kyrie, and JJ (all at college peak, not at current age) the two Jays would pick them to lose in the final. They may be contractually obligated to pick against them. But who cares? It affects nothing.

    Eh, there is usually a team or two in that range that gets left out. Almost always because they didnít win enough against good teams.

    NC State had a horrible OOC schedule. Add that to the bid stealers.

    Bilas picked UNC? Wow, I'm shocked.

    Yeah, if they had picked Duke then weíd be complaining that they were trying to jinx us. Whatever. I donít think the CHeats make the final four, although my reasoning will sound very ironic coming from a Duke fan - they rely too heavily on three point shooting and donít have enough post scoring.

    I'm not exactly disagreeing, but how often are they knocked out by at large teams in the 60-80 range?

    Looking at Kenpom definitely confirms that we got a tough break in VT as a 4 seeds (ranked #11 in Kenpom). Make VT a 3, LSU a 4 and give us them instead.

    Duke and Auburn I see.

    Nevada and Villanova make me wonder if youíve watched college basketball in the past three months, haha. Iíd be shocked if either of those teams see the second weekend.

    Obviously you've forgotten that UNCheat has the greatest defender in college basketball. At least according to Bilas.
