Sweet 16, Day 2 Live-Comment

I miss Gus Johnson already, and James Brown hasn't even started talking yet. Why, CBS, why?!?

For those of you checking in, let me bring back up a question from this morning: If all four 1-seeds advance to the Final Four -- which would be unprecedented -- would that be good or bad for college hoops?

Now, I'm off to watch Florida and the rest... Enjoy the games!

I hate to use the word "chalk", but a lot of chalk in this tournament so far. 1 and 2s came through tonight.

james brown sounds like he won a contest or something and was rewarded with being able to call this game. yikes! it makes me feel awkward.

My take is that its always fun to see the top seeds go down but as close as they have been tested I think we are still getting the close games plus GREAT future games with the top seeds advancing. Last years Final Four kinda of tailed off b/c no one cared about any of the teams. There were no big dogs to go down. So I think it would be good

I honestly cannot imagine what it would have been like to have Gus calling any of the four games last night. Even the UCLA/Pitt game might have seemed exciting.

Butler up on Florida with 12 minutes to go... sweating yet Dan?

Will Dan jump into full spring training mode if the Gators go down? Like, the heck with the rest of the tournament? :)

I don't think all the 1's advancing would be all that bad at all. God forbid quality teams who were supposed to play well actually play well. With no double digit seeds or true cinderellas this has been an exceptionally exciting sweet sixteen and as the quality stays high hopefully so will the competiotion.

A final four with all 1-seeds?! I thought this was men's basketball.

I don't really care too much about the 1s advancing as long as the games are good....and so far this tourney has had that

Can someone tell me what the hell "chalk" draws its meaning from? I know that it means the higher seed advances, but God help me, I have never heard it before this year.

BobbyStompy said...

I just don't get how sweet, deserving teams blowing double-digit leads to cocky, sluggish, hyper-talented 1-seeds is good for college basketball.

Tyler said...

ugh... thought that the Trojans had that one well in hand. Yuck.

Four one seeds would be good short-term, bad long-term.

Short-term: We'd get some great games with teams we've heard of.

Long-term: If the possibility of an upset is lost, the tournament becomes less appealing in the future.
