Am I the only one enjoying them winning this game right now even though it nukes my brackets?

I'd like nothing more than to see most of the Mountain West to be bounced in the opening round. Expose them for the posers that they are.

Oh, yeah - - that was me!

Only b/c LIZF clued me into the MWC conspiracy and that I thought that Harvard was under seeded.

Especially after all of the talk about them being more deserving of the #1.

Lets see...

These Mountain West teams made the tourney
Boise State
New Mexico
Colorado State
San Diego State
UNLV

Lets review the results so far:
Boise State... gone
New Mexico... gone
Colorado State... gets Louisville next... only bright spot so far
SD State... TBD
UNLV... gone

all on day one.

At best they can have 2 teams get through the first round... at worst 1.

Pathetic... this is what you get when you game the RPI... you get mediocre teams posing as powerhouses.

My Dad is a Lobo guy. I feel for him.

I think defense is very important in college basketball, but to advance in this tournament, you have to score. UNM's offensive efficiency throughout the year was mediocre at best. Just too many scoring draughts. They were able to pull most of these games out during the regular season, but as Alford just said on the podium, it was going to come back to haunt them at some point.

Alfred seem classy at the end. After the zag game it's kind hard to look ahead. We should just focus on Wichita.

Score, rebound and defend.

Aren't we in a bracket full of defensive teams?

I would like to see teams from the West win games.

It did feel good to see Harvard beat up on the Lobos though, after hearing about the Lobos ad nauseum.

In the past, after Gonzaga loses my heart is broken. So I stop caring and only maybe even watch the final.

Gonzaga is going all the way so I am going to watch the entire tournament this year.

Where does it say that they're returning though? This is what I saw from the article:

. By withdrawing for two semesters, they leave the door open for re-admission to Harvard -- and a return to the basketball team -- in 2013-14 once their cases are settled.

I had Harvard beating NM. I had Cal beating UNLV. I saw the MWC championship game and I really felt that both UNLV and UNM were both suspect. I saw Harvard almost beat St Mary's in Moraga (they should have really), and I saw on their schedule that they beat Cal a couple days before in Oakland.

I also believe Gonzaga will handle Witchita St. Watched the game last night again between them and Pitt. GU handles Witchita.

Is anybody else hoping to see Ohio State, Duke, Miami, and Georgetown lose in today's games? A couple of early exits by those squads might quiet a few of our critics.

I actually think we were as good as OSU last year ...AND better than them this year....I would LOVE for the Zags to meet them and whip their B1G butts !!! :) I hope every other single digit seed loses.

As a basketball fan I loved that a 14 seed beat a 3 seed. Just wish the committee would have had them both playing a power 6 conference and not each other. I like that New Mexico was highly touted by the National Media ..but when it became..."UNM is for real and has played a very good schedule, unlike Gonzaga...." and other BS along those lines, I was getting upset. But finally it became personal when on the ESPN chat boards there were so many UNM trolls laughing at the Zags and talking about how bad Wyoming would beat them. Why I go to the ESPN boards I'll never know...it is almost like a bad addiction to something you know will only hurt you ..SO MANY HATERS!!!! :)
