My new TV. :lmao:

Not the way I wanted to break that puppy in...4k Sony, 65" screen. It was delivered on Saturday. Good thing I DVR'ed the OSU game. I heard "Hack a Polack" loud and clear!

I suppose I'll be rooting for AZ. My second favorite team will be whoever's playing against Kentucky. I'm just not a fan of the "one and done".

Absolute lowest seeds left remaining… Personally, I think its boring when we get to the Final Four and there are no underdogs left.

For my $ brackets FF, Florida, MSU, Arizona and Louisville. If money were not involved and I was going on who I liked to see win it would be Dayton, UVA, SDSU and Michigan (for Jordan Morgan).

I thought march madness was over? Well it is for me at least. I guess I'll root for Wichita and Arizona now... if you're going to lose, lose to the best.

Dayton, Virginia, and Stanford. I hope Kentucky gets no further.

Most of my bracket is still alive, sans Kansas and Creighton. That being said, my hope is at least a couple of double-digit seeds can make some noise, Dayton in particular.

I picked Florida to win it all, but Arizona impressed. If they play like that the rest of the way (which is a big IF), nary anyone will stop them.

As a Canuck, teams with Canadian players of course...

Baylor with starting guards Heslip and Chery
Stanford starting front court Nastic and Powell
Iowa State with Ejim and Long
Dayton with KP's friend Pierre and
Michigan with Stauskas

The Wichita part? I don't think they have much hope of actually winning the tourney, but since they beat us last year it'd soften an old blow if they did well this year.

Ummm, their hopes were ended by Kentucky. It's going to take them a lot longer to get over it.

virginia...i think few could learn some things from bennett. they don't really have any elite athletes but they have tremendous size everywhere and play defense close to arizona's level. turnover's killed the zags but the defense left a lot to be desired as well. zags need an athletic big that can rebound and defend at the 4.

Michigan State. Izzo is a great coach, and a better man. One of a handful of coaches who are assets to the game.

I might not even watch another game. After my Zags and Dougie Buckets got thrashed last night I don't have much interest in this tourney anymore.

I don't mind getting crushed by the eventual national champs so I kind of want Arizona to win. (Plus I imagine they are fun to watch when not crushing the zags) but I'll also be rooting for Izzo. MSU set up a home and home with us, he does thig right, and didn't bolt for the NBA when he had a chance.

I really need SDSU to win vs UA to get some separation in my brackets, then I need a Florida NC.

For: Florida and MSU.

Against: Arizona (I can't stand Miller) and Kentucky.

Sort of for: winner of Stanford v Dayton (if UCLA knocks off Florida) and SDSU

Normally I'd root for Michigan as well, but I haven't seen any of their games this season (or at least since November).

I always root for whoever beats us. Then it's kind of like we came in second place, because we got beat by the winner.

So, Go Arizona!

In no particular order

Kentucky or Louisville (and yes I know they are playing each other)
UCLA
Stanford
Arizona

Go KY

Go Pac 12

Go Bulldogs!

That's a special skill you have being able to root for both Kentucky AND Louisville. That would almost be like rooting for Duke and North Carolina, the two are usually mutually exclusive.

Gonzaga vs Arizona.

GU and UA have played each other a handful of times over the years, but I certainly wouldn't call it a bitter rivalry. Lots of people have more than one team they root for. The Kentucky-Louisville rivalry is quite fierce and divisive. There may be a few folks who are fans of both but I would guess not very many. I wasn't criticizing.

It's maybe more like a person rooting for UW and GU. I'm sure there are fans who root for both, but generally there is a healthy dislike for each other.

Oops, I left out the JK part. My bad.

FWIW I'm really starting to dislike Arizona.

I'm sure Oklahoma St. fans are liking Gonzaga less and less with each passing year. At least the Zags got in that beat down in the BIS against UA.

I think Florida wins the whole thing. If Kentucky wins, it will show the one and done works pretty well. I would love to see Wisconsin win the championship, Bo Ryan is a fantastic coach. UConn is in great hands with Kevin Ollie.

If Florida wins, I win my bracket pool, but... I'm rooting for Wisconsin. This is Bo Ryan's first FF, and he's a phenomenal coach. Rooting for him and his Badgers.
