    Anyone else rooting for UCD tomorrow? I graduated in 1990 and again in 1996 as a DII school and never thought I'd see the day UCD would make it into the Division I tourney! Granted if they get past the play-in game they will 99% get destroyed by Kansas but still...

    Nice! Aggies and Coach Jim Les make history. Hopefully get first ever tourney W and have at least one more game before fun ends. I was hoping someone here would start Yahoo bracket pick 'em but no problem. Now have 6 brackets on ESPN and one on Yahoo. Let the March Madness begin!

    As a proud UCD grad, I am far more into this year's March Madness than I usually am.

    (MOD NOTE: I changed the title slightly to make this the March Madness discussion thread...)

    Cannot believe how much fun it is to watch March Madness from G1C. Catching the Iona-Oregon game right now, and there's a lot of talent out there...and heart, hustle, energy and excitement. Totally blew me away that Washington (Iona) was able to come back and play in the second half after watching him collapse to the floor in agony with what looked like might be a broken leg...


    This tournament always reminds me just why I love basketball so much.

    When I went to UCD the basketball team was horrid. No NCAA 16th seed has ever beaten a 1st seed, so my hopes aren't really up for this game, but Jim Les deserves a lot of credit for getting them this far. I never thought I'd see the day.

    They hung tough for the first ten minutes. This year has been a nice step for building the program

    My family was actually at the game! Wife, son, sister-in-law, and father-in-law were in the general area for a family get together (her side) and when they found out Davis made it in they got tix and went to the game. My SIL went to UCD and also taught there, so we are all UCD fans (in-laws live in Davis, too). They had a blast despite the result. Here is one of my son in front of the arena today with his UCD T-shirt. Unfortunately, I had to work and couldn't make the trip.

    Dangit! I should have checked on my phone!

    That said - these games today were emblematic of everything we worked for. And G1C was ROCKING. Such a thrill.

    All the breaks seem to be going UK's way right now...and I'm glad. If UCLA loses, hopefully Ball's dad will lose all relevance until June.

    Does my heart good to see UCLA being outplayed by Calipari's Wildcats. I'm worrying now that Fox might not be available to us if we don't get very lucky in the draft lottery. I like everything about that kid.

    We are going to see the women's games in Stockton today, specifically Oregon. My wife's sister works at Oregon.

    Good game right now with UK/NC... Winner will join Oregon, SC and Gonzaga at the Final Four. Willing to bet not too many brackets have those teams. ;)

    Boy, UK is painting themselves into a corner with Fox on the bench. Gotta give credit to the Tarheels defense, though, too. They're playing tough.

    Well, as good as Fox looked the last game, the NC defense has sure exposed his weaknesses in this game.

    Wow. What an ending...to the game and my bracket.
