    I always say get us to the sweet 16 and i think we have had a good year, because you never know what can happen from there. Thanks for a good year CATS and GO BIG BLUE and BALL on Ball.

      right on! you’re almost always going to be playing a good team the rest of the way (unless you’re duke or anyone in the west region). no shame in getting beat (if that happens) anywhere the rest of the road.

  2. Are MJ and the guys calling a golf match? 🙂

  3. Okay, so who ya got tonight? Who are your 4 winners? It’s the upper right and lower left brackets tonight:

    I’m intrigued by Purdue. Sunday was my first time seeing Swanigan. Beast!



    • ukjaybrat
      10:17 am March 23, 2017 Permalink

      WVU,AZ,KS,UM

      and that’s in order by confidence



    • ukjaybrat
      10:19 am March 23, 2017 Permalink

      and tomorrow:
      UNC, UK, Baylor, UF

      Sorry Gamecocks

    • I’ll pick:

      Purdue
      Michigan
      WVU
      AZ

      That is in no particular order of confidence.

      Tomorrow I’ll take:
      UF
      USC
      UNC (I SO want to pick Butler)
      UKALLDAY (apologies to the commenter with that screen name)

    • Some of those picks differ from my original bracket BTW, but who cares?

      Swanigan is a beast; we tried to sign him but alas.
      Purdue could beat Ks if their guards could shoot a decent % from the 3 line; but, considering Swanigan and Haas inside…I think their guards shoot too much. But maybe.

    Please tell me karma (and their traditional choke) will catch up with Kansas before the final four.



    • ukjaybrat
      10:21 am March 23, 2017 Permalink

      Michigan CAN beat Kansas. They match up well. but if that doesn’t happen for whatever reason, i like our chances in the rematch. after all, we are Rematch U right ?



    • secrick
      10:24 am March 23, 2017 Permalink

      I hope so and anyone in the 16 but N.C., UCLA and Kansas. UKJAYBRAT, I got Mich, W.V., KANSAS and Xavier

    • I hope you’re right Realme. I certainly won’t mind seeing them go down, but also anyone who beats them would be dangerous also, so it’s a crap shoot.

      I say also too much. 😉

      10:26 am March 23, 2017 Permalink

      X over Zona! Gutsy! i had zona going to the final four… …. and losing to duke. at least half of that can still be right lol



    • runningunnin.454
      10:33 am March 23, 2017 Permalink

      Michigan, Kansas, West Virginia, and Arizona.
      And I think South Carolina and Florida can win their next games.

      Having seen Michigan play twice last weekend, they are a pretty good shooting team. They hit a bunch of threes in both games, including some contested threes against Louisville.

    How does KSR, broadcast a live radio show from an establishment…without discussing said broadcast with the management? I’m not criticizing either. I think it’s hilarious! I’m just saying it seems rather elementary to maybe run it by the business before setting up shop in their place.

      Matt’s motto is ask for forgiveness, not permission. Shannon shouldn’t have insulted the ducks, lol.

      Was wondering the same. Broadcasting 101

      Either way, it was pretty funny and they seemed to have flawlessly relocated.

      This is why I love this show so much better than the more “professional” shows.

    • secrick with the comment of the day so far.

      This really IS great radio.

    Maybe they can broadcast from the street and put a can out for donations.

  7. I’d love to be in Memphis and hear some rockin’ blues when I’m not watching bball!

    Fans of the show should now call the Peabody and tell them we will never visit their establishment now. Blow up their phone lines. 🙂

    Im not sure it’s that great of a deal. Middle of the season last year everybody wanted Stoops fired, but we couldnt because it would cost ~$12 Million. Now after next season, it will cost ~$13 Million. I like Stoops, but we got kinda lucky to end the season with the SEC East being down and the Jackson fumble.



    • secrick
      10:49 am March 23, 2017 Permalink

      I would say we have gotton unlucky and lost some games before. So to say we got lucky doesn’t mean a thing to me.

    Went to Memphis for the SEC trnt once, it was great.

    We got an Aaaayyyy from JT. All is right with the world.

    Everbody stop with the Carolina fear. They ARE very good but nearly lost to an ok Arkansas team and only managed 43 points against Virginia. They have lost 7 games. They are NOT The Warriors. Don’t buy the hype. I DO believe that if we face them that it is a pickem game.



    • secrick
      10:58 am March 23, 2017 Permalink

      Yep i agree, it took 7 of them to knock off Arkansas.

    • I think there are just so many folks like me who don’t want anyone with 5 to get #6, at least until we get #9 and put a little more daylight between them and us, and also make UCLA feel our breath on their neck a bit (or hear us coming, or whatever metaphor you like). That’s just 1 more reason for me that it was so sweet to see Duke bounced early and for IU to not even get in.

    • Not to mention celebrating with Nova made that unbelievable shot last year.

    • When not with…

      Re: the rematch with UCLA and a potential rematch with UNC, I think we have improved more than either of those teams throughout the season, especially on defense. I think we can take them. A few of the Negative Nellies on here keep whining about how good UCLA is. Really? They didn’t win their conference or their conference tournament.



    • CatBlue in LR

      They played in a better conference.

    • J-Dub421
      11:30 am March 23, 2017 Permalink

      11:33 am March 23, 2017 Permalink

      Arizona also won the PAC 12 tournament over Oregon. UCLA didn’t even make the final.

      Ryan is wearing off on him.

    If anyone cares, Michael Porter Jr. has asked Washington for a release since they fired their coach.



    • runningunnin.454
      11:43 am March 23, 2017 Permalink

      Boy, wasn’t that a mess? Porter said they should have waited for a year since they had a great class coming in, and the firing hurt him….I’d say so.



    • J-Dub421
      11:57 am March 23, 2017 Permalink

      Washington went 9-22 this season with one of the best players in the country. They couldn’t wait any longer to fire Romar.



    • runningunnin.454

      Porter to Missouri? I think his father has been hired.

    Matt just wants a chance to ask the security guard why he wasn’t being felt.
