... I slightly want Michigan to beat Loyola-Chicago ...
That's what I wanted to want - state u. vs. Catholics - but I found myself rooting for Loyola-Chicago, even before they were leading. So far, so good with 11 to go, a moral victory even if they lose.
Loyola-Chicago fell apart literally the moment that I posted the above. I'm a jinx :( . Given this, go KS!

Cool.

I want either Michigan or Loyola-Chicago to beat either Nova or KS.

However, if I was making a new bet it would be on Nova.

Even more so after tonight.

How about those Notre Dame women! They wrecked UConn’s unbeaten season in OT on Fri. night. Now - Mississippi State, the team that spoiled UConn’s tournament last year and buzzer beater winner over Louisville on Friday. Go Irish!

10 minutes into the game there's a Mississippi State player with 100 rebounds in the tourney. The old record was 75.

5:30 left in the 3rd. Ut-oh, forgot that I'm a jinx, go Mississippi State!

:lol: Notre Dame was down about 13 when I posted the above, now 41-41 at the end of 3.

3 point buzzer beater for the Notre Dame61-58 win!!! Damn, I'm good . . . or bad . . . or something.

Go Nova. ;)

WTF? It's not like I can't get the channels if I decide to watch some of the game, but running it on no major networks or ESPN and running it on TBS, TNT and TruTV? Seriously?

Turner must have bid more.

Fwiw:
truTV - Villanova TeamCast
TNT - Michigan TeamCast, I'm pretty sure
TBS - Neutral national program, I'm pretty sure

I do think it's kinda cool that viewers can choose partisan programming.

Which did you end up with? I chose TBS, though it was such a rout I was mostly watching other stuff. The Michigan TeamCast must have been depressing.

TV Guide wasn't very clear about it, hence my "I'm pretty sure" about TNT and TBS before the game. I wouldn't have known at all except that the distinctions were mentioned well into the Women's Final the night before.

***** Picks by Seeds ***** - Tie for 34th.
VA > Duke, Michigan and Villanova losing in the Final 4 - Tie for 45th.
*****Barack Obama ***** and Michigan > Purdue, Michigan State and VA losing in the Final 4 - Tie for 71st.
