Is the mgoblog bracket on ESPN a little messed up for anyone else? How come it wont list the rankings in order? My other groups look normal.

Divencenzo is fucking balling out right now. Five 3s and 18 points. Wow, carrying Villanova right now with Brunson on the pine for a good chunk of time.

I was thinking...seems UM plays better earlier in day. Over last 2 years, BTT runs, both were all Games before 5. Last year the Ok st. & Louisville games were early. Lost in sweet 16 at night to Oregon. You think anything to this? Probably good we get some night games early, clearly as this tournament goes, day games are basically none existent.

Off topic. Seems football team plays better during day too. What is it about our squads playing in Prime Time that doesn't bring their A game?

Goes both ways. One game dominating doesn't mean you're steamrolling everybody. Villanova and Duke both good, and could meet, but still a lot of work to make that happen. Both Bama and RI weren't very good.

Buffalo just can't get a shot to get to a one possession game. Now an shitty and-1 and back down 8 probably.

Helluva game of 2 skilles teams though. Kentucky is quite the assembly of basketball talent. Fuck John Calipari
