Use this thread to talk about college basketball. Syracuse looks like they are in, and hopefully they can actually win a game in the tournament this year. I am a bit more worried about Drexel, which is actually in my local ward in Philadelphia. I'm sure Jerome is high on UCLA, Jonathan might want to talk up Oregon, and Tagaris is probably freaking out about Southern Illinois and the amazing season they have had (since when is a Missouri Valley team #6 in the RPI, 26-6 overall, 8-4 against the RPI top 50, 14-6 on the road / neutral court, and 9-1 in their last ten? They could easily get a #3 seed and go very deep in the tournament with that resume). Good times.
Update [2007-3-11 18:38:53 by Tim Tagaris]: Sorry, Chris ... At least you can be excited about Penn for 15 minutes or so after the game starts. Ahhh! You got 'Nova as well. Gosh, sure would love to see an SIU v. Nova matchup in the Sweet 16. Anything but SIU v. KU.
Chris: WTF??!!! Stanford gets in instead of Syracuse? Total bullshit. We've had some pretty bad first round matchups over the years, but this is just a total pile of shit decision. Oy. This is like losing a game without even getting a chance to play.
