March Madness 2010 Thursday Rapid Shots

  1. How about all the upsets and close games, everyone was right on with calling out how much parity is in the college game right now.
  2. Give a hand to the selection committee for the 8 versus 9 pairings, given how those games played out they were very well seeded.
  3. What about those last second shots by Murray State,Wake Forest,Washington and Northern Iowa.
  4. How about the 2OT game for Florida vs BYU and the Robert Morris vs Villanova to get March Madness 2010 kicked off.
  5. Learn the name Jimmer Fredette, the BYU guard out of Glens Fall,NY is a big time scorer he through in 37 today. What heard about the offense from Jimmer coming into the tournament but how about that defense he displayed as well.
  6. We had St. Mary's picked all the way and they didn't disappoint, how about Omar Samhan the Gaels center couldn't be stopped by anything but foul trouble as he had 29 points and 12 boards in only 28 minutes.
  7. We didn't think Butler was going to advance into the second round but they came up big to start the second half and look poised for a run now during March Madness 2010.
  8. How about freshman guard Eric Bledsoe's career high 29 point performance for Kentucky, is he the player that puts Kentucky over the top in their quest for the Final Four?
  9. Who is Armon Bassett and where did the Ohio guard come from, he had 32 against Georgetown the junior averaged 16.9 points per game in the regular season but did have 38 earlier in the year but that was against Kent State.
  10. What about Ohio with the mega upset against Georgetown, where was a Hoya defense as they gave up 97 points to the team that finished 9th in the MAC during the regular season, you read that correctly 9th in the MAC.
As for our March Madness Bracket we predicted 11 out of the 16 games correct which is good for the 87.4 percent tile for brackets nationally. We didn't beat Obama's bracket as he had a great day but we did beat Dick Vitale, Joe Lundardi and Lebron James. We had St. Mary's all the way, we didn't see the Ohio win coming but we do pick the 14 seed Oakland to beat Pitt on Friday. We really thought long and hard about picking the upsets over Notre Dame and Vanderbilt and wish we did, but considering how close the games were we don't feel to bad about it. In the end we kept Notre Dame and Vanderbilt to win in only the first rounds because our bracket looked like it had to many upsets and we had to scale them back. UTEP collapsing in the second half really hurts our bracket as we also had them also beating Vandy in the second round. We hope your brackets are still doing well and look forward to an exciting day of basketball on Friday.
