I just wonder who decides what games are played at what time and what logic they supposedly use to do so. Case in point tonight: UK plays Cornell on the late game from Syracuse at the same time Xavier plays Kansas St. while Washington plays WVU at 7:30 EDT. My problem with this: UK and X have a definite overlap in viewing area because there are a LOT of UK fans in the Cincy DMA and there are at least a reasonable amount of fans in the area that like and would love to watch both teams. Instead UK fans in the Cincy DMA have to watch their game in SD on a digital sub-channel (thank you WKRC for at least doing that) or on a PC (which pretty much sucks) and Washington fans will have to cut out of work early because their team plays at 4:30 Pacific Time. It sure seems like putting X or UK on earlier and letting Washington play the late game so their fans would see it at a more reasonable time would have been a more logical schedule.

My (late) pick for the FF: Mich St., Kansas St, Duke and UK - I don't think I need to tell you who I picked to win it all. :-)

At least part of it, on a night like this... is they don't want to force viewers to choose between the two #1 seeds playing tonight... So Syracuse and UK can't play a game at the same time.

Which means, either UK gets the early game or Syracuse does... and that essentially forces the other games to be where they are.

One of my original final 4 picks from my "official" bracket is still here... Duke... and I am kinda surprised they are the last standing of the #1 seeds.

I did, however, pick New Mexico to beat Kentucky in my bracket... of course New Mexico didn't get that far, but I didn't have Kentucky in the final four anyway.

Not a hater... just thought their youth would catch up with them at some point.

How will John Calipari be able to recruit if they eliminate the 1 and done rule? Will he actually recruit kids who want to earn a college diploma? I was very glad to see the veteran West Virginia team beat the immature and whiny Kentucky team. John Calipari was too busy whining to the officials to coach his team. How many years until Kentucky has to vacate wins because of Calipari breaking NCAA rules?

The weird thing is that Duke is probaly the worst team left of the Final Four. It looks like a Butler/West Virginia final on Monday night. I think West Virginia will win the championship.

It's funny you posted that... because while I like Coach K, and Duke, and am an ACC fan as you might guess from my being in Raleigh.... All season long I've been watching Duke and amazed they have as good of a record as they do.

I understood why the NCAA gave them a #1 seed, but had they given that seed to West Virginia instead, I would not have had a reason to complain.

But, Duke is my only original final 4 pick still left. In fact, I had them in the title game losing to Kansas (which obviously can't happen).

On paper I'd have to rate the teams: Michigan St, West Virginia, Butler, Duke.

But at this point I would not at all be surprised to see Duke win the title because even though I did pick some upsets, this tourney has not gone anything at all like I originally thought it would.

I'm rooting for Butler. They've won me over in this tournament. I hope they beat MSU, and play WVU, though it would be sweeter to see Butler beat duke in the championship game.

As long as Duke doesn't win, I'll be happy. :D
Have a Great Day! :) :flag:

Not that I have anything personal at stake... but the only team I guess I'm rooting "against" would be West Virginia.

I like Duke, being an ACC fan.

I like Tom Izzo and you have to like what he does every year with Michigan St.

I also like Butler and what they've done this year.

Only WVa leaves me a little cold... so I've got at least a 75% chance of being happy :)

my order of rooting interest

Butler- seeing a non power conf team win it would be awesome
Michigan St- I hate the big ten's style of play but Izzo runs a class program
West Virginia- only rooting for them tonight











































Dook-ESPN would be unbearable for months if they win it

Should be a helluva game tonight. I actually think Butler has a chance and I really don't want to see Duke win, so I'll be pulling for them.
