And then there were 16.  Including the 4 repping the wack-a-doo South region, which gets they turn tonite!

#11(S) Loyola-Chi**** (+1.5, +110) v. #7(S) Nevada (7:07, CBS)

The matchup nobody predicted, largely due to the Wolf Pack (like the vibe, hate the spelling).  NV went down 14 to Texas, fucking 22 to Cincy – each in the second half, before roaring back to win.  How deep a hole will they dig this time?  And can they overcome the Ramblers’ counter tendency to win with a dagger in the last 5 seconds?  Will the efforts of both sides kill that poor, nice old nun?

#7(W) Texas A&M (+3, +130) v. #3(W) Michigan (7:37, TBS)

I would say bet heavy on the Wolverines here (shout out, Mister Winkles!!), but TAMU did the world like the hugest favour last Sunday and I shan’t soon forget it.  Who knows, maybe these fucks are actually good?  Michigan broke mah heart against Houston, so they can get fucked.

#9(S) Kansas State (+5.5, +210) v. #5(S) Kentucky (9:37, CBS)

Speaking of getting fucked…K State was hacking and flopping all over the place to ruin the UMBC Cinderelly story.  So…Coach Cal and Kenfucky are the white hats this round.  Weird, I know.  Reconcile it with getting to see their hot cheer/dance squadrons all weekend.

#9(W) Florida State (+6, +220) v. #4(W) Gonzaga (10:07, TBS)

Are Seminoles an ancient Indian (no ofence) curse against Jesuits?  Should they do to the Zags what they done to Xavier (i.e., rip out their still-beating hearts over the last 6 minutes and change), one will have to answer in the affirmative.  Hippo will continue to wish nothing but the best FOAR the ACC middle class.  SOLIDARITY!

Don T’s Twilight story reminded me of this about Michael B. Jordan in Black Panther.

I went to see the 2nd one. When Bella fell of the bike and Jakob rushed over and took of his shirt, this lady in the theater gasped AY DIOS MÍO

Anyway, yeah. I could watch a film of Eva Green and Gal Gadot just shooting the shit on Skype. Maybe about the signings of Dion Lewis and an ANGRY Malcolm Butler.
Oh. Where’s my fainting futon.

I have a pretty good read as to who is a good person and who is a person to avoid. And everytime I see that 90 year old nun from Layolla, every red flag goes off. She’s got something in her closet

I haven’t seen a Hachimura this disappointed since the battle of Wake Island.

Pete Carroll thinks the upcoming matchup of K-State and Loyola-Chicago is a conspiracy.

Foul ’em, right?

Just think…

I thought the smarter bet was UK -5.0 instead of ML’ing FSU +220.

Haha, isn’t that funny?
