Fortunately, I went to bed at around 11 EST, and didn’t wait up to see confirmation that my brackets made ded.  To the games!  I will just preview all since the Friday night thread goes up late.

#10(S) Iowa (+4.5, +178) v. #7(S) Cincinnati (12:15, CBS)

Perhaps JV Cincy is a tad underseeded.  But like with the Gophers yesterday, I’mma zig and go with the mediocre B1G side.

#9(S) Oklahoma (+1, -102) v. #8(S) Ole Miss (12:40, truTV)

Johnny Reb is back, and he’s brought a rounded ball!  Boomer Sooner is always an interesting tourney team.  Hopefully, a decent game.

#14(W) Northern Kentucky (+13, +700) v. #3(W) Texas Tech (1:30, TNT)

Team Building a Homeland FOAR White Chill’uns is back, and they certainly have a shot at a win this time.  Guns Up!! and hoopsball just don’t mix.

#13(S) UC-Irvine (+4.5, +175) v. #4(S) Kansas State (2:00, TBS)

Oh, look forth and see how Vegas believes in Spam’s Anteaters!  And why not?

#15(S) Colgate (+17.5, +1350) v. #2(S) Tennessee (2:45, CBS)

Rick Barnes, Colgate challenges you to a game of horseshoes.  A game of horseshoes!!

#16(S) Gardner-Webb (+21.5, +1750) v. #1(S) Virginia (3:10, truTV)

No, it won’t happen again.  Let’s just get that shit out of the way.

#11(W) Arizona State (+4.5, +175) v. #6(W) Buffalo (4:00, TNT)

Time to circle the wagons, Bills/Bulls, and take out the trash.

#12(S) Oregon (+2, +120) v. #5(S) Wisconsin (4:30, TBS)

Nothing says The South quite likes an easy joke about Oregon and Wiscy.  Yankees go home!!!1111

#9(MW) Washington (+3, +140) v. #8(MW) Utah State (6:50, TNT)

Wanna get some clue of how shit the Pac-Twaaaaalve was this season?  U-Dub went like 15-3 in league play, and will wear their road unis as a dog against Utah Fucking State.

#16(E) North Dakota State (+26.5, +5000) v. #1(E) Duke (7:10, CBS)

Oh Lord, y’all is gon’ die.  And this here is Exhibit A in why one keeps their cable.

#14(MW) Georgia State (+12, +600) v. #3(MW) Houston (7:20, TBS)

Not only is there really a “Georgia State” – but twas also where Lefty Driesell finished up his coaching career!  Not that such trivia will help much tonight.

#12(E) Liberty (+6.5, +250) v. #5(E) Mississippi State (7:27, truTV)

Both of these sides are frighteningly over-seeded, but in no way am I putting cash on the Flamers ,, smh.

#16(MW) Iona (+22, +2500) v. #1(MW) U*NC (9:20, TNT)

Fuck the committee for putting “Jim Valvano, I Own a College” against these cheating fuckstains.

#9(E) UCF (-1, -118) v. #8(E) VCU (9:40, CBS)

Huzzah, we finally get a lower-seeded team who is a favourite, however slightly.

#11(MW) Ohio State (+5, +180) v. #6(MW) Iowa State (9:50, TBS)

tOSU, another side that didn’t deserve a bid, up against one of my favourite sides (in a tourney without my shitty wolves).  We all can write the ending.

#13(E) St. Louis (+10, +450) v. #5(E) Mississippi State (7:27, truTV)

Nightmare fuel “kinda rapey” mascot up against the Castrated Turkeys.  So much fun, one might make it to halftime before falling asleep.

I thought Mormons weren’t allowed in Ohio?

Every ASU turnover has Bobby Hurley nervously reaching for a seatbelt.

This needs to be bannered as it is far superior to the current one.

Do you think there’s one guy who gives every basketball ref in the world their haircut, or is it more of a franchise thing?

You can actually see the debris of all her childhood dreams and innocence as they are blasted right the fuck out of her body. She emerged a bitter, hardened woman with absolutely no feelings.

She’s a such a good actress.

The Mueller Report has been submitted to the Attorney General. Let the fuckery begin.

Hopefully this doesn’t get squashed or fucked up. But I’m not holding my breath.

That’s going to take some high level leakage if we’re to find out anything really juicy. He picked Barr for AG for a reason. my guess is, the most that comes out of this is going to be more congressional committee investigations.

I’m hoping a member of congress goes the Pentagon Papers route and reads it on the floor, entering it into the public record.
