    And I agree, baseball has more of a "boring" feel, but some games have that slow burn intensity too, even though it's slightly boring at the same time. Take for instance the FSU and NC State game last night. Went into extra innings and you knew the whole time the next run would probably be it. They had played a double header, first one was 3hrs and 45 mins, second went almost 5.5 hours. Long day.
    I guess "boring" isn't the right word; more like "slow." I watched probably 80-90 Brewer games last season, but I literally didn't watch any live start to finish. I typically watch with a delay and use my 30 second skip-forward button to condense the game into like an hour/hour-and-a-half

    Used to be able to do that with football too, and it was almost perfect to instantly go from play to play. But with all the no huddle, the timing is off and you can't do it as much.

    I like Wisconsin's bracket, with the exception of Creighton. We win 2 games and we'll likely have to go through them. I guess we'll see what Creighton is really made of.

    IN reality, I think Wisconsin is better than Creighton. But, if McDermott goes off, then the team feeds off that. If he gets more than 30, they will be tough to beat.

    Well, Illini finished the last 5-6 games very strong, didn't make the NCAA, but will be playing in the NIT. I think it's a good chance for them to play a few more games, and the NIT will be a very competitive tournament.

    On another note, Indiana didn't make the NIT, but got voted into the third tier tournament....but....

    Oh yeah I think they're better too, the Big East is a joke this year, but their scoring potential is a little concerning.

    Honestly though, I wish McDermott would stop wearing a T-shirt under his jersey. He looks like a total douche and its embarrassing for white basketball players.

    7-11 conference record is actually pretty good. (and 12-3 non-conference is obviously good)

    Wisconsin and Michigan State were both 12-6 in the Big Ten, and Michigan State is arguably the best team in the country. Big Ten is a gauntlet of pain this year.

    Confusing on this year's Selection Committee's selection seeds. I like that a Pac 12 School is seeded #1 but I don't agree with it.

    I'm having a difficult time with Kansas getting past E.Kentucky without their starting freshman forward it's maybe why they didn't win the conference tournament in the big 12. I picked Kansas going to the final four.
