    ...and UW loses to OSU on the conference tourney, probably killing any chance to go dancing and therefore have me watch any games. But we won a regular season championship that totally isn't pointless at all, right? Right?

    No? Oh well. Continue then.

    Well, Michigan decided to play 1 on 5 in the first half and 2 on 5 in the second. So that helped them a bit.

    That was probably Michigan's second worst performance of the year. Maybe third worst. At Iowa was definitely worse.

    But they escaped, so whatever. Boiler up!

    Thank you, Michigan, for giving me a pre-tourney need to suck down huge amounts of oxygen. And liquor.

    I feel suitably ready for the Opening Round.

    Man Cincy is really awful at free throws. They had that game nearly locked up before they tried to hand it back to Cuse.

    Also, I have no idea what's going on in the Buckeye game because I'm in the hospital waiting on a baby. I heard it started off well, though.

    OSU is up 5, and has been fairly consistently by that amount. Matt Painter got a tech for bitching about Big Ten officials' usual treatment of Sullinger/Craft.

    And congrats. May s/he come north in 18 years.

    And an 11-0 run finally ends it, probably.

    EDIT: 15-0 and I turned it off. See y'all tomorrow.

    I am shocked the ACC's shit officiating once again favors either Duke or North Carolina! Or, as is likely in 2.5 hours, both.

    Thank you, both for the update and the congrats. Today should be a good game and I should be able to actually watch it too. Hopefully, we maintain the momentum of the last three games and stay out of foul trouble.

    OSU's going to win, easily if Sullinger fouls out Morgan, close if not.

    It's in Indianapolis. We're the "home team" because we went 1-0 against Wisconsin to your 1-1.

    Trey Burke is so gassed.

    I'm in New Orleans for the SEC tournament, and this is my first real experience with how well UK fans travel. Blue is everywhere, and the stadium is packed with Wildcat fans. All of these games are essentially home games for UK, including the LSU game. Somebody was saying "LSU is 80 miles from New Orleans, and I think there were maybe 80 LSU fans at that game."

    We flew in from Nashville, which is Vandy's home city, and on the (full) plane there were like 15 people not in some kind of SEC gear, 1 Vandy fan, 2 Tennessee fans, and the rest were UK fans.

    Considering the SEC tournament doesn't really matter for UK almost at all, this kind of turnout is insane. "Blue Orleans" indeed.

    Technical foul on Michigan State coach Tom Izzo for being a douche.

    The officials seem so confused. How can we both call everything in Craft/Sullinger's favor AND Izzo's favor?

    That's pretty rough for Kentucky. And brutal for Indiana. Also, the committee can kindly fuck off for pairing Wichita State and VCU.

    The video clip of Indiana selection was them going "Yeah! Good job guys! Nice placeme-" and then the rest of the teams got populated and they all stopped cheering.

    It's too bad their second round game is against an actually somewhat talented version of an Ole Miss team that gave them fits for 30 minutes on Saturday.

    I approve of that draw for Michigan. UNC is the #1 we match up best with, I think. And the MAC champion whatever. Pretty much the same with Temple. Think Sweet 16 is fairly likely if we play decent. Play well on the second weekend and could make the Elite Eight.

    Kansas would smoke us though, so oh well.

    EDIT: Also, obviously, BEAT OHIO (you're so funny, committee)

    So does anybody know if CBS is going to stream games online like they did for the conference tourneys they were covering? I'd like to be able to watch a ton of games but don't have cable tv at the moment.
