    That'd be a trade-up in recruits for Donovan. Kind of a Doherty/Williams deal except Donovan has already proven he can win the whole thing.

    Unless Meeks and Patterson leave. But you don't go pro from an NIT team do you?
    Hard to say. I've heard that this isn't a great year for NBA draft picks (I don't really follow the NBA so I can't speak with much authority there) and that might encourage both of them to leave, since fewer good picks=better draft position for them. But, as you said, going from the NIT to the NBA (especially when you got beat in the NIT) would be pretty strange, but it's probably been done before.

    Stephen Curry (Davidson), Patty Mills (St. Mary's), Greg Monroe (Georgetown), and Jerome Jordan (Tulsa) are all expected to go pro, and none of them made the NCAA tournament. As entertaining as the tourney is, it's not a huge deal to the NBA. It matters a whole lot more to them what 1 guy can do than what his overall team does.

    How many time do they talk about one side of the state vs the other in the Villanova/Pitt game? I predict lots.

    ohwow.

    That injury looked... painful. Just ouch. Feel bad for the kid.

    Also, it's not so much east v west PA that they're talking about. It's the whole "how many of these kids are from Philly and have been playing each other so many times over the years?" thing

    Well, so far I'm 2 for 2 on Final Four picks.

    Interestingly enough, I have Nova and UConn losing in the Final Four, so the important picks have yet to be done.

    For the love of god, just don't lose, Michigan St.

    Yeah, I think we're done here folks.

    If this Michigan State team comes to play in Detroit where they'll have pretty hardcore home court advantage, UConn won't stand a chance. To the National Championship, Spartans!

    Assuming the Tar Heels put this away, I have three Final Four picks.

    The scenarios are as follows. Listed are all the possible results of the final, along with who would win the pool if that came to pass.

    MICHIGAN STATE OVER VILLANOVA: VH's Bracket
    VILLANOVA OVER MICHIGAN STATE: VH's Bracket
    MICHIGAN STATE OVER NORTH CAROLINA: VH's Bracket
    NORTH CAROLINA OVER MICHIGAN STATE: VH's Bracket
    CONNECTICUT OVER VILLANOVA: Bracket's Edge
    VILLANOVA OVER CONNECTICUT: Bracket's Edge
    CONNECTICUT OVER NORTH CAROLINA: Bracket's Edge
    NORTH CAROLINA OVER CONNECTICUT: Buzzer Beater

    So basically, it's down to visiblehowl, Ringo and myself. If Michigan State advances to the finals, visiblehowl wins no matter what else happens. If Connecticut advances to the finals, I win unless the Tar Heels beat them, in which case it's Ringo with the Hail Mary.

    Well Gosling, I love you and all - but I really hope you don't come anywhere near winning the pool. Even if it's UNC over MI ST and visiblehowl wins I'll be the happiest man.

    What a great final four. I think I like all these teams. At least, I like Michigan and UNC and I don't dislike UConn/Nova. And no Duke/Louisville!

    Also that Tom Izzo pic is D:

    It's like batman or something

    Calipari new coach at UK.

    I'm pretty pleased with this pick, particularly because Calipari is a fantastic recruiter and will likely be bringing several of his Memphis recruits with him to Kentucky. If Meeks and Patterson stick around, Kentucky could have one of the most incredible turnarounds the NCAA has ever seen - NIT to fairly deep in the NCAA tournament, I'd imagine.

    I'd heard Calipari mentioned yesterday, and I'm glad he ended up being the one. I'd also heard Tom Izzo's name dropped, which would have been really badass, but developing a good program where he's at and I can't blame him for not wanting to leave, even though I'm sure UK would have offered him $texas.

    Frankly I'm glad we got Calipari instead of Donovan - I didn't really care for somebody that let a punk like Joachim Noah play for him. And I'm glad Gillispie is gone. Calipari's already signed a contract, something Gillispie was apparently never willing to do, so he's already more of a coach IMO than Billy G ever was.
