This man puts the anal in basketball analyst.
Michigan 62, Clemson 59
Wisconsin 61, Florida State 59 OT
Oh, and for good measure:
Cleveland State 84, Wake Forest 69 (That's Former #1 ranked Wake Forest)
Dayton 68, West Virginia 60 (Softening his Big East hard on)
The only real shame of this tournament is that American and East Tennessee State were unable to seal the deal and further shut up this ass-clown. Before you refute, I recognize that Illinois and Ohio State were upset by "Mid-majors" but I refute back.
1. Western Kentucky is one of the best mid-major programs int eh country and Illinois was playing without their catalyst and senior leader. With Chester Frazier Illinois wins.
2. An 8/9 game is never an upset, especially against a senior-dominated team with NCAA experience. I actually tip my hat to Siena for having the stones to hit both 3-pointers at the end of each overtime. They will give Louisville fits tomorrow.
So after two days we stand as follows:
The almighty Big East: 6-1 (credit where credit is due for surviving scares with Utah State, American, and E. Tenn. St.)
The all-powerful ACC: 3-4
The next incarnation of the MEAC, the Big Ten:4-3 (but 2-0 against the ACC).
We get first dibs for conference pride at 5:40 today, with Michigan tipping shortly after. We're in a dead even game and the Wolverines are proven giant-killers.
For Big Ten honor I declare today's thread open. Feel free to comment along during the game and I will be by around 5:30 to join in. Boilerdowd may be able to get the Cover It Live up and running too.
At 10pm I hope to be able to Digger to suck it, long and hard.
FYI, UW Dawg Pound has provided an excellent breakdown of today's game.
