March Madness Play In

Huh?  Do you see ‘Meta’ in the title or tags?

Nope, it’s the start of the 2010 NCAA Men’s Basketball Championship which should be a little more interesting than the Women’s side where I confidently predict the Lady Huskies will romp to their 5th undefeated season and 7th Championship (still 1 behind Tennessee’s record 8).

Tonight’s Play In game, starting at 7:30 pm on ESPN is between Arkansas (Pine Bluff) 16 – 15 and Winthrop 19 – 13.  The winner advances to the South Region 16th seed where they will face Duke Friday in the 7:25 game on CBS.

The round of 64 is happening Thursday and Friday, the round of 32 Saturday and Sunday.  The fact of the matter is I’m really not quite sure how to blog it, so if anyone wants to jump in and volunteer I’m more than happy to let them show me the way.

In the interests of full disclosure I’m not much interested in any teams except Syracuse and Michigan State and I expect them both to make early exits.  I suppose I’ll try and summon some enthusiasm for whatever Big East team lasts the longest, I predict Georgetown because they have another monster Center.

Bonus NIT coverage-

Texas Tech v. Seton Hall.

The Hall is actually a good team, they should have no trouble with Tech.

More Bonus NIT-

North Carolina v. William & Mary

Still More NIT-

Jacksonville v. Arizona State

  1. And don’t ask me how to set up a bracket pool because I don’t know.

  2. Siena Saints  (13 seed) over Purdue Boilermakers (4 seed). Purdue’s best player (Robbie Hummel)  will not play do to injury. Since then they have looked mediocre. Look for Siena, from upstate NY, to take this one.

    Favorite team nickname:  the Terriers of Wofford College. How could you not root for a team called the Terriers.

    Howze’ my sportswriter impersonation?

  3. I am not overly invested this year but I just decided to see how Butler does. And Nova.

    Since I live in Memphis I am NOT a Kentucky fan. Duke I am just sick of them. They are a great but …… I don’t like the coach of the Tennessee Vols. So.

  4. on ESPN 2 UConn v. Northeastern.

    UConn was a huge disappointment this year.  Northeastern is Calhoun’s former team.

  5. 19 – 10

    13:26 in the half

    Someone got ejected.

    Hall in White.

  6. North Carolina v. William & Mary

    NC by 2, 11 – 9 16+ in the half.

  7. Lots of last second clock gymnastics but to no avail.

  8. Arizona in White.
