March Madness is great. I don't know if you've watch any other tourney games or if this is your first game(which is lacking offense tonight and just pick a bad game to watch) but it is one of the best sporting events out there not just to me but to a lot of people.

It is different. Like I said not for everyone. I'm sure if you have a team to root for it is better like you said.

Sure the NCAA is making a tons off these players but don't act like they have it that bad.

Butler can't get anything inside so they're just settling for a lot of jump shots.

Like Barkley said Butler is not a very athletic team but they're well coach, play hard, good BB IQ, and do the small things.

Once again if the NBA playoffs was not better then it would be pretty sad. NBA has the best athletes in the world. Of course it is going to be better. March Madness is pretty fun though if you watch all of it. There have to been some great player performances, great games, great finishes, great action, etc. Of course not all the games have been like it(just like how all NBA playoff games/series are not). And this NC game hasn't live up to the hype as past but it still been a great tourney.

NBA has no parody, that alone makes it boring to me, the over-payed drama queens makes it that much worse.

At least the game is picking up a little in the second half. It was almost painful to watch the 1st.

Lamb is killing it, with Oriakhi is patrolling the paint, and Kemba's just about to take over.

That is where college BB is different then the NBA.

NBA going into the year I mean there are really 3-4 teams that you really think have a chance to win it all(this year actually seems different and there are a few more teams that are better). College BB is so unpredictable. Look at Butler who is the NC game. This team is not the best team/most talented in CBB but some how found away to make it here.


NBA players are a lot better though. Like I said the NBA has the best players so the play is going to be a lot better.


But this has been on of the worst NC games shooting performance heck the worst ever. Kinda reminds you of the Spurs vs Cavs NBA finals a few years ago.

They are getting some good shots but can't make nothing. Reminds me of Ohio State vs Kentucky.

Although I don't know how much it would affect the shooting the final 4/NC game this year is in a dome. A lot of players have said they don't like shooting in a dome and #'s have shown shooting goes down when teams shoot in a dome(don't remember the stats but the Buckeyes played in a dome last year and I remember seeing the #'s in the newspaper).


Although with that said you don't shoot this bad(Butler shooting).

the idea that the athletes don't get anything out of this is not something i agree with. not only the experience, but many of them - probably most of them - get a free education and all the resources of wealthy organizations that have the primary purpose of giving opportunity and teaching.

That was Napier when he was on the 3 on 1 fast-break. He got pushed to the floor well he was up in the air trying to get the rebound off the miss.

it's a bit tiresome having guys say NBA players are overpaid prima donna's compared to the super competitive and superior College kids.

The toronto Raptors would beat the Huskies by about 45 points.

no shit they would, the hell does that have to do with anything. Despite what you may think or agree with, i happen to think most of the higher paied players in basketball are prima donna's and think mostly every sports athlete on this planet is over-payed.
