How you guys liking Grant Hill as an announcer on TV? I think he's ok, but not great. Maybe above average. Maybe he'll get better

I’ve got Michigan winning it all in my bracket. They’ve looked really good lately. Great coach, very deep.
Bump.

That was a very exciting game. I am pumped for Kansas Villanova coming up!

These Wolverines are a lot of fun to watch : Tough, high-skilled, and emotional leader in Wagner; a beast in Matthews; a steady presence in Simpson; and lights out shooters everywhere. 

I've watched very little of the tourney this year, but it's hard to imagine a better team that's left.  They look championship caliber.

My wife and I watched the men and women’s Final Four games this weekend. The women’s games were definitely more competitive. As we were watching the women’s finals yesterday, my wife made an observation that surprisingly didn’t even occur to me. The women rarely took charges, and relied more on playing actual defense by contesting and blocking shots. It was so refreshing to see. I was wondering why I couldn’t turn away, as I was apparently watching the beautiful game of basketball the way it was meant to be played…players against players, instead of players against actors. My one basketball wish would be to get rid of charging calls altogether. There is nothing more embarrassing in sports, then to see some of the greatest athletes in the world relegated to being actors. Take some pride, and try to move your feet to contest and block a shot. Yes, they may get dunked on, but at least they won’t look like the cowards that they look like now.

The women's semifinals had Kobe in attendance. I didn't notice if he was there yesterday. Both semifinal games went to overtime, including one three to tie the game to get it to OT. The same girl for Notre Dame that hit the game winner to beat UCONN in OT, also hit the game winner to win the national title. I hope the men's championship game tonight can come close to being as competitive and compelling.

Tarheels is having painful flashbacks to 2016 right now.

Also, is DiVincenzo the GOAT?  I feel like I'm watching a hybrid of Jason Williams and Tom Brady/Jesus.

Nova was never even tested in this tournament.  Terrific run.

You, my friend, are a saint.  When I didn't understand the utility of emojis, you modeled the way to breathe life into my posts.  When I never thought I'd receive a TP, I was gifted by a scholar and a gentleman.  When I internet-yelled at people over a person I judge with hardly any knowledge of who they actually are, you forgive me.  In short, bless you.

Well except for the fact that they lost the title by 17 points.
