madness is comming

14 posts in this topic

it's getting on that time of year again! i can't wait, may have to call in sick on the first day. it's crazy how little fanfare college hoops gets out here in cali. too many pro teams i guess. or maybe not enough in the midwest. it's just too good to miss. cool.gif

Nothing better than March Madness. I am going to be on a cruise from the 24th-31st. I will be spending a lot of time in the sports bar the days there are games!!!! Who's your pick? I can't decide between UCLA or UNC.....

That Texas vs. A&M game last night was just a preview of what's to come. Let the madness begin!

My sleepers: Memphis and Louisville

as much as i hate to say it my only pick is ucla. not a big ucla guy, but they look pretty good. perhaps if another team has the right bracket, they could get the job done. florida is awesome, just no depth. i'd say unc is too young, but that really doesn't seem to matter anymore. i'd look for all red jerseyed big ten teams to get to the sweet 16, then all loose. the big 12 is a little down, i don't expect much from them. not sure about the big east teams or any of the other pac ten teams that were so hot early.

i just said alot of nothing, so i guess i'm still going with ucla frown.gif

I agree with a lot of what you are saying, but doesn't Texas look a lot like Syracuse when they made that great run a few years ago with Carmello. Carmello-Durant???? Playing good at the right time????

i lke durant, for a 'hot' team i like maryland. i went to iowa state, but will most often take a hot acc team over a hot big 12 team. that being said i can kinda see kansas making some noise. i realize that contadicts what i said earlier, but that's why they call it madness cool.gif

March Madness is far and away the best basketball of the year!

College basketball is still basketball. The NBA is not really basketball.

wow, what a weekend of ncaa hoops. after watching that kansas texas game, it makes me rethink my big 12 knock. they both looked like final 4 teams to me. and seeing ucla loose and ohio state struggle. it's gonna be a fun tourney.

watched the duke unc game today. i hate to say it but duke isn't even fun to watch. there were many times when there offense never made it inside the three point arc. not half the movement they had with reddick.

      Last year it was Dec. 26th before they opened the road up out of Morris pt. for 4 wheelers. Thinking its looking like that again this year. Hope I can hold out. Between the ice show and this website getting very fired up.

      Yep. I'm on Schultz's Bay. Which side are you on?   Had to head in to Alex today around noon so I took a little side trip to Manthey's Bay because that is typically the first area that has walkable ice. Stood at the 145th Ave access. To the right was all open water, straight out was ice for maybe 30 feet and then open water and that extended to the left into Manthey's Bay for a ways. The rest of the Bay looked frozen over from what I could see from there. Nothing anywhere on the lake looks like it would be walkable yet. Lots of ice on the lake and still making more. The winds have been keeping small pockets of water open scattered through out the ice that has formed so the ice thickness is going to be very inconsistent for a while. The winds have started to die down so with calmer winds I would think the lake might lock up in the next day or two. Just so the snow stays away for Saturday.

      Picked up my first custom rod, a TUCR power noodle, the new black Betty free fall and plenty of tungstens!

      This afternoon I checked Norris lake and it is locked up except for a few small holes in the middle.  Twin lakes on the other hand is wide open. Pic is of Twin lake.
