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

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.

      Cook, MN facebook page has a picture and info on it.  I don't know how to post a link, but here's the post-minus the photo.   The combination of record mild temperatures in late February and more seasonable temperatures in early March, has prompted dramatic ice movement on Lake Vermilion.... The south shore of Birch Point, which faces Big Bay, has seen some of the most extensive damage, as the ice has twisted lift docks, damaged boat houses, downed trees, and rearranged sizeable chunks of shoreline. Only a handful of docks along the heavily-developed lakeshore have so far escaped damage from the ice. Many docks have been damaged beyond repair. The pressure of expanding ice is typically relieved out in the lake, where large pressure ridges often form. But those ridges didn’t form as usual this year, and that left the shorelines vulnerable to the immense power of expanding ice. Lake property owners are likely to be shocked when they arrive back at their cabins and lake homes later this year. And the cost of repairs could be especially painful since, in many cases, the damage is likely not covered by insurance. “It will depend on their individual policies,” said Donna Mosher, with the Tower-Soudan Agency, which serves many Lake Vermilion property owners. She said standard insurance policies typically don’t cover ice movement, which can be a frequent source of property damage in areas where thick ice builds up in winter. Many property owners on Vermilion and other larger area lakes have turned to lift-out docks to minimize their risk of damage, but this year’s unusual conditions are leaving many of those docks damaged or destroyed as well. Some property owners do obtain insurance that includes a specific schedule or rider to cover more expensive docks, according to Mosher, but that’s usually the exception rather than the rule. “I’ve had to tell people ‘no’ already,” said Mosher. “It’s unfortunate.”

      The good news is you can't lose!  Let us know what you decide.

          Downriggers are not necessary but if you use them this time of year, don't go down  deep. I used to use boards but they were more complicated for others on my boat to use so it's small dipseys off the side or a clean line straight back. Spoons and sticks work well this time of year   Shallow and high. One year, I ran DR in the spring with the counter reading 6 feet.

      No problem, I always try to help out another fisherman whenever I can.  Squarebill crankbaits 12# fluoro would be good, but if you're talking lipless crankbaits I'd run that on 17# as well.  Here's how I have my baitcasters setup:   6'6" MH - 50# braid (Swim jigs, and topwater frogs) 7' MH - 15# mono with a  18" - 17# fluoro leader (Spinnerbaits/Chatterbaits) 7' MH - 17# fluoro (Jigs, Lipless Crankbaits) 7' M - 12# fluoro (Squarebill crankbaits)   Worms, tubes, jerkbaits and topwater poppers I use a spinning rod
