2019 March Madness Thread

Creating this because this 16/16 game is extremely entertaining. What a way to start the tournament. Jenkins for FDU is going off

Some other bold picks in there saw a UB final 4 pick and Murray St

That FDU/PVAM game was very entertaining. Hope some other people tuned in

That was a fantastic game to watch as a fan of college basketball. Hit the over on it... was an idiot to take Temple +3 after knowing Belmont was a superior team

Bleeding burnt orange and chicago maroon

So analytically, we're a one-seed! Oh, what could have been if JRob doesn't get hurt.....

I say this every year. Outside of watching VT play these 16/16 games are the best games of the tourney.

(add if applicable) /s

As a Belmont alum, I could not be happier for Coach Byrd. He runs a clean program and is one heck of a coach. More importantly, he's a class act and man of the highest integrity.

I was close to walking on for him at Belmont in 1993, after I transferred following my freshman year at VT.

I'll be rooting hard for the upset of Maryland tomorrow! Go Bruins and Go Hokies!

Virginian by Birth, Hokie by Choice

Go Belmont!

@hokie_rd

Buddy and I skipped out on work early to go to the Jax games. Rather large Maryland contingent, but I did my damndest to try and yell just as loud for Belmont. Really fun game to watch despite the outcome. Thought there were a few no calls against Maryland that could have swung momentum in the second half. Still, the way Belmont fought all the way was awesome.

NDSU through to face Duke. Better dig up that tape on the Bison so we're well prepared for the Sweet 16.

The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.

Rained out today (construction) so watching the first game(s) at Bdubs in Danville. Louisville not looking too hot. Not playing bad, just letting Minnesota get away with a lot of easy/stupid stuff.

Amateur superstar and idiot extraordinaire.

I have Minn winning that one, I really haven't been impressed with Louisville all season....I over estimated the impact of LSU not having their coach in the Yale game though, bad pick.

(add if applicable) /s

I about did. Went with my heart over my gut. When they're on, they're can play with anyone...they're just not "on" very often.

I shoulda gone with that sentiment......only miss so far

Heard from a very reliable source that police issued a search warrant for Ty Outlaw and Chris Clarke's apartment earlier this morning for suspicion of drugs.

Hmm. I don't think they would issue a warrant solely on only suspicion of drugs. This has to relate to distribution.

and my dark horse FSU team is scrambling against Vermont early

(add if applicable) /s

oh I didn't see that Vermont was playing in Hartford. That's a sneaky upset pick. Always go for the upsets where the low seed is playing close to home.

I mean FSU is just playing bad there were 54 total points in the first half....

so far so good, need FSU to play better in the 2nd half though

Yeah I'm done watching the other games if FSU doesn't win....

(add if applicable) /s

I have FSU and MSU both winning in my bracket, but it really wouldn't hurt my feelings too much if they both lost.

It would kill my TKP bracket, but would love to see Bradley keep up with their hot start and upset Sparty. I have the good guys beating them in the Elite Eight, but would just as soon not have to play them.

Shit just got real between Allbarn and NM St

"I regret nothing. The end." - Ron Swanson

Auburn may pull this one out, but man they don't deserve it.

The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.

My bud put 3 bets in all favorites. FSU, LSU, and Auburn. He's having a rough day.

Edit: If FSU blows this cover I'm gonna have to buy this guy a beer....

Edit 2: Wow a meaningless layup at the end of the game down 9 and he had it at FSU -8.5

(add if applicable) /s

ohhhhhhh my word what is going on?!?

Pass up a wide open layup to tie for a 3, which misses, but FOULED

"I regret nothing. The end." - Ron Swanson

This ending to the NM St. Auburn game is why this is the greatest time of year as a sports fan.

ohhh nooooooooo he missed the first

The news feed said there were 6.8 seconds 8 minutes ago and it is just hanging on 1 second. What is happening?

Nevermind. It caught up. 3 for 3

Man Allbarn didn't deserve that win, but it ain't about deserving it in March

That last shot wasn't even close

"I regret nothing. The end." - Ron Swanson

Forget the Zion cam, can we get a full game Chuck cam during Auburn games?

The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.

I took NM in my bracket because I thought they had a legit chance and one of my best friends went there. What a game

New Mexico St. snatched defeat out of the jaws of victory there at the end.

Is it basketball season yet?

Auburn tried to do that the entire half and somehow failed.

This was the game nobody wanted to win. Auburn won by default.

Only watched the last bit of NMSU-Auburn but it seemed like both teams were trying desperately to not win that game.

The Madness seems amplified this year. NM almost took Auburn, Yale wouldn't quit, Bradley is giving Sparty a go and Belmont is beating up on Maryland.

(add if applicable) /s

Belmont is pretty decent squad and I am not sold on the Big10 at all this year being much better than average.

At least 1 team that played in the First Four since 2011 has gone on to win at least one game in the Dance beyond that. Got a feeling Belmont could be it.

not sold on the Big10 at all this year being much better than average.

I've tried to make this argument on reddit. They always bring up the ACC-B1G challenge....except our teams went on to improve and their teams all got worse.

(add if applicable) /s

I don't understand why the playing games aren't set up for all of the 16 seeds. Kind of an advantage to come into a game as an 11 seed off a win....and on the flip side, there are 20 ranked below you that have a free pass to play in the big dance, not the play-in game if you lose.

I just assumed there was an obvious reason for this and never asked cause I didn't want to look stupid. So thanks for asking for me.

(add if applicable) /s

Not calling you out.......
Just wanted to respond to a relevant section. It doesn't make sense there are 14 seeds that get to travel, the kids get the experience, but someone worthy of an 11 seed might lose on Tuesday night, and miss out on the experience of the big show. If they are good enough to be in, put em in. Take the bottom 8 teams to play for the last 4 spots. And yes, I still believe UMBC would have still won last year!!!! Twice.

To you from failing hands we throw

@BuryHokie #ThanksFrank

google ftw

TL;DR - last 4 of 68 make up the 16 seed play-ins. The other 2 play-ins are the last 4 at large bids on the list which was 42-45 of 68 and they slide into the natural seed

I had Yale vs Belmont in the second round...maybe can get it half right

Now finish up them taters; I'm gonna go fondle my sweaters.

Bradley with an 8-0 run in 45 seconds and that place is hype

Anyone else noticing that ESPNs bracket is jacked up. I took FSU to win and it has it marked wrong and they are crossed out the next 2 rounds in my picks, unless its telling me the future

I'm sick over the Belmont ending. Coach Byrd has forgotten more basketball than I've ever known, but.... down 1 with 25 seconds and the last shot and he lets them play instead of calling a timeout to set up a play. And they (we) turn it over without even getting a shot off. That cannot happen.

As a Belmont alum, I'm sick.

Virginian by Birth, Hokie by Choice

That was a real dissapointing sequence. Even with 'one of my upsets' being the only tie I had to belmont, that was tough to watch.

New Sigline: lol it's football season.

Ja Morant is closing in on a triple double in an NCAA tournament game playing for a mid major. This dude is outrageous.

He's the real deal. Most have him as the #2 pick after Zion.

Murray State (12) is demolishing Marquette (5)!

Murray State was definitely the last team a team like Marquette wanted to see on that 12 line. Marquette stumbled backwards into the tournament.

That Oklahoma Gardner-Webb game ought to be fun to watch.

Here I was thinking that Cinncy was gonna blow out Iowa and the Ole Miss Okie game would be close.

(add if applicable) /s

I took OK, and feeling pretty good about that pick at the moment. I think it has more to do with having a mother and two sister in laws that went there though.

In classic March Madness style, watch Oklahoma, a team that probably shouldn't even be in and isn't in if the bubble hadn't been so weak this year, make a run.

Can't wait to watch a 16 beat a 1 again this afternoon :)

Seriously though, has there ever been more pressure on a #1 seed than there is on UVA right now? Gardner-Webb has never been to the tournament until this year, those kids don't even know to be nervous.

So I'm watching the lolhoo's on tru tv and the picture is compressed from side to side. I hit exit, get a full screen for a second or two, then back to compressed. Anyone else having this issue? Any ideas?

Reel men fish on Wednesdays

Are you using the tru tv stream? If so, you might have better luck on the March madness website.

Must be a provider issue. I'm not having the same problem.

Is it basketball season yet?

I have directv, but I think it was a glitch and after pushing every button I had on the remote and messing around, the picture came back to normal. Before it quit doing it, it also compressed top and bottom. Pretty annoying, but it's all good now and I thank you guys for your input.

Reel men fish on Wednesdays

loluva. that is all.

Down 10 halfway through the 1st. I can't imagine they were overlooking this game after last year

If they lose again it will be the biggest laughingstock in the history of sports. The history of sports.

Zion Cam

"Because of Zion [Williamson], we have added a camera dedicated to him the whole time he is on the floor," CBS coordinating producer of college basketball Marc Wolff told The State. "We hired a cameraman, a camera, a digital tape machine to record everything he does."

Not surprising, considering there was a camera focused on him the entire game against VT when all he did was sit on the bench

Now finish up them taters; I'm gonna go fondle my sweaters.

I'd rather play Liberty than Miss State ... hope Liberty can end this game and VT wins tonight obviously

Liberty needs to lose in everything. I hate them in every way possible, they're an awful institution run by awful people.

The person in our tournament bracket who is leading picked LOLUVA to win the whole thing and Liberty to win this game, I only have one question. Who hurt you?

It was close. It should've gone to OT at least, because that last scoring play by LSU was definitely a travel. But oh well, can't say that I feel bad for Maryland. *shrug*

Ja Morant is a total beast. He makes everything look so effortless and has completely dominated both of the tourney games he has played so far. Too bad FSU is about to end his season.

Murray St is out matched, they are getting fucking smoked.

FSU is a good team no discredit to them but Murray St played defense on like 20% of FSUs possession.

What a boring day for march madness...

Purdue did a number of a few of my brackets. Auburn did a number on all my brackets.

I have Purdue to the elite 8, but Auburn whupping Kansas is a mild surprise

I felt like Auburn was a bracket buster either way. Either they would come out and lose in the first round, or stay hot for a run to the sweet 16 or Elite 8. So since I picked the lose in the 1st round, clearly they will take the latter option.

Tournament update:

All my Sweet 16 teams except Louisville and Wisconsin are still in.

Unfortunately, it doesn't translate to gambling. Even betting small with 3 team parlays, I ended up down $280 in Charles Town Hollywoood Casino thanks to a 1 for 15 performance on my parlay bets. Purdue last night was a great bet, but I parlayed the the under instead of the over and Carsen Edwards went insane. LSU crushed me twice by allowing the opponent to cover by peanuts. VT won for me, but I parlayed it with Iowa State.

My winner was a parlay tag teaming Gardner Webb and Liberty. If I had just put $20 on each game and taken the underdog, I would be killing it right now. Underdogs absolutely killed the line the last two days.

Anyway, no bets today. Hopefully VT can pull it off today.

Five star get after it 100 percent Juice Key-Playing. MAN

Has Nova, Wisconsin, and Marquette in, otherwise intact.

___

-What we do is, if we need that extra push, you know what we do? -Put it up to fully dipped? -Fully dipped. Exactly. It's dork magic.

I lost Wisconsin and Kansas but the rest of my sweet 16 is still in play pending today's contests

I still have 15/16 Sweet 16 teams alive. I missed on Iowa State.

"For those who have passed, for those to come, reach for excellence."

Same. I have 15/16 Sweet 16 teams. UC Irvine was my only pick that failed.

My one miss was having Belmont in the sweet 16 beating out Yale in the second round.

My best bet so far was the liberty ML. I won a couple other ML parlays but with low return. Parlayed the Houston and VT ML for tonight. Not a huge risk but in ok with nickel and diming

How was that a double dribble on Zion? To be dribbling, lose the ball and touch it with 2 hands then keep dribbling...

"I'm too drunk to taste this chicken" - Colonel Sanders via Ricky Bobby

Unreal that UCF didn't get that follow up to fall

What a Duke way to win. Get the no call push off on the rebound to go ahead and then have ucf rim out on the layup and put back.

My bracket is ok with all of that.

FAM!! Sweet 16!!!!!

Pain is Temporary, Chicks Dig Scars
Glory is Forever, Let's Go Hokies!!

Crazy to see 1 vs 4 in two pools, 1 vs 5 in a pool and 1 vs 12/13 in the other and all of the 2 vs 3 matchups in the Sweet Sixteen. not a lot of crazy upsets this year, looks like the Tournament selection was pretty on point this year.

“THE CUP IS GOING NOWHERE MIKEY!!! THEY DID IT SOMEHOW!!”

It is about to start getting crazy this weekend after a #4 knocks off a #1.

The NCAA March Madness app (on FireTV) was driving me crazy this weekend. If I hit home to exit the app and came back to it later, it didn't update the scores/feeds, and I had to Force Stop the app in order to get a new feed to play. Was anybody else having this issue?

First year app, probably not load tested enough, is my guess.

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

Good god Purdue Tennessee is an awesome game. Just massive shot after massive shot in an amazing environment.

Is Kyle Guy really the leading the 3-PT FG % shooter in the ACC? Thought I heard it was Outlaw but I can't find any stats using the Google. I ask because the anouncers said Guy was a few mins ago in the broadcast.

Where's the beef?

You are correct, Outlaw is not:

ACC 3 Pt. FG %

Is it basketball season yet?

Which is BS, because he should be on this list (either 1st or 2nd). I'm guessing not enough attempts to qualify for the percentage stat?

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

UVA has been playing away from their tendency to use the whole shot clock on offense since the first media timeout.

The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.

I'm not sure why Oregon feels the need to chase Clark around on D. He hurts you when you guard him (assists). He isn't going to score enough for it to matter.

Is it basketball season yet?

Amin is going to make the All-Flop team for that one.

The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.

Entire Oregon team playing heroball for the last three minutes probably cost them the game.

The Orange and Maroon you see, that's fighting on to victory.

Was just thinking the same thing. UVA is lucky that Oregon began jacking up ridiculous 3-PT attempts only down 3 with 2 minutes left.

Where's the beef?

That was hard to watch. Launching 3s early in the shot clock like they were down 10 in desperation time.

So annoying that UVA has played such a soft schedule and played so awful yet they're in the elite 8.

Fuck LOLUVA, that's all I have to say.

Waho's suck
Uva swallows

Watching UNC/Auburn with UNC shooting foul shots. Auburn fans behind the basket are yelling, "You're not gonna make it! No, you ain't gonna make it! You're not gonna make it [something something]."

You've amused me, Auburn. Well done.

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

It's a great cheer, heard them doing that during last weekend's games. Changing the words to We're not going to take it by Twisted Sister.

Edit - here's a good version of it.

I'm digging these team USA unis for Auburn.

I cannot FUCKING how many of these teams overlooked uva this year. Anybody that loses to uva only has themselves to blame. Bunch of dumbfuck failures. Committee pretty much set them up for a Final 4 appearance because almost every team in their bracket are incompetent. They DAMN well better NOT make it to the Championship.

I hate uva as much as the rest of you guys, but this may be the most ridiculous comment I've ever read on this site. They are ranked #1 in BOTH offensive and defensive efficiency, have the best guard duo in the country, and have depth. That is the recipe for success in the tournament. They also have a MASSIVE chip on their shoulder from what happened last year. I guarantee you no one is overlooking them. They have been the best regular season team in basketball over the past 4-5 years.

"For those who have passed, for those to come, reach for excellence."

but this may be the most ridiculous comment I've ever read on this site.

This in & of itself is preposterous because it insinuates that you 'may' have read EVERY SINGLE COMMENT on this site. Color me unconvinced of that.

They are ranked #1 in BOTH offensive and defensive efficiency

While I can concede & even (to a point) agree on the part about the defensive rankings, I'm not sold at all on the offense. Competent? Sure. But nothing impressive.

have the best guard duo in the country, and have depth

And yet all that was not enough against Duke or FSU.

I guarantee you no one is overlooking them.

Ok. Exactly HOW & WHAT are your tangible guarantees?

They have been the best regular season team in basketball over the past 4-5 years.

While I'll concede they are 1 of the best, stating that they are unquestionably the best is debatable at best.

I hate uva as much as the rest of you guys

So why did you downvote an anti-uva tirade? Doesn't suggest a ton of support for this section of your response.

"It's always great to beat UVA, that makes us all smarter and better looking for a couple days".

And I'm not trying to argue wit you or start shit with anyone on here. I'm just venting my frustration & distaste at how far uva has been allowed to go in this tourney. Being that this is a Hokie sports website, I thought it'd be ok. Only on TKP I guess...

Upvoted this post, as nothing in it is worthy of a downvote.

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

You probably want to get used to the thought of them winning it all

They are the best team in the country. Most complete team and best coached team. And they are not going away anytime soon. If they don't win it this year, they will in the next 5.

As an aside, the answers you seek probably won't be found in the bottom of the bottle you are obviously gripping tight tonight.

This & the Calm Down Bro are absolutely fair. But I think it's fascinating that an anti uva tirade rant gets downlegged on a Virginia Tech sports website. Kinda have to shake my head and laugh in bewildering amazement at the irony of it.

I hate LOLUVA as much as the next Hokie, but Tony Bennett is a great coach and an even better dude. I'm not terribly happy that LOLUVA made it to the final four (I know several insufferable fans), but I'm happy for Tony Bennett.

He's definitely an architect. But not breaking the flow of one dude dropping 42 when the ACC defensive player of the year is on him for many of those points is a coaching lapse and damn near cost them the game.

I don't know how feasible it is to scheme away a player sprinting up the court, stopping on a dime, and draining a 3 from 28 feet.

Tough to see UVA have a similar shot to tie/win the game and come up with the clutch shots. Gotta give it to them though, they are a talented team. Without Hunter next year they will still be elite but not top 5 good.

UVa deserved that win. They didn't lose their cool in spite of Perdue's Edwards nailing threes from all over the place with damn near impunity.

They managed to tie it with a clutch shot at the end of regulation, and accepted nothing short of a win in overtime.

If I'm being perfectly honest, the reason I'm pissed about LOLUVa winning is that they lucked their way into a game tying shot (mad scramble following the missed FT, Purdue forgetting to guard the guy hanging out by the basket,etc) and we failed to tie it up with an otherwise perfectly executed inbounds play.

Also, FUCK LOLUVa. Every single one of their players short of Hunter just screams "douchebag." I'm glad Edwards straight up embarrassed them and I just wish Purdue could have brought this one home.

Edwards embarrassed everyone Purdue played. He hit threes with random abandon.

To UVa's credit, they didn't let him push them off their game plan. I give them credit for winning that game. The luck you have in a tournament is due to the work you did all season.

Kentucky is throwing this one away so hard. Had an easy chance to end it in regulation and then forgot to play in overtime.

Figures. I put down a big (for me) bet on the Kentucky ML as a safe-ish way to get my betting account back up a little after Purdue shat the bed yesterday. Don't gamble kids, you'll lose it all.

It's like uva's style of play is completely foreign to any team outside the conference and they end up getting in their own fucking way. C'mon dammit! It's NOT fucking rocket science.

Bad calls at the end, touch foul in a game where nothing was called. Not even double dribble.

The double dribble was missed, but the foul at the end was a legit foul. That's on Auburn.

Borderline in a game where nothing was called. You don't start calling touches at the last shot of the game. AU robbed any way you slice it.

That was nowhere close to just a touch foul. The auburn player hit Guys legs before he shot it and then also landed in his space.

Guy missed the shot and the ref bailed him out. Slight contact after the shot was half way to the rim had no impact on the shot. Ref's missed the double dribble, and then bailed them out on the foul call. Auburn robbed. UVA sucks.

Slight contact after the shot was halfway to the rim

The ball was still in his hand...

Even if whatever you think you saw was the case, it is still a foul. You can't land underneath the shooter. The shooter owns the space beneath him when he goes up vertically.

I feel awful for that Auburn team and Chuck. If Tech ever makes it to a CFP or basketball Final Four and loses like that I'm going to be a mess.

Watched the game at Auburn Arena with my rising AU freshman. It was a brutal ending. Great quote from an AU alum when I asked him how AU being in the final four compares to the Iron Bowl. He answered simply, "It doesn't, not even close". SEC is all football.

Tonight's the night where I completely give up caring about sports.

A 2 loss tournament is about to play for, and win a national title, because the NCAA feels bad that they were the first #1 to lose to a #16... Nothing they've done since the beginning of March has been "earned". They've played awful basketball and reap the benefits because CBS wants a rags to riches story line.

They have gotten the benefit of some lucky breaks, but there is no way you can honestly say a team that is 34-3 has played awful basketball and isn't deserving.

Dunno I kind of agree with him they haven't played all that well they shut out teams for big stretches yet can't ever put teams away regardless hopefully it catches up to them in the next game cause it would be unbearable of they win the next one

Directions from Blacksburg to whoville, go north till you smell it then go east until you step in it

I think he means awful basketball in the tournament, awful is probably not fair but they definitely haven't been playing like they were in the regular season.

Since March, they have indeed played awful basketball.

And to physically lose 2 games (back to back) in the tournament, regardless of the fact that the score book shows them with a higher score at the end of games, they will be the first 2 loss team to win a NCAA Championship.

If uva is playing awful basketball, I hope we can at least play like shit next year. Might not be too much of a drop off.

Chick Patty w/ Cheese

They have had the benefit of an unusually weak draw throughout their regional bracket, and then played the national semifinal against an underdog already missing their best player and with three other starters having to play while sick. They are a very good team that has also been very very fortunate. That's not mentioning the referees missing a blatant double dribble tonite that should have ended their charmed run.

I agree with everything you said, and nothing that you said constitutes playing any worse than well enough.

Chick Patty w/ Cheese

Bullshit

This is an embarrassingly bad take and I hope you regret it.

If Texas Tech goes through and UVA gets to play another team down a starter from injury I'm going to be just a little peeved.

They already have the title according to CBS, Monday night is just a formality.

So here's a twist on the uva game I've thought on.

IF the refs don't call the foul on doughty late and UVA moan about the no call we'd all be saying how they shouldn't have had the shot in the first place so the right team would've won right?
Just one fellas thoughts

This is not good for Tech fans. You know it's coming. "Virginia Tech doesn't have a major National Championship. [We] at least got one in basketball." How could people let this happen? Is it there athletic funding? I mean fuck. Who actually thought that UVA would win a hoops Championship before Tech gets one in football? Wrestling and football aside (although now there's a glaringly noticeable asterisk beside that), they're really a superior athletic program to us. Gotta face the fucking facts. In terms of athletic budget how far behind are we to them? What can we do to just draw even with them? I can't say anything more. There's is the superior. I never believed this would happen (certainly not before us). I was delusional.

We have literally decades to go until we duplicate their overall success.

And when they win the Natty on Monday, they have the trump card to always play on us. Basketball Natty title trumps everything we've done. Period. It just does.

In a way it'll be good for us because it'll make our athletic department realize that we need to actually fucking go for a national title for once. We've been coasting too long taking pride that we are soooooo much better than UVa in the sports that count. But them with a Natty in a sport that does? Can't ignore that.

This man is speaking the damn truth. There's alot of Tech fans that think oh we beat Uva in football we're so much of a better then them. But that's far from the case they're on the verge of winning a major national championship and they won the baseball championship not too long ago. And I'm sick and tired of it. I don't want Tech too just be better than Uva I want them to be better than every damn university in D1 sports.

When in doubt. Nap it out

Can we legitimately say that we are better than UVA in any major sport right now? Yeah we kept the streak alive in football this year by some stroke of crazy luck, but they are getting better each year and have a lot of momentum going into next season. Meanwhile we just had our worst season in 30 years and appear to be heading backwards, with so much secrecy around our program that we wall off all media and fan access and frankly cause a lot of people to lose interest. I mean thank goodness we do this super covert stuff, wouldn't want something horrible like getting blown out against GT or upset by ODU to happen. I hate to be a debbie downer but we are inching further and further away from relevance as a national football power, and just when we have basketball coming together, our coach leaves and takes everything along with him. This basketball hire is huge, maybe even bigger than when we hired Buzz, and this upcoming football season likely one of the most important in a long time for the direction of the program.

Monday night, we are all red raiders. I want to go into work Tuesday to a lot of LOLUVa fan complaining about the refs or some other such loser nonsense

Exactly. Hunter swatted that ball out of bounds his pinky didn't change directions of that ball and certainly didn't change the outcome of how it went out of bounds. This is by definition how replay ruins games. They got the call "right" but historically wrong.
