Back in the late 70's my mom would let me stay home on the friday of the start of the acc tournament.



I remember growing up teachers would wheel in TVs during the ACC tourney
Of course being in NC it was all about the big 3 Duke UNC and NC state
Most the kids with parents that went to UNC or State.

The Duke fans always random kids with no connection to either two school.
And this of course during Duke’s runs in the 90s and 2000s so they were always a threat.
Duke never had many kids with parents that went to the schools. As I got older we could tell that if your mom or dad went to Duke you were most likely a Yankee


Clemson with the loss today to NC State, i think their bubble has burst, especially with Saint Mary’s getting the autobid.

First game in the SEC tonight at 7. UGA Mizzou followed by Vandy-A&M

The real question, will Vandy lose 19 conference games this year? That’s got to be rare

re: Gamecock Board March Madness Thread
Saw this today not sure how true it is but makes you scratch your head on this whole Gonzaga circle jerk.

quote:

Why is Gonzaga “locked in as a 1 seed”?
Compare them to Houston
Q1: Zaga 4-3 Houston 5-2
Q2: Zaga 6-0 Houston 9-0
SOS: Zaga 58 Houston 57

Houston also in the much better conference

Please help me understand why Gonzaga is “locked” as a 1 but Houston would never be considered


Sorry I'm a big AntiZags.

My hate is coming out.

I just have to somewhat agree with the whole “blind resume” thing
You and I both know certain names carry more weight

Gonzaga has been on this magical run the last 20 years and just because they started in the first poll very high they will get a #1 seed for staying in that top 5 for the majority of the season

They had a good OOC record but plowed through the WCC which is absolutely dog shite

I don't think this is even one of Mark Few's top 5 best teams since he's been there. you're right that their name is now getting them so generous perception from the media and likely the selection committee.

Houston was pretty damn good the night they handled LSU's athleticism and Waters quite well in beating the tigers in a slugfest.

those numbers clearly favor Houston.

re: Gamecock Board March Madness Thread
really good one going on now with Florida keeping it close.

UNC-Duke tonight will be a barn burner.

Great slate of games all day/weekend.

re: Gamecock Board March Madness Thread
why is Kentucky getting screwed out of a 1 seed by losing a SF game to Top 5 all season Tennessee and North Carolina gets awarded a 1 national seed by losing to Dyke?

think I recall UK cutting NoCar's arse by double digits most of 40 minutes back before Christmas.

Unc beat duke twice this year , though without Zion, and really should have beat them this last time when they had zion.

re: Gamecock Board March Madness Thread
random thought with Colonial Life hosting NCAAs this weekend for the first time since the Arena opened in 2002 - if the City of Cola dares allow the NCAA to put down a court that contains colors of a certain other school in SC not located in Columbia. - some heads need to roll.

Charlotte court had red border last year

Nashville had green

either of those two colors are completely fine for Columbia.

I don't care about the color.

Our logo will be in the corner.

That's all that matters.

the only thing that was more annoying than kids at school pulling for Duke or UNC during basketball season(because we were always shit)

were the ohio fricks who "also pulled" for the Buckeyes.

Must be really dumb if you couldn't get into your own state's state school.

(says the guy who couldn't get into UNC)

Furman/SoCon made sure their floor was purple after the site was relocated from Charlotte in 2017.

I will not be surprised one damn bit if a few city "officials" in Columbia who hate Carolina roll out orange - just wait.

Ill be in Vegas Thursday-Sunday for the games.

Im not doing a bracket this year because of this.

Although it's now legal in a lot of states...

Boiler Up, all month long.

Purdue v UTK in the Sweet 16 would be a lot of fun, and give me excuse to be obnoxious here in Volhalla.
