2017 NCAA Tournament Games Thread

Yeah, I think MTSU beats Minnesota and picked NW to get by Vandy. We’ll see how it goes.

Edit: Man, I’ve seen SDSU miss about 4 point-blank layups. This could be a really interesting game if they hit the bunnies.


#22

Yea I picked mtsu to the sweet sixteen just bc I didn’t like the other teams in their pod but butler looking good today.


#23

I believe I picked MTSU to the S16 as well (at least in one of my brackets).


#24

I did so as well, despite it being such a popular pick as to no longer be contrarian.


#25

My best friend is a big time sports bettor. He ( and I’m not kidding ) bet $300 on every underdog in today’s NCAA games.


#26

MTSU looking solid against Minnesota.


#27

Both Minnesota and Northwestern are slight underdogs in their games today.


#28

Minny was an underdog playing MTSU in Milwaukee? That seems a little much.


#29

Minny +1.5
NW +2


#30

Does it though?


#31

How many minutes a game does Reggie Lynch actually participate?


#32

I mean, Minny was thirteen spots higher in kenpom (24 in sagarin), playing much closer to home. I’m not surprised MTSU is winning, and I picked them in my bracket, but having them favored seems a reflection of how the public was betting, not how the sharps actually thought the game would go. But maybe I’m wrong.


#33

It seems pretty normal after getting an opportunity to watch these MTSU guys again. Haha. They are still pretty damn good…12 seed seems outrageous.


#34

MTSU was a great Cinderella story last year, returns most of the same team, and Richard Pitino coaches Minnesota.


#35

Loss of Springs leaves no perimeter threat either


#36

You know what, you guys convinced me.


#37

I picked them as an emotional pick–sort of a tribute for beating MSU–but now that I watch them again…wow…it was a rational choice :slight_smile:


#38

I went with MN thinking there was no way MTSU would catch lighting in a bottle against a B1G team again. But forgot the power of the JR Pitino effect. Darn.


#39

What’s happening to NW right now is what scares me tomorrow. They’ve been comfortably in control of this game, just take a 15 pt lead and feeling good, then BOOM 9 straight for Vandy in less than two minutes.

That tech was so idiotic. What was he possibly thinking? If he get’s a better job offer, somehow, he should take it and run; people are going to realize he cant coach.
