    LOL@ Virginia! They owned Duke and Carolina all season only to get bounced by Deleware County MD??

    Go that way really REALLY fast. If something gets in your way, TURN!

    It's actually a really good school and in a lot of technical/IT/scientific/engineering areas it's one of the very best in the country.

    I’ve had players of mine play baseball there......they barely got out of HS....and UMBC was one of the only schools that accepted their dumb asses......So my experience is much different than yours......

    I could care less.....I was just pissed and bitter that they beat UVM to get into the tourney.

    University of Maryland...different story....great school...would be better though if they went back to ACC.

    Yeah they have a tough road recruiting I think, they don't have the pull of a lot of "name" schools, it wouldn't amaze me if they make academic allowances for kids they think can help them athletically, because they're trying pretty hard to raise their name recognition factor.

    Yes, agree....every school has a niche’ and I’m sure UMBC is a good/great school for many kids...the pitcher we have down there now seems to be doing ok. He’s a great kid...he just wasn’t known for his “academics”.

    I think the fact that it is in/near Baltimore probably makes a negative impact as well. (Although I always had a good time in Baltimore.)

    Johns Hopkins doesn’t let Baltimore interfere with business.

    True
    or Loyola, or Towson, but they are what we like to call “the suburbs”.

    Fuck, ya know, Loyola needs to keep their chins up. 2:00 to go, they're gonna lose. They did all they could. They did great, amazing. Bravo.

    I'd root for Kansas solely based on the fact that Devonté Graham is from Raleigh. That's great, and it's enough.

    totally separate from the fact that if Kansas wins out I win the pool. really.

    Kansas has always crushed me, ever since Kirk Heinrich back in the day. I like to see them win, tho.

    Looks tough for KU. Which would be fine for me except that it means it looks good for Villanova.

    They never came to play. Not actually a jayhawk fan, I just tend to pick them in my brackets. But have made myself stop that craziness.
