Have to get to the Round of 32 first.

I have little confidence.

Yeah, pretty much.

The Pack is oddly like another team that wears red, white, and black that's based in Raleigh. You never know what team will show up.

It'll have to be UNC that advances to the sweet 16 if either team is going to advance. Zeller will rip apart our d. Howell and Leslie will end up with a few quick fouls and Zeller will do his thing.

The only chance State has is if Indiana is tired as hell from their previous game, and gives up a **** ton of transition opportunities.

But State only has a roster of 6.5 deep. Indiana has...what? 10?

Well, State needs to beat Temple first. Let's hope they don't forget that, even if some of us do.

Being a 6 means being a top 24 team, which we certainly were not, at any point during the year.

I guess you maybe could make an argument for us being a 7 seed, but is being an 8 and deserving a 7 really "getting screwed"?

When it's the difference between playing Georgetown or Kansas in Kansas City, yes.

But you're assuming us being a 7 would not have entirely shuffled around the bracket, which is probably a poor assumption.

UNC played like an 8 throughout the season, and they got an 8. In a season like this, playing a 2 instead of a 1 isn't really all that different, no one's really better than anyone else up near the top. It is what it is.

State has a better chance of beating Indiana than Carolina does of beating Kansas. I will say that. Neither will win though.

Agreed.

BTW, my prediction was a "bold" prediction, not what will actually happen. I don't think it's likely for either to win, but I think in both cases it's FAR more likely than the typical 1 vs. 8/9 matchup in tournaments past.

Just woke up to two Helium isotopes in my bedroom. My response?

"HeHe"

Also, if the Silver Surfer and Iron Man teamed up, would they be "Alloys"?

I'll finish by saying, I'll update more chemistry jokes....

.... periodically.

PS - Anyone know any good Sodium jokes?

Na?

Ya, I been drinking. What of it?? lol. There is nothing more dangerous in this world than a drunk mathematician with an MA

I know that feeling. I'm not quite ready to go to bed, so I watch some Weeds because they're only half an hour each. A season later...

With Julius Randle committing to Kentucky today, they now have

4 of the top 7
OR
5 of the top 11
OR
6 of the top 18 ranked 2013 college basketball prospects...with two more top-five players still out there with Kentucky on their short list.


**** you, Calipari.
