Things looking dicey for the Hoosiers. Down 11 with 10:46 to go.

Hoosiers in some trouble... down 14 with less than 8 minutes to play now, Syracuse with the ball too.

They're dead. They have no answer for the zone.

When Zeller isn't getting bailed out by the refs, he kind of just an average player

He just kinda sucks. Guy is afraid to shoot the ball.

Crean just doesn't know how to prepare. I respect what he's done for the program. He can recruit with the best of them and he's very good at developing talent: Wade and Oladipo the 2 best examples. But he simply can't coach. He doesn't know how to prepare for teams that don't want to play their style and he doesn't know how to make adjustments.

You've been thinking about that a lot lately. A whole lot.

BTW, I got some **** for picking Syracuse over IU on here. Not looking to brag or for people to eat crow, but this is typical IU. I knew it was possible.

I've known that he couldn't coach for 2-3 years now

People thought I was on crack cocaine for not having IU past the Sweet 16.

And my bracket had homer all over it.

IU was the worst matchup for Cuse outside of Duke and they blew it.

Mine usually does, but I can do that.

I believe you. You seem to be taking it alright. I just love making fun of that IM he sent to a mistress/recruit.

Let me put it to you this way, the Hawks weren't knocked out.

I love IU. I take a lot of pride in the place I earned my degree, but IU basketball isn't the be all end all like it is for a lot of people I know.

Kind of funny seeing 80% of my pool basically eliminated.

I didn't pick IU to go far, knowing everyone else would. Had Cuse in the Final Four, and have Duke over Florida in the championship. I need some money, let's make this happen!

Even though we beat Syracuse earlier in the season, I don't feel good about playing them now. Really wanted to play IU and beat Crean.

I just knew that if I did that there'd be at most 2-3 others that did. And since their odds to win it all had to be like 5 to 1 at worst, it's a pretty good bet to make.

Next to last place in my pool, but have the most potential points still left in that pool as well, so I'm still alive.

Miami had a great run but choose the worst night to have a bad night.

Really bitter sweet too. This team will be gone next year with Larkin going to the NBA and the rest of the core being seniors and this team was good enough to win it all. However I also didn't expect to see this and maybe these guys have gotten Miami started down the right path to have a good basketball program for years to come, similar the way the football team did.

Tom Crean still hasn't figured out that Syracuse is running the 2-3 zone.
