My Thoughts on March Madness So Far

kdlabel

What’s going on everyone? Hopefully you all have been well. We’re coming off a really nice win Wednesday over the Houston Rockets and now we’ve got the defending champion Lakers in town on Friday.

But of course the Big Dance is back again tonight and this weekend, so I figured I’d talk a little college hoops here.

First off, I did have a chance to watch a few games last weekend, and I saw some pretty good ones. Two of the best ones I was able to see were Villanova-St. Mary’s and Maryland-Michigan State. Of course, I saw my Texas Longhorns lose in the first round, and that was a real tough loss. But overall, it’s been a real fun tournament. Of course, whoever filled out a bracket, they’re all messed up now because Kansas lost. That shows how good each team that makes the tournament is and how every game is key.

A lot of players have caught my eye, too, aside from the obvious guys like John Wall, Evan Turner and DeMarcus Cousins. There’s Jimmer Fredette from BYU, he had a great tournament. Omar Samhan from St. Mary’s, he’s having a great tournament. Jordan Crawford played really well for Xavier. There’s a lot of guys. Jacob Pullen is playing very well. It’s a great group of guys and it’s going to be fun to see what they can do for their teams this weekend.

As far as the Sweet Sixteen goes, I really want to see Cornell and Kentucky. A lot of people are already writing Cornell off but I think they might have the right tools to go to the Final Four. I also want to see Northern Iowa play, too. I like the underdogs so it’s cool for a small school to be up in the Sweet Sixteen and Elite Eight.

And if I had to choose any favorites, it’s got to be Kentucky or Syracuse. Those two have a good chance to win it and it’d be cool to see a group of young guys like Kentucky win it all or Syracuse as well. It’s going to be fun to watch and I’m looking forward to it.

Who do y’all have this weekend? Did anyone pick Northern Iowa to upset Kansas? Let me now in my comments section.

    na i didn't have kansas losing to uni….but i def got cornell over kentucky too, and butler over syracuse. UPSETS CONTINUE. by the way KD, what do you think of damion james from texas? think he'll be a good NBA player??

  • Jackson

    I gotta go with the mountaineers. Zero final fours since Jerry West?? That's wack…they're overdue. They need to win one for Pittsnogle, and I still think they'll have enough momentum to survive darryl bryant's injury.

    You know the CrazyMSULady is pulling for the Spartans, but have hurt players, so hope other guys can step up. I like the young guys of KY too, and then maybe they will all go pro, lol
    Good luck in your games!

    Oh how I wish you went to Maryland. Hope it stays exciting. It’s been a great March Madness so far. Oh and what happened to DISQUS?

    It has been a really crazy year in this year's tournament. My bracket is really messed up. I have also been impressed a lot by the mid major players th such as Jimmer Fredette that have had success in this years tournament.

    I sure thought Kansas would go much futher than they did, but I did think they were somewhat over rated. I gotta stick with the Big 12 and root for Kansas State.

    Gotta go for K-State here. It's time for the “other” Kansas team to take the spotlight. I always like to see an underdog or a team that has not historically been a powerhouse go a long ways in the tourney.

  • Thunder35

    Kansas was my pick to win it all, but now I want Kentucky to win. They got a lot of young guys, and I think it would be great to see them lead the team to the National Championship. Good luck tonight, KD! Go Thunder!!!!

  • Kenny

    I don't follow the bracket… just too lazy I guess, ahaha….
