2017 NCAA Tournament

Here's our catch all thread for the Big Dance.  Waiting on the B1G and AAC to wrap up before they announce.  I think Kentucky opens as 2 seed v 15 Northern Kentucky.  Florida will get a 4-5,  South Carolina a 7, Arkansas an 8, and Vandy a 10.  Thats my prediction.

Kentucky was the top 2 seed, so naturally they reward us with rematches against UCLA and UNC.

Duke and UNC are close to home, again. Why the bracket, again? I think we have played them in the tourny more times than anyone else.

South Carolina got a higher seed for some reason and gets Duke on the other side if they both win.

The committee showed they really value the regular season more.  The brackets were essentially done yesterday.  Calipari called them out on it by going to bat for the SEC and pointing out that some conference tournament titles will move you up 2-3 seed lines (ACC & Duke) whereas others (SEC/Pac 12) apparently dont mean a damn thing to them (see UK amd A&M last year.)  So that being said, Carolina finished ahead of y'all and thats why.  I agree that if the SECT is to have any integrity y'all should have switched seeds.

Not to mention locations and matchups they would like to make or avoid.

Also I would prefer the auto bids go to regular season champs, particularly the one bid leagues. For them, the conference tourny games, and money games, are the only ones that matter

If we can make it to Duke in the second round I will be happy.

Part of it is we got screwed last season so I'm sure the NCAA gave us a bit of break.  But having Duke in our bracket wasn't too much of a break.

      Also will never tell you it's got a headache when you get a few beers in you and decide to throw some meat in it...   I bought a Kamado knockoff a few years ago and love it. My egg didn't survive the move back to Mississippi and I just couldn't pull the trigger on another. For big grillin and smoking I built my own out of an old propane tank cut down by 1/3rd. Can do about ten Boston butts at a time. Smoked a half-dozen and pulled them for the fire dept and ems this past Wednesday. Did 24 half chickens at once last fall. Drawback is it takes a pile of charcoal to get it hot and keep it going.

      Been way too long but we finally got a 5* commitment. Obviously a long way to go but hopefully we can hold on to him. This class really could end up being something special. https://southcarolina.rivals.com/news/five-star-defensive-end-zacch-pickens-commits-to-gamecocks   The state's top overall prospect decided not to wait. Originally planning to make his decision towards the end of his senior season, Anderson (S.C.) T.L. Hanna class of 2019 five-star defensive end  Zacch Pickens  committed to South Carolina Friday, according to sources at his spring game.   It was a team recruiting effort from the Gamecocks as head coach Will Muschamp, defensive line coach Lance Thompson, defensive coordinator Travaris Robinson and linebackers coach Coleman Hutzler all had a strong role in landing the nation's No. 16 overall prospect. Pickens was last on South Carolina's campus earlier this spring for a cookout event. Pickens, considered the No. 3 strongside defensive end in the country by Rivals, chooses South Carolina over offers from Alabama, Florida State, Clemson, Georgia, Nebraska, North Carolina, Penn State, Tennessee, Texas A&M, Vanderbilt, Virginia Tech and West Forest.  It was believed throughout the process that Clemson and Georgia were the two other top contenders. Pickens is the 12th commitment to Carolina's 2019 class.       This commitment bumps us up to #8 for the time being.

      Go back and read the article and it’s obvious. McCain can summon congress to work on a bipartisan healthcare bill? How long has he had to work on it? And what did he do, cast his vote to spit in the face of the bill he and republicans had all that time to work on. He can pass tax reform to create jobs? That’s already been done. He can continue his leadership on immigration reform and global warming? Just lol. Just admit that McCain spoke out against Trump on some issues so now he’s a hero to you when you wouldn’t have given him a second thought otherwise.
