I would have hoped that X would have been left closer to home .... seems like everyone in that foursome would have been better served by playing in Dayton.  I miss the good old days (pre-9/11)when teams were sent to a site with everybody else in their 8 team bracket.   The NCAA might as well treat it like the women's bracket and schedule home games. 

Lobo, you obviously know and understand the process.  Applause!!!  We're not worthy! 

You're probably beating me head to head today!  Good luck on that also.  I hope to see you in the "Beer" hall for a nice dance.

Man, you got that right. They were never in the game last night after WSU went on that huge run to start the secod half. What was it, 20-6 or something? Made me ill.

Surprised Arizona is still an 8 in most people's eyes. Bad loss to Wazzu last night. Sweep is looking likely this weekend. Need to take care of business at home next weekend.
