NCAA Championship Game Thread

I have decided that the last article and its comments has run its course so let turn toward the NCAA BB championship tomorrow at 9:20 pm. This subject should be pretty straight forward and by the time the game rolls around we’ll know if Tex’s prediction that Heather Lyke awakens from her coma long enough to fire our own BB coach. Here is an early post of that game’s thread. I’m sure a lot of us will be watching and I look forward to commenting on it with you all…

Well, even though Pitt fell just a bit short at playing for the title this coming Monday evening (is that ‘optimistic’ enough for some on here?) it should be a fantastic game to watch, and for the kids, to have played in. It has all the things you want to see – a Gonzaga Bulldogs team that is 31-0 and just won a fabulously close game against UCLA and then the Baylor Bear’s underdog squad who was an #1 seed, and like the Energizer Bunny – just keeps on moving on.

Following are some websites that might help you all get ready to cheer whoever you are rooting for onto a win.  These can be used for in-game commenting research also.

Guess who is 176-152 over those same 10 years with a winning percentage of 53%?

If you guessed the University of Pittsburgh you win the Pitt POV’s “Firm Grasp of the Obvious” award for the 2020-21 season!!

At this time – 3:00 pm on April 4th Gonzaga is giving away five points to Baylor on the betting spread.

Enjoy – and hope to see you Monday night…
