    So at what point should we start begging/bargaining/praying that Nash is dialed in for this game? Should we hold-off until the the first 5 minutes? Halftime? Or just start now?

  • dooley

    We are going to need to be fired up and ready to play because you know Oregon has extra motivation being slotted as a 12 seed.

    I want to see that first half against Baylor for a whole game this time.

    • Nate

      I don’t care if you’re playing Stillwater’s JV team – you’re playing in the freaking NCAA tournament, the best sporting event on the planet. If you can’t get fired up and ready to play then you shouldn’t be there.

        The NCAA Tournament can’t touch the Masters.

          I would like to combine the first 2 rounds of March Madness with “moving day” and the back 9 on Sunday. Doesn’t get any better than that.

        • Nate

          LOVE the Masters, but it’s not even in the same universe as the NCAA tourney for me.

  • G-Block

    My bracket is in, ready to be busted.

    Regarding Amanda Marcun Enfield: I most respecfully say “SHAZAM!!!”

    I woukd have drove her from NYC to BOS or LA or London. DUH!

    That video was hard to watch towards the end. Luke Schenscher was my mortal enemy. It truly amazes me how one can hate someone who they don’t know at all so much.
