    Asheville got robbed. Two blatant missed calls at the end with the goaltending and non-existant lane violation. They had a real shot at that one.

    I didn't really have a problem with it.

    BYU + 6
    Long Beach St + 4
    Virginia Commonwealth + 6.5
    UNLV - 5.5
    Louisville -7
    Baylor - 8
    Anyone besides me who took those picks definately DID NOT get their money up. Their money went way down.

    Lets strap it back up and try again. See how these do today.....

    San Diego St. + 2.5
    Alabama - 1
    Georgetown -3
    St Louis + 3
    Purdue + 2
    Xavier + 2

    Btw, I caught a major break twice yesterday. By the time gametime rolled around and I actually placed the straight wagers on Louisville and Baylor, the spreads had dipped a half point and both covered by that amount. I needed all the luck I could get yesterday just to stay a float. Was unlucky in the Southern Miss game against K st, but caught a huge break with those other 2.

    Youth and inexperience hurt us. Too many errors down the stretch.

    We just have to keep getting better... that's all there is to it.

    It was a fun ride and I enjoyed every minute of it. RTR.

    Once again, preseason ratings dominate the irrelevance of regular season indications. Florida was Top 10 in every preseason power rating while Virginia was somewhere between 50th and 75th. Yet 5 months later they allow me to bet Florida -2 against Virginia.

    Sometimes I can't believe they allow the use of preseason ratings to bet bowl games or basketball postseason. Too much of an edge.

    But overall the NCAA tournament is not a great investment opportunity, certainly not compared to the NIT, or women's basketball, or February college basketball. I don't know anyone who bets sports all year who gets carried away with this tournament. The lines are very good, with a handful of exceptions when they don't align with preseason realities, and the lack of a home court eliminates one of the great advantages of sports betting, the ability to evaluate whether or not the extra 4 points for home court is justified or can be nullified by the road team.

    Besides, every number moves toward Ken Pomeroy's line. It's not 90% of the time, it's 100%. He's easily the sharpest and most respected college basketball analyst these days, even if few outside of betting circles have heard of him. You don't get as many bargains as the ones that existed before KenPom.com became prominent.

    Obscene that Drexel didn't make the tournament when Pomeroy had them 34th in his power ratings. My preseason number on Drexel was 40th. The Colonial conference gets a ridiculous lack of respect, which is how you can still get +6.5 on VCU against Wichita State. I watched the Colonial tournament a couple of weeks ago. VCU, Drexel, Old Dominion and George Mason are all tournament caliber teams. Unfortunately, the Colonial was so imbalanced with teams like Towson at the bottom that it allowed power conference snobs to denounce the Colonial based on strength of schedule and keep Drexel out.

    Good blowout win by the Gators today in spite of a pretty god-awful shooting performance in that 1st half.

    And don't look now, but Norfolk St. is coming dangerously close to torpedoing a lot of people's brackets, mine included.
    but when the trumpets blew again and the knights charged, the name they cried was "Stannis! Stannis! STANNIS!"
