NCAA Tournament Simulation

A group over in the Reddit CBB community is simulating the NCAA tournament in College Hoops 2K8, recording the games, and premiering the games on their YouTube channel. You can watch the games "live" and chat with other viewers in realtime.

No, it's not very realistic.

Yes, it's way more fun than you'd expect.

The First Four wrapped up tonight. Texas Tech won a close one against NC State on a 3-pointer by Moretti with 3.6 seconds left on the clock. The Texas Tech men's basketball twitter gave their approval to both the result and Moretti's late-game heroics.

(7) Illinois will be playing (10) Utah State on Fri at 3:00p ET.

You can find more info about the bracket and simulations here.

I really wish they would just replay last years games - yes - we know the outcomes - but nothing still like the opportunity to watch a good tourney. Heck, they replayed last years golf tourney and some old Big Ten tourney games. This would be much more fun to watch.

Not a simulation or tourney game, but his year’s Illini at Wisconsin on BTN right now...

If we made it past Creighton, I would have had all the confidence in the world that we'd beat MSU in our third meeting. Alas, 'twas not to be.

After watching parts of these simulations and how the game chat reacts I'm actually a little giddy about the Illinois simmed game tomorrow, lol.


I'm lame...

Nah, no shame in trying to have a little fun in these stressful times. The game chat makes it so much better. I'm also looking forward to the Illinois game tomorrow! Going to be a good time (hope we win).
