NCAA Tournament

I've stayed essentially completely uninterested in the Tournament since we lost. I am still so disappointed about it. Having said that, I think I will be rooting for Gonzaga to finish off their undefeated season. I just can't root for Baylor, UCLA, or Sampson.

Typically abhorrent behavior from the NCAA. They do not care about their student athletes’ well-being mentally, emotionally, or physically; the only reason they “care” about their student athletes is for their usefulness to make money.
Exactly. The NCAA's top priority is, and always will be $$$. The welfare of the student athlete pales by comparison.

Just wondering when the last time there was a final four without a team from east of the Mississippi River.....guessing it's been awhile.

As others have mentioned, yeah first time ever. There have been several Final Fours with 2 teams from west of the Mississippi. Only the following Final Fours had 3 teams from west of the Mississippi:
-1955: San Francisco, La Salle, Colorado, Iowa
-1956: San Francisco, Iowa, Temple, SMU

Bruins have a likability factor that Gonzaga lacks. Timme's antics last game were enough for me.
Maybe it’s just me, but Timme looks like anything but a P5 athlete- more like an extra from a dodgeball movie sequel.

Maybe it’s just envy. I am sure he gets more chicks than I do and has a better future in the NBA than me.

+1 on the uninterested comment. I don’t really care either,

BUT

I just can’t put an undefeated Gonzaga season on the same level as the others because of the cupcake conference they play in.

Sort of reminds you of another great Gonzaga player don't it (though they obviously play different positions):

Don't know what it was about him but to me when he ran he always looked like someone who had a stick stuck up their backside.

Yeah he’s Mitch Mcgary...without the weed “addiction”.

I disagree slightly since they challenge themselves so hard in non conference, but the bottom half of that league is weak.
