Who here follows college basketball?

I'm a Rutgers fan, but as usual they're not ranked this year haha. So far this season I've been loving Kentucky. They're ranked 3rd at the moment, but I love John Wall and I hope they keep up the good work. I like a lot of other players too: Booker from Clemson, though I don't even think Clemson is ranked. Haringody from Notre Dame is the guy I love to hate.

Top 20 at the moment...

1. Kansas
2. Villanova
3. Kentucky
4. Syracuse
5. Michigan State
6. West Virginia
7. Purdue
8. Georgetown
9. Duke
10. Texas
11. Kansas Sate
12. Brigham Young University
13. Gonzaga
14. Tennessee
15. Butler
16. Wisconsin
17. Temple
18. Ohio State
19. Georgia Tech
20. Vanderbilt

I watch a bunch of college bball. It's probably my favorite sport to watch along with college football.

Why Rutgers?

It's hard not to love Kentucky, especially for Wildcat fans who had to endure several mediocre years. They may be too young to reach their full potential, but they are playing really well. Know what you mean about Harangody...he's so fugly! Although that shouldn't matter, it just does. He's such a white boy--surprised he doesn't play for Duke.

Kansas is incredible, but I hope they don't win it again.

Same. I also prefer NCAA basketball to professional basketball.

Because that's my school :)

That place kinda sucks lol but yeah Fat Sandwiches are infamous at Rutgers and everywhere actually (they're featured on a lot of food or travel shows). I personally don't like them... I can't bring myself to eat them lol but I know they're considered the best "drunk food" ever. There's all different types of Fat Sandwiches. Next time you should get one from The Grease Trucks.

Yep, Ohio over Michigan 66-55. Not really surprising, Michigan hasn't been any good as basketball since the Fab Five.
When large numbers of otherwise-law abiding people break specific laws en masse, it's usually a fault that lies with the law. - Unknown

Turner has been leading an Ohio State tear...heard some analysts suggest he should be considered for player of the year. Who is this year's player of the year?

The Big Ten has some strong teams; I think they're gonna make some noise in the tourney. Just hoping my team--the Illini--get in.

Omfg. Yes, Even Turner... after that game winning 3 he made in the last 2 seconds of the game against Michigan! That was one of the best games I've seen in awhile. The last 9 seconds were ace.

The Big East is the best conference IMO. My team (Rutgers) plays there but they suck ;P

There were some great finishes. Did you see Kentucky Miss St.?

Unfortunately, Turner's Buckeyes knocked my Illini out of the Big Ten Tournament in double overtime, and we didn't get into the NCAAs! It was pretty disappointing thinking they'd get in and watching selection Sunday and being denied.

Hard to argue with that--the Big East being the best, that is. Saw that you're pulling for the Orangemen, Irish and Wildcats--definitely a Big East fan. Hummel's injury for Purdue is gonna weaken the Big Ten's performance, along with the injuries and chemistry issues of Mich St. I have loved watching Villanova play for the last four or five years--their style of play is so exciting! I really look forward to them possibly playing Duke in the Elite Eight. West Virginia and Georgetown--two more Big East teams that could make a deep run. Did you see Georgetown thrash Duke earlier this year? Taken to the woodshed...

I have always liked KU and Texas. But neither of them are still in the running lol. At least Duke and Kentucky are still in. Those are my top four teams by the way. I've liked all of them for a long time

The Butler-Syracuse game is in an hour.

Any last words, Syracuse fans?
I'll get by with a little help from my friends.

Love seeing Mich St. advance. There can't be too many people who picked this Final Four--Duke, Butler, Michigan State, and West Virginia.

Butler was a #5 seed. Not many people expected them to make it. Most picked Syracuse to be in.

I thought Syracuse was going all the way. I liked Syracuse, Notre Dame, Duke, Kentucky and Kansas. I thought at LEAST 2 of them would be in the final 4. I was wrong lol.

Yea, this year was really insane. Two 5 seeds in the Final Four. Freaky.
