In the chat? In the room? In the NCAA tournament?

Does basketball have an infield fly rule, and can you explain it? We will see you at 12:30 but we don’t know anything about basketball so we’ll just be listening and learning.

Can’t wait MB. Seems that the Selection Committee did a pretty good job this year. What do you think Mark, any glaring omissions?

Will any team from the state of Georgia be there? No. We stink at basketball.

Mark I have not looked at your bracket yet.I’d like your opinion on Indiana.Great story and Crean looks like he has turned the program.However they lost their point guard and none of the players have any tournament experience.I have them gone in their opening game.I want to say the first round game but I don’t want to rile the NCAA..

Your thoughts?

I wish Drexel had made it. But that was my only real gripe.

I don’t like IU’s chances, Bill.

Wonder why he wasn’t charged with dwi?

Smith was arrested for possession of marijuana shortly after being stopped for a traffic offense on Highway 431 in Alabama’s Henry County at 11:41 p.m. Sunday. An officer detected the odor of marijuana in the 2007 Dodge Charger Smith was driving and a bag of marijuana was discovered under a seat during a search of the vehicle

But I would be happy to discuss Georgia hoops, if someone deigns to inquire.

havent done this in a while, but here goes:

its seems only a nitwit would deign
or a fellow that’s obviously insane
inquire about Georgia hoop ball
in a public forum or at all
or maybe the guy likes to feign

We are waiting with bated breath. Did you remember to set your clocks forward?

I just read that Dick Vitale has picked Kentucky to “cut down the nets in New Orleans.”

Now I don’t know whether to pick KY because MB didn’t – or not pick them because Dickey V did! :-)

Mark…quite nice that you are chatting with the home-team fans.

Its the least that you can do…with you having run Ga Tech’s best ever coach out of town. I told you last year: Tech is no ACC powerhouse. Prediction:

The Jackets will not smell the tourney for 4 years.

Good job Marko! I wonder why you aren’t riding Mike Smith too?

Thoughts on Louisville – Davidson? Looks like an intriguing match up early on. The Ville has been either really good or really bad all season.

Hey Mark, do you see Murray’s Racers making it thru a couple of rounds this year. They are a fun team to watch but worry about their inside game. Isiah Cannon is the real deal.

South Dakota!!! DO you think anyone knows what is coming their way? Why was Wichita State and VCU disrespected by being a round one match-up? How in the world was Missouri not a No. 1 seed?

What are the odds that Ky will win the tournament? How often does the number one rated team actually win?

Thanks for all who participated. That was far less painless than I imagined. (Though I must note: I wasn’t on the viewing end.)

Murray State at 30-1 given a #6 seed destroys any credibility the selection committee and the NCAA has! This is all about MONEY and what the NCAA can get versus real competition! The NCAA is a bunch of parasites from academia that have found the perfect place to make a lot of MONEY with no accountability! After last year, the FIX is in and the committee(at TV’s urging) have manipulated so only a 1 or 2 seed has a chance of being in New Orleans! This used to be my favorite week of the year to watch basketball, but the NCAA is so corrupt that I will boycott the tournament! I look forward to the day that we pay these athletes instead of using them to support an outdated and corrupt organization like the NCAA! I heard the President will be at the opening session which seems perfect! A man with no credibility hanging out with an organization with no credibility!
