    All right, Saint Mary's making the Round of 64, I see you...

    Now, let's go LaSalle tonight!

    And, the tournament started out well. First game comes down to the last shot. I hope that's a good omen for a good tournament.

    If Michigan gets taken out in the first round it will be.

    Alright - Madness starts tomorrow. I've got the day off work, but I'll have to take Mrs Inty to the airport, cutting into some of my viewing, plus probably (depending on health) a trip do the AO party downtown.

    I've settled on my Final Four, and I went with a gimmick - Indiana, Ohio State, Michigan State, and Michigan.

    Tip off time! I'll let @Darth McClain decide if he wants to split this off into a separate "Live Chat" thread.

    The game: Michigan State vs. Valparaiso
    The Pick: Sparty
    Rooting for: Sparty

    A good couple friends of ours have ties to Michigan State and Memphis, who would play in the next round if they both win. Obviously, I'm rooting for that. ;)

    Yeah, aside from Roy, Izzo is my homeboy. Pulling for Sparty.

    Yes, I like the Live Chat threads. I'm stuck on my phone...Inty, could you set it up?

    Also rooting for MSU for this one.

    Brad Stevens tells UCLA to get lost and will stay on as head coach of Butler.

    UCLA got Alford. He's been pretty good at New Mexico, but there will be a lot more scrutiny at Westwood.

    I don't know that I would want my son to play for him, to be honest. Signed a ten-year contact ten days ago and now bolts. Hate that NCAA has no reprieve for his recruits to leave.

    I don't think I could have stopped myself from knocking Rice's head off, in self-defense, the first time he heaved a ball at my head from point-blank range. Pretty disturbing video from Rutgers.

    He should have been fired as soon as the AD saw the tape and informed the President. I don't know how you let somebody like that stay on.

    Really just reeks in the same way Penn State did, albeit a little less intense. But similar in the way that the outrage didn't come along until Deadspin and Outside the Lines got the raw evidence.

    The AD really needs to go too. I watched First Take on this, and for once, I'm in complete agreement with Skip Bayless, the AD either needs to resign or get canned himself.

    Maybe the guy saw that Rutgers was heading to the B1G, and thought "hey, I need to incorporate some Bobby Knight, but take it to the EXTREME"

    Thing is, it's looking more and more like he did some of the same at his previous school as well.

    Right along with the university president. They both watched this tape months ago.

    ESPN is reporting two seperate letters one calling for the AD to resign and run calling for the President to resign are circulating.
